```       ZHEMM - perform one of the matrix-matrix operations   C := alpha*A*B + beta*C,

```

#### SYNOPSIS

```       SUBROUTINE ZHEMM ( SIDE, UPLO, M, N, ALPHA, A, LDA, B, LDB, BETA, C, LDC )

CHARACTER*1  SIDE, UPLO

INTEGER      M, N, LDA, LDB, LDC

COMPLEX*16   ALPHA, BETA

COMPLEX*16   A( LDA, * ), B( LDB, * ), C( LDC, * )

```

#### PURPOSE

```       ZHEMM  performs one of the matrix-matrix operations

or

C := alpha*B*A + beta*C,

where  alpha  and  beta  are  scalars,  A  is  an hermitian matrix and  B and C are m by n
matrices.

```

#### PARAMETERS

```       SIDE   - CHARACTER*1.
On entry,  SIDE  specifies whether  the  hermitian matrix  A appears on  the   left
or right  in the  operation as follows:

SIDE = 'L' or 'l'   C := alpha*A*B + beta*C,

SIDE = 'R' or 'r'   C := alpha*B*A + beta*C,

Unchanged on exit.

UPLO   - CHARACTER*1.
On   entry,    UPLO  specifies  whether  the  upper  or  lower triangular  part  of
the  hermitian  matrix   A  is  to  be referenced as follows:

UPLO = 'U' or 'u'   Only the upper triangular part of the hermitian matrix is to be
referenced.

UPLO = 'L' or 'l'   Only the lower triangular part of the hermitian matrix is to be
referenced.

Unchanged on exit.

M      - INTEGER.
On entry,  M  specifies the number of rows of the matrix  C.  M  must be  at  least
zero.  Unchanged on exit.

N      - INTEGER.
On  entry,  N specifies the number of columns of the matrix C.  N  must be at least
zero.  Unchanged on exit.

ALPHA  - COMPLEX*16      .
On entry, ALPHA specifies the scalar alpha.  Unchanged on exit.

A      - COMPLEX*16       array of DIMENSION ( LDA, ka ), where ka is
m  when  SIDE = 'L' or 'l'  and is n  otherwise.  Before entry  with  SIDE = 'L' or
'l',   the  m by m  part of the array  A  must contain the  hermitian matrix,  such
that when  UPLO = 'U' or 'u', the leading m by m upper triangular part of the array
A   must  contain  the  upper  triangular  part  of  the   hermitian matrix and the
strictly  lower triangular part of  A  is not referenced,  and when  UPLO = 'L'  or
'l',  the  leading   m  by m  lower triangular part  of the  array  A must  contain
the  lower triangular part  of  the   hermitian  matrix  and  the   strictly  upper
triangular  part  of  A  is not referenced.  Before entry  with  SIDE = 'R' or 'r',
the  n by n  part of the array  A  must contain the  hermitian matrix,   such  that
when   UPLO  = 'U' or 'u', the leading n by n upper triangular part of the array  A
must contain the upper triangular part of the  hermitian matrix and  the   strictly
lower  triangular  part of  A  is not referenced,  and when  UPLO = 'L' or 'l', the
leading  n by n  lower triangular part  of the  array  A must  contain  the   lower
triangular  part   of the  hermitian matrix and the  strictly upper triangular part
of  A  is not referenced.  Note that the imaginary parts  of the diagonal  elements
need not be set, they are assumed to be zero.  Unchanged on exit.

LDA    - INTEGER.
On  entry, LDA specifies the first dimension of A as declared in the  calling (sub)
program. When  SIDE = 'L' or 'l'  then LDA must be at least  max( 1, m ), otherwise
LDA must be at least max( 1, n ).  Unchanged on exit.

B      - COMPLEX*16       array of DIMENSION ( LDB, n ).
Before  entry, the leading  m 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.   LDB  must  be  at  least max( 1, m ).  Unchanged on exit.

BETA   - COMPLEX*16      .
On  entry,  BETA  specifies the scalar  beta.  When  BETA  is supplied as zero then
C need not be set on input.  Unchanged on exit.

C      - COMPLEX*16       array of DIMENSION ( LDC, n ).
Before entry, the leading  m by n  part of the array  C must contain the matrix  C,
except when  beta  is zero, in which case C need not be set on entry.  On exit, the
array  C  is overwritten by the  m by n 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, m ).  Unchanged on exit.
