ssyr2.f(3) LAPACK ssyr2.f(3)ssyr2.fNAME-Functions/Subroutines subroutine ssyr2 (UPLO, N, ALPHA, X, INCX, Y, INCY, A, LDA) SSYR2SYNOPSISFunction/Subroutine Documentation subroutine ssyr2 (characterUPLO, integerN, realALPHA, real, dimension(*)X, integerINCX, real, dimension(*)Y, integerINCY, real, dimension(lda,*)A, integerLDA) SSYR2 Purpose: SSYR2 performs the symmetric rank 2 operation A := alpha*x*y**T + alpha*y*x**T + A, where alpha is a scalar, 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 REAL On entry, ALPHA specifies the scalar alpha. 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. 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. INCY INCY is INTEGER On entry, INCY specifies the increment for the elements of Y. INCY must not be zero. A A is REAL 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. On exit, the upper triangular part of the array A is overwritten by the upper triangular part of the updated matrix. 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. On exit, the lower triangular part of the array A is overwritten by the lower triangular part of the updated matrix. 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 ).
