Description

The ?herk routines perform a rank-k matrix-matrix operation using a general matrix A and a Hermitian matrix C. The operation is defined as

C := alpha*A*AH + beta*C,

or

C := alpha*AH*A + beta*C,

where:

alpha and beta are real scalars,

C is an n-by-n Hermitian matrix,

A is an n-by-k matrix in the first case and a k-by-n matrix in the second case.

Input Parameters

Layout

Specifies whether two-dimensional array storage is row-major (CblasRowMajor) or column-major (CblasColMajor).

uplo

Specifies whether the upper or lower triangular part of the array c is used.

If uplo = CblasUpper, then the upper triangular part of the array c is used.

If uplo = CblasLower, then the low triangular part of the array c is used.

trans

Specifies the operation:

if trans=CblasNoTrans, then C := alpha*A*AH + beta*C;

if trans=CblasConjTrans, then C := alpha*AH*A + beta*C.

n

Specifies the order of the matrix C. The value of n must be at least zero.

k

With trans=CblasNoTrans, k specifies the number of columns of the matrix A, and with trans=CblasConjTrans, k specifies the number of rows of the matrix A.

The value of k must be at least zero.

alpha

Specifies the scalar alpha.

a
 

trans=CblasNoTrans

trans=CblasConjTrans

Layout = CblasColMajor

Array, size lda*k.

Before entry, the leading n-by-k part of the array a must contain the matrix A.

Array, size lda*n.

Before entry, the leading k-by-n part of the array a must contain the matrix A.

Layout = CblasRowMajor

Array, size lda*n.

Before entry, the leading k-by-n part of the array a must contain the matrix A.

Array, size lda*k.

Before entry, the leading n-by-k part of the array a must contain the matrix A.

lda
 

trans=CblasNoTrans

trans=CblasConjTrans

Layout = CblasColMajor

lda must be at least max(1, n).

lda must be at least max(1, k)

Layout = CblasRowMajor

lda must be at least max(1, k)

lda must be at least max(1, n).

beta

Specifies the scalar beta.

c

Array, size ldc by n.

Before entry with uplo = CblasUpper, the leading n-by-n upper triangular part of the array c must contain the upper triangular part of the Hermitian matrix and the strictly lower triangular part of c is not referenced.

Before entry with uplo = CblasLower, the leading n-by-n lower triangular part of the array c must contain the lower triangular part of the Hermitian matrix and the strictly upper triangular part of c is not referenced.

The imaginary parts of the diagonal elements need not be set, they are assumed to be zero.

ldc

Specifies the leading dimension of c as declared in the calling (sub)program. The value of ldc must be at least max(1, n).

Output Parameters

c

With uplo = CblasUpper, the upper triangular part of the array c is overwritten by the upper triangular part of the updated matrix.

With uplo = CblasLower, the lower triangular part of the array c is overwritten by the lower triangular part of the updated matrix.

The imaginary parts of the diagonal elements are set to zero.
