## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine sspr2 (characterUPLO, integerN, realALPHA, real, dimension(*)X, integerINCX, real, dimension(*)Y, integerINCY, real, dimension(*)AP)

**SSPR2 Purpose:**

```
SSPR2 performs the symmetric rank 2 operation
A := alpha*x*y**T + alpha*y*x**T + A,
where alpha is a scalar, x and y are n element vectors and A is an
n by n symmetric matrix, supplied in packed form.
```

**Parameters:**

*UPLO*

```
UPLO is CHARACTER*1
On entry, UPLO specifies whether the upper or lower
triangular part of the matrix A is supplied in the packed
array AP as follows:
UPLO = 'U' or 'u' The upper triangular part of A is
supplied in AP.
UPLO = 'L' or 'l' The lower triangular part of A is
supplied in AP.
```

*N*

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

*ALPHA*

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

*X*

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

*INCX*

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

*Y*

```
Y is REAL array of dimension at least
( 1 + ( n - 1 )*abs( INCY ) ).
Before entry, the incremented array Y must contain the n
element vector y.
```

*INCY*

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

*AP*

```
AP is REAL array of DIMENSION at least
( ( n*( n + 1 ) )/2 ).
Before entry with UPLO = 'U' or 'u', the array AP must
contain the upper triangular part of the symmetric matrix
packed sequentially, column by column, so that AP( 1 )
contains a( 1, 1 ), AP( 2 ) and AP( 3 ) contain a( 1, 2 )
and a( 2, 2 ) respectively, and so on. On exit, the array
AP is overwritten by the upper triangular part of the
updated matrix.
Before entry with UPLO = 'L' or 'l', the array AP must
contain the lower triangular part of the symmetric matrix
packed sequentially, column by column, so that AP( 1 )
contains a( 1, 1 ), AP( 2 ) and AP( 3 ) contain a( 2, 1 )
and a( 3, 1 ) respectively, and so on. On exit, the array
AP is overwritten by the lower triangular part of the
updated matrix.
