**ZSTEDC**

**Purpose:**

```
ZSTEDC computes all eigenvalues and, optionally, eigenvectors of a
symmetric tridiagonal matrix using the divide and conquer method.
The eigenvectors of a full or band complex Hermitian matrix can also
be found if ZHETRD or ZHPTRD or ZHBTRD has been used to reduce this
matrix to tridiagonal form.
This code makes very mild assumptions about floating point
arithmetic. It will work on machines with a guard digit in
add/subtract, or on those binary machines without guard digits
which subtract like the Cray X-MP, Cray Y-MP, Cray C-90, or Cray-2.
It could conceivably fail on hexadecimal or decimal machines
without guard digits, but we know of none. See DLAED3 for details.
```

**Parameters:**

*COMPZ*

```
COMPZ is CHARACTER*1
= 'N': Compute eigenvalues only.
= 'I': Compute eigenvectors of tridiagonal matrix also.
= 'V': Compute eigenvectors of original Hermitian matrix
also. On entry, Z contains the unitary matrix used
to reduce the original matrix to tridiagonal form.
```

*N*

```
N is INTEGER
The dimension of the symmetric tridiagonal matrix. N >= 0.
```

*D*

```
D is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (N)
On entry, the diagonal elements of the tridiagonal matrix.
On exit, if INFO = 0, the eigenvalues in ascending order.
```

*E*

```
E is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (N-1)
On entry, the subdiagonal elements of the tridiagonal matrix.
On exit, E has been destroyed.
```

*Z*

```
Z is COMPLEX*16 array, dimension (LDZ,N)
On entry, if COMPZ = 'V', then Z contains the unitary
matrix used in the reduction to tridiagonal form.
On exit, if INFO = 0, then if COMPZ = 'V', Z contains the
orthonormal eigenvectors of the original Hermitian matrix,
and if COMPZ = 'I', Z contains the orthonormal eigenvectors
of the symmetric tridiagonal matrix.
If COMPZ = 'N', then Z is not referenced.
```

*LDZ*

```
LDZ is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array Z. LDZ >= 1.
If eigenvectors are desired, then LDZ >= max(1,N).
```

*WORK*

```
WORK is COMPLEX*16 array, dimension (MAX(1,LWORK))
On exit, if INFO = 0, WORK(1) returns the optimal LWORK.
```

*LWORK*

```
LWORK is INTEGER
The dimension of the array WORK.
If COMPZ = 'N' or 'I', or N <= 1, LWORK must be at least 1.
If COMPZ = 'V' and N > 1, LWORK must be at least N*N.
Note that for COMPZ = 'V', then if N is less than or
equal to the minimum divide size, usually 25, then LWORK need
only be 1.
If LWORK = -1, then a workspace query is assumed; the routine
only calculates the optimal sizes of the WORK, RWORK and
IWORK arrays, returns these values as the first entries of
the WORK, RWORK and IWORK arrays, and no error message
related to LWORK or LRWORK or LIWORK is issued by XERBLA.
```

*RWORK*

```
RWORK is DOUBLE PRECISION array,
dimension (LRWORK)
On exit, if INFO = 0, RWORK(1) returns the optimal LRWORK.
```

*LRWORK*

```
LRWORK is INTEGER
The dimension of the array RWORK.
If COMPZ = 'N' or N <= 1, LRWORK must be at least 1.
If COMPZ = 'V' and N > 1, LRWORK must be at least
1 + 3*N + 2*N*lg N + 4*N**2 ,
where lg( N ) = smallest integer k such
that 2**k >= N.
If COMPZ = 'I' and N > 1, LRWORK must be at least
1 + 4*N + 2*N**2 .
Note that for COMPZ = 'I' or 'V', then if N is less than or
equal to the minimum divide size, usually 25, then LRWORK
need only be max(1,2*(N-1)).
If LRWORK = -1, then a workspace query is assumed; the
routine only calculates the optimal sizes of the WORK, RWORK
and IWORK arrays, returns these values as the first entries
of the WORK, RWORK and IWORK arrays, and no error message
related to LWORK or LRWORK or LIWORK is issued by XERBLA.
```

*IWORK*

```
IWORK is INTEGER array, dimension (MAX(1,LIWORK))
On exit, if INFO = 0, IWORK(1) returns the optimal LIWORK.
```

*LIWORK*

```
LIWORK is INTEGER
The dimension of the array IWORK.
If COMPZ = 'N' or N <= 1, LIWORK must be at least 1.
If COMPZ = 'V' or N > 1, LIWORK must be at least
6 + 6*N + 5*N*lg N.
If COMPZ = 'I' or N > 1, LIWORK must be at least
3 + 5*N .
Note that for COMPZ = 'I' or 'V', then if N is less than or
equal to the minimum divide size, usually 25, then LIWORK
need only be 1.
If LIWORK = -1, then a workspace query is assumed; the
routine only calculates the optimal sizes of the WORK, RWORK
and IWORK arrays, returns these values as the first entries
of the WORK, RWORK and IWORK arrays, and no error message
related to LWORK or LRWORK or LIWORK is issued by XERBLA.
```

*INFO*

```
INFO is INTEGER
= 0: successful exit.
< 0: if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value.
> 0: The algorithm failed to compute an eigenvalue while
working on the submatrix lying in rows and columns
INFO/(N+1) through mod(INFO,N+1).
