SSPRFS**

**Purpose:**

SSPRFS improves the computed solution to a system of linear

equations when the coefficient matrix is symmetric indefinite

and packed, and provides error bounds and backward error estimates

for the solution.

**Parameters:**

*UPLO*

UPLO is CHARACTER*1

= ’U’: Upper triangle of A is stored;

= ’L’: Lower triangle of A is stored.

*N*

N is INTEGER

The order of the matrix A. N >= 0.

*NRHS*

NRHS is INTEGER

The number of right hand sides, i.e., the number of columns

of the matrices B and X. NRHS >= 0.

*AP*

AP is REAL array, dimension (N*(N+1)/2)

The upper or lower triangle of the symmetric matrix A, packed

columnwise in a linear array. The j-th column of A is stored

in the array AP as follows:

if UPLO = ’U’, AP(i + (j-1)*j/2) = A(i,j) for 1<=i<=j;

if UPLO = ’L’, AP(i + (j-1)*(2*n-j)/2) = A(i,j) for j<=i<=n.

*AFP*

AFP is REAL array, dimension (N*(N+1)/2)

The factored form of the matrix A. AFP contains the block

diagonal matrix D and the multipliers used to obtain the

factor U or L from the factorization A = U*D*U**T or

A = L*D*L**T as computed by SSPTRF, stored as a packed

triangular matrix.

*IPIV*

IPIV is INTEGER array, dimension (N)

Details of the interchanges and the block structure of D

as determined by SSPTRF.

*B*

B is REAL array, dimension (LDB,NRHS)

The right hand side matrix B.

*LDB*

LDB is INTEGER

The leading dimension of the array B. LDB >= max(1,N).

*X*

X is REAL array, dimension (LDX,NRHS)

On entry, the solution matrix X, as computed by SSPTRS.

On exit, the improved solution matrix X.

*LDX*

LDX is INTEGER

The leading dimension of the array X. LDX >= max(1,N).

*FERR*

FERR is REAL array, dimension (NRHS)

The estimated forward error bound for each solution vector

X(j) (the j-th column of the solution matrix X).

If XTRUE is the true solution corresponding to X(j), FERR(j)

is an estimated upper bound for the magnitude of the largest

element in (X(j) - XTRUE) divided by the magnitude of the

largest element in X(j). The estimate is as reliable as

the estimate for RCOND, and is almost always a slight

overestimate of the true error.

*BERR*

BERR is REAL array, dimension (NRHS)

The componentwise relative backward error of each solution

vector X(j) (i.e., the smallest relative change in

any element of A or B that makes X(j) an exact solution).

*WORK*

WORK is REAL array, dimension (3*N)

*IWORK*

IWORK is INTEGER array, dimension (N)

*INFO*

INFO is INTEGER

= 0: successful exit

< 0: if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value

**Internal Parameters:**

ITMAX is the maximum number of steps of iterative refinement.
