NAME
SPOCON  estimate the reciprocal of the condition number (in the 1norm) of a real symmet
ric positive definite matrix using the Cholesky factorization A = U**T*U or A = L*L**T
computed by SPOTRF
SYNOPSIS
SUBROUTINE SPOCON( UPLO, N, A, LDA, ANORM, RCOND, WORK, IWORK, INFO )
CHARACTER UPLO
INTEGER INFO, LDA, N
REAL ANORM, RCOND
INTEGER IWORK( * )
REAL A( LDA, * ), WORK( * )
PURPOSE
SPOCON estimates the reciprocal of the condition number (in the 1norm) of a real symmet
ric positive definite matrix using the Cholesky factorization A = U**T*U or A = L*L**T
computed by SPOTRF. 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
= 'U': Upper triangle of A is stored;
= 'L': Lower triangle of A is stored.
N (input) INTEGER
The order of the matrix A. N >= 0.
A (input) REAL array, dimension (LDA,N)
The triangular factor U or L from the Cholesky factorization A = U**T*U or A =
L*L**T, as computed by SPOTRF.
LDA (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array A. LDA >= max(1,N).
ANORM (input) REAL
The 1norm (or infinitynorm) of the symmetric 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 1norm of inv(A) computed
in this routine.
WORK (workspace) REAL 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
