Hi,
I have made a small test including MKL and MAGMA eigenvectors/eigenvalues calculation. I thought it could be due to my data, but it also gives wrong results using the random double matrix generator. For small values (14  32) of N, it gives right results, however it doesn't give the right value for eigenvectors for large values of N (1024 onwards). It always gives right results for eigenvalues though. Is that a bug?

Re: Possible bug dsyevd_gpu test wrong eigenvectors result
Hi Stan,
Did you have a chance to run my test? I've run the test on the Fermi C2050 cards. I have not tried on the K20s yet, but I guess it will hav ethe same effect.
Have you ever heard anything else from anybody about that?
Thanks for your help.
Luis

Re: Possible bug dsyevd_gpu test wrong eigenvectors result
Hi Luis,
I just ran the test and reproduced your result on a K20c.
I added a check for the factorization though and for the orthogonality and everything looks fine:
I added the check at the end of calcMAGMA.cc with the following code:
Similar check for the LAPACK result gives that the factorization is correct and the eigenvectors are orthogonal:
I suppose this has to do with the directions of the vectors, or if there are repeated eigenvalues we may have chosen different than LAPACK corresponding eigenvectors. Is it important for you that the result matches the LAPACK results?

Re: Possible bug dsyevd_gpu test wrong eigenvectors result
I understand...And yes, your are right. Mathematically the result is correct, but for some reason they are different to the ones calculated with LAPACK. It seems that is important that eigenvectors match the LAPACK eigenvectors within my application...
Re: Possible bug dsyevd_gpu test wrong eigenvectors result
Hi, Stan!
I was using the default "testing_dsyevd" and "testing_dsyevd_gpu" in the "testing" directory in MAGMA v1.3.0. If a very small matrix, e.g. 10x10 matrix, was specified, then it gave some error messages.
Could you please help me to fix this problme?
Thank you!
