# NAG Library Function Documentnag_dsyr (f16ppc)

## 1  Purpose

nag_dsyr (f16ppc) performs a rank-1 update on a real symmetric matrix.

## 2  Specification

 #include #include
 void nag_dsyr (Nag_OrderType order, Nag_UploType uplo, Integer n, double alpha, const double x[], Integer incx, double beta, double a[], Integer pda, NagError *fail)

## 3  Description

nag_dsyr (f16ppc) performs the symmetric rank-1 update operation
 $A←αxxT+βA,$
where $A$ is an $n$ by $n$ real symmetric matrix, $x$ is an $n$-element real vector, while $\alpha$ and $\beta$ are real scalars.

## 5  Arguments

1:     orderNag_OrderTypeInput
On entry: the order argument specifies the two-dimensional storage scheme being used, i.e., row-major ordering or column-major ordering. C language defined storage is specified by ${\mathbf{order}}=\mathrm{Nag_RowMajor}$. See Section 3.2.1.3 in the Essential Introduction for a more detailed explanation of the use of this argument.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{order}}=\mathrm{Nag_RowMajor}$ or $\mathrm{Nag_ColMajor}$.
2:     uploNag_UploTypeInput
On entry: specifies whether the upper or lower triangular part of $A$ is stored.
${\mathbf{uplo}}=\mathrm{Nag_Upper}$
The upper triangular part of $A$ is stored.
${\mathbf{uplo}}=\mathrm{Nag_Lower}$
The lower triangular part of $A$ is stored.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{uplo}}=\mathrm{Nag_Upper}$ or $\mathrm{Nag_Lower}$.
3:     nIntegerInput
On entry: $n$, the order of the matrix $A$.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{n}}\ge 0$.
On entry: the scalar $\alpha$.
5:     x[$\mathit{dim}$]const doubleInput
Note: the dimension, dim, of the array x must be at least $\mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,1+\left({\mathbf{n}}-1\right)\left|{\mathbf{incx}}\right|\right)$.
On entry: the vector $x$.
6:     incxIntegerInput
On entry: the increment in the subscripts of x between successive elements of $x$.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{incx}}\ne 0$.
On entry: the scalar $\beta$.
8:     a[$\mathit{dim}$]doubleInput/Output
Note: the dimension, dim, of the array a must be at least $\mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,{\mathbf{pda}}×{\mathbf{n}}\right)$.
On entry: the $n$ by $n$ symmetric matrix $A$.
If ${\mathbf{order}}=\mathrm{Nag_ColMajor}$, ${A}_{ij}$ is stored in ${\mathbf{a}}\left[\left(j-1\right)×{\mathbf{pda}}+i-1\right]$.
If ${\mathbf{order}}=\mathrm{Nag_RowMajor}$, ${A}_{ij}$ is stored in ${\mathbf{a}}\left[\left(i-1\right)×{\mathbf{pda}}+j-1\right]$.
If ${\mathbf{uplo}}=\mathrm{Nag_Upper}$, the upper triangular part of $A$ must be stored and the elements of the array below the diagonal are not referenced.
If ${\mathbf{uplo}}=\mathrm{Nag_Lower}$, the lower triangular part of $A$ must be stored and the elements of the array above the diagonal are not referenced.
On exit: the updated matrix $A$.
9:     pdaIntegerInput
On entry: the stride separating row or column elements (depending on the value of order) of the matrix $A$ in the array a.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{pda}}\ge \mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,{\mathbf{n}}\right)$.
10:   failNagError *Input/Output
The NAG error argument (see Section 3.6 in the Essential Introduction).

## 6  Error Indicators and Warnings

On entry, argument $⟨\mathit{\text{value}}⟩$ had an illegal value.
NE_INT
On entry, ${\mathbf{incx}}=⟨\mathit{\text{value}}⟩$.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{incx}}\ne 0$.
On entry, ${\mathbf{n}}=⟨\mathit{\text{value}}⟩$.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{n}}\ge 0$.
NE_INT_2
On entry, ${\mathbf{pda}}=⟨\mathit{\text{value}}⟩$, ${\mathbf{n}}=⟨\mathit{\text{value}}⟩$.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{pda}}\ge \mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,{\mathbf{n}}\right)$.

## 7  Accuracy

The BLAS standard requires accurate implementations which avoid unnecessary over/underflow (see Section 2.7 of Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms Technical (BLAST) Forum (2001)).

Not applicable.

None.

## 10  Example

Perform rank-1 update of real symmetric matrix $A$ using vector $x$:
 $A ← A - x xT ,$
where $A$ is the $4$ by $4$ matrix given by
 $A = 4.30 4.00 0.40 -0.28 4.00 -4.87 0.31 0.07 0.40 0.31 -8.02 -5.95 -0.28 0.07 -5.95 0.12$
and
 $x = 2.0,2.0,0.2,-0.14T .$
