Element of the diagonal is exactly zero. The factorization has been completed, but the factor is exactly singular, so the solution could not be computed.


dgbsv uses the decomposition with partial pivoting and row interchanges to factor as , where is a permutation matrix, is a product of permutation and unit lower triangular matrices with subdiagonals, and is upper triangular with superdiagonals. The factored form of is then used to solve the system of equations .
