### subroutine ssytd2 (character UPLO, integer N, real, dimension( lda, * ) A, integer LDA, real, dimension( * ) D, real, dimension( * ) E, real, dimension( * ) TAU, integer INFO)

SSYTD2 reduces a symmetric matrix to real symmetric tridiagonal form by an orthogonal similarity transformation (unblocked algorithm).

Purpose:

``` SSYTD2 reduces a real symmetric matrix A to symmetric tridiagonal
form T by an orthogonal similarity transformation: Q**T * A * Q = T.```
Parameters:

UPLO

```          UPLO is CHARACTER*1
Specifies whether the upper or lower triangular part of the
symmetric matrix A is stored:
= 'U':  Upper triangular
= 'L':  Lower triangular```

N

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

A

```          A is REAL array, dimension (LDA,N)
On entry, the symmetric matrix A.  If UPLO = 'U', the leading
n-by-n upper triangular part of A contains the upper
triangular part of the matrix A, and the strictly lower
triangular part of A is not referenced.  If UPLO = 'L', the
leading n-by-n lower triangular part of A contains the lower
triangular part of the matrix A, and the strictly upper
triangular part of A is not referenced.
On exit, if UPLO = 'U', the diagonal and first superdiagonal
of A are overwritten by the corresponding elements of the
tridiagonal matrix T, and the elements above the first
superdiagonal, with the array TAU, represent the orthogonal
matrix Q as a product of elementary reflectors; if UPLO
= 'L', the diagonal and first subdiagonal of A are over-
written by the corresponding elements of the tridiagonal
matrix T, and the elements below the first subdiagonal, with
the array TAU, represent the orthogonal matrix Q as a product
of elementary reflectors. See Further Details.```

LDA

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

D

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

E

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

TAU

```          TAU is REAL array, dimension (N-1)
The scalar factors of the elementary reflectors (see Further
Details).```

INFO

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

Further Details:

```  If UPLO = 'U', the matrix Q is represented as a product of elementary
reflectors

Q = H(n-1) . . . H(2) H(1).

Each H(i) has the form

H(i) = I - tau * v * v**T

where tau is a real scalar, and v is a real vector with
v(i+1:n) = 0 and v(i) = 1; v(1:i-1) is stored on exit in
A(1:i-1,i+1), and tau in TAU(i).

If UPLO = 'L', the matrix Q is represented as a product of elementary
reflectors

Q = H(1) H(2) . . . H(n-1).

Each H(i) has the form

H(i) = I - tau * v * v**T

where tau is a real scalar, and v is a real vector with
v(1:i) = 0 and v(i+1) = 1; v(i+2:n) is stored on exit in A(i+2:n,i),
and tau in TAU(i).

The contents of A on exit are illustrated by the following examples
with n = 5:

if UPLO = 'U':                       if UPLO = 'L':

(  d   e   v2  v3  v4 )              (  d                  )
(      d   e   v3  v4 )              (  e   d              )
(          d   e   v4 )              (  v1  e   d          )
(              d   e  )              (  v1  v2  e   d      )
(                  d  )              (  v1  v2  v3  e   d  )

where d and e denote diagonal and off-diagonal elements of T, and vi
denotes an element of the vector defining H(i).```
