## 3Description

f08fgf is intended to be used after a call to f08fef, which reduces a real symmetric matrix $A$ to symmetric tridiagonal form $T$ by an orthogonal similarity transformation: $A=QT{Q}^{\mathrm{T}}$. f08fef represents the orthogonal matrix $Q$ as a product of elementary reflectors.
This routine may be used to form one of the matrix products
 $QC , QTC , CQ ​ or ​ CQT ,$
overwriting the result on $C$ (which may be any real rectangular matrix).
A common application of this routine is to transform a matrix $Z$ of eigenvectors of $T$ to the matrix $\mathit{QZ}$ of eigenvectors of $A$.

## 5Arguments

1: $\mathbf{side}$Character(1) Input

Constraint: ${\mathbf{trans}}=\text{'N'}$ or $\text{'T'}$.
4: $\mathbf{m}$Integer Input
On entry: $m$, the number of rows of the matrix $C$; $m$ is also the order of $Q$ if ${\mathbf{side}}=\text{'L'}$.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{m}}\ge 0$.
5: $\mathbf{n}$Integer Input
On entry: $n$, the number of columns of the matrix $C$; $n$ is also the order of $Q$ if ${\mathbf{side}}=\text{'R'}$.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{n}}\ge 0$.
6: $\mathbf{a}\left({\mathbf{lda}},*\right)$Real (Kind=nag_wp) array Input
Note: the second dimension of the array a must be at least $\mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,{\mathbf{m}}\right)$ if ${\mathbf{side}}=\text{'L'}$ and at least $\mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,{\mathbf{n}}\right)$ if ${\mathbf{side}}=\text{'R'}$.
On entry: details of the vectors which define the elementary reflectors, as returned by f08fef.
7: $\mathbf{lda}$Integer Input
On entry: the first dimension of the array a as declared in the (sub)program from which f08fgf is called.
Constraints:
• if ${\mathbf{side}}=\text{'L'}$, ${\mathbf{lda}}\ge \mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,{\mathbf{m}}\right)$;
• if ${\mathbf{side}}=\text{'R'}$, ${\mathbf{lda}}\ge \mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,{\mathbf{n}}\right)$.
8: $\mathbf{tau}\left(*\right)$Real (Kind=nag_wp) array Input
Note: the dimension of the array tau must be at least $\mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,{\mathbf{m}}-1\right)$ if ${\mathbf{side}}=\text{'L'}$ and at least $\mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,{\mathbf{n}}-1\right)$ if ${\mathbf{side}}=\text{'R'}$.
On entry: further details of the elementary reflectors, as returned by f08fef.
9: $\mathbf{c}\left({\mathbf{ldc}},*\right)$Real (Kind=nag_wp) array Input/Output
Note: the second dimension of the array c must be at least $\mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,{\mathbf{n}}\right)$.
On entry: the $m$ by $n$ matrix $C$.
On exit: c is overwritten by $QC$ or ${Q}^{\mathrm{T}}C$ or $CQ$ or $C{Q}^{\mathrm{T}}$ as specified by side and trans.
10: $\mathbf{ldc}$Integer Input
On entry: the first dimension of the array c as declared in the (sub)program from which f08fgf is called.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{ldc}}\ge \mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,{\mathbf{m}}\right)$.
11: $\mathbf{work}\left(\mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,{\mathbf{lwork}}\right)\right)$Real (Kind=nag_wp) array Workspace
On exit: if ${\mathbf{info}}={\mathbf{0}}$, ${\mathbf{work}}\left(1\right)$ contains the minimum value of lwork required for optimal performance.
12: $\mathbf{lwork}$Integer Input
On entry: the dimension of the array work as declared in the (sub)program from which f08fgf is called.
If ${\mathbf{lwork}}=-1$, a workspace query is assumed; the routine only calculates the optimal size of the work array, returns this value as the first entry of the work array, and no error message related to lwork is issued.
Suggested value: for optimal performance, ${\mathbf{lwork}}\ge {\mathbf{n}}×\mathit{nb}$ if ${\mathbf{side}}=\text{'L'}$ and at least ${\mathbf{m}}×\mathit{nb}$ if ${\mathbf{side}}=\text{'R'}$, where $\mathit{nb}$ is the optimal block size.
Constraints:
• if ${\mathbf{side}}=\text{'L'}$, ${\mathbf{lwork}}\ge \mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,{\mathbf{n}}\right)$ or ${\mathbf{lwork}}=-1$;
• if ${\mathbf{side}}=\text{'R'}$, ${\mathbf{lwork}}\ge \mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,{\mathbf{m}}\right)$ or ${\mathbf{lwork}}=-1$.
13: $\mathbf{info}$Integer Output
On exit: ${\mathbf{info}}=0$ unless the routine detects an error (see Section 6).

## 6Error Indicators and Warnings

${\mathbf{info}}<0$
If ${\mathbf{info}}=-i$, argument $i$ had an illegal value. An explanatory message is output, and execution of the program is terminated.

## 7Accuracy

The computed result differs from the exact result by a matrix $E$ such that
 $E2 = Oε C2 ,$
where $\epsilon$ is the machine precision.

## 8Parallelism and Performance

f08fgf is threaded by NAG for parallel execution in multithreaded implementations of the NAG Library.
f08fgf 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 implementation-specific information.

The total number of floating-point operations is approximately $2{m}^{2}n$ if ${\mathbf{side}}=\text{'L'}$ and $2m{n}^{2}$ if ${\mathbf{side}}=\text{'R'}$.
The complex analogue of this routine is f08fuf.

## 10Example

This example computes the two smallest eigenvalues, and the associated eigenvectors, of the matrix $A$, where
 $A = 2.07 3.87 4.20 -1.15 3.87 -0.21 1.87 0.63 4.20 1.87 1.15 2.06 -1.15 0.63 2.06 -1.81 .$
Here $A$ is symmetric and must first be reduced to tridiagonal form $T$ by f08fef. The program then calls f08jjf to compute the requested eigenvalues and f08jkf to compute the associated eigenvectors of $T$. Finally f08fgf is called to transform the eigenvectors to those of $A$.
