## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine dlaev2 (double precision A, double precision B, double precision C, double precision RT1, double precision RT2, double precision CS1, double precision SN1)

DLAEV2 computes the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a 2-by-2 symmetric/Hermitian matrix.

Purpose:

``` DLAEV2 computes the eigendecomposition of a 2-by-2 symmetric matrix
[  A   B  ]
[  B   C  ].
On return, RT1 is the eigenvalue of larger absolute value, RT2 is the
eigenvalue of smaller absolute value, and (CS1,SN1) is the unit right
eigenvector for RT1, giving the decomposition

[ CS1  SN1 ] [  A   B  ] [ CS1 -SN1 ]  =  [ RT1  0  ]
[-SN1  CS1 ] [  B   C  ] [ SN1  CS1 ]     [  0  RT2 ].```
Parameters:

A

```          A is DOUBLE PRECISION
The (1,1) element of the 2-by-2 matrix.```

B

```          B is DOUBLE PRECISION
The (1,2) element and the conjugate of the (2,1) element of
the 2-by-2 matrix.```

C

```          C is DOUBLE PRECISION
The (2,2) element of the 2-by-2 matrix.```

RT1

```          RT1 is DOUBLE PRECISION
The eigenvalue of larger absolute value.```

RT2

```          RT2 is DOUBLE PRECISION
The eigenvalue of smaller absolute value.```

CS1

`          CS1 is DOUBLE PRECISION`

SN1

```          SN1 is DOUBLE PRECISION
The vector (CS1, SN1) is a unit right eigenvector for RT1.```

Further Details:

```  RT1 is accurate to a few ulps barring over/underflow.

RT2 may be inaccurate if there is massive cancellation in the
determinant A*C-B*B; higher precision or correctly rounded or
correctly truncated arithmetic would be needed to compute RT2
accurately in all cases.

CS1 and SN1 are accurate to a few ulps barring over/underflow.

Overflow is possible only if RT1 is within a factor of 5 of overflow.
Underflow is harmless if the input data is 0 or exceeds
underflow_threshold / macheps.```
