CHPR(1)                          BLAS routine                          CHPR(1)



NAME
       CHPR - performs the hermitian rank 1 operation   A := alpha*x*conjg( x'
       ) + A,

SYNOPSIS
       SUBROUTINE CHPR(UPLO,N,ALPHA,X,INCX,AP)

           REAL                                ALPHA

           INTEGER                             INCX,N

           CHARACTER                           UPLO

           COMPLEX                             AP(*),X(*)

PURPOSE
       CHPR    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, supplied in packed form.


ARGUMENTS
       UPLO   - CHARACTER*1.
              On entry, UPLO specifies whether the upper or lower triangular
              part of the matrix A is supplied in the packed array AP as
              follows:

              UPLO = 'U' or 'u'   The upper triangular part of A is supplied
              in AP.

              UPLO = 'L' or 'l'   The lower triangular part of A is supplied
              in AP.

              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.

       AP     - COMPLEX          array of DIMENSION at least
              ( ( n*( n + 1 ) )/2 ).  Before entry with  UPLO = 'U' or 'u',
              the array AP must contain the upper triangular part of the
              hermitian matrix packed sequentially, column by column, so that
              AP( 1 ) contains a( 1, 1 ), AP( 2 ) and AP( 3 ) contain a( 1, 2
              ) and a( 2, 2 ) respectively, and so on. On exit, the array AP
              is overwritten by the upper triangular part of the updated
              matrix.  Before entry with UPLO = 'L' or 'l', the array AP must
              contain the lower triangular part of the hermitian matrix packed
              sequentially, column by column, so that AP( 1 ) contains a( 1, 1
              ), AP( 2 ) and AP( 3 ) contain a( 2, 1 ) and a( 3, 1 )
              respectively, and so on. On exit, the array AP 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.
