## NAME

SSYCON - estimates the reciprocal of the condition number (in the 1-norm) of a real symmetric matrix A using the factorization A = U*D*U**T or A = L*D*L**T computed by SSYTRF

## SYNOPSIS

SUBROUTINE SSYCON(
UPLO, N, A, LDA, IPIV, ANORM, RCOND, WORK, IWORK, INFO )

CHARACTER UPLO

INTEGER INFO, LDA, N

REAL ANORM, RCOND

INTEGER IPIV( * ), IWORK( * )

REAL A( LDA, * ), WORK( * )

## PURPOSE

SSYCON estimates the reciprocal of the condition number (in the 1-norm) of a real symmetric matrix A using the factorization A = U*D*U**T or A = L*D*L**T computed by SSYTRF. An estimate is obtained for norm(inv(A)), and the reciprocal of the condition number is computed as RCOND = 1 / (ANORM * norm(inv(A))).

## ARGUMENTS

UPLO (input) CHARACTER*1
Specifies whether the details of the factorization are stored as an upper or lower triangular matrix. = aqUaq: Upper triangular, form is A = U*D*U**T;
= aqLaq: Lower triangular, form is A = L*D*L**T.
N (input) INTEGER
The order of the matrix A. N >= 0.
A (input) REAL array, dimension (LDA,N)
The block diagonal matrix D and the multipliers used to obtain the factor U or L as computed by SSYTRF.
LDA (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array A. LDA >= max(1,N).
IPIV (input) INTEGER array, dimension (N)
Details of the interchanges and the block structure of D as determined by SSYTRF.
ANORM (input) REAL
The 1-norm of the original matrix A.
RCOND (output) 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 (workspace) REAL array, dimension (2*N)
IWORK (workspace) INTEGER array, dimension (N)
INFO (output) INTEGER
= 0: successful exit
< 0: if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value
