## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine strsyl (character TRANA, character TRANB, integer ISGN, integer M, integer N, real, dimension( lda, * ) A, integer LDA, real, dimension( ldb, * ) B, integer LDB, real, dimension( ldc, * ) C, integer LDC, real SCALE, integer INFO)

**STRSYL**

**Purpose:**

STRSYL solves the real Sylvester matrix equation: op(A)*X + X*op(B) = scale*C or op(A)*X - X*op(B) = scale*C, where op(A) = A or A**T, and A and B are both upper quasi- triangular. A is M-by-M and B is N-by-N; the right hand side C and the solution X are M-by-N; and scale is an output scale factor, set <= 1 to avoid overflow in X. A and B must be in Schur canonical form (as returned by SHSEQR), that is, block upper triangular with 1-by-1 and 2-by-2 diagonal blocks; each 2-by-2 diagonal block has its diagonal elements equal and its off-diagonal elements of opposite sign.

**Parameters:***TRANA*TRANA is CHARACTER*1 Specifies the option op(A): = 'N': op(A) = A (No transpose) = 'T': op(A) = A**T (Transpose) = 'C': op(A) = A**H (Conjugate transpose = Transpose)

*TRANB*TRANB is CHARACTER*1 Specifies the option op(B): = 'N': op(B) = B (No transpose) = 'T': op(B) = B**T (Transpose) = 'C': op(B) = B**H (Conjugate transpose = Transpose)

*ISGN*ISGN is INTEGER Specifies the sign in the equation: = +1: solve op(A)*X + X*op(B) = scale*C = -1: solve op(A)*X - X*op(B) = scale*C

*M*M is INTEGER The order of the matrix A, and the number of rows in the matrices X and C. M >= 0.

*N*N is INTEGER The order of the matrix B, and the number of columns in the matrices X and C. N >= 0.

*A*A is REAL array, dimension (LDA,M) The upper quasi-triangular matrix A, in Schur canonical form.

*LDA*LDA is INTEGER The leading dimension of the array A. LDA >= max(1,M).

*B*B is REAL array, dimension (LDB,N) The upper quasi-triangular matrix B, in Schur canonical form.

*LDB*LDB is INTEGER The leading dimension of the array B. LDB >= max(1,N).

*C*C is REAL array, dimension (LDC,N) On entry, the M-by-N right hand side matrix C. On exit, C is overwritten by the solution matrix X.

*LDC*LDC is INTEGER The leading dimension of the array C. LDC >= max(1,M)

*SCALE*SCALE is REAL The scale factor, scale, set <= 1 to avoid overflow in X.

*INFO*INFO is INTEGER = 0: successful exit < 0: if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value = 1: A and B have common or very close eigenvalues; perturbed values were used to solve the equation (but the matrices A and B are unchanged).
