## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine sptsv (integerN, integerNRHS, real, dimension( * )D, real, dimension( * )E, real, dimension( ldb, * )B, integerLDB, integerINFO)

**SPTSV computes the solution to system of linear equations A * X = B for PT matrices**

**Purpose:**

SPTSV computes the solution to a real system of linear equations A*X = B, where A is an N-by-N symmetric positive definite tridiagonal matrix, and X and B are N-by-NRHS matrices. A is factored as A = L*D*L**T, and the factored form of A is then used to solve the system of equations.

**Parameters:**-
*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.

*D*D is REAL array, dimension (N) On entry, the n diagonal elements of the tridiagonal matrix A. On exit, the n diagonal elements of the diagonal matrix D from the factorization A = L*D*L**T.

*E*E is REAL array, dimension (N-1) On entry, the (n-1) subdiagonal elements of the tridiagonal matrix A. On exit, the (n-1) subdiagonal elements of the unit bidiagonal factor L from the L*D*L**T factorization of A. (E can also be regarded as the superdiagonal of the unit bidiagonal factor U from the U**T*D*U factorization of A.)

*B*B is REAL array, dimension (LDB,NRHS) On entry, the N-by-NRHS right hand side matrix B. On exit, if INFO = 0, the N-by-NRHS 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 > 0: if INFO = i, the leading minor of order i is not positive definite, and the solution has not been computed. The factorization has not been completed unless i = N.
