## subroutine cpotrf (character UPLO, integer N, complex, dimension( lda, * ) A, integer LDA, integer INFO)¶

**CPOTRF**VARIANT: right looking block version of the algorithm, calling Level 3 BLAS.

**CPOTRF**VARIANT: top-looking block version of the algorithm, calling Level 3 BLAS.

**Purpose:**

CPOTRF computes the Cholesky factorization of a real Hermitian positive definite matrix A. The factorization has the form A = U**H * U, if UPLO = 'U', or A = L * L**H, if UPLO = 'L', where U is an upper triangular matrix and L is lower triangular. This is the right looking block version of the algorithm, calling Level 3 BLAS.

**Parameters:**

*UPLO*

UPLO is CHARACTER*1 = 'U': Upper triangle of A is stored; = 'L': Lower triangle of A is stored.

*N*

N is INTEGER The order of the matrix A. N >= 0.

*A*

A is COMPLEX array, dimension (LDA,N) On entry, the Hermitian matrix A. If UPLO = 'U', the leading N-by-N upper triangular part of A contains the upper triangular part of the matrix A, and the strictly lower triangular part of A is not referenced. If UPLO = 'L', the leading N-by-N lower triangular part of A contains the lower triangular part of the matrix A, and the strictly upper triangular part of A is not referenced.

On exit, if INFO = 0, the factor U or L from the Cholesky factorization A = U**H*U or A = L*L**H.

*LDA*

LDA is INTEGER The leading dimension of the array A. LDA >= max(1,N).

*INFO*

INFO is INTEGER = 0: successful exit < 0: if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value > 0: if INFO = i, the leading minor of order i is not positive definite, and the factorization could not be completed.

**Purpose:**

CPOTRF computes the Cholesky factorization of a real symmetric positive definite matrix A. The factorization has the form A = U**H * U, if UPLO = 'U', or A = L * L**H, if UPLO = 'L', where U is an upper triangular matrix and L is lower triangular. This is the top-looking block version of the algorithm, calling Level 3 BLAS.

If UPLO = 'L', the leading N-by-N lower triangular part of A contains the lower triangular part of the matrix A, and the strictly upper triangular part of A is not referenced.

On exit, if INFO = 0, the factor U or L from the Cholesky factorization A = U**H*U or A = L*L**H.
