subroutine sppfa(ap,n,info)
integer n,info
real ap(1)
c
c sppfa factors a real symmetric positive definite matrix
c stored in packed form.
c
c sppfa is usually called by sppco, but it can be called
c directly with a saving in time if rcond is not needed.
c (time for sppco) = (1 + 18/n)*(time for sppfa) .
c
c on entry
c
c ap real (n*(n+1)/2)
c the packed form of a symmetric matrix a . the
c columns of the upper triangle are stored sequentially
c in a one-dimensional array of length n*(n+1)/2 .
c see comments below for details.
c
c n integer
c the order of the matrix a .
c
c on return
c
c ap an upper triangular matrix r , stored in packed
c form, so that a = trans(r)*r .
c
c info integer
c = 0 for normal return.
c = k if the leading minor of order k is not
c positive definite.
