## Function/Subroutine Documentation

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

**SGER Purpose:**

```
SGER performs the rank 1 operation
A := alpha*x*y**T + A,
where alpha is a scalar, x is an m element vector, y is an n element
vector and A is an m by n matrix.
```

**Parameters:**

*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.
```

*X*

```
X is REAL array of dimension at least
( 1 + ( m - 1 )*abs( INCX ) ).
Before entry, the incremented array X must contain the m
element vector x.
```

*INCX*

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

*Y*

```
Y is REAL array of dimension at least
( 1 + ( n - 1 )*abs( INCY ) ).
Before entry, the incremented array Y must contain the n
element vector y.
```

*INCY*

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

*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. On exit, A is
overwritten by the updated matrix.
```

*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 ).
