**NAME**

SSYR2K - perform one of the symmetric rank 2k operations C := alpha*A*B' + alpha*B*A' + beta*C,

**SYNOPSIS**

SUBROUTINE SSYR2K( UPLO, TRANS, N, K, ALPHA, A, LDA, B, LDB, BETA, C, LDC ) CHARACTER*1 UPLO, TRANS INTEGER N, K, LDA, LDB, LDC REAL ALPHA, BETA REAL A( LDA, * ), B( LDB, * ), C( LDC, * )

**PURPOSE**

SSYR2K performs one of the symmetric rank 2k operations or C := alpha*A'*B + alpha*B'*A + beta*C, where alpha and beta are scalars, C is an n by n symmetric matrix and A and B are n by k matrices in the first case and k by n matrices in the second case.

**PARAMETERS**

UPLO - CHARACTER*1. On entry, UPLO specifies whether the upper or lower triangular part of the array C is to be referenced as follows: UPLO = 'U' or 'u' Only the upper triangular part of C is to be referenced. UPLO = 'L' or 'l' Only the lower triangular part of C is to be referenced. Unchanged on exit. TRANS - CHARACTER*1. On entry, TRANS specifies the operation to be performed as follows: TRANS = 'N' or 'n' C := alpha*A*B' + alpha*B*A' + beta*C. TRANS = 'T' or 't' C := alpha*A'*B + alpha*B'*A + beta*C. TRANS = 'C' or 'c' C := alpha*A'*B + alpha*B'*A + beta*C. Unchanged on exit. N - INTEGER. On entry, N specifies the order of the matrix C. N must be at least zero. Unchanged on exit. K - INTEGER. On entry with TRANS = 'N' or 'n', K specifies the number of columns of the matrices A and B, and on entry with TRANS = 'T' or 't' or 'C' or 'c', K specifies the number of rows of the matrices A and B. K must be at least zero. Unchanged on exit. ALPHA - REAL . On entry, ALPHA specifies the scalar alpha. Unchanged on exit. A - REAL array of DIMENSION ( LDA, ka ), where ka is k when TRANS = 'N' or 'n', and is n otherwise. Before entry with TRANS = 'N' or 'n', the leading n by k part of the array A must contain the matrix A, otherwise the leading k by n part of the array A must contain the matrix A. Unchanged on exit. LDA - INTEGER. On entry, LDA specifies the first dimension of A as declared in the calling (sub) program. When TRANS = 'N' or 'n' then LDA must be at least max( 1, n ), otherwise LDA must be at least max( 1, k ). Unchanged on exit. B - REAL array of DIMENSION ( LDB, kb ), where kb is k when TRANS = 'N' or 'n', and is n otherwise. Before entry with TRANS = 'N' or 'n', the leading n by k part of the array B must contain the matrix B, otherwise the leading k by n part of the array B must contain the matrix B. Unchanged on exit. LDB - INTEGER. On entry, LDB specifies the first dimension of B as declared in the calling (sub) program. When TRANS = 'N' or 'n' then LDB must be at least max( 1, n ), otherwise LDB must be at least max( 1, k ). Unchanged on exit. BETA - REAL . On entry, BETA specifies the scalar beta. Unchanged on exit. C - REAL array of DIMENSION ( LDC, n ). Before entry with UPLO = 'U' or 'u', the leading n by n upper triangular part of the array C must contain the upper triangular part of the symmetric matrix and the strictly lower triangular part of C is not referenced. On exit, the upper triangular part of the array C is overwritten by the upper triangular part of the updated matrix. Before entry with UPLO = 'L' or 'l', the leading n by n lower triangular part of the array C must contain the lower triangular part of the symmetric matrix and the strictly upper triangular part of C is not referenced. On exit, the lower triangular part of the array C is overwritten by the lower triangular part of the updated matrix. LDC - INTEGER. On entry, LDC specifies the first dimension of C as declared in the calling (sub) program. LDC must be at least max( 1, n ). Unchanged on exit. Level 3 Blas routine. -- Written on 8-February-1989.
