# NAG C Library Function Document

## 1Purpose

nag_zhseqr (f08psc) computes all the eigenvalues and, optionally, the Schur factorization of a complex Hessenberg matrix or a complex general matrix which has been reduced to Hessenberg form.

## 2Specification

 #include #include
 void nag_zhseqr (Nag_OrderType order, Nag_JobType job, Nag_ComputeZType compz, Integer n, Integer ilo, Integer ihi, Complex h[], Integer pdh, Complex w[], Complex z[], Integer pdz, NagError *fail)

## 3Description

nag_zhseqr (f08psc) computes all the eigenvalues and, optionally, the Schur factorization of a complex upper Hessenberg matrix $H$:
 $H = ZTZH ,$
where $T$ is an upper triangular matrix (the Schur form of $H$), and $Z$ is the unitary matrix whose columns are the Schur vectors ${z}_{i}$. The diagonal elements of $T$ are the eigenvalues of $H$.
The function may also be used to compute the Schur factorization of a complex general matrix $A$ which has been reduced to upper Hessenberg form $H$:
 $A = QHQH, where ​Q​ is unitary, = QZTQZH.$
In this case, after nag_zgehrd (f08nsc) has been called to reduce $A$ to Hessenberg form, nag_zunghr (f08ntc) must be called to form $Q$ explicitly; $Q$ is then passed to nag_zhseqr (f08psc), which must be called with ${\mathbf{compz}}=\mathrm{Nag_UpdateZ}$.
The function can also take advantage of a previous call to nag_zgebal (f08nvc) which may have balanced the original matrix before reducing it to Hessenberg form, so that the Hessenberg matrix $H$ has the structure:
 $H11 H12 H13 H22 H23 H33$
where ${H}_{11}$ and ${H}_{33}$ are upper triangular. If so, only the central diagonal block ${H}_{22}$ (in rows and columns ${i}_{\mathrm{lo}}$ to ${i}_{\mathrm{hi}}$) needs to be further reduced to Schur form (the blocks ${H}_{12}$ and ${H}_{23}$ are also affected). Therefore the values of ${i}_{\mathrm{lo}}$ and ${i}_{\mathrm{hi}}$ can be supplied to nag_zhseqr (f08psc) directly. Also, nag_zgebak (f08nwc) must be called after this function to permute the Schur vectors of the balanced matrix to those of the original matrix. If nag_zgebal (f08nvc) has not been called however, then ${i}_{\mathrm{lo}}$ must be set to $1$ and ${i}_{\mathrm{hi}}$ to $n$. Note that if the Schur factorization of $A$ is required, nag_zgebal (f08nvc) must not be called with ${\mathbf{job}}=\mathrm{Nag_Scale}$ or $\mathrm{Nag_DoBoth}$, because the balancing transformation is not unitary.
nag_zhseqr (f08psc) uses a multishift form of the upper Hessenberg $QR$ algorithm, due to Bai and Demmel (1989). The Schur vectors are normalized so that ${‖{z}_{i}‖}_{2}=1$, but are determined only to within a complex factor of absolute value $1$.

## 7Accuracy

The computed Schur factorization is the exact factorization of a nearby matrix $\left(H+E\right)$, where
 $E2 = Oε H2 ,$
and $\epsilon$ is the machine precision.
If ${\lambda }_{i}$ is an exact eigenvalue, and ${\stackrel{~}{\lambda }}_{i}$ is the corresponding computed value, then
 $λ~i - λi ≤ c n ε H2 si ,$
where $c\left(n\right)$ is a modestly increasing function of $n$, and ${s}_{i}$ is the reciprocal condition number of ${\lambda }_{i}$. The condition numbers ${s}_{i}$ may be computed by calling nag_ztrsna (f08qyc).

## 8Parallelism and Performance

nag_zhseqr (f08psc) is threaded by NAG for parallel execution in multithreaded implementations of the NAG Library.
nag_zhseqr (f08psc) makes calls to BLAS and/or LAPACK routines, which may be threaded within the vendor library used by this implementation. Consult the documentation for the vendor library for further information.
Please consult the x06 Chapter Introduction for information on how to control and interrogate the OpenMP environment used within this function. Please also consult the Users' Note for your implementation for any additional implementation-specific information.

## 9Further Comments

The total number of real floating-point operations depends on how rapidly the algorithm converges, but is typically about:
• $25{n}^{3}$ if only eigenvalues are computed;
• $35{n}^{3}$ if the Schur form is computed;
• $70{n}^{3}$ if the full Schur factorization is computed.
The real analogue of this function is nag_dhseqr (f08pec).
