## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### REAL function clanhf (characterNORM, characterTRANSR, characterUPLO, integerN, complex, dimension( 0: * )A, real, dimension( 0: * )WORK)

**CLANHF** returns the value of the 1-norm, or the Frobenius norm, or the infinity norm, or the element of largest absolute value of a Hermitian matrix in RFP format.

**Purpose:**

```
CLANHF 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 Hermitian matrix A in RFP format.
```

**Returns:**

CLANHF

```
CLANHF = ( 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 matrix norm.
```

**Parameters:**

*NORM*

```
NORM is CHARACTER
Specifies the value to be returned in CLANHF as described
above.
```

*TRANSR*

```
TRANSR is CHARACTER
Specifies whether the RFP format of A is normal or
conjugate-transposed format.
= 'N': RFP format is Normal
= 'C': RFP format is Conjugate-transposed
```

*UPLO*

```
UPLO is CHARACTER
On entry, UPLO specifies whether the RFP matrix A came from
an upper or lower triangular matrix as follows:
UPLO = 'U' or 'u' RFP A came from an upper triangular
matrix
UPLO = 'L' or 'l' RFP A came from a lower triangular
matrix
```

*N*

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

*A*

```
A is COMPLEX array, dimension ( N*(N+1)/2 );
On entry, the matrix A in RFP Format.
RFP Format is described by TRANSR, UPLO and N as follows:
If TRANSR='N' then RFP A is (0:N,0:K-1) when N is even;
K=N/2. RFP A is (0:N-1,0:K) when N is odd; K=N/2. If
TRANSR = 'C' then RFP is the Conjugate-transpose of RFP A
as defined when TRANSR = 'N'. The contents of RFP A are
defined by UPLO as follows: If UPLO = 'U' the RFP A
contains the ( N*(N+1)/2 ) elements of upper packed A
either in normal or conjugate-transpose Format. If
UPLO = 'L' the RFP A contains the ( N*(N+1) /2 ) elements
of lower packed A either in normal or conjugate-transpose
Format. The LDA of RFP A is (N+1)/2 when TRANSR = 'C'. When
TRANSR is 'N' the LDA is N+1 when N is even and is N when
is odd. See the Note below for more details.
Unchanged on exit.
```

*WORK*

```
WORK is REAL array, dimension (LWORK),
where LWORK >= N when NORM = 'I' or '1' or 'O'; otherwise,
WORK is not referenced.

We first consider Standard Packed Format when N is even.
We give an example where N = 6.

Let TRANSR = 'N'. RFP holds AP as follows:
For UPLO = 'U' the upper trapezoid A(0:5,0:2) consists of the last
three columns of AP upper. The lower triangle A(4:6,0:2) consists of
conjugate-transpose of the first three columns of AP upper.
For UPLO = 'L' the lower trapezoid A(1:6,0:2) consists of the first
three columns of AP lower. The upper triangle A(0:2,0:2) consists of
conjugate-transpose of the last three columns of AP lower.
To denote conjugate we place -- above the element. This covers the
case N even and TRANSR = 'N'.

Now let TRANSR = 'C'. RFP A in both UPLO cases is just the conjugate-
transpose of RFP A above. One therefore gets:

We next consider Standard Packed Format when N is odd.
We give an example where N = 5.

Let TRANSR = 'N'. RFP holds AP as follows:
For UPLO = 'U' the upper trapezoid A(0:4,0:2) consists of the last
three columns of AP upper. The lower triangle A(3:4,0:1) consists of
conjugate-transpose of the first two columns of AP upper.
For UPLO = 'L' the lower trapezoid A(0:4,0:2) consists of the first
three columns of AP lower. The upper triangle A(0:1,1:2) consists of
conjugate-transpose of the last two columns of AP lower.
To denote conjugate we place -- above the element. This covers the
case N odd and TRANSR = 'N'.
