6. More details

 *xSYSV_ROOK: LDL^T^ with rook pivoting.* Contribution by Craig Lucas (University
of Manchester and NAG) and Sven Hammarling (NAG).  These subroutines enable
better stability than the Bunch-Kaufman pivoting scheme currently used in
LAPACK xSYSV solvers; also, the elements of L are bounded, which is important
in some applications.  The computational time of xSYSV_ROOK is slightly higher than
the one of xSYSV.
  • New stopping criteria for balancing.

  • more robust complex division routine [DLADIV]- suggested by Victor Liu <> contributed by Michael Baudin, Robert L. Smith Source: Robert L. Smith is actually the original inventor of the current algorithm in Lapack. I have attached my modified DLADIV routine, which passes all the tests in the build process.
