SYNOPSIS

SUBROUTINE PDLABAD( ICTXT, SMALL, LARGE )
    INTEGER ICTXT
    DOUBLE PRECISION LARGE, SMALL

PURPOSE

PDLABAD takes as input the values computed by PDLAMCH for underflow and overflow, and returns the square root of each of these values if the log of LARGE is sufficiently large. This subroutine is intended to identify machines with a large exponent range, such as the Crays, and redefine the underflow and overflow limits to be the square roots of the values computed by PDLAMCH. This subroutine is needed because PDLAMCH does not compensate for poor arithmetic in the upper half of the exponent range, as is found on a Cray.

In addition, this routine performs a global minimization and maximi- zation on these values, to support heterogeneous computing networks.

ARGUMENTS

ICTXT (global input) INTEGER
  The BLACS context handle in which the computation takes place.
SMALL (local input/local output) DOUBLE PRECISION
  On entry, the underflow threshold as computed by PDLAMCH. On exit, if LOG10(LARGE) is sufficiently large, the square root of SMALL, otherwise unchanged.
LARGE (local input/local output) DOUBLE PRECISION
  On entry, the overflow threshold as computed by PDLAMCH. On exit, if LOG10(LARGE) is sufficiently large, the square root of LARGE, otherwise unchanged.
