NAME
CHER  performs the hermitian rank 1 operation A := alpha*x*conjg( xaq ) + A,SYNOPSIS
 SUBROUTINE CHER(UPLO,N,ALPHA,X,INCX,A,LDA)
 REAL ALPHA
 INTEGER INCX,LDA,N
 CHARACTER UPLO
 COMPLEX A(LDA,*),X(*)
PURPOSE
CHER performs the hermitian rank 1 operation
where alpha is a real scalar, x is an n element vector and A is an
n by n hermitian matrix.
ARGUMENTS
 UPLO  CHARACTER*1.

On entry, UPLO specifies whether the upper or lower
triangular part of the array A is to be referenced as
follows:
UPLO = aqUaq or aquaq Only the upper triangular part of A is to be referenced.
UPLO = aqLaq or aqlaq Only the lower triangular part of A is to be referenced.
Unchanged on exit.
 N  INTEGER.
 On entry, N specifies the order of the matrix A. N must be at least zero. Unchanged on exit.
 ALPHA  REAL .
 On entry, ALPHA specifies the scalar alpha. Unchanged on exit.
 X  COMPLEX array of dimension at least
 ( 1 + ( n  1 )*abs( INCX ) ). Before entry, the incremented array X must contain the n element vector x. Unchanged on exit.
 INCX  INTEGER.
 On entry, INCX specifies the increment for the elements of X. INCX must not be zero. Unchanged on exit.
 A  COMPLEX array of DIMENSION ( LDA, n ).
 Before entry with UPLO = aqUaq or aquaq, the leading n by n upper triangular part of the array A must contain the upper triangular part of the hermitian matrix and the strictly lower triangular part of A is not referenced. On exit, the upper triangular part of the array A is overwritten by the upper triangular part of the updated matrix. Before entry with UPLO = aqLaq or aqlaq, the leading n by n lower triangular part of the array A must contain the lower triangular part of the hermitian matrix and the strictly upper triangular part of A is not referenced. On exit, the lower triangular part of the array A is overwritten by the lower triangular part of the updated matrix. Note that the imaginary parts of the diagonal elements need not be set, they are assumed to be zero, and on exit they are set to zero.
 LDA  INTEGER.
 On entry, LDA specifies the first dimension of A as declared in the calling (sub) program. LDA must be at least max( 1, n ). Unchanged on exit.
