.SH PURPOSE
STBSV solves one of the systems of equations
where b and x are n element vectors and A is an n by n unit, or
non-unit, upper or lower triangular band matrix, with ( k + 1 )
diagonals.
.br
No test for singularity or near-singularity is included in this
routine. Such tests must be performed before calling this routine.
.SH ARGUMENTS
.TP 7
UPLO - CHARACTER*1.
On entry, UPLO specifies whether the matrix is an upper or
lower triangular matrix as follows:
UPLO = \(aqU\(aq or \(aqu\(aq A is an upper triangular matrix.
UPLO = \(aqL\(aq or \(aql\(aq A is a lower triangular matrix.
Unchanged on exit.
.TP 7
TRANS - CHARACTER*1.
On entry, TRANS specifies the equations to be solved as
follows:
TRANS = \(aqN\(aq or \(aqn\(aq A*x = b.
TRANS = \(aqT\(aq or \(aqt\(aq A\(aq*x = b.
TRANS = \(aqC\(aq or \(aqc\(aq A\(aq*x = b.
Unchanged on exit.
.TP 7
DIAG - CHARACTER*1.
On entry, DIAG specifies whether or not A is unit
triangular as follows:
DIAG = \(aqU\(aq or \(aqu\(aq A is assumed to be unit triangular.
DIAG = \(aqN\(aq or \(aqn\(aq A is not assumed to be unit
triangular.
Unchanged on exit.
.TP 7
N - INTEGER.
On entry, N specifies the order of the matrix A.
N must be at least zero.
Unchanged on exit.
.TP 7
K - INTEGER.
On entry with UPLO = \(aqU\(aq or \(aqu\(aq, K specifies the number of
super-diagonals of the matrix A.
On entry with UPLO = \(aqL\(aq or \(aql\(aq, K specifies the number of
sub-diagonals of the matrix A.
K must satisfy 0 .le. K.
Unchanged on exit.
.TP 7
A - REAL array of DIMENSION ( LDA, n ).
Before entry with UPLO = \(aqU\(aq or \(aqu\(aq, the leading ( k + 1 )
by n part of the array A must contain the upper triangular
band part of the matrix of coefficients, supplied column by
column, with the leading diagonal of the matrix in row
( k + 1 ) of the array, the first super-diagonal starting at
position 2 in row k, and so on. The top left k by k triangle
of the array A is not referenced.
The following program segment will transfer an upper
triangular band matrix from conventional full matrix storage
to band storage:
DO 20, J = 1, N
M = K + 1 - J
DO 10, I = MAX( 1, J - K ), J
A( M + I, J ) = matrix( I, J )
10 CONTINUE
20 CONTINUE
Before entry with UPLO = \(aqL\(aq or \(aql\(aq, the leading ( k + 1 )
by n part of the array A must contain the lower triangular
band part of the matrix of coefficients, supplied column by
column, with the leading diagonal of the matrix in row 1 of
the array, the first sub-diagonal starting at position 1 in
row 2, and so on. The bottom right k by k triangle of the
array A is not referenced.
The following program segment will transfer a lower
triangular band matrix from conventional full matrix storage
to band storage:
DO 20, J = 1, N
M = 1 - J
DO 10, I = J, MIN( N, J + K )
A( M + I, J ) = matrix( I, J )
10 CONTINUE
20 CONTINUE
Note that when DIAG = \(aqU\(aq or \(aqu\(aq the elements of the array A
corresponding to the diagonal elements of the matrix are not
referenced, but are assumed to be unity.
Unchanged on exit.
.TP 7
LDA - INTEGER.
On entry, LDA specifies the first dimension of A as declared
in the calling (sub) program. LDA must be at least
( k + 1 ).
Unchanged on exit.
.TP 7
X - REAL array of dimension at least
( 1 + ( n - 1 )*abs( INCX ) ).
Before entry, the incremented array X must contain the n
element right-hand side vector b. On exit, X is overwritten
with the solution vector x.
.TP 7
INCX - INTEGER.
On entry, INCX specifies the increment for the elements of
X. INCX must not be zero.
Unchanged on exit.
