Input Parameters
n
(global) The order of matrix
A
(
n
0)
.
nrhs
(global) The number of right-hand sides; the number of columns of the distributed submatrix
B
(
nrhs
0)
.
d
(local)
Pointer to local part of global vector storing the main diagonal of the matrix.
e
(local)
Pointer to local part of global vector storing the upper diagonal of the matrix. Globally,
du
(n)
is not referenced, and
du
must be aligned with
d
.
ja
(global) The index in the global matrix
A
indicating the start of the matrix to be operated on (which may be either all of
A
or a submatrix of
A
).
desca
(global and local) array of size
dlen
.
If
1
d

dtype_a
=501 or 502)
,
dlen
≥ 7
;
If
2
d
type (
dtype_a
=1)
,
dlen
≥ 9
.
The array descriptor for the distributed matrix
A
.
Contains information of mapping of
A
to memory.
b
(local)
Pointer into the local memory to an array of local lead size
lld_b
nb
.
On entry, this array contains the local pieces of the right hand sides
B
(
ib
:
ib
+
n
-1, 1:
nrhs
)
.
ib
(global) The row index in the global matrix
B
indicating the first row of the matrix to be operated on (which may be either all of
b
or a submatrix of
B
).
descb
(global and local) array of size
dlen
.
If
1
d
type (
dtype_b
= 502)
,
dlen
≥ 7
;
If
2
d
type (
dtype_b
= 1)
,
dlen
≥ 9
.
The array descriptor for the distributed matrix
B
.
Contains information of mapping of
B
to memory.
work
(local).
Temporary workspace. This space may be overwritten in between calls to
functions
.
work
must be the size given in
lwork
.
lwork
(local or global) Size of user-input workspace
work
. If
lwork
is too small, the minimal acceptable size will be returned in
work

and an error code is returned.

.
b
On exit, this contains the local piece of the solutions distributed matrix
X
.
work
On exit,
work

contains the minimal
lwork
.
info
