LFIHF
Uses iterative refinement to improve the solution of a complex Hermitian system of linear equations.
Required Arguments
A — Complex N by N matrix containing the coefficient matrix of the Hermitian linear system. (Input)
Only the upper triangle of A is referenced.
FACT — Complex N by N matrix containing the factorization of the coefficient matrix A as output from routine LFCHF/DLFCHF or LFTHF/DLFTHF. (Input)
Only the upper triangle of FACT is used.
IPVT — Vector of length N containing the pivoting information for the factorization of A as output from routine LFCHF/DLFCHF or LFTHF/DLFTHF. (Input)
B — Complex vector of length N containing the right-hand side of the linear system. (Input)
X — Complex vector of length N containing the solution. (Output)
RES — Complex vector of length N containing the residual vector at the improved solution. (Output)
Optional Arguments
N — Number of equations. (Input)
Default: N = size (A,2).
LDA — Leading dimension of A exactly as specified in the dimension statement of the calling program. (Input)
Default: LDA = size (A,1).
LDFACT — Leading dimension of FACT exactly as specified in the dimension statement of the calling program. (Input)
Default: LDFACT = size (FACT,1).

Description
Routine LFIHF computes the solution of a system of linear algebraic equations having a complex Hermitian indefinite coefficient matrix.
Iterative refinement is performed on the solution vector to improve the accuracy. Usually almost all of the digits in the solution are accurate, even if the matrix is somewhat ill-conditioned.
To compute the solution, the coefficient matrix must first undergo a U DUH factorization. This may be done by calling either LFCHF or LFTHF.
Iterative refinement fails only if the matrix is very ill-conditioned.
LFIHF and LFSHF both solve a linear system given its U DUH factorization. LFIHF generally takes more time and produces a more accurate answer than LFSHF. Each iteration of the iterative refinement algorithm used by LFIHF calls LFSHF.

The input matrix is too ill-conditioned for iterative refinement to be effective.
Example
A set of linear systems is solved successively. The right-hand-side vector is perturbed after solving the system each of the first two times by adding 0.2 + 0.2i to the second element.
