Up: Specifications of Routines
Previous: Specifications of Routines
- The specifications that follow give the calling sequence, purpose,
and descriptions of the arguments of each LAPACK driver and
computational routine (but not of auxiliary routines).
- Specifications of pairs of real and complex routines have been merged
(for example SBDSQR/CBDSQR).
In a few cases, specifications of three routines have been merged, one for
real symmetric, one for complex symmetric, and one for complex Hermitian
matrices (for example SSYTRF/CSYTRF/CHETRF).
A few routines for real matrices have no complex equivalent (for example
- Specifications are given only for single precision routines.
To adapt them for the double precision version of the software, simply
interpret REAL as DOUBLE PRECISION, COMPLEX as COMPLEX*16 (or DOUBLE COMPLEX),
and the initial letters S- and C- of LAPACK routine names as D- and Z-.
- Specifications are arranged in alphabetical order of the real routine
- The text of the specifications has been derived from the leading comments
in the source-text of the routines. It makes only a limited use of
mathematical typesetting facilities. To eliminate redundancy,
has been used throughout the specifications. Thus, the reader should
note that is equivalent to in the real case.
- If there is a discrepancy between the specifications listed in
this section and the actual source code, the source code should be
regarded as the most up-to-date.
