## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine chegst (integerITYPE, characterUPLO, integerN, complex, dimension( lda, * )A, integerLDA, complex, dimension( ldb, * )B, integerLDB, integerINFO)

**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
```
