f07awf (zgetri)


f07awf (zgetri) computes the inverse of a complex matrix A, where A has been factorized by f07arf (zgetrf).


Fortran Interface
Subroutine f07awf ( n, a, lda, ipiv, work, lwork, info)
Integer, Intent (In):: n, lda, ipiv(*), lwork
Integer, Intent (Out):: info
Complex (Kind=nag_wp), Intent (Inout):: a(lda,*)
Complex (Kind=nag_wp), Intent (Out):: work(max(1,lwork))
C Header Interface
#include <nagmk26.h>
void  f07awf_ (const Integer *n, Complex a[], const Integer *lda, const Integer ipiv[], Complex work[], const Integer *lwork, Integer *info)
The routine may be called by its LAPACK name zgetri.


f07awf (zgetri) is used to compute the inverse of a complex matrix A, the routine must be preceded by a call to f07arf (zgetrf), which computes the LU factorization of A as A=PLU. The inverse of A is computed by forming U-1 and then solving the equation XPL=U-1 for X.

1:     n – IntegerInput
On entry: n, the order of the matrix A.
Constraint: n0.
2:     alda* – Complex (Kind=nag_wp) arrayInput/Output
Note: the second dimension of the array a must be at least max1,n.
On entry: the LU factorization of A, as returned by f07arf (zgetrf).
On exit: the factorization is overwritten by the n by n matrix A-1.
3:     lda – IntegerInput
On entry: the first dimension of the array a as declared in the (sub)program from which f07awf (zgetri) is called.
Constraint: ldamax1,n.
4:     ipiv* – Integer arrayInput
Note: the dimension of the array ipiv must be at least max1,n.
On entry: the pivot indices, as returned by f07arf (zgetrf).
5:     workmax1,lwork – Complex (Kind=nag_wp) arrayWorkspace
On exit: if info=0, work1 contains the minimum value of lwork required for optimum performance.
6:     lwork – IntegerInput
On entry: the dimension of the array work as declared in the (sub)program from which f07awf (zgetri) is called, unless lwork=-1, in which case a workspace query is assumed and the routine only calculates the optimal dimension of work (using the formula given below).
Suggested value: for optimum performance lwork should be at least n×nb, where nb is the block size.
Constraint: lworkmax1,n or lwork=-1.
7:     info – IntegerOutput
On exit: info=0 unless the routine detects an error (see Section 6).

Error Indicators and Warnings

If info=-i, argument i had an illegal value. An explanatory message is output, and execution of the program is terminated.
Element value of the diagonal is zero. U is singular, and the inverse of A cannot be computed.


The computed inverse X satisfies a bound of the form:
XA-IcnεXPLU ,  
where cn is a modest linear function of n, and ε is the machine precision.
Note that a similar bound for AX-I cannot be guaranteed, although it is almost always satisfied. See Du Croz and Higham (1992).

Parallelism and Performance

f07awf (zgetri) 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.

Further Comments

The total number of real floating-point operations is approximately 163n3.
The real analogue of this routine is f07ajf (dgetri).


This example computes the inverse of the matrix A, where
A= -1.34+2.55i 0.28+3.17i -6.39-2.20i 0.72-0.92i -0.17-1.41i 3.31-0.15i -0.15+1.34i 1.29+1.38i -3.29-2.39i -1.91+4.42i -0.14-1.35i 1.72+1.35i 2.41+0.39i -0.56+1.47i -0.83-0.69i -1.96+0.67i .  
Here A is nonsymmetric and must first be factorized by f07arf (zgetrf).
