## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine sspcon (character UPLO, integer N, real, dimension( * ) AP, integer, dimension( * ) IPIV, real ANORM, real RCOND, real, dimension( * ) WORK, integer, dimension( * ) IWORK, integer INFO)

**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
