ZGEQRF computes a QR factorization of a complex M-by-N matrix A:
A = Q * R.


M (input) INTEGER
The number of rows of the matrix A. M >= 0.

N (input) INTEGER
The number of columns of the matrix A. N >= 0.

A (input/output) COMPLEX*16 array, dimension (LDA,N)
On entry, the M-by-N matrix A.
On exit, the elements on and above the diagonal of the array
contain the min(M,N)-by-N upper trapezoidal matrix R (R is
upper triangular if m >= n); the elements below the diagonal,
with the array TAU, represent the unitary matrix Q as a
product of min(m,n) elementary reflectors (see Further

The leading dimension of the array A. LDA >= max(1,M).

TAU (output) COMPLEX*16 array, dimension (min(M,N))
The scalar factors of the elementary reflectors (see Further

WORK (workspace/output) COMPLEX*16 array, dimension (LWORK)
On exit, if INFO = 0, WORK(1) returns the optimal LWORK.

The dimension of the array WORK. LWORK >= max(1,N).
For optimum performance LWORK >= N*NB, where NB is
the optimal blocksize.

If LWORK = -1, then a workspace query is assumed; the routine
only calculates the optimal size of the WORK array, returns
this value as the first entry of the WORK array, and no error
message related to LWORK is issued by XERBLA.

= 0: successful exit
< 0: if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value

Further Details

The matrix Q is represented as a product of elementary reflectors

Q = H(1) H(2) . . . H(k), where k = min(m,n).

Each H(i) has the form

H(i) = I - tau * v * v'

where tau is a complex scalar, and v is a complex vector with
v(1:i-1) = 0 and v(i) = 1; v(i+1:m) is stored on exit in A(i+1:m,i),
and tau in TAU(i).
