The routine computes the inverse inv(A) of a general matrix A. Before calling this routine, call ?getrf to factorize A.

Input Parameters


Specifies whether matrix storage layout is row major (LAPACK_ROW_MAJOR) or column major (LAPACK_COL_MAJOR).


The order of the matrix A; n 0.


Array a(size max(1, lda*n)) contains the factorization of the matrix A, as returned by ?getrf: A = P*L*U. The second dimension of a must be at least max(1,n).


The leading dimension of a; lda max(1, n).


Array, size at least max(1, n).

The ipiv array, as returned by ?getrf.

Output Parameters


Overwritten by the n-by-n matrix inv(A).

Return Values

This function returns a value info.

If info = 0, the execution is successful.

If info = -i, parameter i had an illegal value.

If info = i, the i-th diagonal element of the factor U is zero, U is singular, and the inversion could not be completed.

Application Notes

The computed inverse X satisfies the following error bound:

|XA - I|  c(n)ε|X|P|L||U|,

where c(n) is a modest linear function of n; ε is the machine precision; I denotes the identity matrix; P, L, and U are the factors of the matrix factorization A = P*L*U.

The total number of floating-point operations is approximately (4/3)n3 for real flavors and (16/3)n3 for complex flavors.
