```       LAPACK-3  -  applies  a  complex elementary reflector H to a complex M-by-N matrix C, from
either the left or the right

```

#### SYNOPSIS

```       SUBROUTINE ZLARF( SIDE, M, N, V, INCV, TAU, C, LDC, WORK )

IMPLICIT      NONE

CHARACTER     SIDE

INTEGER       INCV, LDC, M, N

COMPLEX*16    TAU

COMPLEX*16    C( LDC, * ), V( * ), WORK( * )

```

#### PURPOSE

```       ZLARF applies a complex elementary reflector H to a complex M-by-N matrix C,  from  either
the left or the right. H is represented in the
form
H = I - tau * v * v**H
where tau is a complex scalar and v is a complex vector.
If tau = 0, then H is taken to be the unit matrix.
To apply H**H, supply conjg(tau) instead
tau.

```

#### ARGUMENTS

```        SIDE    (input) CHARACTER*1
= 'L': form  H * C
= 'R': form  C * H

M       (input) INTEGER
The number of rows of the matrix C.

N       (input) INTEGER
The number of columns of the matrix C.

V       (input) COMPLEX*16 array, dimension
(1 + (M-1)*abs(INCV)) if SIDE = 'L'
or (1 + (N-1)*abs(INCV)) if SIDE = 'R'
The vector v in the representation of H. V is not used if
TAU = 0.

INCV    (input) INTEGER
The increment between elements of v. INCV <> 0.

TAU     (input) COMPLEX*16
The value tau in the representation of H.

C       (input/output) COMPLEX*16 array, dimension (LDC,N)
On entry, the M-by-N matrix C.
On exit, C is overwritten by the matrix H * C if SIDE = 'L',
or C * H if SIDE = 'R'.

LDC     (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array C. LDC >= max(1,M).

WORK    (workspace) COMPLEX*16 array, dimension
(N) if SIDE = 'L'
or (M) if SIDE = 'R'
