## STRSM, DTRSM, CTRSM, or ZTRSM Subroutine

### Purpose

Solves certain matrix equations.

### Library

BLAS Library (libblas.a)

### FORTRAN Syntax

```SUBROUTINE STRSM(SIDE, UPLO, TRANSA, DIAG,
M, N, ALPHA, A, LDA, B, LDB)
CHARACTER*1 SIDE,UPLO,TRANSA,DIAG
INTEGER M,N,LDA,LDB
REAL ALPHA
REAL A(LDA,*), B(LDB,*)```
```SUBROUTINE DTRSM(SIDE, UPLO, TRANSA, DIAG,
M, N, ALPHA, A, LDA, B, LDB)
CHARACTER*1 SIDE,UPLO,TRANSA,DIAG
INTEGER M,N,LDA,LDB
DOUBLE PRECISION ALPHA
DOUBLE PRECISION A(LDA,*), B(LDB,*)```
```SUBROUTINE CTRSM(SIDE, UPLO, TRANSA, DIAG,
M, N, ALPHA, A, LDA, B, LDB)
CHARACTER*1 SIDE,UPLO,TRANSA,DIAG
INTEGER M,N,LDA,LDB
COMPLEX ALPHA
COMPLEX A(LDA,*), B(LDB,*)```
```SUBROUTINE ZTRSM(SIDE, UPLO, TRANSA, DIAG,
M, N, ALPHA, A, LDA, B, LDB)
CHARACTER*1 SIDE,UPLO,TRANSA,DIAG
INTEGER M,N,LDA,LDB

COMPLEX*16 A(LDA,*), B(LDB,*)```

### Description

The STRSM, DTRSM, CTRSM, or ZTRSM subroutine solves one of the matrix equations:

• op( A ) * X = alpha * B
• X * op( A ) = alpha * B

where alpha is a scalar, X and B are M by N matrices, A is a unit, or non-unit, upper or lower triangular matrix, and op( A ) is either op( A ) = A or op( A ) = A'. The matrix X is overwritten on B.

### Parameters

SIDE On entry, SIDE specifies whether op( A ) appears on the left or right of X as follows:
 SIDE = 'L' or 'l' op( A ) * X = alpha * B SIDE = 'R' or 'r' X * op( A ) = alpha * B

Unchanged on exit.

UPLO On entry, UPLO specifies whether the matrix A is an upper or lower triangular matrix as follows:
 UPLO = 'U' or 'u' A is an upper triangular matrix. UPLO = 'L' or 'l' A is a lower triangular matrix.

Unchanged on exit.

TRANSA On entry, TRANSA specifies the form of op( A ) to be used in the matrix multiplication as follows:
 TRANSA = 'N' or 'n' op( A ) = A TRANSA = 'T' or 't' op( A ) = A' TRANSA = 'C' or 'c' op( A ) = A'

Unchanged on exit.

DIAG On entry, DIAG specifies whether or not A is unit triangular as follows:
 DIAG = 'U' or 'u' A is assumed to be unit triangular. DIAG = 'N' or 'n' A is not assumed to be unit triangular.

Unchanged on exit.

M On entry, M specifies the number of rows of B; M must be at least 0; unchanged on exit.
N On entry, N specifies the number of columns of B; N must be at least 0; unchanged on exit.
ALPHA On entry, ALPHA specifies the scalar alpha. When alpha is 0 then A is not referenced and B need not be set before entry; unchanged on exit.
A An array of dimension ( LDA, k ), where k is M when SIDE = 'L' or 'l' and is N when SIDE = 'R' or 'r'. On entry with UPLO = 'U' or 'u', the leading k by k upper triangular part of the array A must contain the upper triangular matrix and the strictly lower triangular part of A is not referenced; on entry with UPLO = 'L' or 'l', the leading k by k lower triangular part of the array A must contain the lower triangular matrix and the strictly upper triangular part of A is not referenced. When DIAG = 'U' or 'u', the diagonal elements of A are not referenced, but are assumed to be unity; unchanged on exit.
LDA On entry, LDA specifies the first dimension of A as declared in the calling (sub) program. When SIDE = 'L' or 'l', LDA must be at least max( 1, M ); when SIDE = 'R' or 'r', LDA must be at least max( 1, N ); unchanged on exit.
B An array of dimension ( LDB, N ); on entry, the leading M by N part of the array B must contain the right-hand side matrix B, and on exit is overwritten by the solution matrix X.
LDB On entry, LDB specifies the first dimension of B as declared in the calling (sub) program. LDB must be at least max( 1, M ); unchanged on exit.
