## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine ssyequb (characterUPLO, integerN, real, dimension( lda, * )A, integerLDA, real, dimension( * )S, realSCOND, realAMAX, real, dimension( * )WORK, integerINFO)

**SSYEQUB**

**Purpose:**

```
SSYEQUB computes row and column scalings intended to equilibrate a
symmetric matrix A and reduce its condition number
(with respect to the two-norm). S contains the scale factors,
S(i) = 1/sqrt(A(i,i)), chosen so that the scaled matrix B with
elements B(i,j) = S(i)*A(i,j)*S(j) has ones on the diagonal. This
choice of S puts the condition number of B within a factor N of the
smallest possible condition number over all possible diagonal
scalings.
```

**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.
```

*A*

```
A is REAL array, dimension (LDA,N)
The N-by-N symmetric matrix whose scaling
factors are to be computed. Only the diagonal elements of A
are referenced.
```

*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
Absolute value of largest 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 (3*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.
```
