The algorithm failed to converge; off-diagonal elements of an intermediate tridiagonal form did not converge to zero.


The Hermitian matrix is first reduced to real tridiagonal form, using unitary similarity transformations, and then the algorithm is applied to the tridiagonal matrix to compute the eigenvalues and (optionally) the eigenvectors.
