NAME CGGBAL - balance a pair of general complex matrices (A,B) for the generalized eigenvalue problem A*X = lambda*B*X SYNOPSIS SUBROUTINE CGGBAL( JOB, N, A, LDA, B, LDB, ILO, IHI, LSCALE, RSCALE, WORK, INFO ) CHARACTER JOB INTEGER IHI, ILO, INFO, LDA, LDB, N REAL LSCALE( * ), RSCALE( * ), WORK( * ) COMPLEX A( LDA, * ), B( LDB, * ) PURPOSE CGGBAL balances a pair of general complex matrices (A,B) for the generalized eigenvalue problem A*X = lambda*B*X. This involves, first, permuting A and B by similarity transforma- tions to isolate eigenvalues in the first 1 to ILO-1 and last IHI+1 to N elements on the diagonal; and second, apply- ing a diagonal similarity transformation to rows and columns ILO to IHI to make the rows and columns as close in norm as possible. Both steps are optional. Balancing may reduce the 1-norm of the matrices, and improve the accuracy of the computed eigenvalues and/or eigenvec- tors. ARGUMENTS JOB (input) CHARACTER*1 Specifies the operations to be performed on A and B: = 'N': none: simply set ILO = 1, IHI = N, LSCALE(I) = 1.0 and RSCALE(I) = 1.0 for i=1,...,N; = 'P': permute only; = 'S': scale only; = 'B': both permute and scale. N (input) INTEGER The order of matrices A and B. N >= 0. A (input/output) COMPLEX array, dimension (LDA,N) On entry, the input matrix A. On exit, A is overwritten by the balanced matrix. LDA (input) INTEGER The leading dimension of the matrix A. LDA >= max(1,N). B (input/output) COMPLEX array, dimension (LDB,N) On entry, the input matrix B. On exit, B is overwritten by the balanced matrix. LDB (input) INTEGER The leading dimension of the matrix B. LDB >= max(1,N). ILO (output) INTEGER IHI (output) INTEGER ILO and IHI are set to integers such that on exit A(i,j) = 0 and B(i,j) = 0 if i > j and j = 1,...,ILO-1 or i = IHI+1,...,N. If JOB = 'N' or 'S', ILO = 1 and IHI = N. LSCALE (output) REAL array, dimension (N) Details of the permutations and scaling factors applied to the left side of A and B. If P(j) is the index of the row interchanged with row j, and D(j) is the scaling factor applied to row j, then LSCALE(j) = P(j) for J = 1,...,ILO-1 = D(j) for J = ILO,...,IHI = P(j) for J = IHI+1,...,N. The order in which the interchanges are made is N to IHI+1, then 1 to ILO-1. RSCALE (output) REAL array, dimension (N) Details of the permutations and scaling factors applied to the right side of A and B. If P(j) is the index of the row interchanged with row j, and D(j) is the scaling factor applied to row j, then RSCALE(j) = P(j) for J = 1,...,ILO-1 = D(j) for J = ILO,...,IHI = P(j) for J = IHI+1,...,N. The order in which the interchanges are made is N to IHI+1, then 1 to ILO-1. WORK (workspace) REAL array, dimension (6*N) INFO (output) INTEGER = 0: successful exit. < 0: if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value. FURTHER DETAILS See R.C.
