ZHERK(l) BLAS routine ZHERK(l)
NAME
ZHERK  perform one of the hermitian rank k operations C := alpha*A*conjg( A' ) +
beta*C,
SYNOPSIS
SUBROUTINE ZHERK ( UPLO, TRANS, N, K, ALPHA, A, LDA, BETA, C, LDC )
CHARACTER*1 UPLO, TRANS
INTEGER N, K, LDA, LDC
DOUBLE PRECISION ALPHA, BETA
COMPLEX*16 A( LDA, * ), C( LDC, * )
PURPOSE
ZHERK performs one of the hermitian rank k operations
or
C := alpha*conjg( A' )*A + beta*C,
where alpha and beta are real scalars, C is an n by n hermitian matrix and A is an
n by k matrix in the first case and a k by n matrix in the second case.
PARAMETERS
UPLO  CHARACTER*1.
On entry, UPLO specifies whether the upper or lower triangular part of
the array C is to be referenced as follows:
UPLO = 'U' or 'u' Only the upper triangular part of C is to be referenced.
UPLO = 'L' or 'l' Only the lower triangular part of C is to be referenced.
Unchanged on exit.
TRANS  CHARACTER*1.
On entry, TRANS specifies the operation to be performed as follows:
TRANS = 'N' or 'n' C := alpha*A*conjg( A' ) + beta*C.
TRANS = 'C' or 'c' C := alpha*conjg( A' )*A + beta*C.
Unchanged on exit.
N  INTEGER.
On entry, N specifies the order of the matrix C. N must be at least zero.
Unchanged on exit.
K  INTEGER.
On entry with TRANS = 'N' or 'n', K specifies the number of columns of the
matrix A, and on entry with TRANS = 'C' or 'c', K specifies the number
of rows of the matrix A. K must be at least zero. Unchanged on exit.
ALPHA  DOUBLE PRECISION.
On entry, ALPHA specifies the scalar alpha. Unchanged on exit.
A  COMPLEX*16 array of DIMENSION ( LDA, ka ), where ka is
k when TRANS = 'N' or 'n', and is n otherwise. Before entry with TRANS = 'N'
or 'n', the leading n by k part of the array A must contain the matrix A,
otherwise the leading k by n part of the array A must contain the matrix A.
Unchanged on exit.
LDA  INTEGER.
On entry, LDA specifies the first dimension of A as declared in the calling
(sub) program. When TRANS = 'N' or 'n' then LDA must be at least max( 1, n ),
otherwise LDA must be at least max( 1, k ). Unchanged on exit.
BETA  DOUBLE PRECISION.
On entry, BETA specifies the scalar beta. Unchanged on exit.
C  COMPLEX*16 array of DIMENSION ( LDC, n ).
Before entry with UPLO = 'U' or 'u', the leading n by n upper triangular part
of the array C must contain the upper triangular part of the hermitian matrix
and the strictly lower triangular part of C is not referenced. On exit, the upper
triangular part of the array C 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 C must contain the lower triangular part of the her
mitian matrix and the strictly upper triangular part of C is not referenced. On
exit, the lower triangular part of the array C is overwritten by the lower trian
gular part of the updated matrix. Note that the imaginary parts of the diagonal
elements need not be set, they are assumed to be zero, and on exit they are set
to zero.
LDC  INTEGER.
On entry, LDC specifies the first dimension of C as declared in the calling
(sub) program. LDC must be at least max( 1, n ). Unchanged on exit.
