SLAE2 computes the eigenvalues of a 2-by-2 symmetric matrix.

Function/Subroutine Documentation

subroutine slae2 (real A, real B, real C, real RT1, real RT2)

SLAE2 computes the eigenvalues of a 2-by-2 symmetric matrix.  

Purpose:

 SLAE2  computes the eigenvalues of a 2-by-2 symmetric matrix
    [  A   B  ]
    [  B   C  ].
 On return, RT1 is the eigenvalue of larger absolute value, and RT2
 is the eigenvalue of smaller absolute value.
Parameters:

A

          A is REAL
          The (1,1) element of the 2-by-2 matrix.

B

          B is REAL
          The (1,2) and (2,1) elements of the 2-by-2 matrix.

C

          C is REAL
          The (2,2) element of the 2-by-2 matrix.

RT1

          RT1 is REAL
          The eigenvalue of larger absolute value.

RT2

          RT2 is REAL
          The eigenvalue of smaller absolute value.

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.

  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.
