SPFTRS

Purpose:

``` SPFTRS solves a system of linear equations A*X = B with a symmetric
positive definite matrix A using the Cholesky factorization
A = U**T*U or A = L*L**T computed by SPFTRF.```
Parameters

TRANSR

```          TRANSR is CHARACTER*1
= 'N':  The Normal TRANSR of RFP A is stored;
= 'T':  The Transpose TRANSR of RFP A is stored.```

UPLO

```          UPLO is CHARACTER*1
= 'U':  Upper triangle of RFP A is stored;
= 'L':  Lower triangle of RFP A is stored.```

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.```

A

```          A is REAL array, dimension ( N*(N+1)/2 )
The triangular factor U or L from the Cholesky factorization
of RFP A = U**H*U or RFP A = L*L**T, as computed by SPFTRF.
See note below for more details about RFP A.```

B

```          B is REAL array, dimension (LDB,NRHS)
On entry, the right hand side matrix B.
On exit, the solution matrix X.```

LDB

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

INFO

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

Further Details:

```  We first consider Rectangular Full Packed (RFP) Format when N is
even. We give an example where N = 6.

AP is Upper             AP is Lower

00 01 02 03 04 05       00
11 12 13 14 15       10 11
22 23 24 25       20 21 22
33 34 35       30 31 32 33
44 45       40 41 42 43 44
55       50 51 52 53 54 55

Let TRANSR = 'N'. RFP holds AP as follows:
For UPLO = 'U' the upper trapezoid A(0:5,0:2) consists of the last
three columns of AP upper. The lower triangle A(4:6,0:2) consists of
the transpose of the first three columns of AP upper.
For UPLO = 'L' the lower trapezoid A(1:6,0:2) consists of the first
three columns of AP lower. The upper triangle A(0:2,0:2) consists of
the transpose of the last three columns of AP lower.
This covers the case N even and TRANSR = 'N'.

RFP A                   RFP A

03 04 05                33 43 53
13 14 15                00 44 54
23 24 25                10 11 55
33 34 35                20 21 22
00 44 45                30 31 32
01 11 55                40 41 42
02 12 22                50 51 52

Now let TRANSR = 'T'. RFP A in both UPLO cases is just the
transpose of RFP A above. One therefore gets:

RFP A                   RFP A

03 13 23 33 00 01 02    33 00 10 20 30 40 50
04 14 24 34 44 11 12    43 44 11 21 31 41 51
05 15 25 35 45 55 22    53 54 55 22 32 42 52

We then consider Rectangular Full Packed (RFP) Format when N is
odd. We give an example where N = 5.

AP is Upper                 AP is Lower

00 01 02 03 04              00
11 12 13 14              10 11
22 23 24              20 21 22
33 34              30 31 32 33
44              40 41 42 43 44

Let TRANSR = 'N'. RFP holds AP as follows:
For UPLO = 'U' the upper trapezoid A(0:4,0:2) consists of the last
three columns of AP upper. The lower triangle A(3:4,0:1) consists of
the transpose of the first two columns of AP upper.
For UPLO = 'L' the lower trapezoid A(0:4,0:2) consists of the first
three columns of AP lower. The upper triangle A(0:1,1:2) consists of
the transpose of the last two columns of AP lower.
This covers the case N odd and TRANSR = 'N'.

RFP A                   RFP A

02 03 04                00 33 43
12 13 14                10 11 44
22 23 24                20 21 22
00 33 34                30 31 32
01 11 44                40 41 42

Now let TRANSR = 'T'. RFP A in both UPLO cases is just the
transpose of RFP A above. One therefore gets:

RFP A                   RFP A

02 12 22 00 01             00 10 20 30 40 50
03 13 23 33 11             33 11 21 31 41 51
04 14 24 34 44             43 44 22 32 42 52```
