EPICG

This function computes the performance index for a complex eigensystem.

Function Return Value

EPICG — Performance index. (Output)

Required Arguments

Description

Let M = NEVAL, λ = EVAL, xj = EVEC(*, J), the j-th column of EVEC. Also, let ɛ be the machine precision given by AMACH(4). The performance index, , is defined to be

The norms used are a modified form of the 1-norm. The norm of the complex vector v is

While the exact value of is highly machine dependent, the performance of EVCCG is considered excellent if < 1, good if 1 ≤ ≤ 100, and poor if > 100. The performance index was first developed by the EISPACK project at Argonne National Laboratory; see Smith et al. (1976, pages 124-125).

Comments

1. Workspace may be explicitly provided, if desired, by use of E2ICG/DE2ICG. The reference is:

E2ICG (N, NEVAL, A, LDA, EVAL, EVEC, LDEVEC, WK)

The additional argument is:

WK — Complex work array of length N.
