.TH STRCON 1 "November 2006" " LAPACK routine (version 3.1) " " LAPACK routine (version 3.1) " .SH NAME STRCON - the reciprocal of the condition number of a triangular matrix A, in either the 1-norm or the infinity-norm .SH SYNOPSIS .TP 19 SUBROUTINE STRCON( NORM, UPLO, DIAG, N, A, LDA, RCOND, WORK, IWORK, INFO ) .TP 19 .ti +4 CHARACTER DIAG, NORM, UPLO .TP 19 .ti +4 INTEGER INFO, LDA, N .TP 19 .ti +4 REAL RCOND .TP 19 .ti +4 INTEGER IWORK( * ) .TP 19 .ti +4 REAL A( LDA, * ), WORK( * ) .SH PURPOSE STRCON estimates the reciprocal of the condition number of a triangular matrix A, in either the 1-norm or the infinity-norm. 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 .br RCOND = 1 / ( norm(A) * norm(inv(A)) ). .br .SH ARGUMENTS .TP 8 NORM (input) CHARACTER*1 Specifies whether the 1-norm condition number or the infinity-norm condition number is required: .br = \(aq1\(aq or \(aqO\(aq: 1-norm; .br = \(aqI\(aq: Infinity-norm. .TP 8 UPLO (input) CHARACTER*1 .br = \(aqU\(aq: A is upper triangular; .br = \(aqL\(aq: A is lower triangular. .TP 8 DIAG (input) CHARACTER*1 .br = \(aqN\(aq: A is non-unit triangular; .br = \(aqU\(aq: A is unit triangular. .TP 8 N (input) INTEGER The order of the matrix A. N >= 0. .TP 8 A (input) REAL array, dimension (LDA,N) The triangular matrix A. If UPLO = \(aqU\(aq, the leading N-by-N upper triangular part of the array A contains the upper triangular matrix, and the strictly lower triangular part of A is not referenced. If UPLO = \(aqL\(aq, the leading N-by-N lower triangular part of the array A contains the lower triangular matrix, and the strictly upper triangular part of A is not referenced. If DIAG = \(aqU\(aq, the diagonal elements of A are also not referenced and are assumed to be 1. .TP 8 LDA (input) INTEGER The leading dimension of the array A. LDA >= max(1,N). .TP 8 RCOND (output) REAL The reciprocal of the condition number of the matrix A, computed as RCOND = 1/(norm(A) * norm(inv(A))). .TP 8 WORK (workspace) REAL array, dimension (3*N) .TP 8 IWORK (workspace) INTEGER array, dimension (N) .TP 8 INFO (output) INTEGER = 0: successful exit .br < 0: if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value
