## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine dgbtrf (integerM, integerN, integerKL, integerKU, double precision, dimension( ldab, * )AB, integerLDAB, integer, dimension( * )IPIV, integerINFO)

**DGBTRF**

**Purpose:**

```
DGBTRF computes an LU factorization of a real m-by-n band matrix A
using partial pivoting with row interchanges.
This is the blocked version of the algorithm, calling Level 3 BLAS.
```

**Parameters:**

*M*

```
M is INTEGER
The number of rows of the matrix A. M >= 0.
```

*N*

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

*KL*

```
KL is INTEGER
The number of subdiagonals within the band of A. KL >= 0.
```

*KU*

```
KU is INTEGER
The number of superdiagonals within the band of A. KU >= 0.
```

*AB*

```
AB is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (LDAB,N)
On entry, the matrix A in band storage, in rows KL+1 to
2*KL+KU+1; rows 1 to KL of the array need not be set.
The j-th column of A is stored in the j-th column of the
array AB as follows:
AB(kl+ku+1+i-j,j) = A(i,j) for max(1,j-ku)<=i<=min(m,j+kl)
On exit, details of the factorization: U is stored as an
upper triangular band matrix with KL+KU superdiagonals in
rows 1 to KL+KU+1, and the multipliers used during the
factorization are stored in rows KL+KU+2 to 2*KL+KU+1.
See below for further details.
```

*LDAB*

```
LDAB is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array AB. LDAB >= 2*KL+KU+1.
```

*IPIV*

```
IPIV is INTEGER array, dimension (min(M,N))
The pivot indices; for 1 <= i <= min(M,N), row i of the
matrix was interchanged with row IPIV(i).
```

*INFO*

```
INFO is INTEGER
= 0: successful exit
< 0: if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value
> 0: if INFO = +i, U(i,i) is exactly zero. The factorization
has been completed, but the factor U is exactly
singular, and division by zero will occur if it is used
to solve a system of equations.

**Further Details:**

```
The band storage scheme is illustrated by the following example, when
M = N = 6, KL = 2, KU = 1:
On entry: On exit:
* * * + + + * * * u14 u25 u36
* * + + + + * * u13 u24 u35 u46
* a12 a23 a34 a45 a56 * u12 u23 u34 u45 u56
a11 a22 a33 a44 a55 a66 u11 u22 u33 u44 u55 u66
a21 a32 a43 a54 a65 * m21 m32 m43 m54 m65 *
a31 a42 a53 a64 * * m31 m42 m53 m64 * *
Array elements marked * are not used by the routine; elements marked
+ need not be set on entry, but are required by the routine to store
elements of U because of fill-in resulting from the row interchanges.
