## NAME

SSPEVD - computes all the eigenvalues and, optionally, eigenvectors of a real symmetric matrix A in packed storage

## SYNOPSIS

SUBROUTINE SSPEVD(
JOBZ, UPLO, N, AP, W, Z, LDZ, WORK, LWORK, IWORK, LIWORK, INFO )

CHARACTER JOBZ, UPLO

INTEGER INFO, LDZ, LIWORK, LWORK, N

INTEGER IWORK( * )

REAL AP( * ), W( * ), WORK( * ), Z( LDZ, * )

## PURPOSE

SSPEVD computes all the eigenvalues and, optionally, eigenvectors of a real symmetric matrix A in packed storage. If eigenvectors are desired, it uses a divide and conquer algorithm.
The divide and conquer algorithm makes very mild assumptions about floating point arithmetic. It will work on machines with a guard digit in add/subtract, or on those binary machines without guard digits which subtract like the Cray X-MP, Cray Y-MP, Cray C-90, or Cray-2. It could conceivably fail on hexadecimal or decimal machines without guard digits, but we know of none.

## ARGUMENTS

JOBZ (input) CHARACTER*1
= aqNaq: Compute eigenvalues only;
= aqVaq: Compute eigenvalues and eigenvectors.
UPLO (input) CHARACTER*1

= aqUaq: Upper triangle of A is stored;
= aqLaq: Lower triangle of A is stored.
N (input) INTEGER
The order of the matrix A. N >= 0.
AP (input/output) REAL array, dimension (N*(N+1)/2)
On entry, the upper or lower triangle of the symmetric matrix A, packed columnwise in a linear array. The j-th column of A is stored in the array AP as follows: if UPLO = aqUaq, AP(i + (j-1)*j/2) = A(i,j) for 1<=i<=j; if UPLO = aqLaq, AP(i + (j-1)*(2*n-j)/2) = A(i,j) for j<=i<=n. On exit, AP is overwritten by values generated during the reduction to tridiagonal form. If UPLO = aqUaq, the diagonal and first superdiagonal of the tridiagonal matrix T overwrite the corresponding elements of A, and if UPLO = aqLaq, the diagonal and first subdiagonal of T overwrite the corresponding elements of A.
W (output) REAL array, dimension (N)
If INFO = 0, the eigenvalues in ascending order.
Z (output) REAL array, dimension (LDZ, N)
If JOBZ = aqVaq, then if INFO = 0, Z contains the orthonormal eigenvectors of the matrix A, with the i-th column of Z holding the eigenvector associated with W(i). If JOBZ = aqNaq, then Z is not referenced.
LDZ (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array Z. LDZ >= 1, and if JOBZ = aqVaq, LDZ >= max(1,N).
WORK (workspace/output) REAL array, dimension (MAX(1,LWORK))
On exit, if INFO = 0, WORK(1) returns the required LWORK.
LWORK (input) INTEGER
The dimension of the array WORK. If N <= 1, LWORK must be at least 1. If JOBZ = aqNaq and N > 1, LWORK must be at least 2*N. If JOBZ = aqVaq and N > 1, LWORK must be at least 1 + 6*N + N**2. If LWORK = -1, then a workspace query is assumed; the routine only calculates the required sizes of the WORK and IWORK arrays, returns these values as the first entries of the WORK and IWORK arrays, and no error message related to LWORK or LIWORK is issued by XERBLA.
IWORK (workspace/output) INTEGER array, dimension (MAX(1,LIWORK))
On exit, if INFO = 0, IWORK(1) returns the required LIWORK.
LIWORK (input) INTEGER
The dimension of the array IWORK. If JOBZ = aqNaq or N <= 1, LIWORK must be at least 1. If JOBZ = aqVaq and N > 1, LIWORK must be at least 3 + 5*N. If LIWORK = -1, then a workspace query is assumed; the routine only calculates the required sizes of the WORK and IWORK arrays, returns these values as the first entries of the WORK and IWORK arrays, and no error message related to LWORK or LIWORK is issued by XERBLA.
INFO (output) INTEGER
= 0: successful exit
< 0: if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value.
> 0: if INFO = i, the algorithm failed to converge; i off-diagonal elements of an intermediate tridiagonal form did not converge to zero.
