PSPBTRF computes a Cholesky factorization of an NbyN real banded symmetric positive definite distributed matrix with bandwidth BW: A(1:N, JA:JA+N1). 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 PSPBTRS to solve linear systems.The factorization has the form
P A(1:N, JA:JA+N1) P^T = U’ U , if UPLO = ’U’, or
P A(1:N, JA:JA+N1) 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.
