.TH STPSV 1 "November 2006" "BLAS routine" "BLAS routine" .SH NAME STPSV - one of the systems of equations A*x = b, or A\(aq*x = b, .SH SYNOPSIS .TP 46 SUBROUTINE STPSV(UPLO,TRANS,DIAG,N,AP,X,INCX) .TP 46 .ti +4 INTEGER INCX,N .TP 46 .ti +4 CHARACTER DIAG,TRANS,UPLO .TP 46 .ti +4 REAL AP(*),X(*) .SH PURPOSE STPSV solves one of the systems of equations where b and x are n element vectors and A is an n by n unit, or non-unit, upper or lower triangular matrix, supplied in packed form. No test for singularity or near-singularity is included in this routine. Such tests must be performed before calling this routine. .SH ARGUMENTS .TP 7 UPLO - CHARACTER*1. On entry, UPLO specifies whether the matrix is an upper or lower triangular matrix as follows: UPLO = \(aqU\(aq or \(aqu\(aq A is an upper triangular matrix. UPLO = \(aqL\(aq or \(aql\(aq A is a lower triangular matrix. Unchanged on exit. .TP 7 TRANS - CHARACTER*1. On entry, TRANS specifies the equations to be solved as follows: TRANS = \(aqN\(aq or \(aqn\(aq A*x = b. TRANS = \(aqT\(aq or \(aqt\(aq A\(aq*x = b. TRANS = \(aqC\(aq or \(aqc\(aq A\(aq*x = b. Unchanged on exit. .TP 7 DIAG - CHARACTER*1. On entry, DIAG specifies whether or not A is unit triangular as follows: DIAG = \(aqU\(aq or \(aqu\(aq A is assumed to be unit triangular. DIAG = \(aqN\(aq or \(aqn\(aq A is not assumed to be unit triangular. 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 AP - REAL array of DIMENSION at least ( ( n*( n + 1 ) )/2 ). Before entry with UPLO = \(aqU\(aq or \(aqu\(aq, the array AP must contain the upper triangular matrix packed sequentially, column by column, so that AP( 1 ) contains a( 1, 1 ), AP( 2 ) and AP( 3 ) contain a( 1, 2 ) and a( 2, 2 ) respectively, and so on. Before entry with UPLO = \(aqL\(aq or \(aql\(aq, the array AP must contain the lower triangular matrix packed sequentially, column by column, so that AP( 1 ) contains a( 1, 1 ), AP( 2 ) and AP( 3 ) contain a( 2, 1 ) and a( 3, 1 ) respectively, and so on. Note that when DIAG = \(aqU\(aq or \(aqu\(aq, the diagonal elements of A are not referenced, but are assumed to be unity. Unchanged on exit. .TP 7 X - REAL array of dimension at least ( 1 + ( n - 1 )*abs( INCX ) ). Before entry, the incremented array X must contain the n element right-hand side vector b. On exit, X is overwritten with the solution vector x. .TP 7 INCX - INTEGER. On entry, INCX specifies the increment for the elements of X. INCX must not be zero. Unchanged on exit.
