## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine spocon (characterUPLO, integerN, real, dimension( lda, * )A, integerLDA, realANORM, realRCOND, real, dimension( * )WORK, integer, dimension( * )IWORK, integerINFO)

SPOCON

Purpose:

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

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 triangle of A is stored;
= 'L':  Lower triangle of A is stored.
```

N

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

A

```          A is REAL array, dimension (LDA,N)
The triangular factor U or L from the Cholesky factorization
A = U**T*U or A = L*L**T, as computed by SPOTRF.
```

LDA

```          LDA is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array A.  LDA >= max(1,N).
```

ANORM

```          ANORM is REAL
The 1-norm (or infinity-norm) of the symmetric 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
```
