1  Purpose

F08FLF (DDISNA) computes the reciprocal condition numbers for the eigenvectors of a real symmetric or complex Hermitian m by m matrix A, or for the left or right singular vectors of a general m by n matrix A.

2  Specification

SUBROUTINE F08FLF ( JOB, M, N, D, SEP, INFO)
INTEGER  M, N, INFO
REAL (KIND=nag_wp)  D(*), SEP(*)
CHARACTER(1)  JOB
The routine may be called by its LAPACK name ddisna.

3  Description

The bound on the error, measured by the angle in radians, for the ith computed vector is given by ε A2 / sepi , where ε is the machine precision and sepi  is the reciprocal condition number for the vectors, returned in the array element SEPi . SEPi  is restricted to be at least ε A2  in order to limit the size of the error bound.

5  Parameters

1:     JOB – CHARACTER(1)Input
On entry: specifies for which problem the reciprocal condition number should be computed.
JOB='E'
The eigenvectors of a symmetric or Hermitian matrix.
JOB='L'
The left singular vectors of a general matrix.
JOB='R'
The right singular vectors of a general matrix.
Constraint: JOB='E', 'L' or 'R'.
2:     M – INTEGERInput
On entry: m, the number of rows of the matrix A.
Constraint: M0.
3:     N – INTEGERInput
Constraint: if JOB='L' or 'R', N0.
4:     D(*) – REAL (KIND=nag_wp) arrayInput
Note: the dimension of the array D must be at least max1,M if JOB='E' and at least max1,minM,N if JOB='L' or 'R'.
On entry: the eigenvalues if JOB='E', or singular values if JOB='L' or 'R' of the matrix A, in either increasing or decreasing order. If JOB='L' or 'R' they must be non-negative.
5:     SEP(*) – REAL (KIND=nag_wp) arrayOutput
Note: the dimension of the array SEP must be at least max1,M if JOB='E' and at least max1,minM,N if JOB='L' or 'R'.
On exit: the reciprocal condition numbers of the vectors.
6:     INFO – INTEGEROutput

6  Error Indicators and Warnings

Errors or warnings detected by the routine:
INFO<0
If INFO=-i, argument i had an illegal value. An explanatory message is output, and execution of the program is terminated.

7  Accuracy

The reciprocal condition numbers are computed to machine precision relative to the size of the eigenvalues, or singular values.

8  Further Comments

F08FLF (DDISNA) may also be used towards computing error bounds for the eigenvectors of the generalized symmetric or Hermitian definite eigenproblem. See Golub and Van Loan (1996) for further details on the error bounds.

9  Example

The use of F08FLF (DDISNA) in computing error bounds for eigenvectors of the symmetric eigenvalue problem is illustrated in Section 9 in F08FAF (DSYEV); its use in computing error bounds for singular vectors is illustrated in Section 9 in F08KBF (DGESVD); and its use in computing error bounds for eigenvectors of the generalized symmetric definite eigenvalue problem is illustrated in Section 9 in F08SAF (DSYGV).
