scal

Computes the product of a vector by a scalar.

Description

The
scal
routines computes a scalar-vector product. The operation is defined as:
LaTex Math image.
where:
  • x
    is a vector of
    n
    elements
  • alpha
    is a scalar

scal (Buffer Version)

Syntax
namespace oneapi::mkl::blas::column_major { void scal(sycl::queue &queue, std::int64_t n, T_scalar alpha, sycl::buffer<T,1> &x, std::int64_t incx) }
namespace oneapi::mkl::blas::row_major { void scal(sycl::queue &queue, std::int64_t n, T_scalar alpha, sycl::buffer<T,1> &x, std::int64_t incx) }
Input Parameters
queue
The queue where the routine should be executed.
n
Number of elements in vector
x
.
alpha
Specifies the scalar
alpha
.
x
Buffer holding input vector
x
. Size of the buffer must be at least (1 + (
n
- 1)*abs(
incx
)). See ref:
matrix-storage
for more details.
incx
Stride of vector
x
.
Output Parameters
x
Buffer holding updated buffer
x
.

scal (USM Version)

Syntax
namespace oneapi::mkl::blas::column_major { sycl::event scal(sycl::queue &queue, std::int64_t n, T_scalar alpha, T *x, std::int64_t incx, const std::vector<sycl::event> &dependencies = {}) }
namespace oneapi::mkl::blas::row_major { sycl::event scal(sycl::queue &queue, std::int64_t n, T_scalar alpha, T *x, std::int64_t incx, const std::vector<sycl::event> &dependencies = {}) }
Input Parameters
queue
The queue where the routine should be executed.
n
Number of elements in vector
x
.
alpha
Specifies the scalar
alpha
.
x
Pointer to the input vector
x
. Size of the array must be at least (1 + (
n
- 1)*abs(
incx
)). See ref:
matrix-storage
for more details.
incx
Stride of vector
x
.
Output Parameters
x
Pointer to updated array
