.SH PURPOSE
DSYMV performs the matrix-vector operation
where alpha and beta are scalars, x and y are n element vectors and
A is an n by n symmetric matrix.

.SH ARGUMENTS
.TP 7
UPLO - CHARACTER*1.
On entry, UPLO specifies whether the upper or lower
triangular part of the array A is to be referenced as
follows:
UPLO = \(aqU\(aq or \(aqu\(aq Only the upper triangular part of A
is to be referenced.
UPLO = \(aqL\(aq or \(aql\(aq Only the lower triangular part of A
is to be referenced.
Unchanged on exit.
.TP 7
N - INTEGER.
On entry, N specifies the order of the matrix A.
N must be at least zero.
Unchanged on exit.
.TP 7
ALPHA - DOUBLE PRECISION.
On entry, ALPHA specifies the scalar alpha.
Unchanged on exit.
.TP 7
A - DOUBLE PRECISION array of DIMENSION ( LDA, n ).
Before entry with UPLO = \(aqU\(aq or \(aqu\(aq, the leading n by n
upper triangular part of the array A must contain the upper
triangular part of the symmetric matrix and the strictly
lower triangular part of A is not referenced.
Before entry with UPLO = \(aqL\(aq or \(aql\(aq, the leading n by n
lower triangular part of the array A must contain the lower
triangular part of the symmetric matrix and the strictly
upper triangular part of A is not referenced.
Unchanged on exit.
.TP 7
LDA - INTEGER.
On entry, LDA specifies the first dimension of A as declared
in the calling (sub) program. LDA must be at least
max( 1, n ).
Unchanged on exit.
.TP 7
X - DOUBLE PRECISION array of dimension at least
( 1 + ( n - 1 )*abs( INCX ) ).
Before entry, the incremented array X must contain the n
element vector x.
Unchanged on exit.
.TP 7
INCX - INTEGER.
On entry, INCX specifies the increment for the elements of
X. INCX must not be zero.
Unchanged on exit.
.TP 7
BETA - DOUBLE PRECISION.
On entry, BETA specifies the scalar beta. When BETA is
supplied as zero then Y need not be set on input.
Unchanged on exit.
.TP 7
Y - DOUBLE PRECISION array of dimension at least
( 1 + ( n - 1 )*abs( INCY ) ).
Before entry, the incremented array Y must contain the n
element vector y. On exit, Y is overwritten by the updated
vector y.
.TP 7
INCY - INTEGER.
On entry, INCY specifies the increment for the elements of
Y. INCY must not be zero.
Unchanged on exit.
