The routine may be called by the names f08qkf, nagf_lapackeig_dtrevc or its LAPACK name dtrevc.
f08qkf computes left and/or right eigenvectors of a real upper quasi-triangular matrix in canonical Schur form. Such a matrix arises from the Schur factorization of a real general matrix, as computed by f08pef, for example.
The right eigenvector , and the left eigenvector , corresponding to an eigenvalue , are defined by:
Note that even though is real, , and may be complex. If is an eigenvector corresponding to a complex eigenvalue , then the complex conjugate vector is the eigenvector corresponding to the complex conjugate eigenvalue .
The routine can compute the eigenvectors corresponding to selected eigenvalues, or it can compute all the eigenvectors. In the latter case the eigenvectors may optionally be pre-multiplied by an input matrix . Normally is an orthogonal matrix from the Schur factorization of a matrix as ; if is a (left or right) eigenvector of , then is an eigenvector of .
The eigenvectors are computed by forward or backward substitution. They are scaled so that, for a real eigenvector ,
and for a complex eigenvector,

6Error Indicators and Warnings
If , argument had an illegal value. An explanatory message is output, and execution of the program is terminated.
If is an exact right eigenvector, and is the corresponding computed eigenvector, then the angle between them is bounded as follows:
