## SYNOPSIS

- SUBROUTINE PDDBTRF(
- N, BWL, BWU, A, JA, DESCA, AF, LAF, WORK, LWORK, INFO )

- INTEGER BWL, BWU, INFO, JA, LAF, LWORK, N

- INTEGER DESCA( * )

- DOUBLE PRECISION A( * ), AF( * ), WORK( * )

## PURPOSE

PDDBTRF computes a LU factorization of an N-by-N real banded diagonally dominant-like distributed matrix with bandwidth BWL, BWU: 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 insubsequent calls to PDDBTRS to solve linear systems.

The factorization has the form

P A(1:N, JA:JA+N-1) P^T = L U

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