As you can see in the table in atlas bindings doc, there are usually two
overloads of functions for symmetric and Hermitian matrices; eg.:
For second overload, "It is assumed that matrix traits class can
determine whether upper or lower triangular part of A contains the
corresponding part of the symmetric/Hermitian matrix".
That is, first overload is for "usual" ublas matrices (and first
argument must be either CblasUpper or CblasLower, denoting that leading
upper or lower triangular part of A contains the upper or lower
triangular part of the symmetric/Hermitian matrix).
Second overload is for matrices wrapped in "ublas::symmetric_adaptor".
Traits class will extract CblasUpper/CblasLower from adaptor.
See examples ublas_symm*.cc in
Hope this helps. Regards,
