# man pslauu2 (Fonctions bibliothèques) - compute the product U * U' or L' * L, where the triangular factor U or L is stored in the upper or lower triangular part of the matrix sub( A ) = A(IA:IA+N-1,JA:JA+N-1)

## NAME

PSLAUU2 - compute the product U * U' or L' * L, where the triangular factor U or L is stored in the upper or lower triangular part of the matrix sub( A ) = A(IA:IA+N-1,JA:JA+N-1)

## SYNOPSIS

SUBROUTINE PSLAUU2(
UPLO, N, A, IA, JA, DESCA )
CHARACTER UPLO
INTEGER IA, JA, N
INTEGER DESCA( * )
REAL A( * )

## PURPOSE

PSLAUU2 computes the product U * U' or L' * L, where the triangular factor U or L is stored in the upper or lower triangular part of the matrix sub( A ) = A(IA:IA+N-1,JA:JA+N-1).

If UPLO = 'U' or 'u' then the upper triangle of the result is stored, overwriting the factor U in sub( A ).

If UPLO = 'L' or 'l' then the lower triangle of the result is stored, overwriting the factor L in sub( A ).

This is the unblocked form of the algorithm, calling Level 2 BLAS. No communication is performed by this routine, the matrix to operate on should be strictly local to one process.

Notes

=====

Each global data object is described by an associated description vector. This vector stores the information required to establish the mapping between an object element and its corresponding process and memory location.

Let A be a generic term for any 2D block cyclicly distributed array. Such a global array has an associated description vector DESCA. In the following comments, the character _ should be read as "of the global array".

NOTATION STORED IN EXPLANATION

--------------- -------------- -------------------------------------- DTYPE_A(global) DESCA( DTYPE_ )The descriptor type. In this case, DTYPE_A = 1.

CTXT_A (global) DESCA( CTXT_ ) The BLACS context handle, indicating the BLACS process grid A is distribu- ted over. The context itself is glo- bal, but the handle (the integer value) may vary.

M_A (global) DESCA( M_ ) The number of rows in the global array A.

N_A (global) DESCA( N_ ) The number of columns in the global array A.

MB_A (global) DESCA( MB_ ) The blocking factor used to distribute the rows of the array.

NB_A (global) DESCA( NB_ ) The blocking factor used to distribute the columns of the array.

RSRC_A (global) DESCA( RSRC_ ) The process row over which the first row of the array A is distributed. CSRC_A (global) DESCA( CSRC_ ) The process column over which the first column of the array A is distributed.

LLD_A (local) DESCA( LLD_ ) The leading dimension of the local array. LLD_A >= MAX(1,LOCr(M_A)).

Let K be the number of rows or columns of a distributed matrix, and assume that its process grid has dimension p x q.

LOCr( K ) denotes the number of elements of K that a process would receive if K were distributed over the p processes of its process column.

Similarly, LOCc( K ) denotes the number of elements of K that a process would receive if K were distributed over the q processes of its process row.

The values of LOCr() and LOCc() may be determined via a call to the ScaLAPACK tool function, NUMROC:

LOCr( M ) = NUMROC( M, MB_A, MYROW, RSRC_A, NPROW ), LOCc( N ) = NUMROC( N, NB_A, MYCOL, CSRC_A, NPCOL ). An upper bound for these quantities may be computed by:

LOCr( M ) <= ceil( ceil(M/MB_A)/NPROW )*MB_A

LOCc( N ) <= ceil( ceil(N/NB_A)/NPCOL )*NB_A

## ARGUMENTS

UPLO (global input) CHARACTER*1
Specifies whether the triangular factor stored in the matrix sub( A ) is upper or lower triangular:

= 'U': Upper triangular,

= 'L': Lower triangular.
N (global input) INTEGER
The number of rows and columns to be operated on, i.e. the order of the order of the triangular factor U or L. N >= 0.
A (local input/local output) REAL pointer into the
local memory to an array of dimension (LLD_A, LOCc(JA+N-1)). On entry, the local pieces of the triangular factor L or U. On exit, if UPLO = 'U', the upper triangle of the distributed matrix sub( A ) is overwritten with the upper triangle of the product U * U'; if UPLO = 'L', the lower triangle of sub( A ) is overwritten with the lower triangle of the product L' * L.
IA (global input) INTEGER
The row index in the global array A indicating the first row of sub( A ).
JA (global input) INTEGER
The column index in the global array A indicating the first column of sub( A ).
DESCA (global and local input) INTEGER array of dimension DLEN_.
The array descriptor for the distributed matrix A.
