## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine dppcon (character UPLO, integer N, double precision, dimension( * ) AP, double precision ANORM, double precision RCOND, double precision, dimension( * ) WORK, integer, dimension( * ) IWORK, integer INFO)

DPPCON

Purpose:

``` DPPCON estimates the reciprocal of the condition number (in the
1-norm) of a real symmetric positive definite packed matrix using
the Cholesky factorization A = U**T*U or A = L*L**T computed by
DPPTRF.

An estimate is obtained for norm(inv(A)), and the reciprocal of the
condition number is computed as RCOND = 1 / (ANORM * norm(inv(A))).
```

Parameters:

UPLO

```          UPLO is CHARACTER*1
= 'U':  Upper triangle of A is stored;
= 'L':  Lower triangle of A is stored.
```

N

```          N is INTEGER
The order of the matrix A.  N >= 0.
```

AP

```          AP is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (N*(N+1)/2)
The triangular factor U or L from the Cholesky factorization
A = U**T*U or A = L*L**T, 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

```          ANORM is DOUBLE PRECISION
The 1-norm (or infinity-norm) of the symmetric matrix A.
```

RCOND

```          RCOND is DOUBLE PRECISION
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

```          WORK is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (3*N)
```

IWORK

```          IWORK is INTEGER array, dimension (N)
```

INFO

```          INFO is INTEGER
= 0:  successful exit
< 0:  if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value
```
