# mkl_?coosv

Solves a system of linear equations for a sparse matrix in the coordinate format (deprecated).

## Syntax

Description
This routine is deprecated. Use mkl_sparse_?_trsv from the
Intel® MKL
The
mkl_?coosv
routine solves a system of linear equations with matrix-vector operations for a sparse matrix in the coordinate format:
```

y

:=

alpha

*inv(

A

)*

x```
or
```

y

:=

alpha

*inv(

A

T

)*

x

,```
where:
alpha
is scalar,
x
and
y
are vectors,
A
is a sparse upper or lower triangular matrix with unit or non-unit main diagonal,
A
T
is the transpose of
A
.
This routine supports a coordinate format both with one-based indexing and zero-based indexing.
Input Parameters
Parameter descriptions are common for all implemented interfaces with the exception of data types that refer here to the FORTRAN 77 standard types. Data types specific to the different interfaces are described in the section
"Interfaces"
below.
transa
CHARACTER*1
.
Specifies the system of linear equations.
If
transa
=
'N'

'n'
, then
y
:=
alpha
*inv(
A
)*
x
If
transa
=
'T'
or
't'
or
'C'
or
'c'
, then
y
:=
alpha
*inv(
A
T
)*
x
,
m
INTEGER
.
Number of rows of the matrix
A
.
