**DGTSVX computes the solution to system of linear equations A * X = B for GT matrices**

**Purpose:**

```
DGTSVX uses the LU factorization to compute the solution to a real
system of linear equations A * X = B or A**T * X = B,
where A is a tridiagonal matrix of order N and X and B are N-by-NRHS
matrices.
Error bounds on the solution and a condition estimate are also
provided.
```

**Description:**

```
The following steps are performed:
1. If FACT = 'N', the LU decomposition is used to factor the matrix A
as A = L * U, where L is a product of permutation and unit lower
bidiagonal matrices and U is upper triangular with nonzeros in
only the main diagonal and first two superdiagonals.
2. If some U(i,i)=0, so that U is exactly singular, then the routine
returns with INFO = i. Otherwise, the factored form of A is used
to estimate the condition number of the matrix A. If the
reciprocal of the condition number is less than machine precision,
INFO = N+1 is returned as a warning, but the routine still goes on
to solve for X and compute error bounds as described below.
3. The system of equations is solved for X using the factored form
of A.
4. Iterative refinement is applied to improve the computed solution
matrix and calculate error bounds and backward error estimates
for it.
```

**Parameters:**

*FACT*

```
FACT is CHARACTER*1
Specifies whether or not the factored form of A has been
supplied on entry.
= 'F': DLF, DF, DUF, DU2, and IPIV contain the factored
form of A; DL, D, DU, DLF, DF, DUF, DU2 and IPIV
will not be modified.
= 'N': The matrix will be copied to DLF, DF, and DUF
and factored.
```

*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 = Transpose)
```

*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 matrix B. NRHS >= 0.
```

*DL*

```
DL is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (N-1)
The (n-1) subdiagonal elements of A.
```

*D*

```
D is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (N)
The n diagonal elements of A.
```

*DU*

```
DU is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (N-1)
The (n-1) superdiagonal elements of A.
```

*DLF*

```
DLF is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (N-1)
If FACT = 'F', then DLF is an input argument and on entry
contains the (n-1) multipliers that define the matrix L from
the LU factorization of A as computed by DGTTRF.
If FACT = 'N', then DLF is an output argument and on exit
contains the (n-1) multipliers that define the matrix L from
the LU factorization of A.
```

*DF*

```
DF is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (N)
If FACT = 'F', then DF is an input argument and on entry
contains the n diagonal elements of the upper triangular
matrix U from the LU factorization of A.
If FACT = 'N', then DF is an output argument and on exit
contains the n diagonal elements of the upper triangular
matrix U from the LU factorization of A.
```

*DUF*

```
DUF is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (N-1)
If FACT = 'F', then DUF is an input argument and on entry
contains the (n-1) elements of the first superdiagonal of U.
If FACT = 'N', then DUF is an output argument and on exit
contains the (n-1) elements of the first superdiagonal of U.
```

*DU2*

```
DU2 is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (N-2)
If FACT = 'F', then DU2 is an input argument and on entry
contains the (n-2) elements of the second superdiagonal of
U.
If FACT = 'N', then DU2 is an output argument and on exit
contains the (n-2) elements of the second superdiagonal of
U.
```

*IPIV*

```
IPIV is INTEGER array, dimension (N)
If FACT = 'F', then IPIV is an input argument and on entry
contains the pivot indices from the LU factorization of A as
computed by DGTTRF.
If FACT = 'N', then IPIV is an output argument and on exit
contains the pivot indices from the LU factorization of A;
row i of the matrix was interchanged with row IPIV(i).
IPIV(i) will always be either i or i+1; IPIV(i) = i indicates
a row interchange was not required.
```

*B*

```
B is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (LDB,NRHS)
The N-by-NRHS right hand side matrix B.
```

*LDB*

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

*X*

```
X is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (LDX,NRHS)
If INFO = 0 or INFO = N+1, the N-by-NRHS solution matrix X.
```

*LDX*

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

*RCOND*

```
RCOND is DOUBLE PRECISION
The estimate of the reciprocal condition number of the matrix
A. If RCOND is less than the machine precision (in
particular, if RCOND = 0), the matrix is singular to working
precision. This condition is indicated by a return code of
INFO > 0.
```

*FERR*

```
FERR is DOUBLE PRECISION 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 DOUBLE PRECISION 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 DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (3*N)`

*IWORK*

`IWORK is INTEGER array, dimension (N)`

*INFO*

```
INFO is INTEGER
= 0: successful exit
< 0: if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value
> 0: if INFO = i, and i is
<= N: U(i,i) is exactly zero. The factorization
has not been completed unless i = N, but the
factor U is exactly singular, so the solution
and error bounds could not be computed.
RCOND = 0 is returned.
= N+1: U is nonsingular, but RCOND is less than machine
precision, meaning that the matrix is singular
to working precision. Nevertheless, the
solution and error bounds are computed because
there are a number of situations where the
computed solution can be more accurate than the
value of RCOND would suggest.
