getrf

Computes the LU factorization of a general m-by-n matrix. This routine belongs to the
oneapi::mkl::lapack
namespace.

Description

The routine computes the
LU
factorization of a general
m
-by-
n
matrix
A
as
A = P*L*U,
where
P
is a permutation matrix,
L
is lower triangular with unit diagonal elements (lower trapezoidal if
m > n
) and
U
is upper triangular (upper trapezoidal if
m < n
). The routine uses partial pivoting, with row interchanges.

API

Syntax
namespace oneapi::mkl::lapack { void getrf(cl::sycl::queue &queue, std::int64_t m, std::int64_t n, cl::sycl::buffer<T> &a, std::int64_t lda, std::int64_t *ipiv, cl::sycl::buffer<T> &scratchpad, std::int64_t scratchpad_size) }

Input Parameters
queue
Device queue where calculations will be performed.
m
The number of rows in the matrix
A
(
0≤m
).
n
The number of columns in
A
(
0≤n
).
a
Buffer holding array holding input matrix
A
. The second dimension of a must be at least
max(1, n)
.
lda
The leading dimension of a.
scratchpad
Buffer holding scratchpad memory to be used by the routine for storing intermediate results.
scratchpad_size
Size of scratchpad memory as a number of floating point elements of type
T
. Size should not be less than the value returned by the getrf_scratchpad_size function.
Output Parameters
a
Overwritten by
L
and
U
. The unit diagonal elements of
L
are not stored.
ipiv
Array, size at least
max(1,min(m, n))
. Contains the pivot indices; for
1 ≤i≤min(m, n)
,row
i
was interchanged with row
ipiv(i)
.
info
Buffer containing error information. If
info=0
, execution is successful. If
info=-i
, the
i
-th parameter had an illegal value. If
info=i
,
uii
is 0. The factorization has been completed, but
U
is exactly singular. Division by 0 will occur if you use the factor
U
for solving a system of linear equations.
Exceptions
Exception
Description
mkl::lapack::exception
This exception is thrown when problems occur during calculations. You can obtain the info code of the problem using the info() method of the exception object:
If
info = -i
, the
i
-th parameter had an illegal value.
If
info = i
,
uii
is 0. The factorization has been completed, but
U
is exactly singular. Division by 0 will occur if you use the factor
U
for solving a system of linear equations.
If
info
is equal to the value passed as scratchpad size, and detail() returns non zero, then the passed scratchpad has an insufficient size, and the required size should not be less than the value returned by the detail() method of the exception object.
