The routine may be called by the names f08aef, nagf_lapackeig_dgeqrf or its LAPACK name dgeqrf.
f08aef forms the factorization of an arbitrary rectangular real matrix. No pivoting is performed.
If , the factorization is given by:
where is an upper triangular matrix and is an orthogonal matrix. It is sometimes more convenient to write the factorization as
which reduces to
where consists of the first columns of , and the remaining columns.
If , is trapezoidal, and the factorization can be written
where is upper triangular and is rectangular.
The matrix is not formed explicitly but is represented as a product of elementary reflectors (see the F08 Chapter Introduction for details). Routines are provided to work with in this representation (see Section 9).
Note also that for any , the information returned in the first columns of the array a represents a factorization of the first columns of the original matrix .

8Parallelism and Performance
Background information to multithreading can be found in the Multithreading documentation.
f08aef is threaded by NAG for parallel execution in multithreaded implementations of the NAG Library.
f08aef 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 total number of floating-point operations is approximately if or if .
To form the orthogonal matrix f08aef may be followed by a call to f08aff
