1  Purpose

nag_dtrsm (f16yjc) solves a system of equations given as a real triangular matrix with multiple right-hand sides.

2  Specification

#include <nag.h>
#include <nagf16.h>
void  nag_dtrsm (Nag_OrderType order, Nag_SideType side, Nag_UploType uplo, Nag_TransType trans, Nag_DiagType diag, Integer m, Integer n, double alpha, const double a[], Integer pda, double b[], Integer pdb, NagError *fail)

3  Description

nag_dtrsm (f16yjc) performs one of the matrix-matrix operations
BαA-1B, BαA-TB, BαBA-1  or BαBA-T,
where A is a real triangular matrix, B is an m by n real matrix, and α is a real scalar. A-T denotes A-T or equivalently A-T.

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 order=Nag_RowMajor. See Section in the Essential Introduction for a more detailed explanation of the use of this argument.
Constraint: order=Nag_RowMajor or Nag_ColMajor.
2:     sideNag_SideTypeInput
On entry: specifies whether B is operated on from the left or the right.
B is pre-multiplied from the left.
B is post-multiplied from the right.
Constraint: side=Nag_LeftSide or Nag_RightSide.
3:     uploNag_UploTypeInput
On entry: specifies whether A is upper or lower triangular.
A is upper triangular.
A is lower triangular.
Constraint: uplo=Nag_Upper or Nag_Lower.
4:     transNag_TransTypeInput
On entry: specifies the operation to be performed.
trans=Nag_Trans or Nag_ConjTrans and side=Nag_LeftSide
trans=Nag_NoTrans and side=Nag_LeftSide
trans=Nag_Trans or Nag_ConjTrans and side=Nag_RightSide
trans=Nag_NoTrans and side=Nag_RightSide
Constraint: trans=Nag_NoTrans, Nag_Trans or Nag_ConjTrans.
5:     diagNag_DiagTypeInput
On entry: specifies whether A has nonunit or unit diagonal elements.
The diagonal elements are stored explicitly.
The diagonal elements are assumed to be 1 and are not referenced.
Constraint: diag=Nag_NonUnitDiag or Nag_UnitDiag.
6:     mIntegerInput
On entry: m, the number of rows of the matrix B; the order of A if side=Nag_LeftSide.
Constraint: m0.
7:     nIntegerInput
On entry: n, the number of columns of the matrix B; the order of A if side=Nag_RightSide.
Constraint: n0.
8:     alphadoubleInput
On entry: the scalar α.
9:     a[dim]const doubleInput
Note: the dimension, dim, of the array a must be at least
  • max1,pda×m when side=Nag_LeftSide;
  • max1,pda×n when side=Nag_RightSide.
On entry: the triangular matrix A; A is m by m if side=Nag_LeftSide, or n by n if side=Nag_RightSide.
If order=Nag_ColMajor, Aij is stored in a[j-1×pda+i-1].
If order=Nag_RowMajor, Aij is stored in a[i-1×pda+j-1].
If uplo=Nag_Upper, A is upper triangular and the elements of the array corresponding to the lower triangular part of A are not referenced.
If uplo=Nag_Lower, A is lower triangular and the elements of the array corresponding to the upper triangular part of A are not referenced.
If diag=Nag_UnitDiag, the diagonal elements of A are assumed to be 1, and are not referenced.
10:   pdaIntegerInput
On entry: the stride separating row or column elements (depending on the value of order) of the matrix A in the array a.
  • if side=Nag_LeftSide, pdamax1,m;
  • if side=Nag_RightSide, pdamax1,n.
11:   b[dim]doubleInput/Output
Note: the dimension, dim, of the array b must be at least
  • max1,pdb×n when order=Nag_ColMajor;
  • max1,m×pdb when order=Nag_RowMajor.
If order=Nag_ColMajor, Bij is stored in b[j-1×pdb+i-1].
If order=Nag_RowMajor, Bij is stored in b[i-1×pdb+j-1].
On entry: the m by n matrix B.
If alpha=0, b need not be set.
On exit: the updated matrix B.
12:   pdbIntegerInput
On entry: the stride separating row or column elements (depending on the value of order) in the array b.
  • if order=Nag_ColMajor, pdbmax1,m;
  • if order=Nag_RowMajor, pdbmax1,n.
13:   failNagError *Input/Output
The NAG error argument (see Section 3.6 in the Essential Introduction).

An internal error has occurred in this function. Check the function call and any array sizes. If the call is correct then please contact NAG for assistance.

7  Accuracy

The BLAS standard requires accurate implementations which avoid unnecessary over/underflow (see Section 2.7 of The BLAS Technical Forum Standard (2001)).

8  Further Comments

No test for singularity or near-singularity of A is included in nag_dtrsm (f16yjc). Such tests must be performed before calling this function.

9  Example

Premultiply real 4 by 2 matrix B by inverse of lower triangular 4 by 4 matrix A, BA-1B (or solve AX=B and return result in B), where
A = 4.30 -3.96 -4.87 0.40 0.31 -8.02 -0.27 0.07 -5.95 0.12
B = -12.90 -21.50 16.75 14.93 -17.55 6.33 -11.04 8.09 .
