# LinearAlgebraOperationsExtensions.SymmetricRankUpdate<T>(ILinearAlgebraOperations<T>, MatrixTriangle, TransposeOperation, Int32, Int32, T, ReadOnlySpan2D<T>, T, Span2D<T>) Method

Performs one of the symmetric rank k operations
C := alpha*A*A^{T} + beta*C,
or
C := alpha*A^{T}*A + beta*C,
where alpha and beta are scalars, C is an n by n symmetric matrix
and A is an n by k matrix in the first case and a k by n matrix
in the second case.

#### Parameters

- operations ILinearAlgebraOperations<T>
- uplo MatrixTriangle
On entry, UPLO specifies whether the upper or lower triangular part of the array C is to be referenced as follows: UPLO = 'U' or 'u' Only the upper triangular part of C is to be referenced. UPLO = 'L' or 'l' Only the lower triangular part of C is to be referenced.

- trans TransposeOperation
On entry, TRANS specifies the operation to be performed as follows: TRANS = 'N' or 'n' C := alpha*A*A

^{T}+ beta*C. TRANS = 'T' or 't' C := alpha*A^{T}*A + beta*C. TRANS = 'C' or 'c' C := alpha*A^{T}*A + beta*C.- n Int32
On entry, N specifies the order of the matrix C. N must be at least zero.

- k Int32
On entry with TRANS = 'N' or 'n', K specifies the number of columns of the matrix A, and on entry with TRANS = 'T' or 't' or 'C' or 'c', K specifies the number of rows of the matrix A. K must be at least zero.

- alpha T
ALPHA is DOUBLE PRECISION. On entry, ALPHA specifies the scalar alpha.

- a ReadOnlySpan2D<T>
A is DOUBLE PRECISION array of DIMENSION ( LDA, ka ), where ka is k when TRANS = 'N' or 'n', and is n otherwise. Before entry with TRANS = 'N' or 'n', the leading n by k part of the array A must contain the matrix A, otherwise the leading k by n part of the array A must contain the matrix A.

On entry, LDA specifies the first dimension of A as declared in the calling (sub) program. When TRANS = 'N' or 'n' then LDA must be at least max( 1, n ), otherwise LDA must be at least max( 1, k ).

- beta T
BETA is DOUBLE PRECISION. On entry, BETA specifies the scalar beta.

- c Span2D<T>
C is DOUBLE PRECISION array of DIMENSION ( LDC, n ). Before entry with UPLO = 'U' or 'u', the leading n by n upper triangular part of the array C must contain the upper triangular part of the symmetric matrix and the strictly lower triangular part of C is not referenced. On exit, the upper triangular part of the array C is overwritten by the upper triangular part of the updated matrix. Before entry with UPLO = 'L' or 'l', the leading n by n lower triangular part of the array C must contain the lower triangular part of the symmetric matrix and the strictly upper triangular part of C is not referenced. On exit, the lower triangular part of the array C is overwritten by the lower triangular part of the updated matrix.

On entry, LDC specifies the first dimension of C as declared in the calling (sub) program. LDC must be at least max( 1, n ).

#### Type Parameters

- T

#### Usage Note

In Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type ILinearAlgebraOperations<T>. When you use instance method syntax to call this method, omit the first parameter. For more information, see Extension Methods (Visual Basic) or Extension Methods (C# Programming Guide).## Remarks
