## NAME

ZTGSYL - solves the generalized Sylvester equation

## SYNOPSIS

SUBROUTINE ZTGSYL(
TRANS, IJOB, M, N, A, LDA, B, LDB, C, LDC, D, LDD, E, LDE, F, LDF, SCALE, DIF, WORK, LWORK, IWORK, INFO )

CHARACTER TRANS

INTEGER IJOB, INFO, LDA, LDB, LDC, LDD, LDE, LDF, LWORK, M, N

DOUBLE PRECISION DIF, SCALE

INTEGER IWORK( * )

COMPLEX*16 A( LDA, * ), B( LDB, * ), C( LDC, * ), D( LDD, * ), E( LDE, * ), F( LDF, * ), WORK( * )

## PURPOSE

ZTGSYL solves the generalized Sylvester equation:
R - L scale            (1)

R - L scale F
where R and L are unknown m-by-n matrices, (A, D), (B, E) and (C, F) are given matrix pairs of size m-by-m, n-by-n and m-by-n, respectively, with complex entries. A, B, D and E are upper triangular (i.e., (A,D) and (B,E) in generalized Schur form). The solution (R, L) overwrites (C, F). 0 <= SCALE <= 1
is an output scaling factor chosen to avoid overflow.
In matrix notation (1) is equivalent to solve Zx = scale*b, where Z is defined as

kron(In, A)  -kron(Baq, Im)        (2)

kron(In, D)  -kron(Eaq, Im) ],
Here Ix is the identity matrix of size x and Xaq is the conjugate transpose of X. Kron(X, Y) is the Kronecker product between the matrices X and Y.
If TRANS = aqCaq, y in the conjugate transposed system Zaq*y = scale*b is solved for, which is equivalent to solve for R and L in
Aaq Daq scale           (3)

Baq Eaq scale -F
This case (TRANS = aqCaq) is used to compute an one-norm-based estimate of Dif[(A,D), (B,E)], the separation between the matrix pairs (A,D) and (B,E), using ZLACON.
If IJOB >= 1, ZTGSYL computes a Frobenius norm-based estimate of Dif[(A,D),(B,E)]. That is, the reciprocal of a lower bound on the reciprocal of the smallest singular value of Z.
This is a level-3 BLAS algorithm.

## ARGUMENTS

TRANS (input) CHARACTER*1
= aqNaq: solve the generalized sylvester equation (1).
= aqCaq: solve the "conjugate transposed" system (3).
IJOB (input) INTEGER
Specifies what kind of functionality to be performed. =0: solve (1) only.
=1: The functionality of 0 and 3.
=2: The functionality of 0 and 4.
=3: Only an estimate of Dif[(A,D), (B,E)] is computed. (look ahead strategy is used). =4: Only an estimate of Dif[(A,D), (B,E)] is computed. (ZGECON on sub-systems is used). Not referenced if TRANS = aqCaq.
M (input) INTEGER
The order of the matrices A and D, and the row dimension of the matrices C, F, R and L.
N (input) INTEGER
The order of the matrices B and E, and the column dimension of the matrices C, F, R and L.
A (input) COMPLEX*16 array, dimension (LDA, M)
The upper triangular matrix A.
LDA (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array A. LDA >= max(1, M).
B (input) COMPLEX*16 array, dimension (LDB, N)
The upper triangular matrix B.
LDB (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array B. LDB >= max(1, N).
C (input/output) COMPLEX*16 array, dimension (LDC, N)
On entry, C contains the right-hand-side of the first matrix equation in (1) or (3). On exit, if IJOB = 0, 1 or 2, C has been overwritten by the solution R. If IJOB = 3 or 4 and TRANS = aqNaq, C holds R, the solution achieved during the computation of the Dif-estimate.
LDC (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array C. LDC >= max(1, M).
D (input) COMPLEX*16 array, dimension (LDD, M)
The upper triangular matrix D.
LDD (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array D. LDD >= max(1, M).
E (input) COMPLEX*16 array, dimension (LDE, N)
The upper triangular matrix E.
LDE (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array E. LDE >= max(1, N).
F (input/output) COMPLEX*16 array, dimension (LDF, N)
On entry, F contains the right-hand-side of the second matrix equation in (1) or (3). On exit, if IJOB = 0, 1 or 2, F has been overwritten by the solution L. If IJOB = 3 or 4 and TRANS = aqNaq, F holds L, the solution achieved during the computation of the Dif-estimate.
LDF (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array F. LDF >= max(1, M).
DIF (output) DOUBLE PRECISION
On exit DIF is the reciprocal of a lower bound of the reciprocal of the Dif-function, i.e. DIF is an upper bound of Dif[(A,D), (B,E)] = sigma-min(Z), where Z as in (2). IF IJOB = 0 or TRANS = aqCaq, DIF is not referenced.
SCALE (output) DOUBLE PRECISION
On exit SCALE is the scaling factor in (1) or (3). If 0 < SCALE < 1, C and F hold the solutions R and L, resp., to a slightly perturbed system but the input matrices A, B, D and E have not been changed. If SCALE = 0, R and L will hold the solutions to the homogenious system with C = F = 0.
WORK (workspace/output) COMPLEX*16 array, dimension (MAX(1,LWORK))
On exit, if INFO = 0, WORK(1) returns the optimal LWORK.
LWORK (input) INTEGER
The dimension of the array WORK. LWORK > = 1. If IJOB = 1 or 2 and TRANS = aqNaq, LWORK >= max(1,2*M*N). If LWORK = -1, then a workspace query is assumed; the routine only calculates the optimal size of the WORK array, returns this value as the first entry of the WORK array, and no error message related to LWORK is issued by XERBLA.
IWORK (workspace) INTEGER array, dimension (M+N+2)
INFO (output) INTEGER
=0: successful exit
<0: If INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value.
>0: (A, D) and (B, E) have common or very close eigenvalues.
