## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine sgemv (character TRANS, integer M, integer N, real ALPHA, real, dimension(lda,*) A, integer LDA, real, dimension(*) X, integer INCX, real BETA, real, dimension(*) Y, integer INCY)

**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, 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, 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, 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.
