DTPCON(l) ) DTPCON(l)
NAME
DTPCON  estimate the reciprocal of the condition number of a packed triangular matrix A,
in either the 1norm or the infinitynorm
SYNOPSIS
SUBROUTINE DTPCON( NORM, UPLO, DIAG, N, AP, RCOND, WORK, IWORK, INFO )
CHARACTER DIAG, NORM, UPLO
INTEGER INFO, N
DOUBLE PRECISION RCOND
INTEGER IWORK( * )
DOUBLE PRECISION AP( * ), WORK( * )
PURPOSE
DTPCON estimates the reciprocal of the condition number of a packed triangular matrix A,
in either the 1norm or the infinitynorm. 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 = 1 / ( norm(A) * norm(inv(A)) ).
ARGUMENTS
NORM (input) CHARACTER*1
Specifies whether the 1norm condition number or the infinitynorm condition num
ber is required:
= '1' or 'O': 1norm;
= 'I': Infinitynorm.
UPLO (input) CHARACTER*1
= 'U': A is upper triangular;
= 'L': A is lower triangular.
DIAG (input) CHARACTER*1
= 'N': A is nonunit triangular;
= 'U': A is unit triangular.
N (input) INTEGER
The order of the matrix A. N >= 0.
AP (input) DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (N*(N+1)/2)
The upper or lower triangular matrix A, packed columnwise in a linear array. The
jth column of A is stored in the array AP as follows: if UPLO = 'U', AP(i +
(j1)*j/2) = A(i,j) for 1<=i<=j; if UPLO = 'L', AP(i + (j1)*(2nj)/2) = A(i,j)
for j<=i<=n. If DIAG = 'U', the diagonal elements of A are not referenced and are
assumed to be 1.
RCOND (output) DOUBLE PRECISION
The reciprocal of the condition number of the matrix A, computed as RCOND =
1/(norm(A) * norm(inv(A))).
WORK (workspace) DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (3*N)
IWORK (workspace) INTEGER array, dimension (N)
INFO (output) INTEGER
= 0: successful exit
< 0: if INFO = i, the ith argument had an illegal value
