## Synopsis

## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### real function clangt (character NORM, integer N, complex, dimension( * ) DL, complex, dimension( * ) D, complex, dimension( * ) DU)

**CLANGT** returns the value of the 1-norm, Frobenius norm, infinity-norm, or the largest absolute value of any element of a general tridiagonal matrix.

**Purpose:**

CLANGT returns the value of the one norm, or the Frobenius norm, or the infinity norm, or the element of largest absolute value of a complex tridiagonal matrix A.

**Returns:**CLANGT

CLANGT = ( max(abs(A(i,j))), NORM = 'M' or 'm' ( ( norm1(A), NORM = '1', 'O' or 'o' ( ( normI(A), NORM = 'I' or 'i' ( ( normF(A), NORM = 'F', 'f', 'E' or 'e' 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.

**Parameters:***NORM*NORM is CHARACTER*1 Specifies the value to be returned in CLANGT as described above.

*N*N is INTEGER The order of the matrix A. N >= 0. When N = 0, CLANGT is set to zero.

*DL*DL is COMPLEX array, dimension (N-1) The (n-1) sub-diagonal elements of A.

*D*D is COMPLEX array, dimension (N) The diagonal elements of A.

*DU*DU is COMPLEX array, dimension (N-1) The (n-1) super-diagonal elements of A.
