## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine claset (characterUPLO, integerM, integerN, complexALPHA, complexBETA, complex, dimension( lda, * )A, integerLDA)

**CLASET** initializes the off-diagonal elements and the diagonal elements of a matrix to given values.

**Purpose:**

```
CLASET initializes a 2-D array A to BETA on the diagonal and
ALPHA on the offdiagonals.
```

**Parameters:**

*UPLO*

```
UPLO is CHARACTER*1
Specifies the part of the matrix A to be set.
= 'U': Upper triangular part is set. The lower triangle
is unchanged.
= 'L': Lower triangular part is set. The upper triangle
is unchanged.
Otherwise: All of the matrix A is set.
```

*M*

```
M is INTEGER
On entry, M specifies the number of rows of A.
```

*N*

```
N is INTEGER
On entry, N specifies the number of columns of A.
```

*ALPHA*

```
ALPHA is COMPLEX
All the offdiagonal array elements are set to ALPHA.
```

*BETA*

```
BETA is COMPLEX
All the diagonal array elements are set to BETA.
```

*A*

```
A is COMPLEX array, dimension (LDA,N)
On entry, the m by n matrix A.
On exit, A(i,j) = ALPHA, 1 <= i <= m, 1 <= j <= n, i.ne.j;
A(i,i) = BETA , 1 <= i <= min(m,n)
```

*LDA*

```
LDA is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array A. LDA >= max(1,M).
```
