Description
The routine solves for
X
the following systems of linear equations:
A*X
=
B
if
trans
=
'N'
,
A
T
*X
=
B
if
trans
=
'T'
,
A
H
*X
=
B
if
trans
=
'C'
(for complex matrices only).
Before calling this routine, you must call
?getrf
to compute the
LU
factorization of
A
.
Input Parameters
matrix_layout
Specifies whether matrix storage layout is row major (
LAPACK_ROW_MAJOR
) or column major (
LAPACK_COL_MAJOR
).
trans
Must be
'N'
or
'T'
or
'C'
.
Indicates the form of the equations:
If
trans
=
'N'
, then
A*X
=
B
is solved for
X
.
If
trans
=
'T'
, then
A
T
*X
=
B
is solved for
X
.
If
trans
=
'C'
, then
A
H
*X
=
B
is solved for
X
.
n
The order of
A
; the number of rows in
B
(
n
0)
.
nrhs
The number of right-hand sides;
nrhs
0.
a
Array of size max(1,
lda
*
n
).
The array
a
contains
LU
factorization of matrix
A
resulting from the call of
?getrf
.
b
Array of size max(1,
ldb
*
nrhs
) for column major layout, and max(1,
ldb
*
n
) for row major layout.
The array
b
contains the matrix
B
whose columns are the right-hand sides for the systems of equations.
lda
The leading dimension of
a
;
lda
max(1,
n
)
.
ldb
The leading dimension of
b
;
ldb
max(1,
n
) for column major layout and
ldb
nrhs
for row major layout
.
ipiv
Array, size at least
max(1,
n
)
. The
ipiv
array, as returned by
?getrf
.
Output Parameters
b
Overwritten by the solution matrix
X
.
Return Values
This function returns a value
info
.
If
info
= 0
, the execution is successful.
If
info
=
-i
, parameter
i
had an illegal value.
Application Notes
For each right-hand side
b
, the computed solution is the exact solution of a perturbed system of equations
(
A
+
E
)
x
=
b
, where
|E| ≤ c(n)ε P|L||U|
c
(
n
)
is a modest linear function of
n
, and
ε
is the machine precision.
If
x
0
is the true solution, the computed solution
x
satisfies this error bound:
Equation
where
cond(
A
,
x
)= || |
A
-1
||
A
| |
x
| ||
/ ||
x
||
||
A
-1
||
||
A
||
=
κ
(
A
)
.
Note that
cond(
A
,
x
)
can be much smaller than
κ
(
A
)
; the condition number of
A
T
and
A
H
might or might not be equal to
κ
(
A
)
.
The approximate number of floating-point operations for one right-hand side vector
b
is
2
n
2
for real flavors and
8
n
2
for complex flavors.
To estimate the condition number
κ
(
A
)
, call
?gecon
.
To refine the solution and estimate the error, call
?gerfs
.
