NAME
SDISNA - compute the reciprocal condition numbers for the eigenvectors of a real symmetric or complex Hermitian matrix or for the left or right singular vectors of a general m-by-n matrix
SYNOPSIS
SUBROUTINE SDISNA( JOB, M, N, D, SEP, INFO ) CHARACTER JOB INTEGER INFO, M, N REAL D( * ), SEP( * )
PURPOSE
SDISNA computes the reciprocal condition numbers for the eigenvectors of a real symmetric or complex Hermitian matrix or for the left or right singular vectors of a general m-by-n matrix. The reciprocal condition number is the 'gap' between the corresponding eigenvalue or singular value and the nearest other one. The bound on the error, measured by angle in radians, in the I-th computed vector is given by SLAMCH( 'E' ) * ( ANORM / SEP( I ) ) where ANORM = 2-norm(A) = max( abs( D(j) ) ). SEP(I) is not allowed to be smaller than SLAMCH( 'E' )*ANORM in order to limit the size of the error bound. SDISNA may also be used to compute error bounds for eigenvectors of the generalized symmetric definite eigenproblem.
ARGUMENTS
JOB (input) CHARACTER*1 Specifies for which problem the reciprocal condition numbers should be computed: = 'E': the eigenvectors of a symmetric/Hermitian matrix; = 'L': the left singular vectors of a general matrix; = 'R': the right singular vectors of a general matrix. M (input) INTEGER The number of rows of the matrix. M >= 0. N (input) INTEGER If JOB = 'L' or 'R', the number of columns of the matrix, in which case N >= 0. Ignored if JOB = 'E'. D (input) REAL array, dimension (M) if JOB = 'E' dimension (min(M,N)) if JOB = 'L' or 'R' The eigenvalues (if JOB = 'E') or singular values (if JOB = order. If singular values, they must be non-negative. SEP (output) REAL array, dimension (M) if JOB = 'E' dimension (min(M,N)) if JOB = 'L' or 'R' The reciprocal condition numbers of the vectors. INFO (output) INTEGER = 0: successful exit. < 0: if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value. LAPACK version 3.0 15 June 2000 SDISNA(l)
