## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine slarf (characterSIDE, integerM, integerN, real, dimension( * )V, integerINCV, realTAU, real, dimension( ldc, * )C, integerLDC, real, dimension( * )WORK)

SLARF applies an elementary reflector to a general rectangular matrix.

Purpose:

``` SLARF applies a real elementary reflector H to a real m by n matrix
C, from either the left or the right. H is represented in the form

H = I - tau * v * v**T

where tau is a real scalar and v is a real vector.

If tau = 0, then H is taken to be the unit matrix.
```

Parameters:

SIDE

```          SIDE is CHARACTER*1
= 'L': form  H * C
= 'R': form  C * H
```

M

```          M is INTEGER
The number of rows of the matrix C.
```

N

```          N is INTEGER
The number of columns of the matrix C.
```

V

```          V is REAL array, dimension
(1 + (M-1)*abs(INCV)) if SIDE = 'L'
or (1 + (N-1)*abs(INCV)) if SIDE = 'R'
The vector v in the representation of H. V is not used if
TAU = 0.
```

INCV

```          INCV is INTEGER
The increment between elements of v. INCV <> 0.
```

TAU

```          TAU is REAL
The value tau in the representation of H.
```

C

```          C is REAL array, dimension (LDC,N)
On entry, the m by n matrix C.
On exit, C is overwritten by the matrix H * C if SIDE = 'L',
or C * H if SIDE = 'R'.
```

LDC

```          LDC is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array C. LDC >= max(1,M).
```

WORK

```          WORK is REAL array, dimension
(N) if SIDE = 'L'
or (M) if SIDE = 'R'
```
