N >= 0. .TP 8 KD (input) INTEGER The number of superdiagonals of the matrix A if UPLO = \(aqU\(aq, or the number of subdiagonals if UPLO = \(aqL\(aq. KD >= 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 AB (input) REAL array, dimension (LDAB,N) The upper or lower triangle of the symmetric band matrix A, stored in the first KD+1 rows of the array. The j-th column of A is stored in the j-th column of the array AB as follows: if UPLO = \(aqU\(aq, AB(kd+1+i-j,j) = A(i,j) for max(1,j-kd)<=i<=j; if UPLO = \(aqL\(aq, AB(1+i-j,j) = A(i,j) for j<=i<=min(n,j+kd). .TP 8 LDAB (input) INTEGER The leading dimension of the array AB. LDAB >= KD+1. .TP 8 AFB (input) REAL array, dimension (LDAFB,N) The triangular factor U or L from the Cholesky factorization A = U**T*U or A = L*L**T of the band matrix A as computed by SPBTRF, in the same storage format as A (see AB). .TP 8 LDAFB (input) INTEGER The leading dimension of the array AFB. LDAFB >= KD+1. .TP 8 B (input) REAL 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) REAL array, dimension (LDX,NRHS) On entry, the solution matrix X, as computed by SPBTRS. 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) REAL array, dimension (3*N) .TP 8 IWORK (workspace) INTEGER 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.
