       DSBMV - perform the matrix-vector operation   y := alpha*A*x + beta*y,

SYNOPSIS

       SUBROUTINE DSBMV ( UPLO, N, K, ALPHA, A, LDA, X, INCX, BETA, Y, INCY )

           DOUBLE       PRECISION ALPHA, BETA

           INTEGER      INCX, INCY, K, LDA, N

           CHARACTER*1  UPLO

           DOUBLE       PRECISION A( LDA, * ), X( * ), Y( * )

PURPOSE

       DSBMV  performs the matrix-vector  operation

       where  alpha  and  beta  are  scalars,  x  and  y are n element vectors and A is an n by n
       symmetric band matrix, with k super-diagonals.

PARAMETERS

       UPLO   - CHARACTER*1.
              On entry, UPLO specifies whether the upper or lower triangular  part  of  the  band
              matrix A is being supplied as follows:

              UPLO = 'U' or 'u'   The upper triangular part of A is being supplied.

              UPLO = 'L' or 'l'   The lower triangular part of A is being supplied.

              Unchanged on exit.

       N      - INTEGER.
              On  entry,  N  specifies  the  order  of  the  matrix  A.  N must be at least zero.
              Unchanged on exit.

       K      - INTEGER.
              On entry, K specifies the number of super-diagonals of the matrix A. K must satisfy
              0 .le. K.  Unchanged on exit.

       ALPHA  - DOUBLE PRECISION.
              On entry, ALPHA specifies the scalar alpha.  Unchanged on exit.

       A      - DOUBLE PRECISION array of DIMENSION ( LDA, n ).
              Before entry with UPLO = 'U' or 'u', the leading ( k + 1 ) by n part of the array A
              must contain the upper triangular band  part  of  the  symmetric  matrix,  supplied
              column  by  column, with the leading diagonal of the matrix in row ( k + 1 ) of the
              array, the first super-diagonal starting at position 2 in row k, and so on. The top
              left  k  by  k  triangle  of  the array A is not referenced.  The following program
              segment will transfer the upper triangular part of a  symmetric  band  matrix  from
              conventional full matrix storage to band storage:

              DO 20, J = 1, N M = K + 1 - J DO 10, I = MAX( 1, J - K ), J A( M + I, J ) = matrix(
              I, J ) 10    CONTINUE 20 CONTINUE

              Before entry with UPLO = 'L' or 'l', the leading ( k + 1 ) by n part of the array A
              must  contain  the  lower  triangular  band  part of the symmetric matrix, supplied
              column by column, with the leading diagonal of the matrix in row 1  of  the  array,
              the first sub-diagonal starting at position 1 in row 2, and so on. The bottom right
              k by k triangle of the array A is not referenced.  The  following  program  segment
              will   transfer  the  lower  triangular  part  of  a  symmetric  band  matrix  from
              conventional full matrix storage to band storage:

              DO 20, J = 1, N M = 1 - J DO 10, I = J, MIN( N, J + K ) A( M + I, J ) = matrix(  I,
              J ) 10    CONTINUE 20 CONTINUE

              Unchanged on exit.

       LDA    - INTEGER.
              On  entry,  LDA specifies the first dimension of A as declared in the calling (sub)
              program. LDA must be at least ( k + 1 ).  Unchanged on exit.

       X      - DOUBLE PRECISION array of DIMENSION at least
              ( 1 + ( n - 1 )*abs( INCX ) ).  Before entry, the incremented array X must  contain
              the vector x.  Unchanged on exit.

       INCX   - INTEGER.
              On  entry,  INCX  specifies  the  increment for the elements of X. INCX must not be
              zero.  Unchanged on exit.

       BETA   - DOUBLE PRECISION.
              On entry, BETA specifies the scalar beta.  Unchanged on exit.

       Y      - DOUBLE PRECISION array of DIMENSION at least
              ( 1 + ( n - 1 )*abs( INCY ) ).  Before entry, the incremented array Y must  contain
              the vector y. On exit, Y is overwritten by the updated vector y.

       INCY   - INTEGER.
              On  entry,  INCY  specifies  the  increment for the elements of Y. INCY must not be
              zero.  Unchanged on exit.

              Level 2 Blas routine.
