**NAME**

LAPACK-3 - computes the Cholesky factorization of a real symmetric positive definite matrix A

**SYNOPSIS**

SUBROUTINE SPOTF2( UPLO, N, A, LDA, INFO ) CHARACTER UPLO INTEGER INFO, LDA, N REAL A( LDA, * )

**PURPOSE**

SPOTF2 computes the Cholesky factorization of a real symmetric positive definite matrix A. The factorization has the form A = U**T * U , if UPLO = 'U', or A = L * L**T, if UPLO = 'L', where U is an upper triangular matrix and L is lower triangular. This is the unblocked version of the algorithm, calling Level 2 BLAS.

**ARGUMENTS**

UPLO (input) CHARACTER*1 Specifies whether the upper or lower triangular part of the symmetric matrix A is stored. = 'U': Upper triangular = 'L': Lower triangular N (input) INTEGER The order of the matrix A. N >= 0. A (input/output) REAL array, dimension (LDA,N) On entry, the symmetric 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**T *U or A = L*L**T. LDA (input) INTEGER The leading dimension of the array A. LDA >= max(1,N). INFO (output) INTEGER = 0: successful exit < 0: if INFO = -k, the k-th argument had an illegal value > 0: if INFO = k, the leading minor of order k is not positive definite, and the factorization could not be completed.
