dsymv.f(3) LAPACK dsymv.f(3)dsymv.fNAME-Functions/Subroutines subroutine dsymv (UPLO, N, ALPHA, A, LDA, X, INCX, BETA, Y, INCY) DSYMVSYNOPSISFunction/Subroutine Documentation subroutine dsymv (characterUPLO, integerN, double precisionALPHA, double precision, dimension(lda,*)A, integerLDA, double precision, dimension(*)X, integerINCX, double precisionBETA, double precision, dimension(*)Y, integerINCY) DSYMV Purpose: DSYMV performs the matrix-vector operation y := alpha*A*x + beta*y, where alpha and beta are scalars, x and y are n element vectors and A is an n by n symmetric matrix. Parameters: UPLO UPLO is CHARACTER*1 On entry, UPLO specifies whether the upper or lower triangular part of the array A is to be referenced as follows: UPLO = 'U' or 'u' Only the upper triangular part of A is to be referenced. UPLO = 'L' or 'l' Only the lower triangular part of A is to be referenced. N N is INTEGER On entry, N specifies the order of the matrix A. N must be at least zero. ALPHA ALPHA is DOUBLE PRECISION. On entry, ALPHA specifies the scalar alpha. A A is DOUBLE PRECISION array of DIMENSION ( LDA, n ). Before entry with UPLO = 'U' or 'u', the leading n by n upper triangular part of the array A must contain the upper triangular part of the symmetric matrix and the strictly lower triangular part of A is not referenced. Before entry with UPLO = 'L' or 'l', the leading n by n lower triangular part of the array A must contain the lower triangular part of the symmetric matrix and the strictly upper triangular part of A is not referenced. LDA LDA is INTEGER On entry, LDA specifies the first dimension of A as declared in the calling (sub) program. LDA must be at least max( 1, n ). X X is DOUBLE PRECISION array of dimension at least ( 1 + ( n - 1 )*abs( INCX ) ). Before entry, the incremented array X must contain the n element vector x. INCX INCX is INTEGER On entry, INCX specifies the increment for the elements of X. INCX must not be zero. BETA BETA is DOUBLE PRECISION. On entry, BETA specifies the scalar beta. When BETA is supplied as zero then Y need not be set on input. Y Y is DOUBLE PRECISION array of dimension at least ( 1 + ( n - 1 )*abs( INCY ) ). Before entry, the incremented array Y must contain the n element vector y. On exit, Y is overwritten by the updated vector y. INCY INCY is INTEGER On entry, INCY specifies the increment for the elements of Y. INCY must not be zero. Author: Univ. of Tennessee Univ. of California Berkeley Univ. of Colorado Denver NAG Ltd.
