**STBRFS**

**Purpose:**

```
STBRFS provides error bounds and backward error estimates for the
solution to a system of linear equations with a triangular band
coefficient matrix.
The solution matrix X must be computed by STBTRS or some other
means before entering this routine. STBRFS does not do iterative
refinement because doing so cannot improve the backward error.
```

**Parameters:**

*UPLO*

```
UPLO is CHARACTER*1
= 'U': A is upper triangular;
= 'L': A is lower triangular.
```

*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)
```

*DIAG*

```
DIAG is CHARACTER*1
= 'N': A is non-unit triangular;
= 'U': A is unit triangular.
```

*N*

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

*KD*

```
KD is INTEGER
The number of superdiagonals or subdiagonals of the
triangular band matrix A. KD >= 0.
```

*NRHS*

```
NRHS is INTEGER
The number of right hand sides, i.e., the number of columns
of the matrices B and X. NRHS >= 0.
```

*AB*

```
AB is REAL array, dimension (LDAB,N)
The upper or lower triangular band matrix A, stored in the
first kd+1 rows of the array. The j-th column of A is stored
in the j-th column of the array AB as follows:
if UPLO = 'U', AB(kd+1+i-j,j) = A(i,j) for max(1,j-kd)<=i<=j;
if UPLO = 'L', AB(1+i-j,j) = A(i,j) for j<=i<=min(n,j+kd).
If DIAG = 'U', the diagonal elements of A are not referenced
and are assumed to be 1.
```

*LDAB*

```
LDAB is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array AB. LDAB >= KD+1.
```

*B*

```
B is REAL array, dimension (LDB,NRHS)
The right hand side matrix B.
```

*LDB*

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

*X*

```
X is REAL array, dimension (LDX,NRHS)
The solution matrix X.
```

*LDX*

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

*FERR*

```
FERR is REAL 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 REAL 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 REAL 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
