## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine slarz (character SIDE, integer M, integer N, integer L, real, dimension( * ) V, integer INCV, real TAU, real, dimension( ldc, * ) C, integer LDC, real, dimension( * ) WORK)

**SLARZ** applies an elementary reflector (as returned by stzrzf) to a general matrix.

**Purpose:**

SLARZ applies a real elementary reflector H to a real M-by-N matrix C, from either the left or the right. H is represented in the form H = I - tau * v * v**T where tau is a real scalar and v is a real vector. If tau = 0, then H is taken to be the unit matrix. H is a product of k elementary reflectors as returned by STZRZF.

**Parameters:**-
*SIDE*SIDE is CHARACTER*1 = 'L': form H * C = 'R': form C * H

*M*M is INTEGER The number of rows of the matrix C.

*N*N is INTEGER The number of columns of the matrix C.

*L*L is INTEGER The number of entries of the vector V containing the meaningful part of the Householder vectors. If SIDE = 'L', M >= L >= 0, if SIDE = 'R', N >= L >= 0.

*V*V is REAL array, dimension (1+(L-1)*abs(INCV)) The vector v in the representation of H as returned by STZRZF. V is not used if TAU = 0.

*INCV*INCV is INTEGER The increment between elements of v. INCV <> 0.

*TAU*TAU is REAL The value tau in the representation of H.

*C*C is REAL array, dimension (LDC,N) On entry, the M-by-N matrix C. On exit, C is overwritten by the matrix H * C if SIDE = 'L', or C * H if SIDE = 'R'.

*LDC*LDC is INTEGER The leading dimension of the array C. LDC >= max(1,M).

*WORK*WORK is REAL array, dimension (N) if SIDE = 'L' or (M) if SIDE = 'R'
