The function may be called by the names: f01mec or nag_matop_real_mod_chol_perturbed_a.
f01mec computes the positive definite perturbed matrix from the factors provided by a previous call to f01mdc. For a symmetric, possibly indefinite matrix , f01mdc finds the Cheng–Higham modified Cholesky factorization
when . Here is a unit lower triangular matrix, is a permutation matrix, is a symmetric block diagonal matrix (with blocks of order or ). The matrix is not explicitly formed.
If , we compute from the factorization , where is a unit upper triangular matrix.

8Parallelism and Performance
Background information to multithreading can be found in the Multithreading documentation.
f01mec is threaded by NAG for parallel execution in multithreaded implementations of the NAG Library.
f01mec 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 function. Please also consult the Users' Note for your implementation for any additional implementation-specific information.
Arrays are internally allocated by f01mec. The total size of these arrays does not exceed real elements. All allocated memory is freed before return of f01mec.
