### subroutine sstevx (character jobz, character range, integer n, real, dimension( * ) d, real, dimension( * ) e, real vl, real vu, integer il, integer iu, real abstol, integer m, real, dimension( * ) w, real, dimension( ldz, * ) z, integer ldz, real, dimension( * ) work, integer, dimension( * ) iwork, integer, dimension( * ) ifail, integer info)

**SSTEVX computes the eigenvalues and, optionally, the left and/or right eigenvectors for OTHER matrices**

**Purpose:**

SSTEVX computes selected eigenvalues and, optionally, eigenvectors of a real symmetric tridiagonal matrix A. Eigenvalues and eigenvectors can be selected by specifying either a range of values or a range of indices for the desired eigenvalues.

**Parameters***JOBZ*JOBZ is CHARACTER*1 = 'N': Compute eigenvalues only; = 'V': Compute eigenvalues and eigenvectors.

*RANGE*RANGE is CHARACTER*1 = 'A': all eigenvalues will be found. = 'V': all eigenvalues in the half-open interval (VL,VU] will be found. = 'I': the IL-th through IU-th eigenvalues will be found.

*N*N is INTEGER The order of the matrix. N >= 0.

*D*D is REAL array, dimension (N) On entry, the n diagonal elements of the tridiagonal matrix A. On exit, D may be multiplied by a constant factor chosen to avoid over/underflow in computing the eigenvalues.

*E*E is REAL array, dimension (max(1,N-1)) On entry, the (n-1) subdiagonal elements of the tridiagonal matrix A in elements 1 to N-1 of E. On exit, E may be multiplied by a constant factor chosen to avoid over/underflow in computing the eigenvalues.

*VL*VL is REAL If RANGE='V', the lower bound of the interval to be searched for eigenvalues. VL < VU. Not referenced if RANGE = 'A' or 'I'.

*VU*VU is REAL If RANGE='V', the upper bound of the interval to be searched for eigenvalues. VL < VU. Not referenced if RANGE = 'A' or 'I'.

*IL*IL is INTEGER If RANGE='I', the index of the smallest eigenvalue to be returned. 1 <= IL <= IU <= N, if N > 0; IL = 1 and IU = 0 if N = 0. Not referenced if RANGE = 'A' or 'V'.

*IU*IU is INTEGER If RANGE='I', the index of the largest eigenvalue to be returned. 1 <= IL <= IU <= N, if N > 0; IL = 1 and IU = 0 if N = 0. Not referenced if RANGE = 'A' or 'V'.

*ABSTOL*ABSTOL is REAL The absolute error tolerance for the eigenvalues. An approximate eigenvalue is accepted as converged when it is determined to lie in an interval [a,b] of width less than or equal to ABSTOL + EPS * max( |a|,|b| ) , where EPS is the machine precision. If ABSTOL is less than or equal to zero, then EPS*|T| will be used in its place, where |T| is the 1-norm of the tridiagonal matrix. Eigenvalues will be computed most accurately when ABSTOL is set to twice the underflow threshold 2*SLAMCH('S'), not zero. If this routine returns with INFO>0, indicating that some eigenvectors did not converge, try setting ABSTOL to 2*SLAMCH('S'). See 'Computing Small Singular Values of Bidiagonal Matrices with Guaranteed High Relative Accuracy,' by Demmel and Kahan, LAPACK Working Note #3.

*M*M is INTEGER The total number of eigenvalues found. 0 <= M <= N. If RANGE = 'A', M = N, and if RANGE = 'I', M = IU-IL+1.

*W*W is REAL array, dimension (N) The first M elements contain the selected eigenvalues in ascending order.

*Z*Z is REAL array, dimension (LDZ, max(1,M) ) If JOBZ = 'V', then if INFO = 0, the first M columns of Z contain the orthonormal eigenvectors of the matrix A corresponding to the selected eigenvalues, with the i-th column of Z holding the eigenvector associated with W(i). If an eigenvector fails to converge (INFO > 0), then that column of Z contains the latest approximation to the eigenvector, and the index of the eigenvector is returned in IFAIL. If JOBZ = 'N', then Z is not referenced. Note: the user must ensure that at least max(1,M) columns are supplied in the array Z; if RANGE = 'V', the exact value of M is not known in advance and an upper bound must be used.

*LDZ*LDZ is INTEGER The leading dimension of the array Z. LDZ >= 1, and if JOBZ = 'V', LDZ >= max(1,N).

*WORK*WORK is REAL array, dimension (5*N)

*IWORK*IWORK is INTEGER array, dimension (5*N)

*IFAIL*IFAIL is INTEGER array, dimension (N) If JOBZ = 'V', then if INFO = 0, the first M elements of IFAIL are zero. If INFO > 0, then IFAIL contains the indices of the eigenvectors that failed to converge. If JOBZ = 'N', then IFAIL is not referenced.

*INFO*INFO is INTEGER = 0: successful exit < 0: if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value > 0: if INFO = i, then i eigenvectors failed to converge. Their indices are stored in array IFAIL.
