## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine ssbmv (character UPLO, integer N, integer K, real ALPHA, real, dimension(lda,*) A, integer LDA, real, dimension(*) X, integer INCX, real BETA, real, dimension(*) Y, integer INCY)

**SSBMV**

**Purpose:**

SSBMV performs the matrix-vector operation y := alpha*A*x + beta*y, where alpha and beta are scalars, x and y are n element vectors and A is an n by n symmetric band matrix, with k super-diagonals.

**Parameters:**-
*UPLO*UPLO is CHARACTER*1 On entry, UPLO specifies whether the upper or lower triangular part of the band matrix A is being supplied as follows: UPLO = 'U' or 'u' The upper triangular part of A is being supplied. UPLO = 'L' or 'l' The lower triangular part of A is being supplied.

*N*N is INTEGER On entry, N specifies the order of the matrix A. N must be at least zero.

*K*K is INTEGER On entry, K specifies the number of super-diagonals of the matrix A. K must satisfy 0 .le. K.

*ALPHA*ALPHA is REAL On entry, ALPHA specifies the scalar alpha.

*A*A is REAL array, dimension ( LDA, N ) Before entry with UPLO = 'U' or 'u', the leading ( k + 1 ) by n part of the array A must contain the upper triangular band part of the symmetric matrix, supplied column by column, with the leading diagonal of the matrix in row ( k + 1 ) of the array, the first super-diagonal starting at position 2 in row k, and so on. The top left k by k triangle of the array A is not referenced. The following program segment will transfer the upper triangular part of a symmetric band matrix from conventional full matrix storage to band storage: DO 20, J = 1, N M = K + 1 - J DO 10, I = MAX( 1, J - K ), J A( M + I, J ) = matrix( I, J ) 10 CONTINUE 20 CONTINUE Before entry with UPLO = 'L' or 'l', the leading ( k + 1 ) by n part of the array A must contain the lower triangular band part of the symmetric matrix, supplied column by column, with the leading diagonal of the matrix in row 1 of the array, the first sub-diagonal starting at position 1 in row 2, and so on. The bottom right k by k triangle of the array A is not referenced. The following program segment will transfer the lower triangular part of a symmetric band matrix from conventional full matrix storage to band storage: DO 20, J = 1, N M = 1 - J DO 10, I = J, MIN( N, J + K ) A( M + I, J ) = matrix( I, J ) 10 CONTINUE 20 CONTINUE

*LDA*LDA is INTEGER On entry, LDA specifies the first dimension of A as declared in the calling (sub) program. LDA must be at least ( k + 1 ).

*X*X is REAL array, dimension at least ( 1 + ( n - 1 )*abs( INCX ) ). Before entry, the incremented array X must contain the vector x.

*INCX*INCX is INTEGER On entry, INCX specifies the increment for the elements of X. INCX must not be zero.

*BETA*BETA is REAL On entry, BETA specifies the scalar beta.

*Y*Y is REAL array, dimension at least ( 1 + ( n - 1 )*abs( INCY ) ). Before entry, the incremented array Y must contain the vector y. On exit, Y is overwritten by the updated vector y.

*INCY*INCY is INTEGER On entry, INCY specifies the increment for the elements of Y. INCY must not be zero.
