## Function Documentation

### real function clantb (character norm, character uplo, character diag, integer n, integer k, complex, dimension( ldab, * ) ab, integer ldab, real, dimension( * ) work)

CLANTB returns the value of the 1-norm, or the Frobenius norm, or the infinity norm, or the element of largest absolute value of a triangular band matrix.

Purpose:

``` CLANTB  returns the value of the one norm,  or the Frobenius norm, or
the  infinity norm,  or the element of  largest absolute value  of an
n by n triangular band matrix A,  with ( k + 1 ) diagonals.```

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.```
