LFDRG
Computes the determinant of a real general matrix given the LU factorization of the matrix.
Required Arguments
FACTN by N matrix containing the LU factorization of the matrix A as output from routine LFTRG/DLFTRG or LFCRG/DLFCRG. (Input)
IPVT — Vector of length N containing the pivoting information for the LU factorization as output from routine LFTRG/DLFTRG or LFCRG/DLFCRG. (Input).
DET1 — Scalar containing the mantissa of the determinant. (Output)
The value DET1 is normalized so that 1.0 |DET1| < 10.0 or DET1 = 0.0.
DET2 — Scalar containing the exponent of the determinant. (Output)
The determinant is returned in the form det(A) = DET1 * 10DET2.
Optional Arguments
N — Order of the matrix. (Input)
Default: N = size (FACT,2).
LDFACT — Leading dimension of FACT exactly as specified in the dimension statement of the calling program. (Input)
Default: LDFACT = size (FACT,1).

Description
Routine LFDRG computes the determinant of a real general coefficient matrix. To compute the determinant, the coefficient matrix must first undergo an LU factorization. This may be done by calling either LFCRG or LFTRG. The formula det A = det L det U is used to compute the determinant. Since the determinant of a triangular matrix is the product of the diagonal elements
(The matrix U is stored in the upper triangle of FACT.) Since L is the product of triangular matrices with unit diagonals and of permutation matrices, det L = (1)k where k is the number of pivoting interchanges.
Routine LFDRG is based on the LINPACK routine SGEDI; see Dongarra et al. (1979)
Example
The determinant is computed for a real general 3 × 3 matrix.
