## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine ssyrk (character UPLO, character TRANS, integer N, integer K, real ALPHA, real, dimension(lda,*) A, integer LDA, real BETA, real, dimension(ldc,*) C, integer LDC)

**SSYRK**

**Purpose:**

SSYRK performs one of the symmetric rank k operations C := alpha*A*A**T + beta*C, or C := alpha*A**T*A + beta*C, where alpha and beta are scalars, C is an n by n symmetric matrix and A is an n by k matrix in the first case and a k by n matrix in the second case.

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

*TRANS*TRANS is CHARACTER*1 On entry, TRANS specifies the operation to be performed as follows: TRANS = 'N' or 'n' C := alpha*A*A**T + beta*C. TRANS = 'T' or 't' C := alpha*A**T*A + beta*C. TRANS = 'C' or 'c' C := alpha*A**T*A + beta*C.

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

*K*K is INTEGER On entry with TRANS = 'N' or 'n', K specifies the number of columns of the matrix A, and on entry with TRANS = 'T' or 't' or 'C' or 'c', K specifies the number of rows of the matrix A. K must be at least zero.

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

*A*A is REAL array, dimension ( LDA, ka ), where ka is k when TRANS = 'N' or 'n', and is n otherwise. Before entry with TRANS = 'N' or 'n', the leading n by k part of the array A must contain the matrix A, otherwise the leading k by n part of the array A must contain the matrix A.

*LDA*LDA is INTEGER On entry, LDA specifies the first dimension of A as declared in the calling (sub) program. When TRANS = 'N' or 'n' then LDA must be at least max( 1, n ), otherwise LDA must be at least max( 1, k ).

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

*C*C is REAL array, dimension ( LDC, N ) Before entry with UPLO = 'U' or 'u', the leading n by n upper triangular part of the array C must contain the upper triangular part of the symmetric matrix and the strictly lower triangular part of C is not referenced. On exit, the upper triangular part of the array C 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 C must contain the lower triangular part of the symmetric matrix and the strictly upper triangular part of C is not referenced. On exit, the lower triangular part of the array C is overwritten by the lower triangular part of the updated matrix.

*LDC*LDC is INTEGER On entry, LDC specifies the first dimension of C as declared in the calling (sub) program. LDC must be at least max( 1, n ).
