jobzstr, length 1

Indicates whether eigenvectors are computed.

Only eigenvalues are computed.

Eigenvalues and eigenvectors are computed.

If , the lower triangular part of is stored.

afloat, array-like, shape

The symmetric matrix .

aNone or float, ndarray, shape

If , contains the orthonormal eigenvectors of the matrix .

wfloat, ndarray, shape

(errno )

The algorithm failed to converge; off-diagonal elements of an intermediate tridiagonal form did not converge to zero.


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.
