## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine slaqp2 (integerM, integerN, integerOFFSET, real, dimension( lda, * )A, integerLDA, integer, dimension( * )JPVT, real, dimension( * )TAU, real, dimension( * )VN1, real, dimension( * )VN2, real, dimension( * )WORK)

**SLAQP2** computes a QR factorization with column pivoting of the matrix block.

**Purpose:**

```
SLAQP2 computes a QR factorization with column pivoting of
the block A(OFFSET+1:M,1:N).
The block A(1:OFFSET,1:N) is accordingly pivoted, but not factorized.
```

**Parameters:**

*M*

```
M is INTEGER
The number of rows of the matrix A. M >= 0.
```

*N*

```
N is INTEGER
The number of columns of the matrix A. N >= 0.
```

*OFFSET*

```
OFFSET is INTEGER
The number of rows of the matrix A that must be pivoted
but no factorized. OFFSET >= 0.
```

*A*

```
A is REAL array, dimension (LDA,N)
On entry, the M-by-N matrix A.
On exit, the upper triangle of block A(OFFSET+1:M,1:N) is
the triangular factor obtained; the elements in block
A(OFFSET+1:M,1:N) below the diagonal, together with the
array TAU, represent the orthogonal matrix Q as a product of
elementary reflectors. Block A(1:OFFSET,1:N) has been
accordingly pivoted, but no factorized.
```

*LDA*

```
LDA is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array A. LDA >= max(1,M).
```

*JPVT*

```
JPVT is INTEGER array, dimension (N)
On entry, if JPVT(i) .ne. 0, the i-th column of A is permuted
to the front of A*P (a leading column); if JPVT(i) = 0,
the i-th column of A is a free column.
On exit, if JPVT(i) = k, then the i-th column of A*P
was the k-th column of A.
```

*TAU*

```
TAU is REAL array, dimension (min(M,N))
The scalar factors of the elementary reflectors.
```

*VN1*

```
VN1 is REAL array, dimension (N)
The vector with the partial column norms.
```

*VN2*

```
VN2 is REAL array, dimension (N)
The vector with the exact column norms.
```

*WORK*

`WORK is REAL array, dimension (N)`
