Sstrange behavior MKL-FEAST

Sstrange behavior MKL-FEAST

At the moment I am trying to implement a minimal working example of the <<dfeast_scsrgv>>   routine  in c++ of the FEAST package to solve the generalized eigenvalue problem Ax=lBx. The problem size is just 4x4 for testing  purposes

The first time I executed the program I got the error:
Info =3 that is a warning  "Size of the subspace m0 is too small (m0<m)".

thus I changed the value of M0 from 4 to 10 and tried again.

This time I the error was  "201" which means  "Problem with size of initial subspace m0 (m0≤0)"

this does not make any sense as M0 is positive.

I would appreciate any help on this.

this is the problem with documentation -- the initial guess for subspace dimension have to be like the follows  0<M0<=n

regards, Gennady

the documentation would be updated the next update of MKL ( 11.1 update 2 ) - we will let you know when it will happens,

Thank you, that solved the problem


fyi -- the documentation has been updated into the version 11.1.2 released yesterday. You can check this update and let us know if any further issue/improvements we have to do with mkl's doc. regards, gennady.
