.SH ARGUMENTS
.TP 8
N (input) INTEGER
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
D (input) REAL array, dimension (N)
The n diagonal elements of the tridiagonal matrix A.
.TP 8
E (input) REAL array, dimension (N-1)
The (n-1) subdiagonal elements of the tridiagonal matrix A.
.TP 8
DF (input) REAL array, dimension (N)
The n diagonal elements of the diagonal matrix D from the
factorization computed by SPTTRF.
.TP 8
EF (input) REAL array, dimension (N-1)
The (n-1) subdiagonal elements of the unit bidiagonal factor
L from the factorization computed by SPTTRF.
.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 SPTTRS.
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 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).
.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 (2*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.
