IMSL, Fortran - Rank of matrix function, rank(A), gives wrong results when used in Genetic Algorithm

Dear friends,

I have got the problem with function of 'rank' when using it as a function calculating rank of a matrix in subroutine which has been called by Genetic Algorithm (GA) in Fortran code.

I have run two separate projects which used rank(A) as a function to calculate rank of matrix A which is built after a long procedure:

1. The first project, WITHOUT using GA, rank(A) is called just one time. Then, it gives a correct result of rank of matrix A which I have checked with Matlab

Here is the code and output file for the first project

2. The second project, using GA, rank(A) is called THOUSANDS OF time due to searching algorithm of GA, it is needed to calculate rank of matrix for each candidate selected by GA. Then, it gives a WRONG result of rank of matrix A even for the candidate which gives identical A matrix in problem of first project

Have you ever met this kind of phenomena?

Is there any problem with my code or imsl library?
