The routine may be called by the names f08gaf, nagf_lapackeig_dspev or its LAPACK name dspev.
The symmetric matrix is first reduced to tridiagonal form, using orthogonal similarity transformations, and then the algorithm is applied to the tridiagonal matrix to compute the eigenvalues and (optionally) the eigenvectors.
