Description
The
?latm1
routine computes the entries of
D
(1..
n
)
as specified by
mode
,
cond
and
irsign
.
idist
and
iseed
determine the generation of random numbers.
?latm1
is called by
slatmr
(for
slatm1
and
dlatm1
), and by
clatmr
(for
clatm1
and
zlatm1
) to generate random test matrices for LAPACK programs.
Input Parameters
mode
On entry describes how
d
is to be computed:
mode
= 0
means do not change
d
.
mode
= 1
sets
d

= 1
and
d
[1:
n
- 1]
= 1.0/
cond
mode
= 2
sets
d
[0:
n
- 2]
= 1
and
d
[
n
- 1]
=1.0/
cond
mode
= 3
sets
d
[
i
- 1]
=
cond
**(-(
i
-1)/(
n
-1))
mode
= 4
sets
d
[
i
- 1]
= 1 - (
i
-1)/(
n
-1)*(1 - 1/
cond
)
mode
= 5
sets
d
to random numbers in the range
( 1/
cond
, 1 )
such that their logarithms are uniformly distributed.
mode
= 6
sets
d
to random numbers from same distribution as the rest of the matrix.
mode
< 0
has the same meaning as
abs(
mode
)
, except that the order of the elements of
d
is reversed.
Thus if
mode
is positive,
d
has entries ranging from 1 to
1/
cond
, if negative, from
1/
cond
to 1.
cond
On entry, used as described under
mode
above. If used, it must be
1
.
irsign
On entry, if
mode
is not -6, 0, or 6, determines sign of entries of
d
.
If
irsign
= 0
, entries of
d
are unchanged.
If
irsign
= 1
, each entry of
d
is multiplied by a random complex number uniformly distributed with absolute value 1.
idist
Specifies the distribution of the random numbers.
For
slatm1
and
dlatm1
:
= 1: uniform (0,1)
= 2: uniform (-1,1)
= 3: normal (0,1)
For
clatm1
and
zlatm1
:
= 1: real and imaginary parts each uniform (0,1)
= 2: real and imaginary parts each uniform (-1,1)
= 3: real and imaginary parts each normal (0,1)
= 4: complex number uniform in disk(0, 1)
iseed
Array, size (4).
Specifies the seed of the random number generator. The random number generator uses a linear congruential sequence limited to small integers, and so should produce machine independent random numbers. The values of
iseed

are changed on exit, and can be used in the next call to
?latm1
to continue the same random number sequence.
d
Array, size
n
.
n
Number of entries of
d
.
Output Parameters
iseed
On exit, the seed is updated.
d
On exit,
d
is updated, unless
mode
= 0
.
info
If
info
= 0
, the execution is successful.
If
info
= -1
,
mode
is not in range -6 to 6.
If
info
= -2
,
mode
is neither -6, 0 nor 6, and
irsign
is neither 0 nor 1.
If
info
= -3
,
mode
is neither -6, 0 nor 6 and
cond
is less than 1.
If
info
= -4
,
mode
equals 6 or -6 and
idist
is not in range 1 to 4.
If
info
= -7
,
n
is negative.
