NAG Toolbox: nag_lapack_zgeqlf (f08cs)


    1  Purpose
    2  Syntax
    7  Accuracy
    9  Example


nag_lapack_zgeqlf (f08cs) computes a QL factorization of a complex m by n matrix A.


[a, tau, info] = f08cs(a, 'm', m, 'n', n)
[a, tau, info] = nag_lapack_zgeqlf(a, 'm', m, 'n', n)


nag_lapack_zgeqlf (f08cs) forms the QL factorization of an arbitrary rectangular complex m by n matrix.
If mn, the factorization is given by:
A = Q 0 L ,  
where L is an n by n lower triangular matrix and Q is an m by m unitary matrix. If m<n the factorization is given by
A = QL ,  
where L is an m by n lower trapezoidal matrix and Q is again an m by m unitary matrix. In the case where m>n the factorization can be expressed as
A = Q1 Q2 0 L = Q2 L ,  
where Q1 consists of the first m-n columns of Q, and Q2 the remaining n columns.
The matrix Q is not formed explicitly but is represented as a product of minm,n elementary reflectors (see Representation of orthogonal or unitary matrices in the F08 Chapter Introduction for details). Functions are provided to work with Q in this representation (see Further Comments).
Note also that for any k<n, the information returned in the last k columns of the array a represents a QL factorization of the last k  columns of the original matrix A.

Compulsory Input Parameters

1:     alda: – complex array
The first dimension of the array a must be at least max1,m.
The second dimension of the array a must be at least max1,n.
The m by n matrix A.

Optional Input Parameters

1:     m int64int32nag_int scalar
Default: the first dimension of the array a.
m, the number of rows of the matrix A.
Constraint: m0.
2:     n int64int32nag_int scalar
Default: the second dimension of the array a.
n, the number of columns of the matrix A.
Constraint: n0.

Output Parameters

1:     alda: – complex array
The first dimension of the array a will be max1,m.
The second dimension of the array a will be max1,n.
If mn, the lower triangle of the subarray am-n+1:m1:n contains the n by n lower triangular matrix L.
If mn, the elements on and below the n-mth superdiagonal contain the m by n lower trapezoidal matrix L. The remaining elements, with the array tau, represent the unitary matrix Q as a product of elementary reflectors (see Representation of orthogonal or unitary matrices in the F08 Chapter Introduction).
2:     tau: – complex array
The dimension of the array tau will be max1,minm,n
The scalar factors of the elementary reflectors (see Further Comments).
3:     info int64int32nag_int scalar
info=0 unless the function detects an error (see Error Indicators and Warnings).

Error Indicators and Warnings

If info=-i, parameter i had an illegal value on entry. The parameters are numbered as follows:
1: m, 2: n, 3: a, 4: lda, 5: tau, 6: work, 7: lwork, 8: info.
It is possible that info refers to a parameter that is omitted from the MATLAB interface. This usually indicates that an error in one of the other input parameters has caused an incorrect value to be inferred.


The computed factorization is the exact factorization of a nearby matrix A+E, where
E2 = Oε A2 ,  
and ε is the machine precision.

Further Comments

The total number of real floating-point operations is approximately 83 n2 3m-n  if mn or 83 m2 3n-m  if m<n.
To form the unitary matrix Q nag_lapack_zgeqlf (f08cs) may be followed by a call to nag_lapack_zungql (f08ct):
[a, info] = f08ct(a, tau);
but note that the second dimension of the array a must be at least m, which may be larger than was required by nag_lapack_zgeqlf (f08cs).
When mn, it is often only the first n columns of Q that are required, and they may be formed by the call:
[a, info] = f08ct(a, tau, 'k', n);
To apply Q to an arbitrary complex rectangular matrix C, nag_lapack_zgeqlf (f08cs) may be followed by a call to nag_lapack_zunmql (f08cu). For example,
[c, info] = f08cu('Left','Conjugate Transpose', a, tau, c);
forms C=QHC, where C is m by p.
The real analogue of this function is nag_lapack_dgeqlf (f08ce).


This example solves the linear least squares problems
minx bj - Axj 2 , ​ j=1,2  
for x1 and x2, where bj is the jth column of the matrix B,
A = 0.96-0.81i -0.03+0.96i -0.91+2.06i -0.05+0.41i -0.98+1.98i -1.20+0.19i -0.66+0.42i -0.81+0.56i 0.62-0.46i 1.01+0.02i 0.63-0.17i -1.11+0.60i -0.37+0.38i 0.19-0.54i -0.98-0.36i 0.22-0.20i 0.83+0.51i 0.20+0.01i -0.17-0.46i 1.47+1.59i 1.08-0.28i 0.20-0.12i -0.07+1.23i 0.26+0.26i  
B = -2.09+1.93i 3.26-2.70i 3.34-3.53i -6.22+1.16i -4.94-2.04i 7.94-3.13i 0.17+4.23i 1.04-4.26i -5.19+3.63i -2.31-2.12i 0.98+2.53i -1.39-4.05i .  
The solution is obtained by first obtaining a QL factorization of the matrix A.
Note that the block size (NB) of 64 assumed in this example is not realistic for such a small problem, but should be suitable for large problems.
