## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine dsymv (character UPLO, integer N, double precision ALPHA, double precision, dimension(lda,*) A, integer LDA, double precision, dimension(*) X, integer INCX, double precision BETA, double precision, dimension(*) Y, integer INCY)

**DSYMV**

**Purpose:**

DSYMV performs the matrix-vector operation y := alpha*A*x + beta*y, where alpha and beta are scalars, x and y are n element vectors and A is an n by n symmetric matrix.

**Parameters:***UPLO*UPLO is CHARACTER*1 On entry, UPLO specifies whether the upper or lower triangular part of the array A is to be referenced as follows: UPLO = 'U' or 'u' Only the upper triangular part of A is to be referenced. UPLO = 'L' or 'l' Only the lower triangular part of A is to be referenced.

*N*N is INTEGER On entry, N specifies the order of the matrix A. N must be at least zero.

*ALPHA*ALPHA is DOUBLE PRECISION. On entry, ALPHA specifies the scalar alpha.

*A*A is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension ( LDA, N ) Before entry with UPLO = 'U' or 'u', the leading n by n upper triangular part of the array A must contain the upper triangular part of the symmetric matrix and the strictly lower triangular part of A is not referenced. Before entry with UPLO = 'L' or 'l', the leading n by n lower triangular part of the array A must contain the lower triangular part of the symmetric matrix and the strictly upper triangular part of A is not referenced.

*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, n ).

*X*X is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension at least ( 1 + ( n - 1 )*abs( INCX ) ). Before entry, the incremented array X must contain the n element vector x.

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

*BETA*BETA is DOUBLE PRECISION. On entry, BETA specifies the scalar beta. When BETA is supplied as zero then Y need not be set on input.

*Y*Y is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension at least ( 1 + ( n - 1 )*abs( INCY ) ). Before entry, the incremented array Y must contain the n element 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.
