## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine ssyequb (character UPLO, integer N, real, dimension( lda, * ) A, integer LDA, real, dimension( * ) S, real SCOND, real AMAX, real, dimension( * ) WORK, integer INFO)

**SSYEQUB**

**Purpose:**

SSYEQUB computes row and column scalings intended to equilibrate a symmetric matrix A (with respect to the Euclidean norm) and reduce its condition number. The scale factors S are computed by the BIN algorithm (see references) so that the scaled matrix B with elements B(i,j) = S(i)*A(i,j)*S(j) has a condition number within a factor N of the smallest possible condition number over all possible diagonal scalings.

**Parameters:***UPLO*UPLO is CHARACTER*1 = 'U': Upper triangle of A is stored; = 'L': Lower triangle of A is stored.

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

*A*A is REAL array, dimension (LDA,N) The N-by-N symmetric matrix whose scaling factors are to be computed.

*LDA*LDA is INTEGER The leading dimension of the array A. LDA >= max(1,N).

*S*S is REAL array, dimension (N) If INFO = 0, S contains the scale factors for A.

*SCOND*SCOND is REAL If INFO = 0, S contains the ratio of the smallest S(i) to the largest S(i). If SCOND >= 0.1 and AMAX is neither too large nor too small, it is not worth scaling by S.

*AMAX*AMAX is REAL Largest absolute value of any matrix element. If AMAX is very close to overflow or very close to underflow, the matrix should be scaled.

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

*INFO*INFO is INTEGER = 0: successful exit < 0: if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value > 0: if INFO = i, the i-th diagonal element is nonpositive.
