### subroutine checon (characterUPLO, integerN, complex, dimension( lda, * )A, integerLDA, integer, dimension( * )IPIV, realANORM, realRCOND, complex, dimension( * )WORK, integerINFO)

**CHECON**

**Purpose:**

```
CHECON estimates the reciprocal of the condition number of a complex
Hermitian matrix A using the factorization A = U*D*U**H or
A = L*D*L**H computed by CHETRF.
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
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**H;
= 'L': Lower triangular, form is A = L*D*L**H.
```

*N*

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

*A*

```
A is COMPLEX array, dimension (LDA,N)
The block diagonal matrix D and the multipliers used to
obtain the factor U or L as computed by CHETRF.
```

*LDA*

```
LDA is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array A. LDA >= max(1,N).
```

*IPIV*

```
IPIV is INTEGER array, dimension (N)
Details of the interchanges and the block structure of D
as determined by CHETRF.
```

*ANORM*

```
ANORM is REAL
The 1-norm of the original matrix A.
```

*RCOND*

```
RCOND is 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*

`WORK is COMPLEX array, dimension (2*N)`

*INFO*

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