## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### REAL function slantp (characterNORM, characterUPLO, characterDIAG, integerN, real, dimension( * )AP, real, dimension( * )WORK)

**SLANTP** 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 matrix supplied in packed form.

**Purpose:**

```
SLANTP returns the value of the one norm, or the Frobenius norm, or
the infinity norm, or the element of largest absolute value of a
triangular matrix A, supplied in packed form.
```

**Returns:**

SLANTP

```
SLANTP = ( max(abs(A(i,j))), NORM = 'M' or 'm'
(
( norm1(A), NORM = '1', 'O' or 'o'
(
( normI(A), NORM = 'I' or 'i'
(
( normF(A), NORM = 'F', 'f', 'E' or 'e'
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.
```

**Parameters:**

*NORM*

```
NORM is CHARACTER*1
Specifies the value to be returned in SLANTP as described
above.
```

*UPLO*

```
UPLO is CHARACTER*1
Specifies whether the matrix A is upper or lower triangular.
= 'U': Upper triangular
= 'L': Lower triangular
```

*DIAG*

```
DIAG is CHARACTER*1
Specifies whether or not the matrix A is unit triangular.
= 'N': Non-unit triangular
= 'U': Unit triangular
```

*N*

```
N is INTEGER
The order of the matrix A. N >= 0. When N = 0, SLANTP is
set to zero.
```

*AP*

```
AP is REAL array, dimension (N*(N+1)/2)
The upper or lower triangular matrix A, packed columnwise in
a linear array. The j-th column of A is stored in the array
AP as follows:
if UPLO = 'U', AP(i + (j-1)*j/2) = A(i,j) for 1<=i<=j;
if UPLO = 'L', AP(i + (j-1)*(2n-j)/2) = A(i,j) for j<=i<=n.
Note that when DIAG = 'U', the elements of the array AP
corresponding to the diagonal elements of the matrix A are
not referenced, but are assumed to be one.
```

*WORK*

```
WORK is REAL array, dimension (MAX(1,LWORK)),
where LWORK >= N when NORM = 'I'; otherwise, WORK is not
referenced.
```
