## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine spptri (characterUPLO, integerN, real, dimension( * )AP, integerINFO)

**SPPTRI**

**Purpose:**

```
SPPTRI computes the inverse of a real symmetric positive definite
matrix A using the Cholesky factorization A = U**T*U or A = L*L**T
computed by SPPTRF.
```

**Parameters:**

*UPLO*

```
UPLO is CHARACTER*1
= 'U': Upper triangular factor is stored in AP;
= 'L': Lower triangular factor is stored in AP.
```

*N*

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

*AP*

```
AP is REAL array, dimension (N*(N+1)/2)
On entry, the triangular factor U or L from the Cholesky
factorization A = U**T*U or A = L*L**T, packed columnwise as
a linear array. The j-th column of U or L is stored in the
array AP as follows:
if UPLO = 'U', AP(i + (j-1)*j/2) = U(i,j) for 1<=i<=j;
if UPLO = 'L', AP(i + (j-1)*(2n-j)/2) = L(i,j) for j<=i<=n.
On exit, the upper or lower triangle of the (symmetric)
inverse of A, overwriting the input factor U or L.
```

*INFO*

```
INFO is INTEGER
= 0: successful exit
< 0: if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value
> 0: if INFO = i, the (i,i) element of the factor U or L is
zero, and the inverse could not be computed.
```
