SYNOPSIS
Functions/Subroutines
INTEGER function slaneg (N, D, LLD, SIGMA, PIVMIN, R)
SLANEG computes the Sturm count.

Function/Subroutine Documentation
INTEGER function slaneg (integerN, real, dimension( * )D, real, dimension( * )LLD, realSIGMA, realPIVMIN, integerR)
SLANEG computes the Sturm count.

Purpose:

SLANEG computes the Sturm count, the number of negative pivots
encountered while factoring tridiagonal T - sigma I = L D L^T.
This implementation works directly on the factors without forming
the tridiagonal matrix T.  The Sturm count is also the number of
eigenvalues of T less than sigma.

This routine is called from SLARRB.

The current routine does not use the PIVMIN parameter but rather
requires IEEE-754 propagation of Infinities and NaNs.  This
routine also has no input range restrictions but does require
default exception handling such that x/0 produces Inf when x is
non-zero, and Inf/Inf produces NaN.  For more information, see:

Modern Symmetric Tridiagonal Eigensolvers," SIAM Journal on
Scientific Computing, v28, n5, 2006.  DOI 10.1137/050641624
(Tech report version in LAWN 172 with the same title.)

Parameters:
N

N is INTEGER
The order of the matrix.

D

D is REAL array, dimension (N)
The N diagonal elements of the diagonal matrix D.

LLD

LLD is REAL array, dimension (N-1)
The (N-1) elements L(i)*L(i)*D(i).

SIGMA

SIGMA is REAL
Shift amount in T - sigma I = L D L^T.

PIVMIN

PIVMIN is REAL
The minimum pivot in the Sturm sequence.  May be used
when zero pivots are encountered on non-IEEE-754
architectures.

R

R is INTEGER
The twist index for the twisted factorization that is used
for the negcount.
