F07FFF (DPOEQU) computes a diagonal scaling matrix
chosen so that
This means that the matrix
has diagonal elements equal to unity. This in turn means that the condition number of
, is within a factor
of the matrix of smallest possible condition number over all possible choices of diagonal scalings (see Corollary 7.6 of Higham (2002)

- 1: N – INTEGERInput
On entry: , the order of the matrix .
- 2: A(LDA,) – REAL (KIND=nag_wp) arrayInput
the second dimension of the array A
must be at least
: the matrix
whose scaling factors are to be computed. Only the diagonal elements of the array A
- 3: LDA – INTEGERInput
: the first dimension of the array A
as declared in the (sub)program from which F07FFF (DPOEQU) is called.
- 4: S(N) – REAL (KIND=nag_wp) arrayOutput
contains the diagonal elements of the scaling matrix
- 5: SCOND – REAL (KIND=nag_wp)Output
contains the ratio of the smallest value of S
to the largest value of S
is neither too large nor too small, it is not worth scaling by
- 6: AMAX – REAL (KIND=nag_wp)Output
. If AMAX
is very close to overflow or underflow, the matrix
should be scaled.
- 7: INFO – INTEGEROutput
unless the routine detects an error (see Section 6
6 Error Indicators and Warnings
Errors or warnings detected by the routine:
If , the th argument had an illegal value. An explanatory message is output, and execution of the program is terminated.
If , the th diagonal element of is not positive (and hence cannot be positive definite).
The computed scale factors will be close to the exact scale factors.
The complex analogue of this routine is F07FTF (ZPOEQU)
This example equilibrates the symmetric positive definite matrix
Details of the scaling factors and the scaled matrix are output.
