Notes
=====
Each global data object is described by an associated description
vector. This vector stores the information required to establish
the mapping between an object element and its corresponding process
and memory location.
Let A be a generic term for any 2D block cyclicly distributed array.
Such a global array has an associated description vector DESCA.
In the following comments, the character _ should be read as
"of the global array".
NOTATION STORED IN EXPLANATION
  
DTYPE_A(global) DESCA( DTYPE_ )The descriptor type. In this case,
DTYPE_A = 1.
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 global
array A.
N_A (global) DESCA( N_ ) The number of columns in the global
array A.
MB_A (global) DESCA( MB_ ) The blocking factor used to distribute
the rows of the array.
NB_A (global) DESCA( NB_ ) The blocking factor used to distribute
the columns of the array.
RSRC_A (global) DESCA( RSRC_ ) The process row over which the first
row of the array A is distributed.
CSRC_A (global) DESCA( CSRC_ ) The process column over which the
first column of the array A is
distributed.
LLD_A (local) DESCA( LLD_ ) The leading dimension of the local
array. 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 ).
An upper bound for these quantities may be computed by:
LOCr( M ) <= ceil( ceil(M/MB_A)/NPROW )*MB_A
LOCc( N ) <= ceil( ceil(N/NB_A)/NPCOL )*NB_A
ARGUMENTS
 UPLO (global input) CHARACTER

Specifies whether the upper or lower triangular part of the
symmetric matrix sub( A ) is stored:
= 'U': Upper triangular
= 'L': Lower triangular  N (global input) INTEGER
 The number of rows and columns to be operated on, i.e. the order of the distributed submatrix sub( A ). N >= 0.
 A (local input/local output) REAL pointer into the
 local memory to an array of dimension (LLD_A,LOCc(JA+N1)). On entry, this array contains the local pieces of the symmetric distributed matrix sub( A ). If UPLO = 'U', the leading NbyN upper triangular part of sub( A ) contains the upper triangular part of the matrix, and its strictly lower triangular part is not referenced. If UPLO = 'L', the leading NbyN lower triangular part of sub( A ) contains the lower triangular part of the matrix, and its strictly upper triangular part is not referenced. On exit, if UPLO = 'U', the diagonal and first superdiagonal of sub( A ) are over written by the corresponding elements of the tridiagonal matrix T, and the elements above the first superdiagonal, with the array TAU, represent the orthogonal matrix Q as a product of elementary reflectors; if UPLO = 'L', the diagonal and first subdiagonal of sub( A ) are overwritten by the corresponding elements of the tridiagonal matrix T, and the elements below the first subdiagonal, with the array TAU, represent the orthogonal matrix Q as a product of elementary reflectors. See Further Details. IA (global input) INTEGER The row index in the global array A indicating the first row of sub( A ).
 JA (global input) INTEGER
 The column index in the global array A indicating the first column of sub( A ).
 DESCA (global and local input) INTEGER array of dimension DLEN_.
 The array descriptor for the distributed matrix A.
 D (local output) REAL array, dimension LOCc(JA+N1)
 The diagonal elements of the tridiagonal matrix T: D(i) = A(i,i). D is tied to the distributed matrix A.
 E (local output) REAL array, dimension LOCc(JA+N1)
 if UPLO = 'U', LOCc(JA+N2) otherwise. The offdiagonal elements of the tridiagonal matrix T: E(i) = A(i,i+1) if UPLO = 'U', E(i) = A(i+1,i) if UPLO = 'L'. E is tied to the distributed matrix A.
 TAU (local output) REAL, array, dimension
 LOCc(JA+N1). This array contains the scalar factors TAU of the elementary reflectors. TAU is tied to the distributed matrix A.
 WORK (local workspace/local output) REAL array,
 dimension (LWORK) On exit, WORK( 1 ) returns the minimal and optimal LWORK.
 LWORK (local or global input) INTEGER

The dimension of the array WORK.
LWORK is local input and must be at least
LWORK >= MAX( NB * ( NP +1 ), 3 * NB )
where NB = MB_A = NB_A, NP = NUMROC( N, NB, MYROW, IAROW, NPROW ), IAROW = INDXG2P( IA, NB, MYROW, RSRC_A, NPROW ).
INDXG2P and NUMROC are ScaLAPACK tool functions; MYROW, MYCOL, NPROW and NPCOL can be determined by calling the subroutine BLACS_GRIDINFO.
If LWORK = 1, then LWORK is global input and a workspace query is assumed; the routine only calculates the minimum and optimal size for all work arrays. Each of these values is returned in the first entry of the corresponding work array, and no error message is issued by PXERBLA.
 INFO (global output) INTEGER

= 0: successful exit
< 0: If the ith argument is an array and the jentry had an illegal value, then INFO = (i*100+j), if the ith argument is a scalar and had an illegal value, then INFO = i.
FURTHER DETAILS
If UPLO = 'U', the matrix Q is represented as a product of elementary reflectors
Each H(i) has the form
H(i) = I  tau * v * v'
where tau is a real scalar, and v is a real vector with
v(i+1:n) = 0 and v(i) = 1; v(1:i1) is stored on exit in
A(ia:ia+i2,ja+i), and tau in TAU(ja+i1).
If UPLO = 'L', the matrix Q is represented as a product of elementary
reflectors
Each H(i) has the form
H(i) = I  tau * v * v'
where tau is a real scalar, and v is a real vector with
v(1:i) = 0 and v(i+1) = 1; v(i+2:n) is stored on exit in
A(ia+i+1:ia+n1,ja+i1), and tau in TAU(ja+i1).
The contents of sub( A ) on exit are illustrated by the following
examples with n = 5:
if UPLO = 'U': if UPLO = 'L':
( d e v2 v3 v4 ) ( d )
( d e v3 v4 ) ( e d )
( d e v4 ) ( v1 e d )
( d e ) ( v1 v2 e d )
( d ) ( v1 v2 v3 e d )
where d and e denote diagonal and offdiagonal elements of T, and vi
denotes an element of the vector defining H(i).
Alignment requirements
======================
The distributed submatrix sub( A ) must verify some alignment proper
ties, namely the following expression should be true:
( MB_A.EQ.NB_A .AND. IROFFA.EQ.ICOFFA .AND. IROFFA.EQ.0 ) with
IROFFA = MOD( IA1, MB_A ) and ICOFFA = MOD( JA1, NB_A ).
