## NAME

DSYGST - reduces a real symmetric-definite generalized eigenproblem to standard form

## SYNOPSIS

SUBROUTINE DSYGST(
ITYPE, UPLO, N, A, LDA, B, LDB, INFO )

CHARACTER UPLO

INTEGER INFO, ITYPE, LDA, LDB, N

DOUBLE PRECISION A( LDA, * ), B( LDB, * )

## PURPOSE

DSYGST reduces a real symmetric-definite generalized eigenproblem to standard form. If ITYPE = 1, the problem is A*x = lambda*B*x,
and A is overwritten by inv(U**T)*A*inv(U) or inv(L)*A*inv(L**T) If ITYPE = 2 or 3, the problem is A*B*x = lambda*x or
B*A*x = lambda*x, and A is overwritten by U*A*U**T or L**T*A*L. B must have been previously factorized as U**T*U or L*L**T by DPOTRF.

## ARGUMENTS

ITYPE (input) INTEGER
= 1: compute inv(U**T)*A*inv(U) or inv(L)*A*inv(L**T);
= 2 or 3: compute U*A*U**T or L**T*A*L.
UPLO (input) CHARACTER*1

= aqUaq: Upper triangle of A is stored and B is factored as U**T*U; = aqLaq: Lower triangle of A is stored and B is factored as L*L**T.
N (input) INTEGER
The order of the matrices A and B. N >= 0.
A (input/output) DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (LDA,N)
On entry, the symmetric matrix A. If UPLO = aqUaq, the leading N-by-N upper triangular part of A contains the upper triangular part of the matrix A, and the strictly lower triangular part of A is not referenced. If UPLO = aqLaq, the leading N-by-N lower triangular part of A contains the lower triangular part of the matrix A, and the strictly upper triangular part of A is not referenced. On exit, if INFO = 0, the transformed matrix, stored in the same format as A.
LDA (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array A. LDA >= max(1,N).
B (input) DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (LDB,N)
The triangular factor from the Cholesky factorization of B, as returned by DPOTRF.
LDB (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array B. LDB >= max(1,N).
INFO (output) INTEGER
= 0: successful exit
< 0: if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value
