The function may be called by the names: f07wec, nag_lapacklin_dpftrs or nag_dpftrs.
f07wec is used to solve a real symmetric positive definite system of linear equations , the function must be preceded by a call to f07wdc which computes the Cholesky factorization of , stored in RFP format.
The RFP storage format is described in Section 3.4.3 in the F07 Chapter Introduction.
The solution is computed by forward and backward substitution.
If , , where is upper triangular; the solution is computed by solving and then .
If , , where is lower triangular; the solution is computed by solving and then .
