PDPBTRF - compute a Cholesky factorization of an N-by-N real banded symmetric
positive definite distributed matrix with bandwidth BW

- SUBROUTINE PDPBTRF(
- UPLO, N, BW, A, JA, DESCA, AF, LAF, WORK, LWORK, INFO )

CHARACTER UPLO INTEGER BW, INFO, JA, LAF, LWORK, N INTEGER DESCA( * ) DOUBLE
PRECISION A( * ), AF( * ), WORK( * )

PDPBTRF computes a Cholesky factorization of an N-by-N real banded symmetric
positive definite distributed matrix with bandwidth BW: A(1:N, JA:JA+N-1).
Reordering is used to increase parallelism in the factorization. This
reordering results in factors that are DIFFERENT from those produced by
equivalent sequential codes. These factors cannot be used directly by users;
however, they can be used in

subsequent calls to PDPBTRS to solve linear systems.

The factorization has the form

P A(1:N, JA:JA+N-1) P^T = U' U , if UPLO = 'U', or

P A(1:N, JA:JA+N-1) P^T = L L', if UPLO = 'L'

where U is a banded upper triangular matrix and L is banded lower triangular,
and P is a permutation matrix.
