## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine cla_geamv (integer TRANS, integer M, integer N, real ALPHA, complex, dimension( lda, * ) A, integer LDA, complex, dimension( * ) X, integer INCX, real BETA, real, dimension( * ) Y, integer INCY)

**CLA_GEAMV** computes a matrix-vector product using a general matrix to calculate error bounds.

**Purpose:**

CLA_GEAMV performs one of the matrix-vector operations y := alpha*abs(A)*abs(x) + beta*abs(y), or y := alpha*abs(A)**T*abs(x) + beta*abs(y), where alpha and beta are scalars, x and y are vectors and A is an m by n matrix. This function is primarily used in calculating error bounds. To protect against underflow during evaluation, components in the resulting vector are perturbed away from zero by (N+1) times the underflow threshold. To prevent unnecessarily large errors for block-structure embedded in general matrices, "symbolically" zero components are not perturbed. A zero entry is considered "symbolic" if all multiplications involved in computing that entry have at least one zero multiplicand.

**Parameters:***TRANS*TRANS is INTEGER On entry, TRANS specifies the operation to be performed as follows: BLAS_NO_TRANS y := alpha*abs(A)*abs(x) + beta*abs(y) BLAS_TRANS y := alpha*abs(A**T)*abs(x) + beta*abs(y) BLAS_CONJ_TRANS y := alpha*abs(A**T)*abs(x) + beta*abs(y) Unchanged on exit.

*M*M is INTEGER On entry, M specifies the number of rows of the matrix A. M must be at least zero. Unchanged on exit.

*N*N is INTEGER On entry, N specifies the number of columns of the matrix A. N must be at least zero. Unchanged on exit.

*ALPHA*ALPHA is REAL On entry, ALPHA specifies the scalar alpha. Unchanged on exit.

*A*A is COMPLEX array, dimension (LDA,n) Before entry, the leading m by n part of the array A must contain the matrix of coefficients. Unchanged on exit.

*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, m ). Unchanged on exit.

*X*X is COMPLEX array, dimension ( 1 + ( n - 1 )*abs( INCX ) ) when TRANS = 'N' or 'n' and at least ( 1 + ( m - 1 )*abs( INCX ) ) otherwise. Before entry, the incremented array X must contain the vector x. Unchanged on exit.

*INCX*INCX is INTEGER On entry, INCX specifies the increment for the elements of X. INCX must not be zero. Unchanged on exit.

*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. Unchanged on exit.

*Y*Y is REAL array, dimension ( 1 + ( m - 1 )*abs( INCY ) ) when TRANS = 'N' or 'n' and at least ( 1 + ( n - 1 )*abs( INCY ) ) otherwise. Before entry with BETA non-zero, the incremented array Y must contain the 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. Unchanged on exit. Level 2 Blas routine.
