### NAME[Toc][Back]

```     SPORFS - improve the computed solution to a system	of linear equations
when the coefficient matrix is symmetric positive definite,
```

### SYNOPSIS[Toc][Back]

```     SUBROUTINE	SPORFS(	UPLO, N, NRHS, A, LDA, AF, LDAF, B, LDB, X, LDX, FERR,
BERR, WORK, IWORK, INFO	)

CHARACTER	UPLO

INTEGER	INFO, LDA, LDAF, LDB, LDX, N, NRHS

INTEGER	IWORK( * )

REAL		A( LDA,	* ), AF( LDAF, * ), B( LDB, * ), BERR( * ),
FERR( *	), WORK( * ), X( LDX, *	)
```

### PURPOSE[Toc][Back]

```     SPORFS improves the computed solution to a	system of linear equations
when the coefficient matrix is symmetric positive definite, and provides
error bounds and backward error estimates for the solution.

```

### ARGUMENTS[Toc][Back]

```     UPLO    (input) CHARACTER*1
= 'U':  Upper triangle of A is stored;
= 'L':  Lower triangle of A is stored.

N	     (input) INTEGER
The order of the matrix A.	 N >= 0.

NRHS    (input) INTEGER
The number	of right hand sides, i.e., the number of columns of
the matrices B and	X.  NRHS >= 0.

A	     (input) REAL array, dimension (LDA,N)
The symmetric matrix A.  If UPLO =	'U', the leading N-by-N	upper
triangular	part of	A contains the upper triangular	part of	the
matrix A, and the strictly	lower triangular part of A is not
referenced.  If UPLO = 'L', the leading N-by-N lower triangular
part of A contains	the lower triangular part of the matrix	A, and
the strictly upper	triangular part	of A is	not referenced.

LDA     (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array	A.  LDA	>= max(1,N).

AF	     (input) REAL array, dimension (LDAF,N)
The triangular factor U or	L from the Cholesky factorization A =
U**T*U or A = L*L**T, as computed by SPOTRF.

LDAF    (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array	AF.  LDAF >= max(1,N).

B	     (input) REAL array, dimension (LDB,NRHS)
The right hand side matrix	B.

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

X	     (input/output) REAL array,	dimension (LDX,NRHS)
On	entry, the solution matrix X, as computed by SPOTRS.  On exit,
the improved solution matrix X.

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

FERR    (output) 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    (output) 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    (workspace) REAL array, dimension (3*N)

IWORK   (workspace) INTEGER array,	dimension (N)

INFO    (output) INTEGER
= 0:  successful exit
< 0:  if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value
```

### PARAMETERS[Toc][Back]
