**CGEBRD**

**Purpose:**

CGEBRD reduces a general complex M-by-N matrix A to upper or lower bidiagonal form B by a unitary transformation: Q**H * A * P = B. If m >= n, B is upper bidiagonal; if m < n, B is lower bidiagonal.

**Parameters***M*M is INTEGER The number of rows in the matrix A. M >= 0.

*N*N is INTEGER The number of columns in the matrix A. N >= 0.

*A*A is COMPLEX array, dimension (LDA,N) On entry, the M-by-N general matrix to be reduced. On exit, if m >= n, the diagonal and the first superdiagonal are overwritten with the upper bidiagonal matrix B; the elements below the diagonal, with the array TAUQ, represent the unitary matrix Q as a product of elementary reflectors, and the elements above the first superdiagonal, with the array TAUP, represent the unitary matrix P as a product of elementary reflectors; if m < n, the diagonal and the first subdiagonal are overwritten with the lower bidiagonal matrix B; the elements below the first subdiagonal, with the array TAUQ, represent the unitary matrix Q as a product of elementary reflectors, and the elements above the diagonal, with the array TAUP, represent the unitary matrix P as a product of elementary reflectors. See Further Details.

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

*D*D is REAL array, dimension (min(M,N)) The diagonal elements of the bidiagonal matrix B: D(i) = A(i,i).

*E*E is REAL array, dimension (min(M,N)-1) The off-diagonal elements of the bidiagonal matrix B: if m >= n, E(i) = A(i,i+1) for i = 1,2,...,n-1; if m < n, E(i) = A(i+1,i) for i = 1,2,...,m-1.

*TAUQ*TAUQ is COMPLEX array, dimension (min(M,N)) The scalar factors of the elementary reflectors which represent the unitary matrix Q. See Further Details.

*TAUP*TAUP is COMPLEX array, dimension (min(M,N)) The scalar factors of the elementary reflectors which represent the unitary matrix P. See Further Details.

*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. LWORK >= max(1,M,N). For optimum performance LWORK >= (M+N)*NB, where NB is the optimal blocksize. If LWORK = -1, then a workspace query is assumed; the routine only calculates the optimal size of the WORK array, returns this value as the first entry of the WORK array, and no error message related to LWORK is issued by XERBLA.

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