## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine slacn2 (integer N, real, dimension( * ) V, real, dimension( * ) X, integer, dimension( * ) ISGN, real EST, integer KASE, integer, dimension( 3 ) ISAVE)

**SLACN2** estimates the 1-norm of a square matrix, using reverse communication for evaluating matrix-vector products.

**Purpose:**

SLACN2 estimates the 1-norm of a square, real matrix A. Reverse communication is used for evaluating matrix-vector products.

**Parameters:***N*N is INTEGER The order of the matrix. N >= 1.

*V*V is REAL array, dimension (N) On the final return, V = A*W, where EST = norm(V)/norm(W) (W is not returned).

*X*X is REAL array, dimension (N) On an intermediate return, X should be overwritten by A * X, if KASE=1, A**T * X, if KASE=2, and SLACN2 must be re-called with all the other parameters unchanged.

*ISGN*ISGN is INTEGER array, dimension (N)

*EST*EST is REAL On entry with KASE = 1 or 2 and ISAVE(1) = 3, EST should be unchanged from the previous call to SLACN2. On exit, EST is an estimate (a lower bound) for norm(A).

*KASE*KASE is INTEGER On the initial call to SLACN2, KASE should be 0. On an intermediate return, KASE will be 1 or 2, indicating whether X should be overwritten by A * X or A**T * X. On the final return from SLACN2, KASE will again be 0.

*ISAVE*ISAVE is INTEGER array, dimension (3) ISAVE is used to save variables between calls to SLACN2

Originally named SONEST, dated March 16, 1988. This is a thread safe version of SLACON, which uses the array ISAVE in place of a SAVE statement, as follows: SLACON SLACN2 JUMP ISAVE(1) J ISAVE(2) ITER ISAVE(3)
