## 3  Description

F08YXF (ZTGEVC) computes some or all of the right and/or left generalized eigenvectors of the matrix pair $\left(A,B\right)$ which is assumed to be in upper triangular form. If the matrix pair $\left(A,B\right)$ is not upper triangular then the routine F08XSF (ZHGEQZ) should be called before invoking F08YXF (ZTGEVC).
The right generalized eigenvector $x$ and the left generalized eigenvector $y$ of $\left(A,B\right)$ corresponding to a generalized eigenvalue $\lambda$ are defined by
 $A-λBx=0$
and
 $yH A-λ B=0.$
If a generalized eigenvalue is determined as $0/0$, which is due to zero diagonal elements at the same locations in both $A$ and $B$, a unit vector is returned as the corresponding eigenvector.
Note that the generalized eigenvalues are computed using F08XSF (ZHGEQZ) but F08YXF (ZTGEVC) does not explicitly require the generalized eigenvalues to compute eigenvectors. The ordering of the eigenvectors is based on the ordering of the eigenvalues as computed by F08YXF (ZTGEVC).
If all eigenvectors are requested, the routine may either return the matrices $X$ and/or $Y$ of right or left eigenvectors of $\left(A,B\right)$, or the products $ZX$ and/or $QY$, where $Z$ and $Q$ are two matrices supplied by you. Usually, $Q$ and $Z$ are chosen as the unitary matrices returned by F08XSF (ZHGEQZ). Equivalently, $Q$ and $Z$ are the left and right Schur vectors of the matrix pair supplied to F08XSF (ZHGEQZ). In that case, $QY$ and $ZX$ are the left and right generalized eigenvectors, respectively, of the matrix pair supplied to F08XSF (ZHGEQZ).

Errors or warnings detected by the routine:
${\mathbf{INFO}}<0$
If ${\mathbf{INFO}}=-i$, argument $i$ had an illegal value. An explanatory message is output, and execution of the program is terminated.

## 7  Accuracy

It is beyond the scope of this manual to summarise the accuracy of the solution of the generalized eigenvalue problem. Interested readers should consult Section 4.11 of the LAPACK Users' Guide (see Anderson et al. (1999)) and Chapter 6 of Stewart and Sun (1990).

F08YXF (ZTGEVC) is the sixth step in the solution of the complex generalized eigenvalue problem and is usually called after F08XSF (ZHGEQZ).
The real analogue of this routine is F08YKF (DTGEVC).

## 9  Example

This example computes the $\alpha$ and $\beta$ parameters, which defines the generalized eigenvalues and the corresponding left and right eigenvectors, of the matrix pair $\left(A,B\right)$ given by
 $A = 1.0+3.0i 1.0+4.0i 1.0+5.0i 1.0+6.0i 2.0+2.0i 4.0+3.0i 8.0+4.0i 16.0+5.0i 3.0+1.0i 9.0+2.0i 27.0+3.0i 81.0+4.0i 4.0+0.0i 16.0+1.0i 64.0+2.0i 256.0+3.0i$
and
 $B = 1.0+0.0i 2.0+1.0i 3.0+2.0i 4.0+3.0i 1.0+1.0i 4.0+2.0i 9.0+3.0i 16.0+4.0i 1.0+2.0i 8.0+3.0i 27.0+4.0i 64.0+5.0i 1.0+3.0i 16.0+4.0i 81.0+5.0i 256.0+6.0i .$
To compute generalized eigenvalues, it is required to call five routines: F08WVF (ZGGBAL) to balance the matrix, F08ASF (ZGEQRF) to perform the $QR$ factorization of $B$, F08AUF (ZUNMQR) to apply $Q$ to $A$, F08WSF (ZGGHRD) to reduce the matrix pair to the generalized Hessenberg form and F08XSF (ZHGEQZ) to compute the eigenvalues via the $QZ$ algorithm.
The computation of generalized eigenvectors is done by calling F08YXF (ZTGEVC) to compute the eigenvectors of the balanced matrix pair. The routine F08WWF (ZGGBAK) is called to backward transform the eigenvectors to the user-supplied matrix pair. If both left and right eigenvectors are required then F08WWF (ZGGBAK) must be called twice.
