# NAG CL Interfacef08sac (dsygv)

## 1Purpose

f08sac computes all the eigenvalues and, optionally, the eigenvectors of a real generalized symmetric-definite eigenproblem, of the form
 $Az=λBz , ABz=λz or BAz=λz ,$
where $A$ and $B$ are symmetric and $B$ is also positive definite.

## 2Specification

 #include
 void f08sac (Nag_OrderType order, Integer itype, Nag_JobType job, Nag_UploType uplo, Integer n, double a[], Integer pda, double b[], Integer pdb, double w[], NagError *fail)
The function may be called by the names: f08sac, nag_lapackeig_dsygv or nag_dsygv.

## 3Description

f08sac first performs a Cholesky factorization of the matrix $B$ as $B={U}^{\mathrm{T}}U$, when ${\mathbf{uplo}}=\mathrm{Nag_Upper}$ or $B=L{L}^{\mathrm{T}}$, when ${\mathbf{uplo}}=\mathrm{Nag_Lower}$. The generalized problem is then reduced to a standard symmetric eigenvalue problem
 $Cx=λx ,$
which is solved for the eigenvalues and, optionally, the eigenvectors; the eigenvectors are then backtransformed to give the eigenvectors of the original problem.
For the problem $Az=\lambda Bz$, the eigenvectors are normalized so that the matrix of eigenvectors, $z$, satisfies
 $ZT A Z = Λ and ZT B Z = I ,$
where $\Lambda$ is the diagonal matrix whose diagonal elements are the eigenvalues. For the problem $ABz=\lambda z$ we correspondingly have
 $Z-1 A Z-T = Λ and ZT B Z = I ,$
and for $BAz=\lambda z$ we have
 $ZT A Z = Λ and ZT B-1 Z = I .$

## 5Arguments

1: $\mathbf{order}$Nag_OrderType Input
On entry: the order argument specifies the two-dimensional storage scheme being used, i.e., row-major ordering or column-major ordering. C language defined storage is specified by ${\mathbf{order}}=\mathrm{Nag_RowMajor}$.

NE_NO_LICENCE
Your licence key may have expired or may not have been installed correctly.
See Section 8 in the Introduction to the NAG Library CL Interface for further information.

## 7Accuracy

If $B$ is ill-conditioned with respect to inversion, then the error bounds for the computed eigenvalues and vectors may be large, although when the diagonal elements of $B$ differ widely in magnitude the eigenvalues and eigenvectors may be less sensitive than the condition of $B$ would suggest. See Section 4.10 of Anderson et al. (1999) for details of the error bounds.
The example program below illustrates the computation of approximate error bounds.

## 8Parallelism and Performance

f08sac is threaded by NAG for parallel execution in multithreaded implementations of the NAG Library.
f08sac 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 function. Please also consult the Users' Note for your implementation for any additional implementation-specific information.

The total number of floating-point operations is proportional to ${n}^{3}$.
The complex analogue of this function is f08snc.
