DCHKST

Purpose:

``` DCHKST  checks the symmetric eigenvalue problem routines.

DSYTRD factors A as  U S U' , where ' means transpose,
S is symmetric tridiagonal, and U is orthogonal.
DSYTRD can use either just the lower or just the upper triangle
of A; DCHKST checks both cases.
U is represented as a product of Householder
transformations, whose vectors are stored in the first
n-1 columns of V, and whose scale factors are in TAU.

DSPTRD does the same as DSYTRD, except that A and V are stored
in 'packed' format.

DORGTR constructs the matrix U from the contents of V and TAU.

DOPGTR constructs the matrix U from the contents of VP and TAU.

DSTEQR factors S as  Z D1 Z' , where Z is the orthogonal
matrix of eigenvectors and D1 is a diagonal matrix with
the eigenvalues on the diagonal.  D2 is the matrix of
eigenvalues computed when Z is not computed.

DSTERF computes D3, the matrix of eigenvalues, by the
PWK method, which does not yield eigenvectors.

DPTEQR factors S as  Z4 D4 Z4' , for a
symmetric positive definite tridiagonal matrix.
D5 is the matrix of eigenvalues computed when Z is not
computed.

DSTEBZ computes selected eigenvalues.  WA1, WA2, and
WA3 will denote eigenvalues computed to high
absolute accuracy, with different range options.
WR will denote eigenvalues computed to high relative
accuracy.

DSTEIN computes Y, the eigenvectors of S, given the
eigenvalues.

DSTEDC factors S as Z D1 Z' , where Z is the orthogonal
matrix of eigenvectors and D1 is a diagonal matrix with
the eigenvalues on the diagonal ('I' option). It may also
update an input orthogonal matrix, usually the output
from DSYTRD/DORGTR or DSPTRD/DOPGTR ('V' option). It may
also just compute eigenvalues ('N' option).

DSTEMR factors S as Z D1 Z' , where Z is the orthogonal
matrix of eigenvectors and D1 is a diagonal matrix with
the eigenvalues on the diagonal ('I' option).  DSTEMR
uses the Relatively Robust Representation whenever possible.

When DCHKST is called, a number of matrix 'sizes' ('n's') and a
number of matrix 'types' are specified.  For each size ('n')
and each type of matrix, one matrix will be generated and used
to test the symmetric eigenroutines.  For each matrix, a number
of tests will be performed:

(1)     | A - V S V' | / ( |A| n ulp ) DSYTRD( UPLO='U', ... )

(2)     | I - UV' | / ( n ulp )        DORGTR( UPLO='U', ... )

(3)     | A - V S V' | / ( |A| n ulp ) DSYTRD( UPLO='L', ... )

(4)     | I - UV' | / ( n ulp )        DORGTR( UPLO='L', ... )

(5-8)   Same as 1-4, but for DSPTRD and DOPGTR.

(9)     | S - Z D Z' | / ( |S| n ulp ) DSTEQR('V',...)

(10)    | I - ZZ' | / ( n ulp )        DSTEQR('V',...)

(11)    | D1 - D2 | / ( |D1| ulp )        DSTEQR('N',...)

(12)    | D1 - D3 | / ( |D1| ulp )        DSTERF

(13)    0 if the true eigenvalues (computed by sturm count)
of S are within THRESH of
those in D1.  2*THRESH if they are not.  (Tested using
DSTECH)

For S positive definite,

(14)    | S - Z4 D4 Z4' | / ( |S| n ulp ) DPTEQR('V',...)

(15)    | I - Z4 Z4' | / ( n ulp )        DPTEQR('V',...)

(16)    | D4 - D5 | / ( 100 |D4| ulp )       DPTEQR('N',...)

When S is also diagonally dominant by the factor gamma < 1,

(17)    max | D4(i) - WR(i) | / ( |D4(i)| omega ) ,
i
omega = 2 (2n-1) ULP (1 + 8 gamma**2) / (1 - gamma)**4
DSTEBZ( 'A', 'E', ...)

(18)    | WA1 - D3 | / ( |D3| ulp )          DSTEBZ( 'A', 'E', ...)

(19)    ( max { min | WA2(i)-WA3(j) | } +
i     j
max { min | WA3(i)-WA2(j) | } ) / ( |D3| ulp )
i     j
DSTEBZ( 'I', 'E', ...)

(20)    | S - Y WA1 Y' | / ( |S| n ulp )  DSTEBZ, SSTEIN

(21)    | I - Y Y' | / ( n ulp )          DSTEBZ, SSTEIN

(22)    | S - Z D Z' | / ( |S| n ulp )    DSTEDC('I')

(23)    | I - ZZ' | / ( n ulp )           DSTEDC('I')

(24)    | S - Z D Z' | / ( |S| n ulp )    DSTEDC('V')

(25)    | I - ZZ' | / ( n ulp )           DSTEDC('V')

(26)    | D1 - D2 | / ( |D1| ulp )           DSTEDC('V') and
DSTEDC('N')

Test 27 is disabled at the moment because DSTEMR does not
guarantee high relatvie accuracy.

(27)    max | D6(i) - WR(i) | / ( |D6(i)| omega ) ,
i
omega = 2 (2n-1) ULP (1 + 8 gamma**2) / (1 - gamma)**4
DSTEMR('V', 'A')

(28)    max | D6(i) - WR(i) | / ( |D6(i)| omega ) ,
i
omega = 2 (2n-1) ULP (1 + 8 gamma**2) / (1 - gamma)**4
DSTEMR('V', 'I')

Tests 29 through 34 are disable at present because DSTEMR
does not handle partial spectrum requests.

(29)    | S - Z D Z' | / ( |S| n ulp )    DSTEMR('V', 'I')

(30)    | I - ZZ' | / ( n ulp )           DSTEMR('V', 'I')

(31)    ( max { min | WA2(i)-WA3(j) | } +
i     j
max { min | WA3(i)-WA2(j) | } ) / ( |D3| ulp )
i     j
DSTEMR('N', 'I') vs. SSTEMR('V', 'I')

(32)    | S - Z D Z' | / ( |S| n ulp )    DSTEMR('V', 'V')

(33)    | I - ZZ' | / ( n ulp )           DSTEMR('V', 'V')

(34)    ( max { min | WA2(i)-WA3(j) | } +
i     j
max { min | WA3(i)-WA2(j) | } ) / ( |D3| ulp )
i     j
DSTEMR('N', 'V') vs. SSTEMR('V', 'V')

(35)    | S - Z D Z' | / ( |S| n ulp )    DSTEMR('V', 'A')

(36)    | I - ZZ' | / ( n ulp )           DSTEMR('V', 'A')

(37)    ( max { min | WA2(i)-WA3(j) | } +
i     j
max { min | WA3(i)-WA2(j) | } ) / ( |D3| ulp )
i     j
DSTEMR('N', 'A') vs. SSTEMR('V', 'A')

The 'sizes' are specified by an array NN(1:NSIZES); the value of
each element NN(j) specifies one size.
The 'types' are specified by a logical array DOTYPE( 1:NTYPES );
if DOTYPE(j) is .TRUE., then matrix type 'j' will be generated.
Currently, the list of possible types is:

(7)  Same as (4), but multiplied by SQRT( underflow threshold )

(8)  A matrix of the form  U' D U, where U is orthogonal and
D has evenly spaced entries 1, ..., ULP with random signs
on the diagonal.

Parameters

NSIZES

```          NSIZES is INTEGER
The number of sizes of matrices to use.  If it is zero,
DCHKST does nothing.  It must be at least zero.```

NN

```          NN is INTEGER array, dimension (NSIZES)
An array containing the sizes to be used for the matrices.
Zero values will be skipped.  The values must be at least
zero.```

NTYPES

```          NTYPES is INTEGER
The number of elements in DOTYPE.   If it is zero, DCHKST
does nothing.  It must be at least zero.  If it is MAXTYP+1
and NSIZES is 1, then an additional type, MAXTYP+1 is
defined, which is to use whatever matrix is in A.  This
is only useful if DOTYPE(1:MAXTYP) is .FALSE. and
DOTYPE(MAXTYP+1) is .TRUE. .```

DOTYPE

```          DOTYPE is LOGICAL array, dimension (NTYPES)
If DOTYPE(j) is .TRUE., then for each size in NN a
matrix of that size and of type j will be generated.
If NTYPES is smaller than the maximum number of types
defined (PARAMETER MAXTYP), then types NTYPES+1 through
MAXTYP will not be generated.  If NTYPES is larger
than MAXTYP, DOTYPE(MAXTYP+1) through DOTYPE(NTYPES)
will be ignored.```

ISEED

```          ISEED is INTEGER array, dimension (4)
On entry ISEED specifies the seed of the random number
generator. The array elements should be between 0 and 4095;
if not they will be reduced mod 4096.  Also, ISEED(4) must
be odd.  The random number generator uses a linear
congruential sequence limited to small integers, and so
should produce machine independent random numbers. The
values of ISEED are changed on exit, and can be used in the
next call to DCHKST to continue the same random number
sequence.```

THRESH

```          THRESH is DOUBLE PRECISION
A test will count as 'failed' if the 'error', computed as
described above, exceeds THRESH.  Note that the error
is scaled to be O(1), so THRESH should be a reasonably
small multiple of 1, e.g., 10 or 100.  In particular,
it should not depend on the precision (single vs. double)
or the size of the matrix.  It must be at least zero.```

the matrix in A.```

D1

```          D1 is DOUBLE PRECISION array of
dimension( max(NN) )
The eigenvalues of A, as computed by DSTEQR simultaneously
with Z.  On exit, the eigenvalues in D1 correspond with the
matrix in A.```

D2

```          D2 is DOUBLE PRECISION array of
dimension( max(NN) )
The eigenvalues of A, as computed by DSTEQR if Z is not
computed.  On exit, the eigenvalues in D2 correspond with
the matrix in A.```

are in the lower triangle.  (As described in DSYTRD, the
sub- and superdiagonal are not set to 1, although the
true Householder vector has a 1 in that position.  The
routines that use V, such as DORGTR, set those entries to
