**DSBGST**

**Purpose:**

```
DSBGVX computes selected eigenvalues, and optionally, eigenvectors
of a real generalized symmetric-definite banded eigenproblem, of
the form A*x=(lambda)*B*x. Here A and B are assumed to be symmetric
and banded, and B is also positive definite. Eigenvalues and
eigenvectors can be selected by specifying either all eigenvalues,
a range of values or a range of indices for the desired eigenvalues.
```

**Parameters:**

*JOBZ*

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

*RANGE*

```
RANGE is CHARACTER*1
= 'A': all eigenvalues will be found.
= 'V': all eigenvalues in the half-open interval (VL,VU]
will be found.
= 'I': the IL-th through IU-th eigenvalues will be found.
```

*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.
```

*KA*

```
KA is INTEGER
The number of superdiagonals of the matrix A if UPLO = 'U',
or the number of subdiagonals if UPLO = 'L'. KA >= 0.
```

*KB*

```
KB is INTEGER
The number of superdiagonals of the matrix B if UPLO = 'U',
or the number of subdiagonals if UPLO = 'L'. KB >= 0.
```

*AB*

```
AB is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (LDAB, N)
On entry, the upper or lower triangle of the symmetric band
matrix A, stored in the first ka+1 rows of the array. The
j-th column of A is stored in the j-th column of the array AB
as follows:
if UPLO = 'U', AB(ka+1+i-j,j) = A(i,j) for max(1,j-ka)<=i<=j;
if UPLO = 'L', AB(1+i-j,j) = A(i,j) for j<=i<=min(n,j+ka).
On exit, the contents of AB are destroyed.
```

*LDAB*

```
LDAB is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array AB. LDAB >= KA+1.
```

*BB*

```
BB is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (LDBB, N)
On entry, the upper or lower triangle of the symmetric band
matrix B, stored in the first kb+1 rows of the array. The
j-th column of B is stored in the j-th column of the array BB
as follows:
if UPLO = 'U', BB(ka+1+i-j,j) = B(i,j) for max(1,j-kb)<=i<=j;
if UPLO = 'L', BB(1+i-j,j) = B(i,j) for j<=i<=min(n,j+kb).
On exit, the factor S from the split Cholesky factorization
B = S**T*S, as returned by DPBSTF.
```

*LDBB*

```
LDBB is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array BB. LDBB >= KB+1.
```

*Q*

```
Q is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (LDQ, N)
If JOBZ = 'V', the n-by-n matrix used in the reduction of
A*x = (lambda)*B*x to standard form, i.e. C*x = (lambda)*x,
and consequently C to tridiagonal form.
If JOBZ = 'N', the array Q is not referenced.
```

*LDQ*

```
LDQ is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array Q. If JOBZ = 'N',
LDQ >= 1. If JOBZ = 'V', LDQ >= max(1,N).
```

*VL*

`VL is DOUBLE PRECISION`

*VU*

```
VU is DOUBLE PRECISION
If RANGE='V', the lower and upper bounds of the interval to
be searched for eigenvalues. VL < VU.
Not referenced if RANGE = 'A' or 'I'.
```

*IL*

`IL is INTEGER`

*IU*

```
IU is INTEGER
If RANGE='I', the indices (in ascending order) of the
smallest and largest eigenvalues to be returned.
1 <= IL <= IU <= N, if N > 0; IL = 1 and IU = 0 if N = 0.
Not referenced if RANGE = 'A' or 'V'.
```

*ABSTOL*

```
ABSTOL is DOUBLE PRECISION
The absolute error tolerance for the eigenvalues.
An approximate eigenvalue is accepted as converged
when it is determined to lie in an interval [a,b]
of width less than or equal to
ABSTOL + EPS * max( |a|,|b| ) ,
where EPS is the machine precision. If ABSTOL is less than
or equal to zero, then EPS*|T| will be used in its place,
where |T| is the 1-norm of the tridiagonal matrix obtained
by reducing A to tridiagonal form.
Eigenvalues will be computed most accurately when ABSTOL is
set to twice the underflow threshold 2*DLAMCH('S'), not zero.
If this routine returns with INFO>0, indicating that some
eigenvectors did not converge, try setting ABSTOL to
2*DLAMCH('S').
```

*M*

```
M is INTEGER
The total number of eigenvalues found. 0 <= M <= N.
If RANGE = 'A', M = N, and if RANGE = 'I', M = IU-IL+1.
```

*W*

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

*Z*

```
Z is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (LDZ, N)
If JOBZ = 'V', then if INFO = 0, Z contains the matrix Z of
eigenvectors, with the i-th column of Z holding the
eigenvector associated with W(i). The eigenvectors are
normalized so Z**T*B*Z = I.
If JOBZ = 'N', then Z is not referenced.
```

*LDZ*

```
LDZ is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array Z. LDZ >= 1, and if
JOBZ = 'V', LDZ >= max(1,N).
```

*WORK*

`WORK is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (7*N)`

*IWORK*

`IWORK is INTEGER array, dimension (5*N)`

*IFAIL*

```
IFAIL is INTEGER array, dimension (M)
If JOBZ = 'V', then if INFO = 0, the first M elements of
IFAIL are zero. If INFO > 0, then IFAIL contains the
indices of the eigenvalues that failed to converge.
If JOBZ = 'N', then IFAIL is not referenced.
```

*INFO*

```
INFO is INTEGER
= 0 : successful exit
< 0 : if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value
<= N: if INFO = i, then i eigenvectors failed to converge.
Their indices are stored in IFAIL.
> N : DPBSTF returned an error code; i.e.,
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.
