## Purpose

LA_GGEV computes for a pair of real or complex matrices the generalized eigenvalues in the form of scalar pairs ( ) and, optionally, the left and/or right generalized eigenvectors.
A generalized eigenvalue of the pair is, roughly speaking, a scalar of the form such that the matrix is singular. It is usually represented as the pair , as there is a reasonable interpretation of the case (even if ).
A right generalized eigenvector corresponding to a generalized eigenvalue is a vector such that . A left generalized eigenvector is a vector such that , where is the conjugate-transpose of .
The computation is based on the (generalized) real or complex Schur form of . (See LA_GGES for details of this form.)
