## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine sgemv (characterTRANS, integerM, integerN, realALPHA, real, dimension(lda,*)A, integerLDA, real, dimension(*)X, integerINCX, realBETA, real, dimension(*)Y, integerINCY)

**SGEMV Purpose:**

```
SGEMV performs one of the matrix-vector operations
y := alpha*A*x + beta*y, or y := alpha*A**T*x + beta*y,
where alpha and beta are scalars, x and y are vectors and A is an
m by n matrix.
```

**Parameters:**

*TRANS*

```
TRANS is CHARACTER*1
On entry, TRANS specifies the operation to be performed as
follows:
TRANS = 'N' or 'n' y := alpha*A*x + beta*y.
TRANS = 'T' or 't' y := alpha*A**T*x + beta*y.
TRANS = 'C' or 'c' y := alpha*A**T*x + beta*y.
```

*M*

```
M is INTEGER
On entry, M specifies the number of rows of the matrix A.
M must be at least zero.
```

*N*

```
N is INTEGER
On entry, N specifies the number of columns of the matrix A.
N must be at least zero.
```

*ALPHA*

```
ALPHA is REAL
On entry, ALPHA specifies the scalar alpha.
```

*A*

```
A is REAL array of DIMENSION ( LDA, n ).
Before entry, the leading m by n part of the array A must
contain the matrix of coefficients.
```

*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 ).
```

*X*

```
X is REAL array of DIMENSION at least
( 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.
```

*INCX*

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

*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.
```

*Y*

```
Y is REAL array of DIMENSION at least
( 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.
