## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine slaset (characterUPLO, integerM, integerN, realALPHA, realBETA, real, dimension( lda, * )A, integerLDA)

**SLASET** initializes the off-diagonal elements and the diagonal elements of a matrix to given values.

**Purpose:**

```
SLASET initializes an m-by-n matrix A to BETA on the diagonal and
ALPHA on the offdiagonals.
```

**Parameters:**

*UPLO*

```
UPLO is CHARACTER*1
Specifies the part of the matrix A to be set.
= 'U': Upper triangular part is set; the strictly lower
triangular part of A is not changed.
= 'L': Lower triangular part is set; the strictly upper
triangular part of A is not changed.
Otherwise: All of the matrix A is set.
```

*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.
```

*ALPHA*

```
ALPHA is REAL
The constant to which the offdiagonal elements are to be set.
```

*BETA*

```
BETA is REAL
The constant to which the diagonal elements are to be set.
```

*A*

```
A is REAL array, dimension (LDA,N)
On exit, the leading m-by-n submatrix of A is set as follows:
if UPLO = 'U', A(i,j) = ALPHA, 1<=i<=j-1, 1<=j<=n,
if UPLO = 'L', A(i,j) = ALPHA, j+1<=i<=m, 1<=j<=n,
otherwise, A(i,j) = ALPHA, 1<=i<=m, 1<=j<=n, i.ne.j,
and, for all UPLO, A(i,i) = BETA, 1<=i<=min(m,n).
```

*LDA*

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