# NAG Library Routine DocumentF01QJF

Note:  before using this routine, please read the Users' Note for your implementation to check the interpretation of bold italicised terms and other implementation-dependent details.

## 1  Purpose

F01QJF finds the $RQ$ factorization of the real $m$ by $n$ ($m\le n$) matrix $A$, so that $A$ is reduced to upper triangular form by means of orthogonal transformations from the right.

## 2  Specification

 SUBROUTINE F01QJF ( M, N, A, LDA, ZETA, IFAIL)
 INTEGER M, N, LDA, IFAIL REAL (KIND=nag_wp) A(LDA,*), ZETA(M)

## 3  Description

The $m$ by $n$ matrix $A$ is factorized as
where $P$ is an $n$ by $n$ orthogonal matrix and $R$ is an $m$ by $m$ upper triangular matrix.
$P$ is given as a sequence of Householder transformation matrices
 $P=Pm…P2P1,$
the ($m-k+1$)th transformation matrix, ${P}_{k}$, being used to introduce zeros into the $k$th row of $A$. ${P}_{k}$ has the form
 $Pk=I-ukukT,$
where
 $uk= wk ζk 0 zk ,$
${\zeta }_{k}$ is a scalar, ${w}_{k}$ is an $\left(k-1\right)$ element vector and ${z}_{k}$ is an $\left(n-m\right)$ element vector. ${u}_{k}$ is chosen to annihilate the elements in the $k$th row of $A$.
The vector ${u}_{k}$ is returned in the $k$th element of ZETA and in the $k$th row of A, such that ${\zeta }_{k}$ is in ${\mathbf{ZETA}}\left(k\right)$, the elements of ${w}_{k}$ are in ${\mathbf{A}}\left(k,1\right),\dots ,{\mathbf{A}}\left(k,k-1\right)$ and the elements of ${z}_{k}$ are in ${\mathbf{A}}\left(k,m+1\right),\dots ,{\mathbf{A}}\left(k,n\right)$. The elements of $R$ are returned in the upper triangular part of A.

## 5  Parameters

1:     $\mathrm{M}$ – INTEGERInput
On entry: $m$, the number of rows of the matrix $A$.
When ${\mathbf{M}}=0$ then an immediate return is effected.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{M}}\ge 0$.
2:     $\mathrm{N}$ – INTEGERInput
On entry: $n$, the number of columns of the matrix $A$.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{N}}\ge {\mathbf{M}}$.
3:     $\mathrm{A}\left({\mathbf{LDA}},*\right)$ – REAL (KIND=nag_wp) arrayInput/Output
Note: the second dimension of the array A must be at least $\mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,{\mathbf{N}}\right)$.
On entry: the leading $m$ by $n$ part of the array A must contain the matrix to be factorized.
On exit: the $m$ by $m$ upper triangular part of A will contain the upper triangular matrix $R$, and the $m$ by $m$ strictly lower triangular part of A and the $m$ by $\left(n-m\right)$ rectangular part of A to the right of the upper triangular part will contain details of the factorization as described in Section 3.
4:     $\mathrm{LDA}$ – INTEGERInput
On entry: the first dimension of the array A as declared in the (sub)program from which F01QJF is called.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{LDA}}\ge \mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,{\mathbf{M}}\right)$.
5:     $\mathrm{ZETA}\left({\mathbf{M}}\right)$ – REAL (KIND=nag_wp) arrayOutput
On exit: ${\mathbf{ZETA}}\left(k\right)$ contains the scalar ${\zeta }_{k}$ for the $\left(m-k+1\right)$th transformation. If ${P}_{k}=I$ then ${\mathbf{ZETA}}\left(k\right)=0.0$, otherwise ${\mathbf{ZETA}}\left(k\right)$ contains ${\zeta }_{k}$ as described in Section 3 and ${\zeta }_{k}$ is always in the range $\left(1.0,\sqrt{2.0}\right)$.
6:     $\mathrm{IFAIL}$ – INTEGERInput/Output
On entry: IFAIL must be set to $0$, $-1\text{​ or ​}1$. If you are unfamiliar with this parameter you should refer to Section 3.3 in the Essential Introduction for details.
For environments where it might be inappropriate to halt program execution when an error is detected, the value $-1\text{​ or ​}1$ is recommended. If the output of error messages is undesirable, then the value $1$ is recommended. Otherwise, if you are not familiar with this parameter, the recommended value is $0$. When the value $-\mathbf{1}\text{​ or ​}\mathbf{1}$ is used it is essential to test the value of IFAIL on exit.
On exit: ${\mathbf{IFAIL}}={\mathbf{0}}$ unless the routine detects an error or a warning has been flagged (see Section 6).

## 6  Error Indicators and Warnings

If on entry ${\mathbf{IFAIL}}={\mathbf{0}}$ or $-{\mathbf{1}}$, explanatory error messages are output on the current error message unit (as defined by X04AAF).
Errors or warnings detected by the routine:
${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=-1$
 On entry, ${\mathbf{M}}<0$, or ${\mathbf{N}}<{\mathbf{M}}$, or ${\mathbf{LDA}}<{\mathbf{M}}$.
${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=-99$
See Section 3.8 in the Essential Introduction for further information.
${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=-399$

See Section 3.7 in the Essential Introduction for further information.
${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=-999$
Dynamic memory allocation failed.
See Section 3.6 in the Essential Introduction for further information.

## 7  Accuracy

The computed factors $R$ and $P$ satisfy the relation
 $R 0 PT=A+E,$
where
 $E≤cε A,$
$\epsilon$ is the machine precision (see X02AJF), $c$ is a modest function of $m$ and $n$, and $‖.‖$ denotes the spectral (two) norm.

## 8  Parallelism and Performance

F01QJF is not threaded by NAG in any implementation.
F01QJF makes calls to BLAS and/or LAPACK routines, which may be threaded within the vendor library used by this implementation. Consult the documentation for the vendor library for further information.
Please consult the X06 Chapter Introduction for information on how to control and interrogate the OpenMP environment used within this routine. Please also consult the Users' Note for your implementation for any additional implementation-specific information.

The approximate number of floating-point operations is given by $2×{m}^{2}\left(3n-m\right)/3$.
The first $k$ rows of the orthogonal matrix ${P}^{\mathrm{T}}$ can be obtained by calling F01QKF, which overwrites the $k$ rows of ${P}^{\mathrm{T}}$ on the first $k$ rows of the array A. ${P}^{\mathrm{T}}$ is obtained by the call:

IFAIL = 0
CALL F01QKF('Separate',M,N,K,A,LDA,ZETA,WORK,IFAIL)
$\mathrm{WORK}$ must be a $\mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(m-1,k-m,1\right)$ element array. If $\mathrm{K}$ is larger than $\mathrm{M}$, then A must have been declared to have at least $\mathrm{K}$ rows.
Operations involving the matrix $R$ can readily be performed by the Level 2 BLAS routines F06PFF (DTRMV) and F06PJF (DTRSV) (see Chapter F06), but note that no test for near singularity of $R$ is incorporated into F06PJF (DTRSV). If $R$ is singular, or nearly singular then F02WUF can be used to determine the singular value decomposition of $R$.
