F12AUF
Note: this routine uses optional parameters to define choices in the problem specification. If you wish to use default
settings for all of the optional parameters, then the option setting routine F12ARF need not be called.
If, however, you wish to reset some or all of the settings please refer to Section 11 in F12ARF for a detailed description of the specification of the optional parameters.
1 Purpose
F12AUF is the main solver routine in a suite of routines consisting of
F12ARF,
F12ATF and F12AUF. It must be called following an initial call to
F12ATF and following any calls to
F12ARF.
F12AUF returns approximations to selected eigenvalues, and (optionally) the corresponding eigenvectors, of a standard or generalized eigenvalue problem defined by complex banded nonHermitian matrices. The banded matrix must be stored using the LAPACK
storage format for complex banded nonHermitian matrices.

INTEGER 
KL, KU, LDAB, LDMB, NCONV, LDZ, LDV, ICOMM(140), IFAIL 
COMPLEX (KIND=nag_wp)

3 Description
The suite of routines is designed to calculate some of the eigenvalues, $\lambda $, (and optionally the corresponding eigenvectors, $x$) of a standard eigenvalue problem $Ax=\lambda x$, or of a generalized eigenvalue problem $Ax=\lambda Bx$ of order $n$, where $n$ is large and the coefficient matrices $A$ and $B$ are banded, complex and nonHermitian.
Following a call to the initialization routine
F12ATF, F12AUF returns the converged approximations to eigenvalues and (optionally) the corresponding approximate eigenvectors and/or a unitary basis for the associated approximate invariant subspace. The eigenvalues (and eigenvectors) are selected from those of a standard or generalized eigenvalue problem defined by complex banded nonHermitian matrices. There is negligible additional computational cost to obtain eigenvectors; a unitary basis is always computed, but there is an additional storage cost if both are requested.
The banded matrices
$A$ and
$B$ must be stored using the LAPACK column ordered storage format for banded nonHermitian matrices; please refer to
Section 3.3.4 in the F07 Chapter Introduction for details on this storage format.
F12AUF is based on the banded driver routines
znbdr1 to
znbdr4 from the ARPACK package, which uses the Implicitly Restarted Arnoldi iteration method. The method is described in
Lehoucq and Sorensen (1996) and
Lehoucq (2001) while its use within the ARPACK software is described in great detail in
Lehoucq et al. (1998). An evaluation of software for computing eigenvalues of sparse nonHermitian matrices is provided in
Lehoucq and Scott (1996). This suite of routines offers the same functionality as the ARPACK banded driver software for complex nonHermitian problems, but the interface design is quite different in order to make the option setting clearer and to combine the different drivers into a general purpose routine.
F12AUF, is a general purpose routine that must be called following initialization by
F12ATF. F12AUF uses options, set either by default or explicitly by calling
F12ARF, to return the converged approximations to selected eigenvalues and (optionally):
– 
the corresponding approximate eigenvectors; 
– 
a unitary basis for the associated approximate invariant subspace; 
– 
both.

On entry:
IFAIL must be set to
$0$,

Section 3.3 in the Essential Introduction for details.
For environments where it might be inappropriate to halt program execution when an error is detected, the value
$1\text{ or}1$ is recommended. If the output of error messages is undesirable, then the value
$1$ is recommended. Otherwise, if you are not familiar with this parameter, the recommended value is
$0$.
When the value $\mathbf{1}\text{ or}\mathbf{1}$ is used it is essential to test the value of IFAIL on exit.
On exit:
${\mathbf{IFAIL}}={\mathbf{0}}$ unless the routine detects an error or a warning has been flagged (see
Section 6).

8 Parallelism and Performance
F12AUF is threaded by NAG for parallel execution in multithreaded implementations of the NAG Library.
F12AUF makes calls to BLAS and/or LAPACK routines, which may be threaded within the vendor library used by this implementation. Consult the documentation for the vendor library for further information.
Please consult the
X06 Chapter Introduction for information on how to control and interrogate the OpenMP environment used within this routine. Please also consult the
