## NAME

SLANGB - returns the value of the one norm, or the Frobenius norm, or the infinity norm, or the element of largest absolute value of an n by n band matrix A, with kl sub-diagonals and ku super-diagonals

## SYNOPSIS

REAL FUNCTION
SLANGB( NORM, N, KL, KU, AB, LDAB, WORK )

CHARACTER NORM

INTEGER KL, KU, LDAB, N

REAL AB( LDAB, * ), WORK( * )

## PURPOSE

SLANGB returns the value of the one norm, or the Frobenius norm, or the infinity norm, or the element of largest absolute value of an n by n band matrix A, with kl sub-diagonals and ku super-diagonals.

## DESCRIPTION

SLANGB returns the value

SLANGB max(abs(A(i,j))), NORM aqMaq or aqmaq

(

norm1(A),         NORM aq1aq, aqOaq or aqoaq

(

normI(A),         NORM aqIaq or aqiaq

(

normF(A),         NORM aqFaq, aqfaq, aqEaq or aqeaq where norm1 denotes the one norm of a matrix (maximum column sum), normI denotes the infinity norm of a matrix (maximum row sum) and normF denotes the Frobenius norm of a matrix (square root of sum of squares). Note that max(abs(A(i,j))) is not a consistent matrix norm.

## ARGUMENTS

NORM (input) CHARACTER*1
Specifies the value to be returned in SLANGB as described above.
N (input) INTEGER
The order of the matrix A. N >= 0. When N = 0, SLANGB is set to zero.
KL (input) INTEGER
The number of sub-diagonals of the matrix A. KL >= 0.
KU (input) INTEGER
The number of super-diagonals of the matrix A. KU >= 0.
AB (input) REAL array, dimension (LDAB,N)
The band matrix A, stored in rows 1 to KL+KU+1. The j-th column of A is stored in the j-th column of the array AB as follows: AB(ku+1+i-j,j) = A(i,j) for max(1,j-ku)<=i<=min(n,j+kl).
LDAB (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array AB. LDAB >= KL+KU+1.
WORK (workspace) REAL array, dimension (MAX(1,LWORK)),
where LWORK >= N when NORM = aqIaq; otherwise, WORK is not referenced.
