## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine stpsv (characterUPLO, characterTRANS, characterDIAG, integerN, real, dimension(*)AP, real, dimension(*)X, integerINCX)

**STPSV Purpose:**

```
STPSV solves one of the systems of equations
A*x = b, or A**T*x = b,
where b and x are n element vectors and A is an n by n unit, or
non-unit, upper or lower triangular matrix, supplied in packed form.
No test for singularity or near-singularity is included in this
routine. Such tests must be performed before calling this routine.
```

**Parameters:**

*UPLO*

```
UPLO is CHARACTER*1
On entry, UPLO specifies whether the matrix is an upper or
lower triangular matrix as follows:
UPLO = 'U' or 'u' A is an upper triangular matrix.
UPLO = 'L' or 'l' A is a lower triangular matrix.
```

*TRANS*

```
TRANS is CHARACTER*1
On entry, TRANS specifies the equations to be solved as
follows:
TRANS = 'N' or 'n' A*x = b.
TRANS = 'T' or 't' A**T*x = b.
TRANS = 'C' or 'c' A**T*x = b.
```

*DIAG*

```
DIAG is CHARACTER*1
On entry, DIAG specifies whether or not A is unit
triangular as follows:
DIAG = 'U' or 'u' A is assumed to be unit triangular.
DIAG = 'N' or 'n' A is not assumed to be unit
triangular.
```

*N*

```
N is INTEGER
On entry, N specifies the order of the matrix A.
N must be at least 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 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.
Before entry with UPLO = 'L' or 'l', the array AP must
contain the lower triangular 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.
Note that when DIAG = 'U' or 'u', the diagonal elements of
A are not referenced, but are assumed to be unity.
```

*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 right-hand side vector b. On exit, X is overwritten
with the solution vector x.
```

*INCX*

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