Description
The routine reduces a packed complex Hermitian matrix
A
to symmetric tridiagonal form
T
by a unitary similarity transformation:
A
=
Q*T*Q
H
. The unitary matrix
Q
is not formed explicitly but is represented as a product of
n
-1 elementary reflectors. Routines are provided for working with
Q
in this representation (see
Application Notes
below).
Input Parameters
matrix_layout
Specifies whether matrix storage layout is row major (
LAPACK_ROW_MAJOR
) or column major (
LAPACK_COL_MAJOR
).
uplo
Must be
'U'
or
'L'
.
If
uplo
=
'U'
,
ap
stores the packed upper triangle of
A
.
If
uplo
=
'L'
,
ap
stores the packed lower triangle of
A
.
n
The order of the matrix
A
(
n
0
).
ap
Array, size at least max(1,
n
(
n
+1)/2). Contains either upper or lower triangle of
A
(as specified by
uplo
) in the packed form described in "Matrix Storage Schemes.
Output Parameters
ap
Overwritten by the tridiagonal matrix
T
and details of the unitary matrix
Q
, as specified by
uplo
.
d
,
e
Arrays:
d
contains the diagonal elements of the matrix
T
.
The size of
d
must be at least max(1,
n
).
e
contains the off-diagonal elements of
T
.
The size of
e
must be at least max(1,
n
-1).
tau
Array, size at least max(1,
n
-1). Stores (
n
-1) scalars that define elementary reflectors in decomposition of the unitary matrix
Q
in a product of reflectors.
Return Values
This function returns a value
info
.
If
info
=0
, the execution is successful.
If
info
=
-i
, the
i
-th parameter had an illegal value.
Application Notes
The computed matrix
T
is exactly similar to a matrix
A
+
E
, where
||
E
||
2
=
c
(
n
)*
ε
*||
A
||
2
,
c
(
n
)
is a modestly increasing function of
n
, and
ε
is the machine precision.
The approximate number of floating-point operations is
(16/3)
n
3
.
After calling this routine, you can call the following:
to form the computed matrix
Q
explicitly
to multiply a complex matrix by
Q
.
The real counterpart of this routine is sptrd.
