**SSBGST**

**Purpose:**

```
SSBGST reduces a real symmetric-definite banded generalized
eigenproblem A*x = lambda*B*x to standard form C*y = lambda*y,
such that C has the same bandwidth as A.
B must have been previously factorized as S**T*S by SPBSTF, using a
split Cholesky factorization. A is overwritten by C = X**T*A*X, where
X = S**(-1)*Q and Q is an orthogonal matrix chosen to preserve the
bandwidth of A.
```

**Parameters:**

*VECT*

```
VECT is CHARACTER*1
= 'N': do not form the transformation matrix X;
= 'V': form X.
```

*UPLO*

```
UPLO is CHARACTER*1
= 'U': Upper triangle of A is stored;
= 'L': Lower triangle of A is 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'. KA >= KB >= 0.
```

*AB*

```
AB is REAL 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 transformed matrix X**T*A*X, stored in the same
format as A.
```

*LDAB*

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

*BB*

```
BB is REAL array, dimension (LDBB,N)
The banded factor S from the split Cholesky factorization of
B, as returned by SPBSTF, stored in the first KB+1 rows of
the array.
```

*LDBB*

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

*X*

```
X is REAL array, dimension (LDX,N)
If VECT = 'V', the n-by-n matrix X.
If VECT = 'N', the array X is not referenced.
```

*LDX*

```
LDX is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array X.
LDX >= max(1,N) if VECT = 'V'; LDX >= 1 otherwise.
```

*WORK*

`WORK is REAL array, dimension (2*N)`

*INFO*

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