subroutine slacon (N, V, X, ISGN, EST, KASE)
SLACON estimates the 1-norm of a square matrix, using reverse communication for evaluating matrix-vector products.

## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine slacon (integer N, real, dimension( * ) V, real, dimension( * ) X, integer, dimension( * ) ISGN, real EST, integer KASE)

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

Purpose:

``` SLACON 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 SLACON 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 JUMP = 3, EST should be
unchanged from the previous call to SLACON.
On exit, EST is an estimate (a lower bound) for norm(A).```

KASE

```          KASE is INTEGER
On the initial call to SLACON, 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 SLACON, KASE will again be 0.```
