The routine computes all eigenvalues and, optionally, eigenvectors of a complex Hermitian band matrix A.

Input Parameters


Specifies whether matrix storage layout is row major (LAPACK_ROW_MAJOR) or column major (LAPACK_COL_MAJOR).


Must be 'N' or 'V'.

If jobz = 'N', then only eigenvalues are computed.

If jobz = 'V', then eigenvalues and eigenvectors are computed.


Must be 'U' or 'L'.

If uplo = 'U', ab stores the upper triangular part of A.

If uplo = 'L', ab stores the lower triangular part of A.


The order of the matrix A (n 0).


The number of super- or sub-diagonals in A

(kd 0).


ab (size at least max(1, ldab*n) for column major layout and at least max(1, ldab*(kd + 1)) for row major layout) is an array containing either upper or lower triangular part of the Hermitian matrix A (as specified by uplo) in band storage format.


The leading dimension of ab; must be at least kd +1 for column major layout and n for row major layout.


The leading dimension of the output array z.


if jobz = 'N', then ldz 1;

if jobz = 'V', then ldz max(1, n) .

Output Parameters


Array, size at least max(1, n).

If info = 0, contains the eigenvalues in ascending order.


Array z(size max(1, ldz*n).

If jobz = 'V', then if info = 0, z contains the orthonormal eigenvectors of the matrix A, with the i-th column of z holding the eigenvector associated with w[i - 1].

If jobz = 'N', then z is not referenced.


On exit, this array is overwritten by the values generated during the reduction to tridiagonal form(see the description of hbtrd).

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.

If info = i, then the algorithm failed to converge;

i indicates the number of elements of an intermediate tridiagonal form which did not converge to zero.
