SSPCON(3) estimates the reciprocal of the condition number (in the 1-norm) of a real symmetric packed matrix A using the factorization A = U*D*U**T or A = L*D*L**T computed by SSPTRF

## SYNOPSIS

SUBROUTINE SSPCON(
UPLO, N, AP, IPIV, ANORM, RCOND, WORK, IWORK, INFO )

CHARACTER UPLO

INTEGER INFO, N

REAL ANORM, RCOND

INTEGER IPIV( * ), IWORK( * )

REAL AP( * ), WORK( * )

## PURPOSE

SSPCON estimates the reciprocal of the condition number (in the 1-norm) of a real symmetric packed matrix A using the factorization A = U*D*U**T or A = L*D*L**T computed by SSPTRF. 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. = 'U': Upper triangular, form is A = U*D*U**T;
= 'L': Lower triangular, form is A = L*D*L**T.
N (input) INTEGER
The order of the matrix A. N >= 0.
AP (input) REAL array, dimension (N*(N+1)/2)
The block diagonal matrix D and the multipliers used to obtain the factor U or L as computed by SSPTRF, stored as a packed triangular matrix.
IPIV (input) INTEGER array, dimension (N)
Details of the interchanges and the block structure of D as determined by SSPTRF.
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
