Description
The
p?her2k
routines perform a distributed matrix-matrix operation defined as
`sub(C):=alpha*sub(A)*conjg(sub(B)')+ conjg(alpha)*sub(B)*conjg(sub(A)')+beta*sub(C),`
or
`sub(C):=alpha*conjg(sub(A)')*sub(A)+ conjg(alpha)*conjg(sub(B)')*sub(A) + beta*sub(C),`
where:
alpha
and
beta
are scalars,
sub(
C
)
is an
n
-by-
n
Hermitian distributed matrix,
sub(
C
) = C(
ic
:
ic
+
n
-1,
jc
:
jc
+
n
-1)
.
sub(
A

is a distributed matrix,
sub(

+
n
-1,
ja
:

, if
trans

or

, and
sub(
A
) =
A
(
ia
:

-1)
otherwise.
sub(
B
)
is a distributed matrix,
sub(
B
) =
B
(
ib
:
ib
+
n
-1,
jb
:
jb
+
k
-1)
, if

Input Parameters
uplo
(global) Specifies whether the upper or lower triangular part of the Hermitian distributed matrix
sub(
C
)
is used:
If
uplo
=
'U'
or
'u'
, then the upper triangular part of the
sub(
C
)
is used.
If
uplo
=
'L'
or
'l'
, then the low triangular part of the
sub(
C
)
is used.
trans
(global) Specifies the operation:
if
trans
=
'N'
or
'n'
, then
sub(
C
) :=
alpha
*sub(
A
)*conjg(sub(
B
)')+ conjg(
alpha
)*sub(
B
)*conjg(sub(
A
)') +
beta
*sub(
C
)
;
if
trans
=
'C'
or
'c'
, then
sub(
C
) :=
alpha
*conjg(sub(
A
