## NAME

CTPCON - estimates the reciprocal of the condition number of a packed triangular matrix A, in either the 1-norm or the infinity-norm

## SYNOPSIS

SUBROUTINE CTPCON(
NORM, UPLO, DIAG, N, AP, RCOND, WORK, RWORK, INFO )

CHARACTER DIAG, NORM, UPLO

INTEGER INFO, N

REAL RCOND

REAL RWORK( * )

COMPLEX AP( * ), WORK( * )

## PURPOSE

CTPCON estimates the reciprocal of the condition number of a packed triangular matrix A, in either the 1-norm or the infinity-norm. The norm of A is computed and an estimate is obtained for norm(inv(A)), then the reciprocal of the condition number is computed as

RCOND norm(A) norm(inv(A)) ).

## ARGUMENTS

NORM (input) CHARACTER*1
Specifies whether the 1-norm condition number or the infinity-norm condition number is required:
= aq1aq or aqOaq: 1-norm;
= aqIaq: Infinity-norm.
UPLO (input) CHARACTER*1

= aqUaq: A is upper triangular;
= aqLaq: A is lower triangular.
DIAG (input) CHARACTER*1

= aqNaq: A is non-unit triangular;
= aqUaq: A is unit triangular.
N (input) INTEGER
The order of the matrix A. N >= 0.
AP (input) COMPLEX array, dimension (N*(N+1)/2)
The upper or lower triangular matrix A, packed columnwise in a linear array. The j-th column of A is stored in the array AP as follows: if UPLO = aqUaq, AP(i + (j-1)*j/2) = A(i,j) for 1<=i<=j; if UPLO = aqLaq, AP(i + (j-1)*(2n-j)/2) = A(i,j) for j<=i<=n. If DIAG = aqUaq, the diagonal elements of A are not referenced and are assumed to be 1.
RCOND (output) REAL
The reciprocal of the condition number of the matrix A, computed as RCOND = 1/(norm(A) * norm(inv(A))).
WORK (workspace) COMPLEX array, dimension (2*N)
RWORK (workspace) REAL array, dimension (N)
INFO (output) INTEGER
= 0: successful exit
< 0: if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value
