**CHEGST**

**Purpose:**

```
CHEGVD computes all the eigenvalues, and optionally, the eigenvectors
of a complex generalized Hermitian-definite eigenproblem, of the form
A*x=(lambda)*B*x, A*Bx=(lambda)*x, or B*A*x=(lambda)*x. Here A and
B are assumed to be Hermitian and B is also positive definite.
If eigenvectors are desired, it uses a divide and conquer algorithm.
The divide and conquer algorithm makes very mild assumptions about
floating point arithmetic. It will work on machines with a guard
digit in add/subtract, or on those binary machines without guard
digits which subtract like the Cray X-MP, Cray Y-MP, Cray C-90, or
Cray-2. It could conceivably fail on hexadecimal or decimal machines
without guard digits, but we know of none.
```

**Parameters:**

*ITYPE*

```
ITYPE is INTEGER
Specifies the problem type to be solved:
= 1: A*x = (lambda)*B*x
= 2: A*B*x = (lambda)*x
= 3: B*A*x = (lambda)*x
```

*JOBZ*

```
JOBZ is CHARACTER*1
= 'N': Compute eigenvalues only;
= 'V': Compute eigenvalues and eigenvectors.
```

*UPLO*

```
UPLO is CHARACTER*1
= 'U': Upper triangles of A and B are stored;
= 'L': Lower triangles of A and B are stored.
```

*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. If UPLO = 'L',
the leading N-by-N lower triangular part of A contains
the lower triangular part of the matrix A.
On exit, if JOBZ = 'V', then if INFO = 0, A contains the
matrix Z of eigenvectors. The eigenvectors are normalized
as follows:
if ITYPE = 1 or 2, Z**H*B*Z = I;
if ITYPE = 3, Z**H*inv(B)*Z = I.
If JOBZ = 'N', then on exit the upper triangle (if UPLO='U')
or the lower triangle (if UPLO='L') of A, including the
diagonal, is destroyed.
```

*LDA*

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

*B*

```
B is COMPLEX array, dimension (LDB, N)
On entry, the Hermitian matrix B. If UPLO = 'U', the
leading N-by-N upper triangular part of B contains the
upper triangular part of the matrix B. If UPLO = 'L',
the leading N-by-N lower triangular part of B contains
the lower triangular part of the matrix B.
On exit, if INFO <= N, the part of B containing the matrix is
overwritten by the triangular factor U or L from the Cholesky
factorization B = U**H*U or B = L*L**H.
```

*LDB*

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

*W*

```
W is REAL array, dimension (N)
If INFO = 0, the eigenvalues in ascending order.
```

*WORK*

```
WORK is COMPLEX array, dimension (MAX(1,LWORK))
On exit, if INFO = 0, WORK(1) returns the optimal LWORK.
```

*LWORK*

```
LWORK is INTEGER
The length of the array WORK.
If N <= 1, LWORK >= 1.
If JOBZ = 'N' and N > 1, LWORK >= N + 1.
If JOBZ = 'V' and N > 1, LWORK >= 2*N + N**2.
If LWORK = -1, then a workspace query is assumed; the routine
only calculates the optimal sizes of the WORK, RWORK and
IWORK arrays, returns these values as the first entries of
the WORK, RWORK and IWORK arrays, and no error message
related to LWORK or LRWORK or LIWORK is issued by XERBLA.
```

*RWORK*

```
RWORK is REAL array, dimension (MAX(1,LRWORK))
On exit, if INFO = 0, RWORK(1) returns the optimal LRWORK.
```

*LRWORK*

```
LRWORK is INTEGER
The dimension of the array RWORK.
If N <= 1, LRWORK >= 1.
If JOBZ = 'N' and N > 1, LRWORK >= N.
If JOBZ = 'V' and N > 1, LRWORK >= 1 + 5*N + 2*N**2.
If LRWORK = -1, then a workspace query is assumed; the
routine only calculates the optimal sizes of the WORK, RWORK
and IWORK arrays, returns these values as the first entries
of the WORK, RWORK and IWORK arrays, and no error message
related to LWORK or LRWORK or LIWORK is issued by XERBLA.
```

*IWORK*

```
IWORK is INTEGER array, dimension (MAX(1,LIWORK))
On exit, if INFO = 0, IWORK(1) returns the optimal LIWORK.
```

*LIWORK*

```
LIWORK is INTEGER
The dimension of the array IWORK.
If N <= 1, LIWORK >= 1.
If JOBZ = 'N' and N > 1, LIWORK >= 1.
If JOBZ = 'V' and N > 1, LIWORK >= 3 + 5*N.
If LIWORK = -1, then a workspace query is assumed; the
routine only calculates the optimal sizes of the WORK, RWORK
and IWORK arrays, returns these values as the first entries
of the WORK, RWORK and IWORK arrays, and no error message
related to LWORK or LRWORK or LIWORK is issued by XERBLA.
```

*INFO*

```
INFO is INTEGER
= 0: successful exit
< 0: if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value
> 0: CPOTRF or CHEEVD returned an error code:
<= N: if INFO = i and JOBZ = 'N', then the algorithm
failed to converge; i off-diagonal elements of an
intermediate tridiagonal form did not converge to
zero;
if INFO = i and JOBZ = 'V', then the algorithm
failed to compute an eigenvalue while working on
the submatrix lying in rows and columns INFO/(N+1)
through mod(INFO,N+1);
> N: if INFO = N + i, for 1 <= i <= N, then the leading
minor of order i of B is not positive definite.
The factorization of B could not be completed and
no eigenvalues or eigenvectors were computed.

**Further Details:**

```
Modified so that no backsubstitution is performed if CHEEVD fails to
converge (NEIG in old code could be greater than N causing out of
bounds reference to A - reported by Ralf Meyer). Also corrected the
description of INFO and the test on ITYPE. Sven, 16 Feb 05.
