# NAG Library Routine DocumentF16JNF (BLAS_DMAX_VAL)

Note:  before using this routine, please read the Users' Note for your implementation to check the interpretation of bold italicised terms and other implementation-dependent details.

## 1  Purpose

F16JNF (BLAS_DMAX_VAL) computes the largest component of a real vector, along with the index of that component.

## 2  Specification

 SUBROUTINE F16JNF ( N, X, INCX, K, R)
 INTEGER N, INCX, K REAL (KIND=nag_wp) X(1+(N-1)*ABS(INCX)), R
The routine may be called by its BLAST name blas_dmax_val.

## 3  Description

F16JNF (BLAS_DMAX_VAL) computes the largest component, $r$, of an $n$-element real vector $x$, and determines the smallest index, $k$, such that
 $r=xk=maxjxj.$

## 5  Parameters

1:     $\mathrm{N}$ – INTEGERInput
On entry: $n$, the number of elements in $x$.
2:     $\mathrm{X}\left(1+\left({\mathbf{N}}-1\right)×\left|{\mathbf{INCX}}\right|\right)$ – REAL (KIND=nag_wp) arrayInput
On entry: the vector $x$. Element ${x}_{\mathit{i}}$ is stored in ${\mathbf{X}}\left(\left(\mathit{i}-1\right)×\left|{\mathbf{INCX}}\right|+1\right)$, for $\mathit{i}=1,2,\dots ,n$.
3:     $\mathrm{INCX}$ – INTEGERInput
On entry: the increment in the subscripts of X between successive elements of $x$.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{INCX}}\ne 0$.
4:     $\mathrm{K}$ – INTEGEROutput
On exit: $k$, the index, from the set $\left\{1,1+\left|{\mathbf{INCX}}\right|,\dots ,1+\left({\mathbf{N}}-1\right)×\left|{\mathbf{INCX}}\right|\right\}$, of the largest component of $x$. If ${\mathbf{N}}\le 0$ on input then K is returned as $0$.
5:     $\mathrm{R}$ – REAL (KIND=nag_wp)Output
On exit: $r$, the largest component of $x$. If ${\mathbf{N}}\le 0$ on input then R is returned as $0.0$.

## 6  Error Indicators and Warnings

If ${\mathbf{INCX}}=0$, an error message is printed and program execution is terminated.

## 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

This example computes the largest component and index of that component for the vector
 $x= 1,10,11,-2,9T .$
