Calling Sequence




square symmetric positive sparse matrix


list containing the Cholesky factors in coded form


spcho=chfact(A) computes the sparse Cholesky factors of sparse matrix A, assumed symmetric positive definite. This function is based on the Ng-Peyton programs (ORNL). See the Fortran programs for a complete description of the variables in spcho. This function is to be used with chsolve.
