NAME
ZLARNV - return a vector of n random complex numbers from a
uniform or normal distribution

SYNOPSIS
SUBROUTINE ZLARNV( IDIST, ISEED, N, X )

INTEGER        IDIST, N

INTEGER        ISEED( 4 )

COMPLEX*16     X( * )

PURPOSE
ZLARNV returns a vector of n random complex numbers from a
uniform or normal distribution.

ARGUMENTS
IDIST   (input) INTEGER
Specifies the distribution of the random numbers:
= 1:  real and imaginary parts each uniform (0,1)
= 2:  real and imaginary parts each uniform (-1,1)
= 3:  real and imaginary parts each normal (0,1)
= 4:  uniformly distributed on the disc abs(z) < 1
= 5:  uniformly distributed on the circle abs(z) = 1

ISEED   (input/output) INTEGER array, dimension (4)
On entry, the seed of the random number generator;
the array elements must be between 0 and 4095, and
ISEED(4) must be odd.  On exit, the seed is updated.

N       (input) INTEGER
The number of random numbers to be generated.

X       (output) COMPLEX*16 array, dimension (N)
The generated random numbers.

FURTHER DETAILS
This routine calls the auxiliary routine DLARUV to generate
random real numbers from a uniform (0,1) distribution, in
batches of up to 128 using vectorizable code. The Box-Muller
method is used to transform numbers from a uniform to a nor-
mal distribution.
