Consider the rank-1 update:

where *A* is an matrix.
*Here we have purposely reversed the order of
**x* and *y* , since this will allow
for an explanation that matches that for
the parallel implementation of matrix-vector multiplication.
Again, elements of *y* and *x* are naturally associated with
corresponding rows and columns of *A* , respectively.
