SPBCON

Purpose:

SPBCON estimates the reciprocal of the condition number (in the
1-norm) of a real symmetric positive definite band matrix using the
Cholesky factorization A = U**T*U or A = L*L**T computed by SPBTRF.

An estimate is obtained for norm(inv(A)), and the reciprocal of the
condition number is computed as RCOND = 1 / (ANORM * norm(inv(A))).

Parameters:

UPLO

UPLO is CHARACTER*1
= 'U':  Upper triangular factor stored in AB;
= 'L':  Lower triangular factor stored in AB.

N

N is INTEGER
The order of the matrix A.  N >= 0.

KD

KD is INTEGER
The number of superdiagonals of the matrix A if UPLO = 'U',
or the number of subdiagonals if UPLO = 'L'.  KD >= 0.

AB

AB is REAL array, dimension (LDAB,N)
The triangular factor U or L from the Cholesky factorization
A = U**T*U or A = L*L**T of the band matrix A, stored in the
first KD+1 rows of the array.  The j-th column of U or L is
stored in the j-th column of the array AB as follows:
if UPLO ='U', AB(kd+1+i-j,j) = U(i,j) for max(1,j-kd)<=i<=j;
if UPLO ='L', AB(1+i-j,j)    = L(i,j) for j<=i<=min(n,j+kd).

LDAB

LDAB is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array AB.  LDAB >= KD+1.

ANORM

ANORM is REAL
The 1-norm (or infinity-norm) of the symmetric band matrix A.

RCOND

RCOND is REAL
The reciprocal of the condition number of the matrix A,
computed as RCOND = 1/(ANORM * AINVNM), where AINVNM is an
estimate of the 1-norm of inv(A) computed in this routine.

WORK

WORK is REAL array, dimension (3*N)

IWORK

IWORK is INTEGER array, dimension (N)

INFO

INFO is INTEGER
= 0:  successful exit
< 0:  if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value
