Functions/Subroutines
subroutine chegst (ITYPE, UPLO, N, A, LDA, B, LDB, INFO)
CHEGST

Function/Subroutine Documentation
subroutine chegst (integerITYPE, characterUPLO, integerN, complex, dimension( lda, * )A, integerLDA, complex, dimension( ldb, * )B, integerLDB,
integerINFO)
CHEGST

Purpose:

CHEGST reduces a complex Hermitian-definite generalized
eigenproblem to standard form.

If ITYPE = 1, the problem is A*x = lambda*B*x,
and A is overwritten by inv(U**H)*A*inv(U) or inv(L)*A*inv(L**H)

If ITYPE = 2 or 3, the problem is A*B*x = lambda*x or
B*A*x = lambda*x, and A is overwritten by U*A*U**H or L**H*A*L.

B must have been previously factorized as U**H*U or L*L**H by CPOTRF.

Parameters:
ITYPE

ITYPE is INTEGER
= 1: compute inv(U**H)*A*inv(U) or inv(L)*A*inv(L**H);
= 2 or 3: compute U*A*U**H or L**H*A*L.

UPLO

UPLO is CHARACTER*1
= 'U':  Upper triangle of A is stored and B is factored as
U**H*U;
= 'L':  Lower triangle of A is stored and B is factored as
L*L**H.

N

N is INTEGER
The order of the matrices A and B.  N >= 0.

A

A is COMPLEX array, dimension (LDA,N)
On entry, the Hermitian matrix A.	If UPLO = 'U', the leading
N-by-N upper triangular part of A contains the upper
triangular part of the matrix A, and the strictly lower
triangular part of A is not referenced.  If UPLO = 'L', the
leading N-by-N lower triangular part of A contains the lower
triangular part of the matrix A, and the strictly upper
triangular part of A is not referenced.

On exit, if INFO = 0, the transformed matrix, stored in the
same format as A.

LDA

LDA is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array A.  LDA >= max(1,N).

B

B is COMPLEX array, dimension (LDB,N)
The triangular factor from the Cholesky factorization of B,
as returned by CPOTRF.

LDB

LDB is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array B.  LDB >= max(1,N).

INFO

INFO is INTEGER
= 0:  successful exit
< 0:  if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value
