### subroutine sspcon (characterUPLO, integerN, real, dimension( * )AP, integer, dimension( * )IPIV, realANORM, realRCOND, real, dimension( * )WORK, integer, dimension( * )IWORK, integerINFO)

**SSPCON**

**Purpose:**

```
SSPCON estimates the reciprocal of the condition number (in the
1-norm) of a real symmetric packed matrix A using the factorization
A = U*D*U**T or A = L*D*L**T computed by SSPTRF.
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
Specifies whether the details of the factorization are stored
as an upper or lower triangular matrix.
= 'U': Upper triangular, form is A = U*D*U**T;
= 'L': Lower triangular, form is A = L*D*L**T.
```

*N*

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

*AP*

```
AP is REAL array, dimension (N*(N+1)/2)
The block diagonal matrix D and the multipliers used to
obtain the factor U or L as computed by SSPTRF, stored as a
packed triangular matrix.
```

*IPIV*

```
IPIV is INTEGER array, dimension (N)
Details of the interchanges and the block structure of D
as determined by SSPTRF.
```

*ANORM*

```
ANORM is REAL
The 1-norm of the original 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.
```

*WORK*

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

*IWORK*

`IWORK is INTEGER array, dimension (N)`

*INFO*

```
INFO is INTEGER
= 0: successful exit
< 0: if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value
```
