## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine zpftrf (characterTRANSR, characterUPLO, integerN, complex*16, dimension( 0: * )A, integerINFO)

**ZPFTRF**

**Purpose:**

```
ZPFTRF computes the Cholesky factorization of a complex Hermitian
positive definite matrix A.
The factorization has the form
A = U**H * U, if UPLO = 'U', or
A = L * L**H, if UPLO = 'L',
where U is an upper triangular matrix and L is lower triangular.
This is the block version of the algorithm, calling Level 3 BLAS.
```

**Parameters:**

*TRANSR*

```
TRANSR is CHARACTER*1
= 'N': The Normal TRANSR of RFP A is stored;
= 'C': The Conjugate-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.
```

*A*

```
A is COMPLEX array, dimension ( N*(N+1)/2 );
On entry, the Hermitian matrix A in RFP format. RFP format is
described by TRANSR, UPLO, and N as follows: If TRANSR = 'N'
then RFP A is (0:N,0:k-1) when N is even; k=N/2. RFP A is
(0:N-1,0:k) when N is odd; k=N/2. IF TRANSR = 'C' then RFP is
the Conjugate-transpose of RFP A as defined when
TRANSR = 'N'. The contents of RFP A are defined by UPLO as
follows: If UPLO = 'U' the RFP A contains the nt elements of
upper packed A. If UPLO = 'L' the RFP A contains the elements
of lower packed A. The LDA of RFP A is (N+1)/2 when TRANSR =
'C'. When TRANSR is 'N' the LDA is N+1 when N is even and N
is odd. See the Note below for more details.
On exit, if INFO = 0, the factor U or L from the Cholesky
factorization RFP A = U**H*U or RFP A = L*L**H.
```

*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 factorization could not be
completed.
Further Notes on RFP Format:
============================
We first consider Standard Packed 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
conjugate-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
conjugate-transpose of the last three columns of AP lower.
To denote conjugate we place -- above the element. This covers the
case N even and TRANSR = 'N'.

Now let TRANSR = 'C'. RFP A in both UPLO cases is just the conjugate-
transpose of RFP A above. One therefore gets:

We next consider Standard Packed Format when N is odd.
We give an example where N = 5.

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
conjugate-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
conjugate-transpose of the last two columns of AP lower.
To denote conjugate we place -- above the element. This covers the
case N odd and TRANSR = 'N'.

01 11 44 40 41 42
Now let TRANSR = 'C'. RFP A in both UPLO cases is just the conjugate-
transpose of RFP A above. One therefore gets:
