.TH DLASSQ 1 "November 2006" " LAPACK auxiliary routine (version 3.1) " " LAPACK auxiliary routine (version 3.1) " .SH NAME DLASSQ - the values scl and smsq such that ( scl**2 )*smsq = x( 1 )**2 +...+ x( n )**2 + ( scale**2 )*sumsq, .SH SYNOPSIS .TP 19 SUBROUTINE DLASSQ( N, X, INCX, SCALE, SUMSQ ) .TP 19 .ti +4 INTEGER INCX, N .TP 19 .ti +4 DOUBLE PRECISION SCALE, SUMSQ .TP 19 .ti +4 DOUBLE PRECISION X( * ) .SH PURPOSE DLASSQ returns the values scl and smsq such that where x( i ) = X( 1 + ( i - 1 )*INCX ). The value of sumsq is assumed to be non-negative and scl returns the value .br scl = max( scale, abs( x( i ) ) ). .br scale and sumsq must be supplied in SCALE and SUMSQ and .br scl and smsq are overwritten on SCALE and SUMSQ respectively. The routine makes only one pass through the vector x. .br .SH ARGUMENTS .TP 8 N (input) INTEGER The number of elements to be used from the vector X. .TP 8 X (input) DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (N) The vector for which a scaled sum of squares is computed. x( i ) = X( 1 + ( i - 1 )*INCX ), 1 <= i <= n. .TP 8 INCX (input) INTEGER The increment between successive values of the vector X. INCX > 0. .TP 8 SCALE (input/output) DOUBLE PRECISION On entry, the value scale in the equation above. On exit, SCALE is overwritten with scl , the scaling factor for the sum of squares. .TP 8 SUMSQ (input/output) DOUBLE PRECISION On entry, the value sumsq in the equation above. On exit, SUMSQ is overwritten with smsq , the basic sum of squares from which scl has been factored out.
