1  Purpose

F07FJF (DPOTRI) computes the inverse of a real symmetric positive definite matrix A, where A has been factorized by F07FDF (DPOTRF).

2  Specification

REAL (KIND=nag_wp)  A(LDA,*)
The routine may be called by its LAPACK name dpotri.

3  Description

F07FJF (DPOTRI) is used to compute the inverse of a real symmetric positive definite matrix A, the routine must be preceded by a call to F07FDF (DPOTRF), which computes the Cholesky factorization of A.
If UPLO='U', A=UTU and A-1 is computed by first inverting U and then forming U-1U-T.
If UPLO='L', A=LLT and A-1 is computed by first inverting L and then forming L-TL-1.

5  Parameters

1:     UPLO – CHARACTER(1)Input
On entry: specifies how A has been factorized.
A=UTU, where U is upper triangular.
A=LLT, where L is lower triangular.
Constraint: UPLO='U' or 'L'.
2:     N – INTEGERInput
On entry: n, the order of the matrix A.
Constraint: N0.
3:     A(LDA,*) – REAL (KIND=nag_wp) arrayInput/Output
Note: the second dimension of the array A must be at least max1,N.
On entry: the upper triangular matrix U if UPLO='U' or the lower triangular matrix L if UPLO='L', as returned by F07FDF (DPOTRF).
On exit: U is overwritten by the upper triangle of A-1 if UPLO='U'; L is overwritten by the lower triangle of A-1 if UPLO='L'.
4:     LDA – INTEGERInput
On entry: the first dimension of the array A as declared in the (sub)program from which F07FJF (DPOTRI) is called.
Constraint: LDAmax1,N.
5:     INFO – INTEGEROutput
On exit: INFO=0 unless the routine detects an error (see Section 6).

6  Error Indicators and Warnings

Errors or warnings detected by the routine:
If INFO=-i, the ith parameter had an illegal value. An explanatory message is output, and execution of the program is terminated.
If INFO=i, the ith diagonal element of the Cholesky factor is zero; the Cholesky factor is singular and the inverse of A cannot be computed.

7  Accuracy

The computed inverse X satisfies
XA-I2cnεκ2A   and   AX-I2cnεκ2A ,
where cn is a modest function of n, ε is the machine precision and κ2A is the condition number of A defined by
κ2A=A2A-12 .

8  Further Comments

The total number of floating point operations is approximately 23n3.
The complex analogue of this routine is F07FWF (ZPOTRI).

9  Example

This example computes the inverse of the matrix A, where
A= 4.16 -3.12 0.56 -0.10 -3.12 5.03 -0.83 1.18 0.56 -0.83 0.76 0.34 -0.10 1.18 0.34 1.18 .
Here A is symmetric positive definite and must first be factorized by F07FDF (DPOTRF).
