### Test Matrices for the Nonsymmetric Eigenvalue Routines

Twenty-one different types of test matrices may be generated for the nonsymmetric eigenvalue routines. Table 5 shows the types available, along with the numbers used to refer to the matrix types. Except as noted, all matrices have 124#124 entries.

Table 5: Test matrices for the nonsymmetric eigenvalue problem
 Eigenvalue Distribution Type Arithmetic Geometric Clustered Random Other Zero 1 Identity 2 125#125 3 Diagonal 4, 726#26, 8126#126 5 6 127#127 9 10 11 12 128#128 13 14 15 16, 1726#26, 18126#126 Random entries 19, 2026#26, 21126#126 26#26- matrix entries are 129#129 126#126- matrix entries are 130#130

Matrix types identified as Zero'', Identity'', Diagonal'', and Random entries'' should be self-explanatory. The other matrix types have the following meanings:

131#131:
Matrix with ones on the diagonal and the first subdiagonal, and zeros elsewhere

127#127:
Schur-form matrix 85#85 with 124#124 entries conjugated by a unitary (or real orthogonal) matrix 132#132

128#128:
Schur-form matrix 85#85 with 124#124 entries conjugated by an ill-conditioned matrix 98#98

For eigenvalue distributions other than Other'', the eigenvalues lie between 9#9 (the machine precision) and 133#133 in absolute value. The eigenvalue distributions have the following meanings:

Arithmetic:
Difference between adjacent eigenvalues is a constant
Geometric:
Ratio of adjacent eigenvalues is a constant
Clustered:
One eigenvalue is 133#133 and the rest are 9#9 in absolute value
Random:
Eigenvalues are logarithmically distributed
