Function/Subroutine Documentation
subroutine chpev (characterJOBZ, characterUPLO, integerN, complex, dimension( * )AP, real, dimension( * )W, complex, dimension( ldz, * )Z,
integerLDZ, complex, dimension( * )WORK, real, dimension( * )RWORK, integerINFO)
CHPEV computes the eigenvalues and, optionally, the left and/or right eigenvectors for OTHER matrices

Purpose:

CHPEV computes all the eigenvalues and, optionally, eigenvectors of a
complex Hermitian matrix in packed storage.

Parameters:
JOBZ

JOBZ is CHARACTER*1
= 'N':  Compute eigenvalues only;
= 'V':  Compute eigenvalues and eigenvectors.

UPLO

UPLO is CHARACTER*1
= 'U':  Upper triangle of A is stored;
= 'L':  Lower triangle of A is stored.

N

N is INTEGER
The order of the matrix A.  N >= 0.

AP

AP is COMPLEX array, dimension (N*(N+1)/2)
On entry, the upper or lower triangle of the Hermitian matrix
A, packed columnwise in a linear array.  The j-th column of A
is stored in the array AP as follows:
if UPLO = 'U', AP(i + (j-1)*j/2) = A(i,j) for 1<=i<=j;
if UPLO = 'L', AP(i + (j-1)*(2*n-j)/2) = A(i,j) for j<=i<=n.

On exit, AP is overwritten by values generated during the
reduction to tridiagonal form.  If UPLO = 'U', the diagonal
and first superdiagonal of the tridiagonal matrix T overwrite
the corresponding elements of A, and if UPLO = 'L', the
diagonal and first subdiagonal of T overwrite the
corresponding elements of A.

W

W is REAL array, dimension (N)
If INFO = 0, the eigenvalues in ascending order.

Z

Z is COMPLEX array, dimension (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).
If JOBZ = 'N', then Z is not referenced.

LDZ

LDZ is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array Z.  LDZ >= 1, and if
JOBZ = 'V', LDZ >= max(1,N).

WORK

WORK is COMPLEX array, dimension (max(1, 2*N-1))

RWORK

RWORK is REAL array, dimension (max(1, 3*N-2))

INFO

INFO is INTEGER
= 0:  successful exit.
< 0:  if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value.
> 0:  if INFO = i, the algorithm failed to converge; i
off-diagonal elements of an intermediate tridiagonal
form did not converge to zero.
