6 Error Indicators and Warnings
If , argument had an illegal value. An explanatory message is output, and execution of the program is terminated.
The leading minor of order is not positive definite,
and the solution has not been computed.
The factorization has not been completed unless .
The computed solution for a single right-hand side,
, satisfies an equation of the form
is the machine precision
. An approximate error bound for the computed solution is given by

for further details.
is a comprehensive LAPACK driver that returns forward and backward error bounds and an estimate of the condition number. Alternatively, F04BGF
and returns a forward error bound and condition estimate. F04BGF
calls F07JAF (DPTSV) to solve the equations.
8 Parallelism and Performance
F07JAF (DPTSV) makes calls to BLAS and/or LAPACK routines, which may be threaded within the vendor library used by this implementation. Consult the documentation for the vendor library for further information.
Please consult the X06 Chapter Introduction
for information on how to control and interrogate the OpenMP environment used within this routine. Please also consult the Users' Note
for your implementation for any additional implementation-specific information.
The number of floating-point operations required for the factorization of is proportional to , and the number of floating-point operations required for the solution of the equations is proportional to , where is the number of right-hand sides.
The complex analogue of this routine is F07JNF (ZPTSV)
This example solves the equations
is the symmetric positive definite tridiagonal matrix
