- Iffact='E', real scaling factorsRandCare computed to equilibrate the system::trans='N'diag(R)*A*diag(C) *diag(C)-1*X= diag(R)*B:trans='T'(diag(R)*A*diag(C))T*diag(R)-1*X= diag(C)*B:trans='C'(diag(R)*A*diag(C))H*diag(R)-1*X= diag(C)*BWhether or not the system will be equilibrated depends on the scaling of the matrixA, but if equilibration is used,Ais overwritten bydiag(andR)*A*diag(C)Bbydiag((ifR)*Bortrans='N')diag((ifc)*Bortrans='T''C').
- Iforfact='N''E', theLUdecomposition is used to factor the matrixA(after equilibration ifasfact='E'), whereA=PLUPis a permutation matrix,Lis a unit lower triangular matrix, andUis upper triangular.
- The factored form ofAis used to estimate the condition number of the matrixA. If the reciprocal of the condition number is less than relative machine precision, steps 4 - 6 are skipped.
- The system of equations is solved forXusing the factored form ofA.
- Iterative refinement is applied to improve the computed solution matrix and calculate error bounds and backward error estimates for it.
- If equilibration was used, the matrixXis premultiplied by diag(C) (ifor diag(trans='N')R) (ifortrans='T''C') so that it solves the original system before equilibration.
