**NAME**

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

**SYNOPSIS**

SUBROUTINE DSYMV ( UPLO, N, ALPHA, A, LDA, X, INCX, BETA, Y, INCY ) DOUBLE PRECISION ALPHA, BETA INTEGER INCX, INCY, LDA, N CHARACTER*1 UPLO DOUBLE PRECISION A( LDA, * ), X( * ), Y( * )

**PURPOSE**

DSYMV 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 matrix.

**PARAMETERS**

UPLO - CHARACTER*1. On entry, UPLO specifies whether the upper or lower triangular part of the array A is to be referenced as follows: UPLO = 'U' or 'u' Only the upper triangular part of A is to be referenced. UPLO = 'L' or 'l' Only the lower triangular part of A is to be referenced. Unchanged on exit. N - INTEGER. On entry, N specifies the order of the matrix A. N must be at least zero. 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 n by n upper triangular part of the array A must contain the upper triangular part of the symmetric 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 part of the symmetric matrix and the strictly upper triangular part of A is not referenced. 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 max( 1, n ). 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 n element 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. When BETA is supplied as zero then Y need not be set on input. 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 n element 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. -- Written on 22-October-1986. Jack Dongarra, Argonne National Lab.
