## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### real function sla_porpvgrw (character*1 UPLO, integer NCOLS, real, dimension( lda, * ) A, integer LDA, real, dimension( ldaf, * ) AF, integer LDAF, real, dimension( * ) WORK)

**SLA_PORPVGRW** computes the reciprocal pivot growth factor norm(A)/norm(U) for a symmetric or Hermitian positive-definite matrix.

**Purpose:**

SLA_PORPVGRW computes the reciprocal pivot growth factor norm(A)/norm(U). The "max absolute element" norm is used. If this is much less than 1, the stability of the LU factorization of the (equilibrated) matrix A could be poor. This also means that the solution X, estimated condition numbers, and error bounds could be unreliable.

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

*NCOLS*NCOLS is INTEGER The number of columns of the matrix A. NCOLS >= 0.

*A*A is REAL array, dimension (LDA,N) On entry, the N-by-N matrix A.

*LDA*LDA is INTEGER The leading dimension of the array A. LDA >= max(1,N).

*AF*AF is REAL array, dimension (LDAF,N) The triangular factor U or L from the Cholesky factorization A = U**T*U or A = L*L**T, as computed by SPOTRF.

*LDAF*LDAF is INTEGER The leading dimension of the array AF. LDAF >= max(1,N).

*WORK*WORK is REAL array, dimension (2*N)
