SYNOPSIS

SUBROUTINE PCHEEV( JOBZ, UPLO, N, A, IA, JA, DESCA, W, Z, IZ, JZ, DESCZ, WORK, LWORK, RWORK, LRWORK, INFO )
    CHARACTER JOBZ, UPLO
    INTEGER IA, INFO, IZ, JA, JZ, LRWORK, LWORK, N
    INTEGER DESCA( * ), DESCZ( * )
    REAL RWORK( * ), W( * )
    COMPLEX A( * ), WORK( * ), Z( * )

PURPOSE

PCHEEV computes selected eigenvalues and, optionally, eigenvectors of a real symmetric matrix A by calling the recommended sequence of ScaLAPACK routines. In its present form, PCHEEV assumes a homogeneous system and makes only spot checks of the consistency of the eigenvalues across the different processes. Because of this, it is possible that a heterogeneous system may return incorrect results without any error messages.

Notes
=====
A description vector is associated with each 2D block-cyclicly dis- tributed matrix. This vector stores the information required to establish the mapping between a matrix entry and its corresponding process and memory location.

In the following comments, the character _ should be read as "of the distributed matrix". Let A be a generic term for any 2D block cyclicly distributed matrix. Its description vector is DESCA:

NOTATION STORED IN EXPLANATION
--------------- -------------- -------------------------------------- DTYPE_A(global) DESCA( DTYPE_) The descriptor type.
CTXT_A (global) DESCA( CTXT_ ) The BLACS context handle, indicating
the BLACS process grid A is distribu-
ted over. The context itself is glo-
bal, but the handle (the integer
value) may vary.
M_A (global) DESCA( M_ ) The number of rows in the distributed
matrix A.
N_A (global) DESCA( N_ ) The number of columns in the distri-
buted matrix A.
MB_A (global) DESCA( MB_ ) The blocking factor used to distribute
the rows of A.
NB_A (global) DESCA( NB_ ) The blocking factor used to distribute
the columns of A.
RSRC_A (global) DESCA( RSRC_ ) The process row over which the first
row of the matrix A is distributed. CSRC_A (global) DESCA( CSRC_ ) The process column over which the
first column of A is distributed. LLD_A (local) DESCA( LLD_ ) The leading dimension of the local
array storing the local blocks of the
distributed matrix A.
LLD_A >= MAX(1,LOCr(M_A)).

Let K be the number of rows or columns of a distributed matrix, and assume that its process grid has dimension p x q.
LOCr( K ) denotes the number of elements of K that a process would receive if K were distributed over the p processes of its process column.
Similarly, LOCc( K ) denotes the number of elements of K that a process would receive if K were distributed over the q processes of its process row.
The values of LOCr() and LOCc() may be determined via a call to the ScaLAPACK tool function, NUMROC:
LOCr( M ) = NUMROC( M, MB_A, MYROW, RSRC_A, NPROW ),
LOCc( N ) = NUMROC( N, NB_A, MYCOL, CSRC_A, NPCOL ).

ARGUMENTS

NP = the number of rows local to a given process. NQ = the number of columns local to a given process.
JOBZ (global input) CHARACTER*1
  Specifies whether or not to compute the eigenvectors:
= ’N’: Compute eigenvalues only.
= ’V’: Compute eigenvalues and eigenvectors.
UPLO (global input) CHARACTER*1
  Specifies whether the upper or lower triangular part of the symmetric matrix A is stored:
= ’U’: Upper triangular
= ’L’: Lower triangular
N (global input) INTEGER
  The number of rows and columns of the matrix A. N >= 0.
A (local input/workspace) block cyclic COMPLEX array,
  global dimension (N, N), local dimension ( LLD_A, LOCc(JA+N-1) )

On entry, the symmetric matrix A. If UPLO = ’U’, only the upper triangular part of A is used to define the elements of the symmetric matrix. If UPLO = ’L’, only the lower triangular part of A is used to define the elements of the symmetric matrix.

On exit, the lower triangle (if UPLO=’L’) or the upper triangle (if UPLO=’U’) of A, including the diagonal, is destroyed.

IA (global input) INTEGER
  A’s global row index, which points to the beginning of the submatrix which is to be operated on.
JA (global input) INTEGER
  A’s global column index, which points to the beginning of the submatrix which is to be operated on.
DESCA (global and local input) INTEGER array of dimension DLEN_.
  The array descriptor for the distributed matrix A. If DESCA( CTXT_ ) is incorrect, PCHEEV cannot guarantee correct error reporting.
W (global output) REAL array, dimension (N)
  On normal exit, the first M entries contain the selected eigenvalues in ascending order.
Z (local output) COMPLEX array,
  global dimension (N, N), local dimension (LLD_Z, LOCc(JZ+N-1)) If JOBZ = ’V’, then on normal exit the first M columns of Z contain the orthonormal eigenvectors of the matrix corresponding to the selected eigenvalues. If JOBZ = ’N’, then Z is not referenced.
IZ (global input) INTEGER
  Z’s global row index, which points to the beginning of the submatrix which is to be operated on.
JZ (global input) INTEGER
  Z’s global column index, which points to the beginning of the submatrix which is to be operated on.
DESCZ (global and local input) INTEGER array of dimension DLEN_.
  The array descriptor for the distributed matrix Z. DESCZ( CTXT_ ) must equal DESCA( CTXT_ )
WORK (local workspace/output) COMPLEX array,
  dimension (LWORK) On output, WORK(1) returns the workspace needed to guarantee completion. If the input parameters are incorrect, WORK(1) may also be incorrect.

If JOBZ=’N’ WORK(1) = minimal workspace for eigenvalues only. If JOBZ=’V’ WORK(1) = minimal workspace required to generate all the eigenvectors.

LWORK (local input) INTEGER
  See below for definitions of variables used to define LWORK. If no eigenvectors are requested (JOBZ = ’N’) then LWORK >= MAX( NB*( NP0+1 ), 3 ) +3*N If eigenvectors are requested (JOBZ = ’V’ ) then the amount of workspace required: LWORK >= (NP0 + NQ0 + NB)*NB + 3*N + N^2

Variable definitions: NB = DESCA( MB_ ) = DESCA( NB_ ) = DESCZ( MB_ ) = DESCZ( NB_ ) NP0 = NUMROC( NN, NB, 0, 0, NPROW ) NQ0 = NUMROC( MAX( N, NB, 2 ), NB, 0, 0, NPCOL )

If LWORK = -1, the LWORK is global input and a workspace query is assumed; the routine only calculates the minimum size for the WORK array. The required workspace is returned as the first element of WORK and no error message is issued by PXERBLA.

RWORK (local workspace/output) COMPLEX array,
  dimension (LRWORK) On output RWORK(1) returns the REAL workspace needed to guarantee completion. If the input parameters are incorrect, RWORK(1) may also be incorrect.
LRWORK (local input) INTEGER
  Size of RWORK array. If eigenvectors are desired (JOBZ = ’V’) then LRWORK >= 2*N + 2*N-2 If eigenvectors are not desired (JOBZ = ’N’) then LRWORK >= 2*N

If LRWORK = -1, the LRWORK is global input and a workspace query is assumed; the routine only calculates the minimum size for the RWORK array. The required workspace is returned as the first element of RWORK and no error message is issued by PXERBLA.

INFO (global output) INTEGER
  = 0: successful exit
< 0: If the i-th argument is an array and the j-entry had an illegal value, then INFO = -(i*100+j), if the i-th argument is a scalar and had an illegal value, then INFO = -i. > 0: If INFO = 1 through N, the i(th) eigenvalue did not converge in CSTEQR2 after a total of 30*N iterations. If INFO = N+1, then PCHEEV has detected heterogeneity by finding that eigenvalues were not identical across the process grid. In this case, the accuracy of the results from PCHEEV cannot be guaranteed.

Alignment requirements ======================

The distributed submatrices A(IA:*, JA:*) and C(IC:IC+M-1,JC:JC+N-1) must verify some alignment properties, namely the following expressions should be true:

( MB_A.EQ.NB_A.EQ.MB_Z .AND. IROFFA.EQ.IROFFZ .AND. IROFFA.EQ.0 .AND. IAROW.EQ.IZROW ) where IROFFA = MOD( IA-1, MB_A ) and ICOFFA = MOD( JA-1, NB_A ).
