LFDSF
Computes the determinant of a real symmetric matrix given the U DUT factorization of the matrix.
Required Arguments
FACTN by N matrix containing the factored matrix A as output from subroutine LFTSF/DLFTSF or LFCSF/DLFCSF. (Input)
IPVT — Vector of length N containing the pivoting information for the U DUT factorization as output from routine LFTSF/DLFTSF or LFCSF/DLFCSF. (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 LFDSF computes the determinant of a real symmetric indefinite coefficient matrix. To compute the determinant, the coefficient matrix must first undergo a U DUT factorization. This may be done by calling either LFCSF or LFTSF. Since det U = ±1, the formula det A = det U det D det UT = det D is used to compute the determinant. Next det D is computed as the product of the determinants of its blocks.
LFDSF is based on the LINPACK routine SSIDI; see Dongarra et al. (1979).
Example
The determinant is computed for a real symmetric 3 × 3 matrix.
