**DLAED8** used by sstedc. Merges eigenvalues and deflates secular equation. Used when the original matrix is dense.

**Purpose:**

DLAED8 merges the two sets of eigenvalues together into a single sorted set. Then it tries to deflate the size of the problem. There are two ways in which deflation can occur: when two or more eigenvalues are close together or if there is a tiny element in the Z vector. For each such occurrence the order of the related secular equation problem is reduced by one.

**Parameters:***ICOMPQ*ICOMPQ is INTEGER = 0: Compute eigenvalues only. = 1: Compute eigenvectors of original dense symmetric matrix also. On entry, Q contains the orthogonal matrix used to reduce the original matrix to tridiagonal form.

*K*K is INTEGER The number of non-deflated eigenvalues, and the order of the related secular equation.

*N*N is INTEGER The dimension of the symmetric tridiagonal matrix. N >= 0.

*QSIZ*QSIZ is INTEGER The dimension of the orthogonal matrix used to reduce the full matrix to tridiagonal form. QSIZ >= N if ICOMPQ = 1.

*D*D is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (N) On entry, the eigenvalues of the two submatrices to be combined. On exit, the trailing (N-K) updated eigenvalues (those which were deflated) sorted into increasing order.

*Q*Q is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (LDQ,N) If ICOMPQ = 0, Q is not referenced. Otherwise, on entry, Q contains the eigenvectors of the partially solved system which has been previously updated in matrix multiplies with other partially solved eigensystems. On exit, Q contains the trailing (N-K) updated eigenvectors (those which were deflated) in its last N-K columns.

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

*INDXQ*INDXQ is INTEGER array, dimension (N) The permutation which separately sorts the two sub-problems in D into ascending order. Note that elements in the second half of this permutation must first have CUTPNT added to their values in order to be accurate.

*RHO*RHO is DOUBLE PRECISION On entry, the off-diagonal element associated with the rank-1 cut which originally split the two submatrices which are now being recombined. On exit, RHO has been modified to the value required by DLAED3.

*CUTPNT*CUTPNT is INTEGER The location of the last eigenvalue in the leading sub-matrix. min(1,N) <= CUTPNT <= N.

*Z*Z is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (N) On entry, Z contains the updating vector (the last row of the first sub-eigenvector matrix and the first row of the second sub-eigenvector matrix). On exit, the contents of Z are destroyed by the updating process.

*DLAMDA*DLAMDA is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (N) A copy of the first K eigenvalues which will be used by DLAED3 to form the secular equation.

*Q2*Q2 is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (LDQ2,N) If ICOMPQ = 0, Q2 is not referenced. Otherwise, a copy of the first K eigenvectors which will be used by DLAED7 in a matrix multiply (DGEMM) to update the new eigenvectors.

*LDQ2*LDQ2 is INTEGER The leading dimension of the array Q2. LDQ2 >= max(1,N).

*W*W is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (N) The first k values of the final deflation-altered z-vector and will be passed to DLAED3.

*PERM*PERM is INTEGER array, dimension (N) The permutations (from deflation and sorting) to be applied to each eigenblock.

*GIVPTR*GIVPTR is INTEGER The number of Givens rotations which took place in this subproblem.

*GIVCOL*GIVCOL is INTEGER array, dimension (2, N) Each pair of numbers indicates a pair of columns to take place in a Givens rotation.

*GIVNUM*GIVNUM is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (2, N) Each number indicates the S value to be used in the corresponding Givens rotation.

*INDXP*INDXP is INTEGER array, dimension (N) The permutation used to place deflated values of D at the end of the array. INDXP(1:K) points to the nondeflated D-values and INDXP(K+1:N) points to the deflated eigenvalues.

*INDX*INDX is INTEGER array, dimension (N) The permutation used to sort the contents of D into ascending order.

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