### Functions/Subroutines

subroutine clacon (N, V, X, EST, KASE)
CLACON estimates the 1-norm of a square matrix, using reverse communication for evaluating matrix-vector products.

## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine clacon (integer N, complex, dimension( n ) V, complex, dimension( n ) X, real EST, integer KASE)

CLACON estimates the 1-norm of a square matrix, using reverse communication for evaluating matrix-vector products.

Purpose:

``` CLACON estimates the 1-norm of a square, complex matrix A.
Reverse communication is used for evaluating matrix-vector products.```
Parameters:

N

```          N is INTEGER
The order of the matrix.  N >= 1.```

V

```          V is COMPLEX array, dimension (N)
On the final return, V = A*W,  where  EST = norm(V)/norm(W)
(W is not returned).```

X

```          X is COMPLEX array, dimension (N)
On an intermediate return, X should be overwritten by
A * X,   if KASE=1,
A**H * X,  if KASE=2,
where A**H is the conjugate transpose of A, and CLACON must be
re-called with all the other parameters unchanged.```

EST

```          EST is REAL
On entry with KASE = 1 or 2 and JUMP = 3, EST should be
unchanged from the previous call to CLACON.
On exit, EST is an estimate (a lower bound) for norm(A).```

KASE

```          KASE is INTEGER
On the initial call to CLACON, KASE should be 0.
On an intermediate return, KASE will be 1 or 2, indicating
whether X should be overwritten by A * X  or A**H * X.
On the final return from CLACON, KASE will again be 0.```
