**SSBTRD**

**Purpose:**

```
SSBTRD reduces a real symmetric band matrix A to symmetric
tridiagonal form T by an orthogonal similarity transformation:
Q**T * A * Q = T.
```

**Parameters:**

*VECT*

```
VECT is CHARACTER*1
= 'N': do not form Q;
= 'V': form Q;
= 'U': update a matrix X, by forming X*Q.
```

*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 matrix A. N >= 0.
```

*KD*

```
KD is INTEGER
The number of superdiagonals of the matrix A if UPLO = 'U',
or the number of subdiagonals if UPLO = 'L'. KD >= 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 KD+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(kd+1+i-j,j) = A(i,j) for max(1,j-kd)<=i<=j;
if UPLO = 'L', AB(1+i-j,j) = A(i,j) for j<=i<=min(n,j+kd).
On exit, the diagonal elements of AB are overwritten by the
diagonal elements of the tridiagonal matrix T; if KD > 0, the
elements on the first superdiagonal (if UPLO = 'U') or the
first subdiagonal (if UPLO = 'L') are overwritten by the
off-diagonal elements of T; the rest of AB is overwritten by
values generated during the reduction.
```

*LDAB*

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

*D*

```
D is REAL array, dimension (N)
The diagonal elements of the tridiagonal matrix T.
```

*E*

```
E is REAL array, dimension (N-1)
The off-diagonal elements of the tridiagonal matrix T:
E(i) = T(i,i+1) if UPLO = 'U'; E(i) = T(i+1,i) if UPLO = 'L'.
```

*Q*

```
Q is REAL array, dimension (LDQ,N)
On entry, if VECT = 'U', then Q must contain an N-by-N
matrix X; if VECT = 'N' or 'V', then Q need not be set.
On exit:
if VECT = 'V', Q contains the N-by-N orthogonal matrix Q;
if VECT = 'U', Q contains the product X*Q;
if VECT = 'N', the array Q is not referenced.
```

*LDQ*

```
LDQ is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array Q.
LDQ >= 1, and LDQ >= N if VECT = 'V' or 'U'.
```

*WORK*

`WORK is REAL array, dimension (N)`

*INFO*

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