## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine ctrsm (character SIDE, character UPLO, character TRANSA, character DIAG, integer M, integer N, complex ALPHA, complex, dimension(lda,*) A, integer LDA, complex, dimension(ldb,*) B, integer LDB)

**CTRSM**

**Purpose:**

CTRSM solves one of the matrix equations op( A )*X = alpha*B, or X*op( A ) = alpha*B, where alpha is a scalar, X and B are m by n matrices, A is a unit, or non-unit, upper or lower triangular matrix and op( A ) is one of op( A ) = A or op( A ) = A**T or op( A ) = A**H. The matrix X is overwritten on B.

**Parameters:***SIDE*SIDE is CHARACTER*1 On entry, SIDE specifies whether op( A ) appears on the left or right of X as follows: SIDE = 'L' or 'l' op( A )*X = alpha*B. SIDE = 'R' or 'r' X*op( A ) = alpha*B.

*UPLO*UPLO is CHARACTER*1 On entry, UPLO specifies whether the matrix A is an upper or lower triangular matrix as follows: UPLO = 'U' or 'u' A is an upper triangular matrix. UPLO = 'L' or 'l' A is a lower triangular matrix.

*TRANSA*TRANSA is CHARACTER*1 On entry, TRANSA specifies the form of op( A ) to be used in the matrix multiplication as follows: TRANSA = 'N' or 'n' op( A ) = A. TRANSA = 'T' or 't' op( A ) = A**T. TRANSA = 'C' or 'c' op( A ) = A**H.

*DIAG*DIAG is CHARACTER*1 On entry, DIAG specifies whether or not A is unit triangular as follows: DIAG = 'U' or 'u' A is assumed to be unit triangular. DIAG = 'N' or 'n' A is not assumed to be unit triangular.

*M*M is INTEGER On entry, M specifies the number of rows of B. M must be at least zero.

*N*N is INTEGER On entry, N specifies the number of columns of B. N must be at least zero.

*ALPHA*ALPHA is COMPLEX On entry, ALPHA specifies the scalar alpha. When alpha is zero then A is not referenced and B need not be set before entry.

*A*A is COMPLEX array, dimension ( LDA, k ), where k is m when SIDE = 'L' or 'l' and k is n when SIDE = 'R' or 'r'. Before entry with UPLO = 'U' or 'u', the leading k by k upper triangular part of the array A must contain the upper triangular matrix and the strictly lower triangular part of A is not referenced. Before entry with UPLO = 'L' or 'l', the leading k by k lower triangular part of the array A must contain the lower triangular matrix and the strictly upper triangular part of A is not referenced. Note that when DIAG = 'U' or 'u', the diagonal elements of A are not referenced either, but are assumed to be unity.

*LDA*LDA is INTEGER On entry, LDA specifies the first dimension of A as declared in the calling (sub) program. When SIDE = 'L' or 'l' then LDA must be at least max( 1, m ), when SIDE = 'R' or 'r' then LDA must be at least max( 1, n ).

*B*B is COMPLEX array, dimension ( LDB, N ) Before entry, the leading m by n part of the array B must contain the right-hand side matrix B, and on exit is overwritten by the solution matrix X.

*LDB*LDB is INTEGER On entry, LDB specifies the first dimension of B as declared in the calling (sub) program. LDB must be at least max( 1, m ).
