LFDCG
Computes the determinant of a complex general matrix given the LU factorization of the matrix.
Required Arguments
FACT — Complex N by N matrix containing the LU factorization of the coefficient matrix A as output from routine LFCCG/DLFCCG or LFTCG/DLFTCG. (Input)
IPVT — Vector of length N containing the pivoting information for the LU factorization of A as output from routine LFCCG/DLFCCG or LFTCG/DLFTCG. (Input)
DET1 — Complex 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 * 10DET.
Optional Arguments
N — Number of equations. (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 LFDCG computes the determinant of a complex general coefficient matrix. To compute the determinant the coefficient matrix must first undergo an LU factorization. This may be done by calling either LFCCG or LFTCG. 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.
LFDCG is based on the LINPACK routine CGEDI; see Dongarra et al. (1979).
Example
The determinant is computed for a complex general 3 × 3 matrix.
