naginterfaces.library.lapacklin.dgttrf(n, dl, d, du)[source]

dgttrf computes the factorization of a real tridiagonal matrix .

For full information please refer to the NAG Library document for f07cd

https://www.nag.com/numeric/nl/nagdoc_27.3/flhtml/f07/f07cdf.html

Parameters
nint

, the order of the matrix .

dlfloat, array-like, shape

Must contain the subdiagonal elements of the matrix .

dfloat, array-like, shape

Must contain the diagonal elements of the matrix .

dufloat, array-like, shape

Must contain the superdiagonal elements of the matrix .

Returns
dlfloat, ndarray, shape

Is overwritten by the multipliers that define the matrix of the factorization of .

dfloat, ndarray, shape

Is overwritten by the diagonal elements of the upper triangular matrix from the factorization of .

dufloat, ndarray, shape

Is overwritten by the elements of the first superdiagonal of .

du2float, ndarray, shape

Contains the elements of the second superdiagonal of .

ipivint, ndarray, shape

Contains the pivot indices that define the permutation matrix . At the th step, row of the matrix was interchanged with row . will always be either or , indicating that a row interchange was not performed.

Raises
NagValueError
(errno )

On entry, error in parameter .

Constraint: .

Warns
NagAlgorithmicWarning
(errno )

Element of the diagonal is exactly zero. The factorization has been completed, but the factor is exactly singular, and division by zero will occur if it is used to solve a system of equations.

Notes

dgttrf uses Gaussian elimination with partial pivoting and row interchanges to factorize the matrix as

where is a permutation matrix, is unit lower triangular with at most one nonzero subdiagonal element in each column, and is an upper triangular band matrix, with two superdiagonals.
