CTPRFS

Purpose:

``` CTPRFS provides error bounds and backward error estimates for the
solution to a system of linear equations with a triangular packed
coefficient matrix.

The solution matrix X must be computed by CTPTRS or some other
means before entering this routine.  CTPRFS does not do iterative
refinement because doing so cannot improve the backward error.```
Parameters:

UPLO

```          UPLO is CHARACTER*1
= 'U':  A is upper triangular;
= 'L':  A is lower triangular.```

TRANS

```          TRANS is CHARACTER*1
Specifies the form of the system of equations:
= 'N':  A * X = B     (No transpose)
= 'T':  A**T * X = B  (Transpose)
= 'C':  A**H * X = B  (Conjugate transpose)```

DIAG

```          DIAG is CHARACTER*1
= 'N':  A is non-unit triangular;
= 'U':  A is unit triangular.```

N

```          N is INTEGER
The order of the matrix A.  N >= 0.```

NRHS

```          NRHS is INTEGER
The number of right hand sides, i.e., the number of columns
of the matrices B and X.  NRHS >= 0.```

AP

```          AP is COMPLEX array, dimension (N*(N+1)/2)
The upper or lower triangular matrix A, packed columnwise in
a linear array.  The j-th column of A is stored in the array
AP as follows:
if UPLO = 'U', AP(i + (j-1)*j/2) = A(i,j) for 1<=i<=j;
if UPLO = 'L', AP(i + (j-1)*(2n-j)/2) = A(i,j) for j<=i<=n.
If DIAG = 'U', the diagonal elements of A are not referenced
and are assumed to be 1.```

B

```          B is COMPLEX array, dimension (LDB,NRHS)
The right hand side matrix B.```

LDB

```          LDB is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array B.  LDB >= max(1,N).```

X

```          X is COMPLEX array, dimension (LDX,NRHS)
The solution matrix X.```

LDX

```          LDX is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array X.  LDX >= max(1,N).```

FERR

```          FERR is REAL array, dimension (NRHS)
The estimated forward error bound for each solution vector
X(j) (the j-th column of the solution matrix X).
If XTRUE is the true solution corresponding to X(j), FERR(j)
is an estimated upper bound for the magnitude of the largest
element in (X(j) - XTRUE) divided by the magnitude of the
largest element in X(j).  The estimate is as reliable as
the estimate for RCOND, and is almost always a slight
overestimate of the true error.```

BERR

```          BERR is REAL array, dimension (NRHS)
The componentwise relative backward error of each solution
vector X(j) (i.e., the smallest relative change in
any element of A or B that makes X(j) an exact solution).```

WORK

`          WORK is COMPLEX array, dimension (2*N)`

RWORK

`          RWORK is REAL array, dimension (N)`

INFO

```          INFO is INTEGER
= 0:  successful exit
< 0:  if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value```
