**NAME**

PSLARFB - applie a real block reflector Q or its transpose Q**T to a real distributed M- by-N matrix sub( C ) = C(IC:IC+M-1,JC:JC+N-1)

**SYNOPSIS**

SUBROUTINE PSLARFB( SIDE, TRANS, DIRECT, STOREV, M, N, K, V, IV, JV, DESCV, T, C, IC, JC, DESCC, WORK ) CHARACTER SIDE, TRANS, DIRECT, STOREV INTEGER IC, IV, JC, JV, K, M, N INTEGER DESCC( * ), DESCV( * ) REAL C( * ), T( * ), V( * ), WORK( * )

**PURPOSE**

PSLARFB applies a real block reflector Q or its transpose Q**T to a real distributed M-by- N matrix sub( C ) = C(IC:IC+M-1,JC:JC+N-1) from the left or the right. Notes ===== Each global data object is described by an associated description vector. This vector stores the information required to establish the mapping between an object element and its corresponding process and memory location. Let A be a generic term for any 2D block cyclicly distributed array. Such a global array has an associated description vector DESCA. In the following comments, the character _ should be read as "of the global array". NOTATION STORED IN EXPLANATION --------------- -------------- -------------------------------------- DTYPE_A(global) DESCA( DTYPE_ )The descriptor type. In this case, DTYPE_A = 1. CTXT_A (global) DESCA( CTXT_ ) The BLACS context handle, indicating the BLACS process grid A is distribu- ted over. The context itself is glo- bal, but the handle (the integer value) may vary. M_A (global) DESCA( M_ ) The number of rows in the global array A. N_A (global) DESCA( N_ ) The number of columns in the global array A. MB_A (global) DESCA( MB_ ) The blocking factor used to distribute the rows of the array. NB_A (global) DESCA( NB_ ) The blocking factor used to distribute the columns of the array. RSRC_A (global) DESCA( RSRC_ ) The process row over which the first row of the array A is distributed. CSRC_A (global) DESCA( CSRC_ ) The process column over which the first column of the array A is distributed. LLD_A (local) DESCA( LLD_ ) The leading dimension of the local array. LLD_A >= MAX(1,LOCr(M_A)). Let K be the number of rows or columns of a distributed matrix, and assume that its process grid has dimension p x q. LOCr( K ) denotes the number of elements of K that a process would receive if K were distributed over the p processes of its process column. Similarly, LOCc( K ) denotes the number of elements of K that a process would receive if K were distributed over the q processes of its process row. The values of LOCr() and LOCc() may be determined via a call to the ScaLAPACK tool function, NUMROC: LOCr( M ) = NUMROC( M, MB_A, MYROW, RSRC_A, NPROW ), LOCc( N ) = NUMROC( N, NB_A, MYCOL, CSRC_A, NPCOL ). An upper bound for these quantities may be computed by: LOCr( M ) <= ceil( ceil(M/MB_A)/NPROW )*MB_A LOCc( N ) <= ceil( ceil(N/NB_A)/NPCOL )*NB_A

Alignment requirements ====================== The distributed submatrices V(IV:*, JV:*) and C(IC:IC+M-1,JC:JC+N-1) must verify some alignment properties, namely the following expressions should be true: If STOREV = 'Columnwise' If SIDE = 'Left', ( MB_V.EQ.MB_C .AND. IROFFV.EQ.IROFFC .AND. IVROW.EQ.ICROW ) If SIDE = 'Right', ( MB_V.EQ.NB_C .AND. IROFFV.EQ.ICOFFC ) else if STOREV = 'Rowwise' If SIDE = 'Left', ( NB_V.EQ.MB_C .AND.
