## Synopsis

### Functions/Subroutines

subroutine **sger** (M, **N**, ALPHA, X, INCX, Y, INCY, A, **LDA**)**SGER**

## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine sger (integer M, integer N, real ALPHA, real, dimension(*) X, integer INCX, real, dimension(*) Y, integer INCY, real, dimension(lda,*) A, integer LDA)

**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, 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, 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, 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 ).
