## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine chegst (integer ITYPE, character UPLO, integer N, complex, dimension( lda, * ) A, integer LDA, complex, dimension( ldb, * ) B, integer LDB, integer INFO)

**CHEGST**

**Purpose:**

CHEGST reduces a complex Hermitian-definite generalized eigenproblem to standard form. If ITYPE = 1, the problem is A*x = lambda*B*x, and A is overwritten by inv(U**H)*A*inv(U) or inv(L)*A*inv(L**H) If ITYPE = 2 or 3, the problem is A*B*x = lambda*x or B*A*x = lambda*x, and A is overwritten by U*A*U**H or L**H*A*L. B must have been previously factorized as U**H*U or L*L**H by CPOTRF.

**Parameters:**-
*ITYPE*ITYPE is INTEGER = 1: compute inv(U**H)*A*inv(U) or inv(L)*A*inv(L**H); = 2 or 3: compute U*A*U**H or L**H*A*L.

*UPLO*UPLO is CHARACTER*1 = 'U': Upper triangle of A is stored and B is factored as U**H*U; = 'L': Lower triangle of A is stored and B is factored as L*L**H.

*N*N is INTEGER The order of the matrices A and B. N >= 0.

*A*A is COMPLEX array, dimension (LDA,N) On entry, the Hermitian matrix A. If UPLO = 'U', the leading N-by-N upper triangular part of A contains the upper triangular part of the matrix A, and the strictly lower triangular part of A is not referenced. If UPLO = 'L', the leading N-by-N lower triangular part of A contains the lower triangular part of the matrix A, and the strictly upper triangular part of A is not referenced. On exit, if INFO = 0, the transformed matrix, stored in the same format as A.

*LDA*LDA is INTEGER The leading dimension of the array A. LDA >= max(1,N).

*B*B is COMPLEX array, dimension (LDB,N) The triangular factor from the Cholesky factorization of B, as returned by CPOTRF.

*LDB*LDB is INTEGER The leading dimension of the array B. LDB >= max(1,N).

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