.SH PURPOSE
SPOSV computes the solution to a real system of linear equations
A * X = B,
where A is an N-by-N symmetric positive definite matrix and X and B
are N-by-NRHS matrices.
.br
The Cholesky decomposition is used to factor A as
.br
A = U**T* U, if UPLO = \(aqU\(aq, or
.br
A = L * L**T, if UPLO = \(aqL\(aq,
.br
where U is an upper triangular matrix and L is a lower triangular
matrix. The factored form of A is then used to solve the system of
equations A * X = B.
.br
.SH ARGUMENTS
.TP 8
UPLO (input) CHARACTER*1
= \(aqU\(aq: Upper triangle of A is stored;
.br
= \(aqL\(aq: Lower triangle of A is stored.
.TP 8
N (input) INTEGER
The number of linear equations, i.e., the order of the
matrix A. N >= 0.
.TP 8
NRHS (input) INTEGER
The number of right hand sides, i.e., the number of columns
of the matrix B. NRHS >= 0.
.TP 8
A (input/output) REAL array, dimension (LDA,N)
On entry, the symmetric matrix A. If UPLO = \(aqU\(aq, 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 = \(aqL\(aq, 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.
.TP 8
LDA (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array A. LDA >= max(1,N).
.TP 8
B (input/output) REAL array, dimension (LDB,NRHS)
On entry, the N-by-NRHS right hand side matrix B.
On exit, if INFO = 0, the N-by-NRHS solution matrix X.
.TP 8
LDB (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array B. LDB >= max(1,N).
.TP 8
INFO (output) INTEGER
= 0: successful exit
.br
< 0: if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value
.br
> 0: if INFO = i, the leading minor of order i of A is not
positive definite, so the factorization could not be
completed, and the solution has not been computed.
