## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine slatrz (integerM, integerN, integerL, real, dimension( lda, * )A, integerLDA, real, dimension( * )TAU, real, dimension( * )WORK)

**SLATRZ** factors an upper trapezoidal matrix by means of orthogonal transformations.

**Purpose:**

```
SLATRZ factors the M-by-(M+L) real upper trapezoidal matrix
[ A1 A2 ] = [ A(1:M,1:M) A(1:M,N-L+1:N) ] as ( R 0 ) * Z, by means
of orthogonal transformations. Z is an (M+L)-by-(M+L) orthogonal
matrix and, R and A1 are M-by-M upper triangular matrices.
```

**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.
```

*L*

```
L is INTEGER
The number of columns of the matrix A containing the
meaningful part of the Householder vectors. N-M >= L >= 0.
```

*A*

```
A is REAL array, dimension (LDA,N)
On entry, the leading M-by-N upper trapezoidal part of the
array A must contain the matrix to be factorized.
On exit, the leading M-by-M upper triangular part of A
contains the upper triangular matrix R, and elements N-L+1 to
N of the first M rows of A, with the array TAU, represent the
orthogonal matrix Z as a product of M elementary reflectors.
```

*LDA*

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

*TAU*

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

*WORK*

`WORK is REAL array, dimension (M)`

**Further Details:**

```
The factorization is obtained by Householder's method. The kth
transformation matrix, Z( k ), which is used to introduce zeros into
the ( m - k + 1 )th row of A, is given in the form
Z( k ) = ( I 0 ),
( 0 T( k ) )
where
T( k ) = I - tau*u( k )*u( k )**T, u( k ) = ( 1 ),
( 0 )
( z( k ) )
tau is a scalar and z( k ) is an l element vector. tau and z( k )
are chosen to annihilate the elements of the kth row of A2.
The scalar tau is returned in the kth element of TAU and the vector
u( k ) in the kth row of A2, such that the elements of z( k ) are
in a( k, l + 1 ), ..., a( k, n ). The elements of R are returned in
the upper triangular part of A1.
Z is given by
Z = Z( 1 ) * Z( 2 ) * ... * Z( m ).
