### subroutine zhegst (integer ITYPE, character UPLO, integer N, complex*16, dimension( lda, * ) A, integer LDA, complex*16, dimension( ldb, * ) B, integer LDB, integer INFO)

ZHEGST

Purpose:

``` ZHEGST reduces a complex Hermitian-definite generalized
eigenproblem to standard form.

If ITYPE = 1, the problem is A*x = lambda*B*x,
and A is overwritten by inv(U**H)*A*inv(U) or inv(L)*A*inv(L**H)

If ITYPE = 2 or 3, the problem is A*B*x = lambda*x or
B*A*x = lambda*x, and A is overwritten by U*A*U**H or L**H*A*L.

B must have been previously factorized as U**H*U or L*L**H by ZPOTRF.```
Parameters:

ITYPE

```          ITYPE is INTEGER
= 1: compute inv(U**H)*A*inv(U) or inv(L)*A*inv(L**H);
= 2 or 3: compute U*A*U**H or L**H*A*L.```

UPLO

```          UPLO is CHARACTER*1
= 'U':  Upper triangle of A is stored and B is factored as
U**H*U;
= 'L':  Lower triangle of A is stored and B is factored as
L*L**H.```

N

```          N is INTEGER
The order of the matrices A and B.  N >= 0.```

A

```          A is COMPLEX*16 array, dimension (LDA,N)
On entry, the Hermitian 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 INFO = 0, the transformed matrix, stored in the
same format as A.```

LDA

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

B

```          B is COMPLEX*16 array, dimension (LDB,N)
The triangular factor from the Cholesky factorization of B,
as returned by ZPOTRF.```

LDB

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

INFO

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