Cosine-Sine Decomposition: LAPACK Computational Routines

describes LAPACK computational routines for computing the cosine-sine decomposition (CS decomposition) of a partitioned unitary/orthogonal matrix. The algorithm computes a complete 2-by-2 CS decomposition, which requires simultaneous diagonalization of all the four blocks of a unitary/orthogonal matrix partitioned into a 2-by-2 block structure.
The computation has the following phases:
  1. The matrix is reduced to a bidiagonal block form.
  2. The blocks are simultaneously diagonalized using techniques from the bidiagonal SVD algorithms.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
