**LA_PPSV** computes the solution to a linear system of equations
, where is
real symmetric or complex Hermitian and, in either case, positive definite,
and where and are rectangular matrices or vectors. is stored in
packed format. The Cholesky decomposition is used to factor as

where is an upper triangular matrix and is a lower triangular matrix (). The factored form of is then used to solve the above system.
