The BRD test program generates random nonsymmetric test matrices with values in the interval [-1,1], calls the ScaLAPACK routines to reduce the test matrix to upper or lower bidiagonal form, and computes a reduction residual error check to verify that each operation has performed correctly.

Specifically, each test matrix is subjected to the following tests:

- Reduce the matrix to upper or lower bidiagonal form using PxGEBRD
- .

- and compute the ratio
