LFDHF
Computes the determinant of a complex Hermitian matrix given the U DUH factorization of the matrix.
Required Arguments
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)
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 — 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).

Double: The double precision name is DLFDHF.
Description
Routine LFDHF computes the determinant of a complex Hermitian indefinite coefficient matrix. To compute the determinant, the coefficient matrix must first undergo a U DUH factorization. This may be done by calling either LFCHF or LFTHF since det U = ±1, the formula det A = det U det D det UH = det D is used to compute the determinant. det D is computed as the product of the determinants of its blocks.
LFDHF is based on the LINPACK routine CSIDI; see Dongarra et al. (1979).
Example
The determinant is computed for a complex Hermitian 3 × 3 matrix.
