## Detailed Description

## Function Documentation

### subroutine ctrsv (character uplo, character trans, character diag, integer n, complex, dimension(lda,*) a, integer lda, complex, dimension(*) x, integer incx)

**CTRSV**

**Purpose:**

CTRSV solves one of the systems of equations A*x = b, or A**T*x = b, or A**H*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. 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**H*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.

*A*A is COMPLEX array, 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 matrix and the strictly lower triangular part of A is not referenced. Before entry with UPLO = 'L' or 'l', the leading n by n lower triangular part of the array A must contain the lower triangular matrix and the strictly upper triangular part of A is not referenced. Note that when DIAG = 'U' or 'u', the diagonal elements of A are not referenced either, but are assumed to be unity.

*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 ).

*X*X is COMPLEX array, 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.
