Parameters
acomplex, array-like, shape

The matrix .

Returns
acomplex, ndarray, shape

Contains, if no exception or warning is raised, the principal matrix square root, . Alternatively, if = 1, contains an non-principal square root of .

Raises
NagValueError
(errno )

On entry, .

Constraint: .

(errno )

has a defective vanishing eigenvalue. The square root cannot be found in this case.

(errno )

An internal error occurred. It is likely that the function was called incorrectly.

Warns
NagAlgorithmicWarning
(errno )

has a negative or semisimple vanishing eigenvalue. A non-principal square root is returned.

Notes

A square root of a matrix is a solution to the equation . A nonsingular matrix has multiple square roots. For a matrix with no eigenvalues on the closed negative real line, the principal square root, denoted by , is the unique square root whose eigenvalues lie in the open right half-plane.

is computed using the algorithm described in Björck and Hammarling (1983). In addition a blocking scheme described in Deadman et al. (2013) is used.
