sspmv.f(3) LAPACK sspmv.f(3)sspmv.fNAME-Functions/Subroutines subroutine sspmv (UPLO, N, ALPHA, AP, X, INCX, BETA, Y, INCY) SSPMVSYNOPSISFunction/Subroutine Documentation subroutine sspmv (characterUPLO, integerN, realALPHA, real, dimension(*)AP, real, dimension(*)X, integerINCX, realBETA, real, dimension(*)Y, integerINCY) SSPMV Purpose: SSPMV 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, supplied in packed form. Parameters: UPLO UPLO is CHARACTER*1 On entry, UPLO specifies whether the upper or lower triangular part of the matrix A is supplied in the packed array AP as follows: UPLO = 'U' or 'u' The upper triangular part of A is supplied in AP. UPLO = 'L' or 'l' The lower triangular part of A is supplied in AP. N N is INTEGER On entry, N specifies the order of the matrix A. N must be at least zero. ALPHA ALPHA is REAL On entry, ALPHA specifies the scalar alpha. AP AP is REAL array of DIMENSION at least ( ( n*( n + 1 ) )/2 ). Before entry with UPLO = 'U' or 'u', the array AP must contain the upper triangular part of the symmetric matrix packed sequentially, column by column, so that AP( 1 ) contains a( 1, 1 ), AP( 2 ) and AP( 3 ) contain a( 1, 2 ) and a( 2, 2 ) respectively, and so on. Before entry with UPLO = 'L' or 'l', the array AP must contain the lower triangular part of the symmetric matrix packed sequentially, column by column, so that AP( 1 ) contains a( 1, 1 ), AP( 2 ) and AP( 3 ) contain a( 2, 1 ) and a( 3, 1 ) respectively, and so on. X X is REAL 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 REAL On entry, BETA specifies the scalar beta. When BETA is supplied as zero then Y need not be set on input. Y Y is REAL 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.
