## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine dlaqsp (character UPLO, integer N, double precision, dimension( * ) AP, double precision, dimension( * ) S, double precision SCOND, double precision AMAX, character EQUED)

**DLAQSP** scales a symmetric/Hermitian matrix in packed storage, using scaling factors computed by sppequ.

**Purpose:**

DLAQSP equilibrates a symmetric matrix A using the scaling factors in the vector S.

**Parameters:***UPLO*UPLO is CHARACTER*1 Specifies whether the upper or lower triangular part of the symmetric matrix A is stored. = 'U': Upper triangular = 'L': Lower triangular

*N*N is INTEGER The order of the matrix A. N >= 0.

*AP*AP is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (N*(N+1)/2) On entry, the upper or lower triangle of the symmetric matrix A, packed columnwise in a linear array. The j-th column of A is stored in the array AP as follows: if UPLO = 'U', AP(i + (j-1)*j/2) = A(i,j) for 1<=i<=j; if UPLO = 'L', AP(i + (j-1)*(2n-j)/2) = A(i,j) for j<=i<=n. On exit, the equilibrated matrix: diag(S) * A * diag(S), in the same storage format as A.

*S*S is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (N) The scale factors for A.

*SCOND*SCOND is DOUBLE PRECISION Ratio of the smallest S(i) to the largest S(i).

*AMAX*AMAX is DOUBLE PRECISION Absolute value of largest matrix entry.

*EQUED*EQUED is CHARACTER*1 Specifies whether or not equilibration was done. = 'N': No equilibration. = 'Y': Equilibration was done, i.e., A has been replaced by diag(S) * A * diag(S).

**Internal Parameters:**

THRESH is a threshold value used to decide if scaling should be done based on the ratio of the scaling factors. If SCOND < THRESH, scaling is done. LARGE and SMALL are threshold values used to decide if scaling should be done based on the absolute size of the largest matrix element. If AMAX > LARGE or AMAX < SMALL, scaling is done.
