NAME

SLAED6 - computes the positive or negative root (closest to the origin) of z(1) z(2) z(3) f(x) = rho + --------- + ---------- + --------- d(1)-x d(2)-x d(3)-x It is assumed that if ORGATI = .true

SYNOPSIS

SUBROUTINE SLAED6(
KNITER, ORGATI, RHO, D, Z, FINIT, TAU, INFO )

    
LOGICAL ORGATI

    
INTEGER INFO, KNITER

    
REAL FINIT, RHO, TAU

    
REAL D( 3 ), Z( 3 )

PURPOSE

SLAED6 computes the positive or negative root (closest to the origin) of
           z(1)        z(2)        z(3) f(x) = rho + --------- + ---------- + ---------
          d(1)-x      d(2)-x      d(3)-x
otherwise it is between d(1) and d(2)
This routine will be called by SLAED4 when necessary. In most cases, the root sought is the smallest in magnitude, though it might not be in some extremely rare situations.

ARGUMENTS

KNITER (input) INTEGER
Refer to SLAED4 for its significance.
ORGATI (input) LOGICAL
If ORGATI is true, the needed root is between d(2) and d(3); otherwise it is between d(1) and d(2). See SLAED4 for further details.
RHO (input) REAL
Refer to the equation f(x) above.
D (input) REAL array, dimension (3)
D satisfies d(1) < d(2) < d(3).
Z (input) REAL array, dimension (3)
Each of the elements in z must be positive.
FINIT (input) REAL
The value of f at 0. It is more accurate than the one evaluated inside this routine (if someone wants to do so).
TAU (output) REAL
The root of the equation f(x).
INFO (output) INTEGER
= 0: successful exit
> 0: if INFO = 1, failure to converge

(machine parameters are computed on each entry). SJH.

Gragg-Thornton-Warner cubic convergent scheme for better stability.
