N >= 0. .TP 8 NRHS (input) INTEGER The number of right hand sides, i.e., the number of columns of the matrices B and X. NRHS >= 0. .TP 8 AP (input) COMPLEX array, dimension (N*(N+1)/2) The upper or lower triangle of the Hermitian matrix A, packed columnwise in a linear array. The j-th column of A is stored in the array AP as follows: if UPLO = \(aqU\(aq, AP(i + (j-1)*j/2) = A(i,j) for 1<=i<=j; if UPLO = \(aqL\(aq, AP(i + (j-1)*(2*n-j)/2) = A(i,j) for j<=i<=n. .TP 8 AFP (input) COMPLEX array, dimension (N*(N+1)/2) The factored form of the matrix A. AFP contains the block diagonal matrix D and the multipliers used to obtain the factor U or L from the factorization A = U*D*U**H or A = L*D*L**H as computed by CHPTRF, stored as a packed triangular matrix. .TP 8 IPIV (input) INTEGER array, dimension (N) Details of the interchanges and the block structure of D as determined by CHPTRF. .TP 8 B (input) COMPLEX array, dimension (LDB,NRHS) The right hand side matrix B. .TP 8 LDB (input) INTEGER The leading dimension of the array B. LDB >= max(1,N). .TP 8 X (input/output) COMPLEX array, dimension (LDX,NRHS) On entry, the solution matrix X, as computed by CHPTRS. On exit, the improved solution matrix X. .TP 8 LDX (input) INTEGER The leading dimension of the array X. LDX >= max(1,N). .TP 8 FERR (output) REAL array, dimension (NRHS) The estimated forward error bound for each solution vector X(j) (the j-th column of the solution matrix X). If XTRUE is the true solution corresponding to X(j), FERR(j) is an estimated upper bound for the magnitude of the largest element in (X(j) - XTRUE) divided by the magnitude of the largest element in X(j). The estimate is as reliable as the estimate for RCOND, and is almost always a slight overestimate of the true error. .TP 8 BERR (output) REAL array, dimension (NRHS) The componentwise relative backward error of each solution vector X(j) (i.e., the smallest relative change in any element of A or B that makes X(j) an exact solution). .TP 8 WORK (workspace) COMPLEX array, dimension (2*N) .TP 8 RWORK (workspace) REAL array, dimension (N) .TP 8 INFO (output) INTEGER = 0: successful exit .br < 0: if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value .SH PARAMETERS ITMAX is the maximum number of steps of iterative refinement.
