NAG Toolbox: nag_lapack_ztftri (f07wx)


    1  Purpose
    2  Syntax
    7  Accuracy
    9  Example


nag_lapack_ztftri (f07wx) computes the inverse of a complex triangular matrix stored in Rectangular Full Packed (RFP) format.


[ar, info] = f07wx(transr, uplo, diag, n, ar)
[ar, info] = nag_lapack_ztftri(transr, uplo, diag, n, ar)


nag_lapack_ztftri (f07wx) forms the inverse of a complex triangular matrix A, stored using RFP format. The RFP storage format is described in Rectangular Full Packed (RFP) Storage in the F07 Chapter Introduction. Note that the inverse of an upper (lower) triangular matrix is also upper (lower) triangular.

Compulsory Input Parameters

1:     transr – string (length ≥ 1)
Specifies whether the normal RFP representation of A or its conjugate transpose is stored.
The matrix A is stored in normal RFP format.
The conjugate transpose of the RFP representation of the matrix A is stored.
Constraint: transr='N' or 'C'.
2:     uplo – string (length ≥ 1)
Specifies whether A is upper or lower triangular.
A is upper triangular.
A is lower triangular.
Constraint: uplo='U' or 'L'.
3:     diag – string (length ≥ 1)
Indicates whether A is a nonunit or unit triangular matrix.
A is a nonunit triangular matrix.
A is a unit triangular matrix; the diagonal elements are not referenced and are assumed to be 1.
Constraint: diag='N' or 'U'.
4:     n int64int32nag_int scalar
n, the order of the matrix A.
Constraint: n0.
5:     arn×n+1/2 – complex array
The upper or lower triangular part (as specified by uplo) of the n by n Hermitian matrix A, in either normal or transposed RFP format (as specified by transr). The storage format is described in detail in Rectangular Full Packed (RFP) Storage in the F07 Chapter Introduction.

Optional Input Parameters


Output Parameters

1:     arn×n+1/2 – complex array
A stores A-1, in the same storage format as A.
2:     info int64int32nag_int scalar
info=0 unless the function detects an error (see Error Indicators and Warnings).

Error Indicators and Warnings

Cases prefixed with W are classified as warnings and do not generate an error of type NAG:error_n. See nag_issue_warnings.

If info=-i, argument i had an illegal value. An explanatory message is output, and execution of the program is terminated.
W  info>0
Diagonal element _ of A is exactly zero. A is singular its inverse cannot be computed.


The computed inverse X satisfies
XA-IcnεXA ,  
where cn is a modest linear function of n, and ε is the machine precision.
Note that a similar bound for AX-I cannot be guaranteed, although it is almost always satisfied.
The computed inverse satisfies the forward error bound
X-A-1cnεA-1AX .  
See Du Croz and Higham (1992).

Further Comments

The total number of real floating-point operations is approximately 43n3.
The real analogue of this function is nag_lapack_dtftri (f07wk).


This example computes the inverse of the matrix A, where
A= 4.78+4.56i 0.00+0.00i 0.00+0.00i 0.00+0.00i 2.00-0.30i -4.11+1.25i 0.00+0.00i 0.00+0.00i 2.89-1.34i 2.36-4.25i 4.15+0.80i 0.00+0.00i -1.89+1.15i 0.04-3.69i -0.02+0.46i 0.33-0.26i  
and is stored using RFP format.
