**SLAED8** used by sstedc. Merges eigenvalues and deflates secular equation. Used when the original matrix is dense.

**Purpose:**

```
SLAED8 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 element in the
Z vector. For each such occurrence the order of the related secular
equation problem is reduced by one.
```

**Parameters:**

*ICOMPQ*

```
ICOMPQ is INTEGER
= 0: Compute eigenvalues only.
= 1: Compute eigenvectors of original dense symmetric matrix
also. On entry, Q contains the orthogonal matrix used
to reduce the original matrix to tridiagonal form.
```

*K*

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

*N*

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

*QSIZ*

```
QSIZ is INTEGER
The dimension of the orthogonal matrix used to reduce
the full matrix to tridiagonal form. QSIZ >= N if ICOMPQ = 1.
```

*D*

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

*Q*

```
Q is REAL array, dimension (LDQ,N)
If ICOMPQ = 0, Q is not referenced. Otherwise,
on entry, Q contains the eigenvectors of the partially solved
system which has been previously updated in matrix
multiplies with other partially solved eigensystems.
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 CUTPNT added to
their values in order to be accurate.
```

*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.
```

*CUTPNT*

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

*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 are 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.
```

*Q2*

```
Q2 is REAL array, dimension (LDQ2,N)
If ICOMPQ = 0, Q2 is not referenced. Otherwise,
a copy of the first K eigenvectors which will be used by
SLAED7 in a matrix multiply (SGEMM) to update the new
eigenvectors.
```

*LDQ2*

```
LDQ2 is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array Q2. LDQ2 >= max(1,N).
```

*W*

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

*PERM*

```
PERM is INTEGER array, dimension (N)
The permutations (from deflation and sorting) to be applied
to each eigenblock.
```

*GIVPTR*

```
GIVPTR is INTEGER
The number of Givens rotations which took place in this
subproblem.
```

*GIVCOL*

```
GIVCOL is INTEGER array, dimension (2, N)
Each pair of numbers indicates a pair of columns to take place
in a Givens rotation.
```

*GIVNUM*

```
GIVNUM is REAL array, dimension (2, N)
Each number indicates the S value to be used in the
corresponding Givens rotation.
```

*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.
```

*INDX*

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

*INFO*

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