CPPCON(3) estimates the reciprocal of the condition number (in the 1-norm) of a complex Hermitian positive definite packed matrix using the Cholesky factorization A = U**H*U or A = L*L**H computed by CPPTRF

## SYNOPSIS

SUBROUTINE CPPCON(
UPLO, N, AP, ANORM, RCOND, WORK, RWORK, INFO )

CHARACTER UPLO

INTEGER INFO, N

REAL ANORM, RCOND

REAL RWORK( * )

COMPLEX AP( * ), WORK( * )

## PURPOSE

CPPCON estimates the reciprocal of the condition number (in the 1-norm) of a complex Hermitian positive definite packed matrix using the Cholesky factorization A = U**H*U or A = L*L**H computed by CPPTRF. 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.
AP (input) COMPLEX array, dimension (N*(N+1)/2)
The triangular factor U or L from the Cholesky factorization A = U**H*U or A = L*L**H, 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 (input) REAL
The 1-norm (or infinity-norm) of the Hermitian 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) 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
