The p?larftfunction forms the triangular factor T of a real/complex block reflector H of order n, which is defined as a product of k elementary reflectors.

If direct = 'F', H = H(1)*H(2)...*H(k), and T is upper triangular;

If direct = 'B', H = H(k)*...*H(2)*H(1), and T is lower triangular.

If storev = 'C', the vector which defines the elementary reflector H(i) is stored in the i-th column of the distributed matrix V, and

H = I-V*T*V'

If storev = 'R', the vector which defines the elementary reflector H(i) is stored in the i-th row of the distributed matrix V, and

H = I-V'*T*V.

Input Parameters



Specifies the order in which the elementary reflectors are multiplied to form the block reflector:

if direct = 'F': H = H(1)*H(2)*...*H(k) (forward)

if direct = 'B': H = H(k)*...*H(2)*H(1) (backward).



Specifies how the vectors that define the elementary reflectors are stored (See Application Notes below):

if storev = 'C': columnwise;

if storev = 'R': rowwise.



The order of the block reflector H. n 0.



The order of the triangular factor T, is equal to the number of elementary reflectors.

1 ≤ kmb_v (= nb_v).


Pointer into the local memory to an array of local size

LOCr(iv+n-1) * LOCc(jv+k-1) if storev = 'C', and

LOCr(iv+k-1) * LOCc(jv+n-1) if storev = 'R'.

The distributed matrix V contains the Householder vectors. (See Application Notes below).

iv, jv


The row and column indices in the global matrix V indicating the first row and the first column of the matrix sub(V), respectively.


(local) array of size dlen_. The array descriptor for the distributed matrix V.



Array of size LOCr(iv+k-1) if incv = m_v, and LOCc(jv+k-1) otherwise. This array contains the Householder scalars related to the Householder vectors.

tau is tied to the distributed matrix V.



Workspace array of size k*(k -1)/2.

Output Parameters



Array of size nb_v * nb_v if storev = 'C', and mb_v * mb_v otherwise. It contains the k-by-k triangular factor of the block reflector associated with v. If direct = 'F', t is upper triangular;

if direct = 'B', t is lower triangular.

Application Notes

The shape of the matrix V and the storage of the vectors that define the H(i) is best illustrated by the following example with n = 5 and k = 3. The elements equal to 1 are not stored; the corresponding array elements are modified but restored on exit. The rest of the array is not used.
