The notion is that the array is dominated by bands near the diagonal. The 6 bands shown
are meant to be just a small part of the total.

 LP

A typical band method for solving the above matrix requires LPxLMxN
operations. The FFT method requires 3Nlog2N operations + 53 operations for taking care
of the corners.

Gauss elimination starts at the upper left and uses W[0] = A0,0 to remove the first term

Code with A and Ap is in for\bgaulimt.zip. The final code is in for\bgauelim.zip.
This code uses a packed matrix where A(I,J)  Ap(I,J-I). It has no pivoting. It was
tested on 4000 x 82 (41+40+1) arrays. For the element next to the diagonal equal to 30%
of the diagonal there was a na&iuml;ve failure rate of 1 inversion out of 10. For larger
diagonals the rate went down.
