# NAG Library Routine Document

## 1Purpose

f06ecf (daxpy) adds a scaled real vector to an unscaled real vector.

## 2Specification

Fortran Interface
 Subroutine f06ecf ( n, x, incx, y, incy)
 Integer, Intent (In) :: n, incx, incy Real (Kind=nag_wp), Intent (In) :: alpha, x(*) Real (Kind=nag_wp), Intent (Inout) :: y(*)
#include <nagmk26.h>
 void f06ecf_ (const Integer *n, const double *alpha, const double x[], const Integer *incx, double y[], const Integer *incy)
The routine may be called by its BLAS name daxpy.

## 3Description

f06ecf (daxpy) performs the operation
 $y←αx+y$
where $x$ and $y$ are $n$-element real vectors scattered with stride incx and incy respectively, and $\alpha$ is a real scalar.

## 5Arguments

1:     $\mathbf{n}$ – IntegerInput
On entry: $n$, the number of elements in $x$ and $y$.
2:     $\mathbf{alpha}$ – Real (Kind=nag_wp)Input
On entry: the scalar $\alpha$.
3:     $\mathbf{x}\left(*\right)$ – Real (Kind=nag_wp) arrayInput
Note: the dimension 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 $n$-element vector $x$.
If ${\mathbf{incx}}>0$, ${x}_{\mathit{i}}$ must be stored in ${\mathbf{x}}\left(1+\left(\mathit{i}-1\right)×{\mathbf{incx}}\right)$, for $\mathit{i}=1,2,\dots ,{\mathbf{n}}$.
If ${\mathbf{incx}}<0$, ${x}_{\mathit{i}}$ must be stored in ${\mathbf{x}}\left(1-\left({\mathbf{n}}-\mathit{i}\right)×{\mathbf{incx}}\right)$, for $\mathit{i}=1,2,\dots ,{\mathbf{n}}$.
Intermediate elements of x are not referenced.
4:     $\mathbf{incx}$ – IntegerInput
On entry: the increment in the subscripts of x between successive elements of $x$.
5:     $\mathbf{y}\left(*\right)$ – Real (Kind=nag_wp) arrayInput/Output
Note: the dimension of the array y must be at least $\mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,1+\left({\mathbf{n}}-1\right)×\left|{\mathbf{incy}}\right|\right)$.
On entry: the $n$-element vector $y$.
If ${\mathbf{incy}}>0$, ${y}_{\mathit{i}}$ must be stored in ${\mathbf{y}}\left(1+\left(\mathit{i}-1\right)×{\mathbf{incy}}\right)$, for $\mathit{i}=1,2,\dots ,{\mathbf{n}}$.
If ${\mathbf{incy}}<0$, ${y}_{\mathit{i}}$ must be stored in ${\mathbf{y}}\left(1-\left({\mathbf{n}}-\mathit{i}\right)×{\mathbf{incy}}\right)$, for $\mathit{i}=1,2,\dots ,{\mathbf{n}}$.
Intermediate elements of y are not referenced.
On exit: the updated vector $y$ stored in the array elements used to supply the original vector $y$.
Intermediate elements of y are unchanged.
6:     $\mathbf{incy}$ – IntegerInput
On entry: the increment in the subscripts of y between successive elements of $y$.

None.
