**SLALN2** solves a 1-by-1 or 2-by-2 linear system of equations of the specified form.

**Purpose:**

SLALN2 solves a system of the form (ca A - w D ) X = s B or (ca A**T - w D) X = s B with possible scaling ("s") and perturbation of A. (A**T means A-transpose.) A is an NA x NA real matrix, ca is a real scalar, D is an NA x NA real diagonal matrix, w is a real or complex value, and X and B are NA x 1 matrices -- real if w is real, complex if w is complex. NA may be 1 or 2. If w is complex, X and B are represented as NA x 2 matrices, the first column of each being the real part and the second being the imaginary part. "s" is a scaling factor (.LE. 1), computed by SLALN2, which is so chosen that X can be computed without overflow. X is further scaled if necessary to assure that norm(ca A - w D)*norm(X) is less than overflow. If both singular values of (ca A - w D) are less than SMIN, SMIN*identity will be used instead of (ca A - w D). If only one singular value is less than SMIN, one element of (ca A - w D) will be perturbed enough to make the smallest singular value roughly SMIN. If both singular values are at least SMIN, (ca A - w D) will not be perturbed. In any case, the perturbation will be at most some small multiple of max( SMIN, ulp*norm(ca A - w D) ). The singular values are computed by infinity-norm approximations, and thus will only be correct to a factor of 2 or so. Note: all input quantities are assumed to be smaller than overflow by a reasonable factor. (See BIGNUM.)

**Parameters:**-
*LTRANS*LTRANS is LOGICAL =.TRUE.: A-transpose will be used. =.FALSE.: A will be used (not transposed.)

*NA*NA is INTEGER The size of the matrix A. It may (only) be 1 or 2.

*NW*NW is INTEGER 1 if "w" is real, 2 if "w" is complex. It may only be 1 or 2.

*SMIN*SMIN is REAL The desired lower bound on the singular values of A. This should be a safe distance away from underflow or overflow, say, between (underflow/machine precision) and (machine precision * overflow ). (See BIGNUM and ULP.)

*CA*CA is REAL The coefficient c, which A is multiplied by.

*A*A is REAL array, dimension (LDA,NA) The NA x NA matrix A.

*LDA*LDA is INTEGER The leading dimension of A. It must be at least NA.

*D1*D1 is REAL The 1,1 element in the diagonal matrix D.

*D2*D2 is REAL The 2,2 element in the diagonal matrix D. Not used if NW=1.

*B*B is REAL array, dimension (LDB,NW) The NA x NW matrix B (right-hand side). If NW=2 ("w" is complex), column 1 contains the real part of B and column 2 contains the imaginary part.

*LDB*LDB is INTEGER The leading dimension of B. It must be at least NA.

*WR*WR is REAL The real part of the scalar "w".

*WI*WI is REAL The imaginary part of the scalar "w". Not used if NW=1.

*X*X is REAL array, dimension (LDX,NW) The NA x NW matrix X (unknowns), as computed by SLALN2. If NW=2 ("w" is complex), on exit, column 1 will contain the real part of X and column 2 will contain the imaginary part.

*LDX*LDX is INTEGER The leading dimension of X. It must be at least NA.

*SCALE*SCALE is REAL The scale factor that B must be multiplied by to insure that overflow does not occur when computing X. Thus, (ca A - w D) X will be SCALE*B, not B (ignoring perturbations of A.) It will be at most 1.

*XNORM*XNORM is REAL The infinity-norm of X, when X is regarded as an NA x NW real matrix.

*INFO*INFO is INTEGER An error flag. It will be set to zero if no error occurs, a negative number if an argument is in error, or a positive number if ca A - w D had to be perturbed. The possible values are: = 0: No error occurred, and (ca A - w D) did not have to be perturbed. = 1: (ca A - w D) had to be perturbed to make its smallest (or only) singular value greater than SMIN. NOTE: In the interests of speed, this routine does not check the inputs for errors.
