3 Description

The real Schur factorization of A is given by
A = Z T ZT ,  
where Z, the matrix of Schur vectors, is orthogonal and T is the real Schur form. A matrix is in real Schur form if it is upper quasi-triangular with 1 by 1 and 2 by 2 blocks. 2 by 2 blocks will be standardized in the form
a b c a  
where bc<0. The eigenvalues of such a block are a±bc.
Optionally, f08paf also orders the eigenvalues on the diagonal of the real Schur form so that selected eigenvalues are at the top left. The leading columns of Z form an orthonormal basis for the invariant subspace corresponding to the selected eigenvalues.

5 Arguments

1: jobvs Character(1) Input
On entry: if jobvs='N', Schur vectors are not computed.
If jobvs='V', Schur vectors are computed.
Constraint: jobvs='N' or 'V'.
2: sort Character(1) Input
On entry: specifies whether or not to order the eigenvalues on the diagonal of the Schur form.
Eigenvalues are not ordered.
Eigenvalues are ordered (see select).
Constraint: sort='N' or 'S'.
3: select Logical Function, supplied by the user. External Procedure
If sort='S', select is used to select eigenvalues to sort to the top left of the Schur form.
If sort='N', select is not referenced and f08paf may be called with the dummy function f08paz.
An eigenvalue wrj+-1×wij is selected if selectwrj,wij is .TRUE.. If either one of a complex conjugate pair of eigenvalues is selected, then both are. Note that a selected complex eigenvalue may no longer satisfy selectwrj,wij=.TRUE. after ordering, since ordering may change the value of complex eigenvalues (especially if the eigenvalue is ill-conditioned); in this case info is set to n+2 (see info below).
The specification of select is:
Fortran Interface
Function select ( wr, wi)
Logical :: select
Real (Kind=nag_wp), Intent (In) :: wr, wi
C Header Interface
Nag_Boolean  select_ (const double *wr, const double *wi)
1: wr Real (Kind=nag_wp) Input
2: wi Real (Kind=nag_wp) Input
On entry: the real and imaginary parts of the eigenvalue.
select must either be a module subprogram USEd by, or declared as EXTERNAL in, the (sub)program from which f08paf is called. Arguments denoted as Input must not be changed by this procedure.
4: n Integer Input
On entry: n, the order of the matrix A.
Constraint: n0.
5: alda* Real (Kind=nag_wp) array Input/Output
Note: the second dimension of the array a must be at least max1,n.
On entry: the n by n matrix A.
On exit: a is overwritten by its real Schur form T.
6: lda Integer Input
On entry: the first dimension of the array a as declared in the (sub)program from which f08paf is called.
Constraint: ldamax1,n.
7: sdim Integer Output
On exit: if sort='N', sdim=0.
If sort='S', sdim= number of eigenvalues (after sorting) for which select is .TRUE.. (Complex conjugate pairs for which select is .TRUE. for either eigenvalue count as 2.)
8: wr* Real (Kind=nag_wp) array Output
Note: the dimension of the array wr must be at least max1,n.
On exit: see the description of wi.
9: wi* Real (Kind=nag_wp) array Output
Note: the dimension of the array wi must be at least max1,n.
On exit: wr and wi contain the real and imaginary parts, respectively, of the computed eigenvalues in the same order that they appear on the diagonal of the output Schur form T. Complex conjugate pairs of eigenvalues will appear consecutively with the eigenvalue having the positive imaginary part first.
10: vsldvs* Real (Kind=nag_wp) array Output
Note: the second dimension of the array vs must be at least max1,n if jobvs='V', and at least 1 otherwise.
On exit: if jobvs='V', vs contains the orthogonal matrix Z of Schur vectors.
If jobvs='N', vs is not referenced.
11: ldvs Integer Input
On entry: the first dimension of the array vs as declared in the (sub)program from which f08paf is called.
  • if jobvs='V', ldvs max1,n ;
  • otherwise ldvs1.
12: workmax1,lwork Real (Kind=nag_wp) array Workspace
On exit: if info=0, work1 contains the minimum value of lwork required for optimal performance.
13: lwork Integer Input
On entry: the dimension of the array work as declared in the (sub)program from which f08paf is called.
If 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, lwork must generally be larger than the minimum, say 3×n+nb×n , where nb is the optimal block size for f08nef
Constraint: lworkmax1,3×n.
14: bwork* Logical array Workspace
Note: the dimension of the array bwork must be at least 1 if sort='N', and at least max1,n otherwise.
If sort='N', bwork is not referenced.
15: info Integer Output
On exit: info=0 unless the routine detects an error (see Section 6).

6 Error Indicators and Warnings

If info=-i, argument i had an illegal value. An explanatory message is output, and execution of the program is terminated.
The QR algorithm failed to compute all the eigenvalues.
The eigenvalues could not be reordered because some eigenvalues were too close to separate (the problem is very ill-conditioned).
After reordering, roundoff changed values of some complex eigenvalues so that leading eigenvalues in the Schur form no longer satisfy select=.TRUE.. This could also be caused by underflow due to scaling.

7 Accuracy

The computed Schur factorization satisfies
A+E=ZT ZT ,  
E2 = Oε A2 ,  
and ε is the machine precision. See Section 4.8 of Anderson et al. (1999) for further details.

8 Parallelism and Performance

f08paf is threaded by NAG for parallel execution in multithreaded implementations of the NAG Library.
f08paf 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.

9 Further Comments

The total number of floating-point operations is proportional to n3.
The complex analogue of this routine is f08pnf.

10 Example

This example finds the Schur factorization of the matrix
A = 0.35 0.45 -0.14 -0.17 0.09 0.07 -0.54 0.35 -0.44 -0.33 -0.03 0.17 0.25 -0.32 -0.13 0.11 ,  
such that the real positive eigenvalues of A are the top left diagonal elements of the Schur form, T.
Note that the block size (NB) of 64 assumed in this example is not realistic for such a small problem, but should be suitable for large problems.
