**STPRFB** applies a real or complex 'triangular-pentagonal' blocked reflector to a real or complex matrix, which is composed of two blocks.

**Purpose:**

```
STPRFB applies a real "triangular-pentagonal" block reflector H or its
conjugate transpose H^H to a real matrix C, which is composed of two
blocks A and B, either from the left or right.
```

**Parameters:**

*SIDE*

```
SIDE is CHARACTER*1
= 'L': apply H or H^H from the Left
= 'R': apply H or H^H from the Right
```

*TRANS*

```
TRANS is CHARACTER*1
= 'N': apply H (No transpose)
= 'C': apply H^H (Conjugate transpose)
```

*DIRECT*

```
DIRECT is CHARACTER*1
Indicates how H is formed from a product of elementary
reflectors
= 'F': H = H(1) H(2) . . . H(k) (Forward)
= 'B': H = H(k) . . . H(2) H(1) (Backward)
```

*STOREV*

```

reflectors are stored:
= 'C': Columns
= 'R': Rows
```

*M*

```
M is INTEGER
The number of rows of the matrix B.
M >= 0.
```

*N*

```

reflectors whose product defines the block reflector.
K >= 0.

```
L is INTEGER
The order of the trapezoidal part of V.
K >= L >= 0. See Further Details.

LDV is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array V.
If STOREV = 'C' and SIDE = 'L', LDV >= max(1,M);

block reflector.

On entry, the K-by-N or M-by-K matrix A.
On exit, A is overwritten by the corresponding block of
H*C or H^H*C or C*H or C*H^H. See Futher Details.
```

*LDA*

```
LDA is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array A.
If SIDE = 'L', LDC >= max(1,K);
If SIDE = 'R', LDC >= max(1,M).
```

*B*

The matrix C is a composite matrix formed from blocks A and B.
The block B is of size M-by-N; if SIDE = 'R', A is of size M-by-K,
and if SIDE = 'L', A is of size K-by-N.
If SIDE = 'R' and DIRECT = 'F', C = [A B].
If SIDE = 'L' and DIRECT = 'F', C = [A]
[B].
If SIDE = 'R' and DIRECT = 'B', C = [B A].
If SIDE = 'L' and DIRECT = 'B', C = [B]
[A].
The pentagonal matrix V is composed of a rectangular block V1 and a
trapezoidal block V2. The size of the trapezoidal block is determined by
the parameter L, where 0<=L<=K. If L=K, the V2 block of V is triangular;
if L=0, there is no trapezoidal block, thus V = V1 is rectangular.
If DIRECT = 'F' and STOREV = 'C': V = [V1]
[V2]
- V2 is upper trapezoidal (first L rows of K-by-K upper triangular)
If DIRECT = 'F' and STOREV = 'R': V = [V1 V2]
- V2 is lower trapezoidal (first L columns of K-by-K lower triangular)
If DIRECT = 'B' and STOREV = 'C': V = [V2]
[V1]
- V2 is lower trapezoidal (last L rows of K-by-K lower triangular)
If DIRECT = 'B' and STOREV = 'R': V = [V2 V1]
- V2 is upper trapezoidal (last L columns of K-by-K upper triangular)
If STOREV = 'C' and SIDE = 'L', V is M-by-K with V2 L-by-K.
If STOREV = 'C' and SIDE = 'R', V is N-by-K with V2 L-by-K.
If STOREV = 'R' and SIDE = 'L', V is K-by-M with V2 K-by-L.
If STOREV = 'R' and SIDE = 'R', V is K-by-N with V2 K-by-L.
