1  Purpose

nag_dsyevx (f08fbc) computes selected eigenvalues and, optionally, eigenvectors of a real n by n symmetric matrix A. Eigenvalues and eigenvectors can be selected by specifying either a range of values or a range of indices for the desired eigenvalues.

2  Specification

#include <nag.h>
#include <nagf08.h>
void  nag_dsyevx (Nag_OrderType order, Nag_JobType job, Nag_RangeType range, Nag_UploType uplo, Integer n, double a[], Integer pda, double vl, double vu, Integer il, Integer iu, double abstol, Integer *m, double w[], double z[], Integer pdz, Integer jfail[], NagError *fail)

3  Description

The symmetric matrix A is first reduced to tridiagonal form, using orthogonal similarity transformations. The required eigenvalues and eigenvectors are then computed from the tridiagonal matrix; the method used depends upon whether all, or selected, eigenvalues and eigenvectors are required.

5  Arguments

1:     orderNag_OrderTypeInput
On entry: the order argument specifies the two-dimensional storage scheme being used, i.e., row-major ordering or column-major ordering. C language defined storage is specified by order=Nag_RowMajor. See Section 3.2.1.3 in the Essential Introduction for a more detailed explanation of the use of this argument.
Constraint: order=Nag_RowMajor or Nag_ColMajor.
2:     jobNag_JobTypeInput
On entry: indicates whether eigenvectors are computed.
job=Nag_EigVals
Only eigenvalues are computed.
job=Nag_DoBoth
Eigenvalues and eigenvectors are computed.
Constraint: job=Nag_EigVals or Nag_DoBoth.
3:     rangeNag_RangeTypeInput
On entry: if range=Nag_AllValues, all eigenvalues will be found.
If range=Nag_Interval, all eigenvalues in the half-open interval vl,vu will be found.
If range=Nag_Indices, the ilth to iuth eigenvalues will be found.
Constraint: range=Nag_AllValues, Nag_Interval or Nag_Indices.
4:     uploNag_UploTypeInput
On entry: if uplo=Nag_Upper, the upper triangular part of A is stored.
If uplo=Nag_Lower, the lower triangular part of A is stored.
Constraint: uplo=Nag_Upper or Nag_Lower.
5:     nIntegerInput
On entry: n, the order of the matrix A.
Constraint: n0.
6:     a[dim]doubleInput/Output
Note: the dimension, dim, of the array a must be at least max1,pda×n.
On entry: the n by n symmetric matrix A.
If order=Nag_ColMajor, Aij is stored in a[j-1×pda+i-1].
If order=Nag_RowMajor, Aij is stored in a[i-1×pda+j-1].
If uplo=Nag_Upper, the upper triangular part of A must be stored and the elements of the array below the diagonal are not referenced.
If uplo=Nag_Lower, the lower triangular part of A must be stored and the elements of the array above the diagonal are not referenced.
On exit: the lower triangle (if uplo=Nag_Lower) or the upper triangle (if uplo=Nag_Upper) of a, including the diagonal, is overwritten.
7:     pdaIntegerInput
On entry: the stride separating row or column elements (depending on the value of order) in the array a.
Constraint: pdamax1,n.
8:     vldoubleInput
9:     vudoubleInput
On entry: if range=Nag_Interval, the lower and upper bounds of the interval to be searched for eigenvalues.
If range=Nag_AllValues or Nag_Indices, vl and vu are not referenced.
Constraint: if range=Nag_Interval, vl<vu.
10:   ilIntegerInput
11:   iuIntegerInput
On entry: if range=Nag_Indices, the indices (in ascending order) of the smallest and largest eigenvalues to be returned.
If range=Nag_AllValues or Nag_Interval, il and iu are not referenced.
Constraints:
  • if range=Nag_Indices and n=0, il=1 and iu=0;
  • if range=Nag_Indices and n>0, 1 il iu n .
12:   abstoldoubleInput
On entry: 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+ε maxa,b ,
where ε  is the machine precision. If abstol is less than or equal to zero, then ε T1  will be used in its place, where T is the tridiagonal matrix obtained by reducing A to tridiagonal form. Eigenvalues will be computed most accurately when abstol is set to twice the underflow threshold 2 × nag_real_safe_small_number , not zero. If this function returns with fail.code= NE_CONVERGENCE, indicating that some eigenvectors did not converge, try setting abstol to 2 × nag_real_safe_small_number . See Demmel and Kahan (1990).
13:   mInteger *Output
On exit: the total number of eigenvalues found. 0mn.
If range=Nag_AllValues, m=n.
If range=Nag_Indices, m=iu-il+1.
14:   w[dim]doubleOutput
Note: the dimension, dim, of the array w must be at least max1,n.
On exit: the first m elements contain the selected eigenvalues in ascending order.
15:   z[dim]doubleOutput
Note: the dimension, dim, of the array z must be at least
  • max1,pdz×n when job=Nag_DoBoth;
  • 1 otherwise.
The ith element of the jth vector Z is stored in
  • z[j-1×pdz+i-1] when order=Nag_ColMajor;
  • z[i-1×pdz+j-1] when order=Nag_RowMajor.
On exit: if job=Nag_DoBoth, then
  • if fail.code= NE_NOERROR, the first m columns of Z contain the orthonormal eigenvectors of the matrix A corresponding to the selected eigenvalues, with the ith column of Z holding the eigenvector associated with w[i-1];
  • if an eigenvector fails to converge (fail.code= NE_CONVERGENCE), then that column of Z contains the latest approximation to the eigenvector, and the index of the eigenvector is returned in jfail.
If job=Nag_EigVals, z is not referenced.
16:   pdzIntegerInput
On entry: the stride used in the array z.
Constraints:
  • if job=Nag_DoBoth, pdz max1,n ;
  • otherwise pdz1.
17:   jfail[dim]IntegerOutput
Note: the dimension, dim, of the array jfail must be at least max1,n.
On exit: if job=Nag_DoBoth, then
  • if fail.code= NE_NOERROR, the first m elements of jfail are zero;

7  Accuracy

The computed eigenvalues and eigenvectors are exact for a nearby matrix A+E, where
E2 = Oε A2 ,
and ε is the machine precision. See Section 4.7 of Anderson et al. (1999) for further details.

8  Further Comments

The total number of floating point operations is proportional to n3.
The complex analogue of this function is nag_zheevx (f08fpc).
