# NAG Library Routine DocumentF06GCF (ZAXPY)

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

F06GCF (ZAXPY) adds a scaled complex vector to an unscaled complex vector.

## 2  Specification

 SUBROUTINE F06GCF ( N, ALPHA, X, INCX, Y, INCY)
 INTEGER N, INCX, INCY COMPLEX (KIND=nag_wp) ALPHA, X(*), Y(*)
The routine may be called by its BLAS name zaxpy.

## 3  Description

F06GCF (ZAXPY) performs the operation
 $y←αx+y$
where $x$ and $y$ are $n$-element complex vectors scattered with stride INCX and INCY respectively, and $\alpha$ is a complex scalar.

## 5  Parameters

1:     N – INTEGERInput
On entry: $n$, the number of elements in $x$ and $y$.
2:     ALPHA – COMPLEX (KIND=nag_wp)Input
On entry: the scalar $\alpha$.
3:     X($*$) – COMPLEX (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:     INCX – INTEGERInput
On entry: the increment in the subscripts of X between successive elements of $x$.
5:     Y($*$) – COMPLEX (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 $y$.
6:     INCY – INTEGERInput
On entry: the increment in the subscripts of Y between successive elements of $y$.
