## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine sla_lin_berr (integerN, integerNZ, integerNRHS, 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.
