## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine sla_lin_berr (integer N, integer NZ, integer NRHS, real, dimension( n, nrhs ) RES, real, dimension( n, nrhs ) AYB, real, dimension( nrhs ) BERR)

**SLA_LIN_BERR** computes a component-wise relative backward error.

**Purpose:**

SLA_LIN_BERR computes componentwise relative backward error from the formula max(i) ( abs(R(i)) / ( abs(op(A_s))*abs(Y) + abs(B_s) )(i) ) where abs(Z) is the componentwise absolute value of the matrix or vector Z.

**Parameters:**-
*N*N is INTEGER The number of linear equations, i.e., the order of the matrix A. N >= 0.

*NZ*NZ is INTEGER We add (NZ+1)*SLAMCH( 'Safe minimum' ) to R(i) in the numerator to guard against spuriously zero residuals. Default value is N.

*NRHS*NRHS is INTEGER The number of right hand sides, i.e., the number of columns of the matrices AYB, RES, and BERR. NRHS >= 0.

*RES*RES is REAL array, dimension (N,NRHS) The residual matrix, i.e., the matrix R in the relative backward error formula above.

*AYB*AYB is REAL array, dimension (N, NRHS) The denominator in the relative backward error formula above, i.e., the matrix abs(op(A_s))*abs(Y) + abs(B_s). The matrices A, Y, and B are from iterative refinement (see sla_gerfsx_extended.f).

*BERR*BERR is REAL array, dimension (NRHS) The componentwise relative backward error from the formula above.
