F12FGF
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 F12FDF need not be called.
If, however, you wish to reset some or all of the settings please refer to Section 11 in F12FDF for a detailed description of the specification of the optional parameters.
1 Purpose
F12FGF is the main solver routine in a suite of routines which includes
F12FDF and
F12FFF. F12FGF must be called following an initial call to
F12FFF and following any calls to
F12FDF.
F12FGF returns approximations to selected eigenvalues, and (optionally) the corresponding eigenvectors, of a standard or generalized eigenvalue problem defined by real banded symmetric matrices. The banded matrix must be stored using the LAPACK storage format for real banded nonsymmetric matrices.

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, real and symmetric.
Following a call to the initialization routine
F12FFF, F12FGF returns the converged approximations to eigenvalues and (optionally) the corresponding approximate eigenvectors and/or an orthonormal basis for the associated approximate invariant subspace. The eigenvalues (and eigenvectors) are selected from those of a standard or generalized eigenvalue problem defined by real banded symmetric matrices. There is negligible additional computational cost to obtain eigenvectors; an orthonormal 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 storage format for banded nonsymmetric matrices; please refer to
Section 3.3.2 in the F07 Chapter Introduction for details on this storage format.
F12FGF is based on the banded driver routines
dsbdr1 to
dsbdr6 from the ARPACK package, which uses the Implicitly Restarted Lanczos 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). This suite of routines offers the same functionality as the ARPACK banded driver software for real symmetric 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.
F12FGF, is a general purpose forward communication routine that must be called following initialization by
F12FFF. F12FGF uses options, set either by default or explicitly by calling
F12FDF, to return the converged approximations to selected eigenvalues and (optionally):
– 
the corresponding approximate eigenvectors; 
– 
an orthonormal basis for the associated approximate invariant subspace; 
– 
both.

 17: $\mathrm{IFAIL}$ – INTEGERInput/Output

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).
6 Error Indicators and Warnings
If on entry
${\mathbf{IFAIL}}={\mathbf{0}}$ or
${{\mathbf{1}}}$, explanatory error messages are output on the current error message unit (as defined by
X04AAF).
Errors or warnings detected by the routine:
 ${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=1$

On entry, ${\mathbf{KL}}<0$.
 ${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=2$

On entry, ${\mathbf{KU}}<0$.
 ${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=3$

On entry, ${\mathbf{LDAB}}<2\times {\mathbf{KL}}+{\mathbf{KU}}+1$.
 ${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=4$

${\mathbf{Iteration\; Limit}}<0$.
 ${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=5$

The options
Generalized and
Regular are incompatible.
 ${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=6$

Eigenvalues from
Both Ends of the spectrum were requested, but only one eigenvalue (
NEV) is requested.
 ${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=7$

The
Initial Residual was selected but the starting vector held in
RESID is zero.
 ${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=8$

On entry, ${\mathbf{LDZ}}<\mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,{\mathbf{N}}\right)$ or ${\mathbf{LDZ}}<1$ when no vectors are required.
 ${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=9$

On entry, the option ${\mathbf{Vectors}}=\text{Select}$ was selected, but this is not yet implemented.
 ${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=10$

The number of eigenvalues found to sufficient accuracy is zero.
 ${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=11$

Could not build a Lanczos factorization. Consider changing
NCV or
NEV in the initialization routine (see
Section 5 in F12FAF for details of these parameters).
 ${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=12$

Unexpected error in internal call to compute eigenvalues and corresponding error bounds of the current symmetric tridiagonal matrix. Please contact
NAG.
 ${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=13$

Unexpected error during calculation of a real Schur form: there was a failure to compute all the converged eigenvalues. Please contact
NAG.
 ${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=14$

Failure during internal factorization of real banded matrix. Please contact
NAG.
 ${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=15$

Failure during internal solution of real banded system. Please contact

NCONV returns the number of converged values.
 ${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=17$

No shifts could be applied during a cycle of the implicitly restarted Lanczos iteration. One possibility is to increase the size of
NCV relative to
NEV (see
Section 5 in F12FFF for details of these parameters).
 ${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=18$

An unexpected error has occurred. Please contact
NAG.
 ${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=19$

The routine was unable to dynamically allocate sufficient internal workspace. Please contact
NAG.
 ${\mathbf{IFAIL}}=99$

7 Accuracy
The relative accuracy of a Ritz value,
$\lambda $, is considered acceptable if its Ritz estimate
$\le {\mathbf{Tolerance}}\times \left\lambda \right$. The default
Tolerance used is the
machine precision given by
X02AJF.
8 Parallelism and Performance
F12FGF is threaded by NAG for parallel execution in multithreaded implementations of the NAG Library.
F12FGF 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
Users' Note for your implementation for any additional implementationspecific information.
None.
10 Example
This example solves $Ax=\lambda x$ in regular mode, where $A$ is obtained from the standard central difference discretization of the twodimensional convectiondiffusion operator $\frac{{d}^{2}u}{d{x}^{2}}+\frac{{d}^{2}u}{d{y}^{2}}=\rho \frac{du}{dx}$ on the unit square with zero Dirichlet boundary conditions. $A$ is stored in LAPACK banded storage format.
