## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine slarfg (integer N, real ALPHA, real, dimension( * ) X, integer INCX, real TAU)

**SLARFG** generates an elementary reflector (Householder matrix).

**Purpose:**

SLARFG generates a real elementary reflector H of order n, such that H * ( alpha ) = ( beta ), H**T * H = I. ( x ) ( 0 ) where alpha and beta are scalars, and x is an (n-1)-element real vector. H is represented in the form H = I - tau * ( 1 ) * ( 1 v**T ) , ( v ) where tau is a real scalar and v is a real (n-1)-element vector. If the elements of x are all zero, then tau = 0 and H is taken to be the unit matrix. Otherwise 1 <= tau <= 2.

**Parameters:**-
*N*N is INTEGER The order of the elementary reflector.

*ALPHA*ALPHA is REAL On entry, the value alpha. On exit, it is overwritten with the value beta.

*X*X is REAL array, dimension (1+(N-2)*abs(INCX)) On entry, the vector x. On exit, it is overwritten with the vector v.

*INCX*INCX is INTEGER The increment between elements of X. INCX > 0.

*TAU*TAU is REAL The value tau.
