.SH PURPOSE
SLANSP returns the value of the one norm, or the Frobenius norm, or
the infinity norm, or the element of largest absolute value of a
real symmetric matrix A, supplied in packed form.
.SH DESCRIPTION
SLANSP returns the value
.br
SLANSP = ( max(abs(A(i,j))), NORM = \(aqM\(aq or \(aqm\(aq
.br
(
.br
( norm1(A), NORM = \(aq1\(aq, \(aqO\(aq or \(aqo\(aq
.br
(
.br
( normI(A), NORM = \(aqI\(aq or \(aqi\(aq
.br
(
.br
( normF(A), NORM = \(aqF\(aq, \(aqf\(aq, \(aqE\(aq or \(aqe\(aq
where norm1 denotes the one norm of a matrix (maximum column sum),
normI denotes the infinity norm of a matrix (maximum row sum) and
normF denotes the Frobenius norm of a matrix (square root of sum of
squares). Note that max(abs(A(i,j))) is not a consistent matrix norm.
.SH ARGUMENTS
.TP 8
NORM (input) CHARACTER*1
Specifies the value to be returned in SLANSP as described
above.
.TP 8
UPLO (input) CHARACTER*1
Specifies whether the upper or lower triangular part of the
symmetric matrix A is supplied.
= \(aqU\(aq: Upper triangular part of A is supplied
.br
= \(aqL\(aq: Lower triangular part of A is supplied
.TP 8
N (input) INTEGER
The order of the matrix A. N >= 0. When N = 0, SLANSP is
set to zero.
.TP 8
AP (input) REAL array, dimension (N*(N+1)/2)
The upper or lower triangle of the symmetric matrix A, packed
columnwise in a linear array. The j-th column of A is stored
in the array AP as follows:
if UPLO = \(aqU\(aq, AP(i + (j-1)*j/2) = A(i,j) for 1<=i<=j;
if UPLO = \(aqL\(aq, AP(i + (j-1)*(2n-j)/2) = A(i,j) for j<=i<=n.
.TP 8
WORK (workspace) REAL array, dimension (MAX(1,LWORK)),
where LWORK >= N when NORM = \(aqI\(aq or \(aq1\(aq or \(aqO\(aq; otherwise,
WORK is not referenced.
