## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine ssyr2 (characterUPLO, integerN, realALPHA, real, dimension(*)X, integerINCX, real, dimension(*)Y, integerINCY, real, dimension(lda,*)A, integerLDA)

**SSYR2 Purpose:**

```
SSYR2 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.
```

**Parameters:**

*UPLO*

```
UPLO is CHARACTER*1
On entry, UPLO specifies whether the upper or lower
triangular part of the array A is to be referenced as
follows:
UPLO = 'U' or 'u' Only the upper triangular part of A
is to be referenced.
UPLO = 'L' or 'l' Only the lower triangular part of A
is to be referenced.
```

*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.
```

*A*

```
A is REAL array of DIMENSION ( LDA, n ).
Before entry with UPLO = 'U' or 'u', the leading n by n
upper triangular part of the array A must contain the upper
triangular part of the symmetric matrix and the strictly
lower triangular part of A is not referenced. On exit, the
upper triangular part of the array A is overwritten by the
upper triangular part of the updated matrix.
Before entry with UPLO = 'L' or 'l', the leading n by n
lower triangular part of the array A must contain the lower
triangular part of the symmetric matrix and the strictly
upper triangular part of A is not referenced. On exit, the
lower triangular part of the array A is overwritten by the
lower triangular part of the updated matrix.
```

*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
max( 1, n ).
