## Function Documentation

### subroutine cppcon (character uplo, integer n, complex, dimension( * ) ap, real anorm, real rcond, complex, dimension( * ) work, real, dimension( * ) rwork, integer info)

CPPCON

Purpose:

``` CPPCON estimates the reciprocal of the condition number (in the
1-norm) of a complex Hermitian positive definite packed matrix using
the Cholesky factorization A = U**H*U or A = L*L**H computed by
CPPTRF.

An estimate is obtained for norm(inv(A)), and the reciprocal of the
condition number is computed as RCOND = 1 / (ANORM * norm(inv(A))).```
Parameters

UPLO

```          UPLO is CHARACTER*1
= 'U':  Upper triangle of A is stored;
= 'L':  Lower triangle of A is stored.```

N

```          N is INTEGER
The order of the matrix A.  N >= 0.```

AP

```          AP is COMPLEX array, dimension (N*(N+1)/2)
The triangular factor U or L from the Cholesky factorization
A = U**H*U or A = L*L**H, packed columnwise in a linear
array.  The j-th column of U or L is stored in the array AP
as follows:
if UPLO = 'U', AP(i + (j-1)*j/2) = U(i,j) for 1<=i<=j;
if UPLO = 'L', AP(i + (j-1)*(2n-j)/2) = L(i,j) for j<=i<=n.```

ANORM

```          ANORM is REAL
The 1-norm (or infinity-norm) of the Hermitian matrix A.```

RCOND

```          RCOND is REAL
The reciprocal of the condition number of the matrix A,
computed as RCOND = 1/(ANORM * AINVNM), where AINVNM is an
estimate of the 1-norm of inv(A) computed in this routine.```
