EPIHF
This function computes the performance index for a complex Hermitian eigensystem.
Function Return Value
EPIHF — Performance index. (Output)
Required Arguments
NEVAL — Number of eigenvalue/eigenvector pairs on which the performance index computation is based. (Input)
A — Complex Hermitian matrix of order N. (Input)
EVAL — Vector of length NEVAL containing eigenvalues of A. (Input)
EVEC — Complex N by NEVAL array containing eigenvectors of A. (Input)
The eigenvector corresponding to the eigenvalue EVAL(J) must be in the J-th column of EVEC.
Optional Arguments
N — Order of the matrix A. (Input)
Default: N = SIZE (A,2).
LDA — Leading dimension of A exactly as specified in the dimension statement in the calling program. (Input)
Default: LDA = SIZE (A,1).
LDEVEC — Leading dimension of EVEC exactly as specified in the dimension statement in the calling program. (Input)
Default: LDEVEC = SIZE (EVEC,1).

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), see the Reference chapter of this manual. 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 EVCSF 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).
