There is what you are looking for in it. Also a university in Italy has put online some fortran programs for this problem. But I don't remember which and can't find the web-site. Hope it helps

In a matrix like that, a value exists on the upper-right corner and another value exists on the lower-left corner of the matrix. They come from the periodicity. There is a subroutine described in the fortran version of the Numerical Recipies book which is called "cyclic". It also uses subr. "tridiag". Use both of them together to solve your matrix you can get these two subroutines via search on the net.Also chapter 2 section 7 of the book above gives explanations that you may need. ilyas.
