**SLAED2** used by sstedc. Merges eigenvalues and deflates secular equation. Used when the original matrix is tridiagonal.

**Purpose:**

```
SLAED2 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 entry in the
Z vector. For each such occurrence the order of the related secular
equation problem is reduced by one.
```

**Parameters:**

*K*

```
K is INTEGER
The number of non-deflated eigenvalues, and the order of the
related secular equation. 0 <= K <=N.
```

*N*

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

*N1*

```
N1 is INTEGER
The location of the last eigenvalue in the leading sub-matrix.
min(1,N) <= N1 <= N/2.
```

*D*

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

*Q*

```
Q is REAL array, dimension (LDQ, N)
On entry, Q contains the eigenvectors of two submatrices in
the two square blocks with corners at (1,1), (N1,N1)
and (N1+1, N1+1), (N,N).
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 N1 added to their
values. Destroyed on exit.
```

*RHO*

```
RHO is REAL
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
SLAED3.
```

*Z*

```
Z is REAL 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 have been destroyed by the updating
process.
```

*DLAMDA*

```
DLAMDA is REAL array, dimension (N)
A copy of the first K eigenvalues which will be used by
SLAED3 to form the secular equation.
```

*W*

```
W is REAL array, dimension (N)
The first k values of the final deflation-altered z-vector
which will be passed to SLAED3.
```

*Q2*

```
Q2 is REAL array, dimension (N1**2+(N-N1)**2)
A copy of the first K eigenvectors which will be used by
SLAED3 in a matrix multiply (SGEMM) to solve for the new
eigenvectors.
```

*INDX*

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

*INDXC*

```
INDXC is INTEGER array, dimension (N)
The permutation used to arrange the columns of the deflated
Q matrix into three groups: the first group contains non-zero
elements only at and above N1, the second contains
non-zero elements only below N1, and the third is dense.
```

*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.
```

*COLTYP*

```
COLTYP is INTEGER array, dimension (N)
During execution, a label which will indicate which of the
following types a column in the Q2 matrix is:
1 : non-zero in the upper half only;
2 : dense;
3 : non-zero in the lower half only;
4 : deflated.
On exit, COLTYP(i) is the number of columns of type i,
for i=1 to 4 only.
```

*INFO*

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