## 5Arguments

1: $\mathbf{order}$Nag_OrderType Input
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 3.1.3 in the Introduction to the NAG Library CL Interface for a more detailed explanation of the use of this argument.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{order}}=\mathrm{Nag_RowMajor}$ or $\mathrm{Nag_ColMajor}$.
2: $\mathbf{trans}$Nag_TransType Input
On entry: specifies the operation to be performed.
${\mathbf{trans}}=\mathrm{Nag_NoTrans}$
$B←A$.
${\mathbf{trans}}=\mathrm{Nag_Trans}$
$B←{A}^{\mathrm{T}}$.
${\mathbf{trans}}=\mathrm{Nag_ConjTrans}$
$B←{A}^{\mathrm{H}}$.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{trans}}=\mathrm{Nag_NoTrans}$, $\mathrm{Nag_Trans}$ or $\mathrm{Nag_ConjTrans}$.
3: $\mathbf{m}$Integer Input
On entry: $m$, the number of rows of the matrix $A$.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{m}}\ge 0$.
4: $\mathbf{n}$Integer Input
On entry: $n$, the number of columns of the matrix $A$.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{n}}\ge 0$.
5: $\mathbf{a}\left[\mathit{dim}\right]$const Complex Input
Note: the dimension, dim, of the array a must be at least
• $\mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,{\mathbf{pda}}×{\mathbf{n}}\right)$ when ${\mathbf{order}}=\mathrm{Nag_ColMajor}$;
• $\mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,{\mathbf{m}}×{\mathbf{pda}}\right)$ when ${\mathbf{order}}=\mathrm{Nag_RowMajor}$.
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 ${\mathbf{a}}\left[\left(i-1\right)×{\mathbf{pda}}+j-1\right]$.
On entry: the $m×n$ general matrix $A$.

Constraints:
• if ${\mathbf{order}}=\mathrm{Nag_ColMajor}$, ${\mathbf{pda}}\ge \mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,{\mathbf{m}}\right)$;

7: $\mathbf{b}\left[\mathit{dim}\right]$Complex Output
Note: the dimension, dim, of the array b must be at least

• $\mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,{\mathbf{pdb}}×{\mathbf{m}}\right)$ when ${\mathbf{trans}}=\mathrm{Nag_Trans}$ or $\mathrm{Nag_ConjTrans}$ and ${\mathbf{order}}=\mathrm{Nag_ColMajor}$;
• $\mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,{\mathbf{n}}×{\mathbf{pdb}}\right)$ when ${\mathbf{trans}}=\mathrm{Nag_Trans}$ or $\mathrm{Nag_ConjTrans}$ and ${\mathbf{order}}=\mathrm{Nag_RowMajor}$.
If ${\mathbf{order}}=\mathrm{Nag_ColMajor}$, ${B}_{ij}$ is stored in ${\mathbf{b}}\left[\left(j-1\right)×{\mathbf{pdb}}+i-1\right]$.
If ${\mathbf{order}}=\mathrm{Nag_RowMajor}$, ${B}_{ij}$ is stored in ${\mathbf{b}}\left[\left(i-1\right)×{\mathbf{pdb}}+j-1\right]$.

## 7Accuracy

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

## 8Parallelism and Performance

f16tfc is not threaded in any implementation.

None.

## 10Example

This example copies the transpose of a complex valued $4×3$ matrix, $A$, to the matrix $B$.
