subroutine dppcon (characterUPLO, integerN, double precision, dimension( * )AP, double precisionANORM, double precisionRCOND, double precision,

DPPCON

Purpose:

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

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.

AP

AP is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (N*(N+1)/2)
The triangular factor U or L from the Cholesky factorization
A = U**T*U or A = L*L**T, packed columnwise in a linear
array.  The j-th column of U or L is stored in the array AP
as follows:
if UPLO = 'U', AP(i + (j-1)*j/2) = U(i,j) for 1<=i<=j;
if UPLO = 'L', AP(i + (j-1)*(2n-j)/2) = L(i,j) for j<=i<=n.

ANORM

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

RCOND

RCOND is DOUBLE PRECISION
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 DOUBLE PRECISION 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
