The routine may be called by the names f08cvf, nagf_lapackeig_zgerqf or its LAPACK name zgerqf.
f08cvf forms the factorization of an arbitrary rectangular real matrix. If , the factorization is given by
where is an lower triangular matrix and is an unitary matrix. If the factorization is given by
where is an upper trapezoidal matrix and is again an unitary matrix. In the case where the factorization can be expressed as
where consists of the first rows of and the remaining rows.
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).

On exit: the scalar factors of the elementary reflectors.
6: – Complex (Kind=nag_wp) arrayWorkspace
On exit: if , the real part of contains the minimum value of lwork required for optimal performance.
7: – IntegerInput
On entry: the dimension of the array work as declared in the (sub)program from which f08cvf is called.
If , a workspace query is assumed; the routine only calculates the optimal size of the work array, returns this value as the first entry of the work array, and no error message related to lwork is issued.

8Parallelism and Performance
Background information to multithreading can be found in the Multithreading documentation.
f08cvf 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 unitary matrix f08cvf may be followed by a call to f08cwf
but note that the first dimension of the array a must be at least n, which may be larger than was required by f08cvf. When , it is often only the first rows of that are required and they may be formed
by the call:
To apply to an arbitrary real rectangular matrix , f08cvf may be followed by a call to f08cxf
. For example:
