## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine dptcon (integer N, double precision, dimension( * ) D, double precision, dimension( * ) E, double precision ANORM, double precision RCOND, double precision, dimension( * ) WORK, integer INFO)

**DPTCON**

**Purpose:**

DPTCON computes the reciprocal of the condition number (in the 1-norm) of a real symmetric positive definite tridiagonal matrix using the factorization A = L*D*L**T or A = U**T*D*U computed by DPTTRF. Norm(inv(A)) is computed by a direct method, and the reciprocal of the condition number is computed as RCOND = 1 / (ANORM * norm(inv(A))).

**Parameters:***N*N is INTEGER The order of the matrix A. N >= 0.

*D*D is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (N) The n diagonal elements of the diagonal matrix D from the factorization of A, as computed by DPTTRF.

*E*E is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (N-1) The (n-1) off-diagonal elements of the unit bidiagonal factor U or L from the factorization of A, as computed by DPTTRF.

*ANORM*ANORM is DOUBLE PRECISION The 1-norm of the original 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 the 1-norm of inv(A) computed in this routine.

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

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