# naginterfaces.library.lapackeig.dsyevd¶

naginterfaces.library.lapackeig.dsyevd(job, uplo, a)[source]

dsyevd computes all the eigenvalues and, optionally, all the eigenvectors of a real symmetric matrix. If the eigenvectors are requested, then it uses a divide-and-conquer algorithm to compute eigenvalues and eigenvectors. However, if only eigenvalues are required, then it uses the Pal–Walker–Kahan variant of the or algorithm.

Parameters
jobstr, length 1

Indicates whether eigenvectors are computed.

Only eigenvalues are computed.

Eigenvalues and eigenvectors are computed.

uplostr, length 1

Indicates whether the upper or lower triangular part of is stored.

The upper triangular part of is stored.

The lower triangular part of is stored.

afloat, array-like, shape

The symmetric matrix .

Returns
afloat, ndarray, shape

If , is overwritten by the orthogonal matrix which contains the eigenvectors of .

wfloat, ndarray, shape

The eigenvalues of the matrix in ascending order.

Raises
NagValueError
(errno )

On entry, error in parameter .

Constraint: or .

(errno )

On entry, error in parameter .

Constraint: or .

(errno )

On entry, error in parameter .

Constraint: .

(errno )

If and , the algorithm failed to converge; elements of an intermediate tridiagonal form did not converge to zero; if and , then the algorithm failed to compute an eigenvalue while working on the submatrix lying in rows and column through .

Notes

dsyevd computes all the eigenvalues and, optionally, all the eigenvectors of a real symmetric matrix . In other words, it can compute the spectral factorization of as

where is a diagonal matrix whose diagonal elements are the eigenvalues , and is the orthogonal matrix whose columns are the eigenvectors . Thus
