Notes

Balancing may reduce the -norm of the matrices and improve the accuracy of the computed eigenvalues and eigenvectors in the complex generalized eigenvalue problem

zggbal is usually the first step in the solution of the above generalized eigenvalue problem. Balancing is optional but it is highly recommended.

The term ‘balancing’ covers two steps, each of which involves similarity transformations on and . The function can perform either or both of these steps. Both steps are optional.

1. The function first attempts to permute and to block upper triangular form by a similarity transformation:

where is a permutation matrix, , , and are upper triangular. Then the diagonal elements of the matrix pairs and are generalized eigenvalues of . The rest of the generalized eigenvalues are given by the matrix pair which are in rows and columns to . Subsequent operations to compute the generalized eigenvalues of need only be applied to the matrix pair ; this can save a significant amount of work if and . If no suitable permutation exists (as is often the case), the function sets and .

2. The function applies a diagonal similarity transformation to , to make the rows and columns of as close in norm as possible:

This transformation usually improves the accuracy of computed generalized eigenvalues and eigenvectors.
