(errno )

Unexpected failure in eigenvalue computation. Please contact NAG.

(errno )

The algorithm failed to converge. The th diagonal was not zero: .

Notes

A tri-diagonal system of equations is formed from the coefficients of an underlying three-term recurrence formula:

for a set of othogonal polynomials induced by the quadrature. This is described in greater detail in the D01 Introduction. The user is required to specify the three-term recurrence and the value of the integral of the chosen weight function over the chosen interval.

As described in Golub and Welsch (1969) the abscissae are computed from the eigenvalues of this matrix and the weights from the first component of the eigenvectors.

LAPACK functions are used for the linear algebra to speed up computation.
