### subroutine stbcon (characterNORM, characterUPLO, characterDIAG, integerN, integerKD, real, dimension( ldab, * )AB, integerLDAB, realRCOND, real, dimension( * )WORK, integer, dimension( * )IWORK, integerINFO)

**STBCON**

**Purpose:**

```
STBCON estimates the reciprocal of the condition number of a
triangular band matrix A, in either the 1-norm or the infinity-norm.
The norm of A is computed and an estimate is obtained for
norm(inv(A)), then the reciprocal of the condition number is
computed as
RCOND = 1 / ( norm(A) * norm(inv(A)) ).
```

**Parameters:**

*NORM*

```
NORM is CHARACTER*1
Specifies whether the 1-norm condition number or the
infinity-norm condition number is required:
= '1' or 'O': 1-norm;
= 'I': Infinity-norm.
```

*UPLO*

```
UPLO is CHARACTER*1
= 'U': A is upper triangular;
= 'L': A is lower triangular.
```

*DIAG*

```
DIAG is CHARACTER*1
= 'N': A is non-unit triangular;
= 'U': A is unit triangular.
```

*N*

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

*KD*

```
KD is INTEGER
The number of superdiagonals or subdiagonals of the
triangular band matrix A. KD >= 0.
```

*AB*

```
AB is REAL array, dimension (LDAB,N)
The upper or lower triangular band matrix A, stored in the
first kd+1 rows of the array. The j-th column of A is stored
in the j-th column of the array AB as follows:
if UPLO = 'U', AB(kd+1+i-j,j) = A(i,j) for max(1,j-kd)<=i<=j;
if UPLO = 'L', AB(1+i-j,j) = A(i,j) for j<=i<=min(n,j+kd).
If DIAG = 'U', the diagonal elements of A are not referenced
and are assumed to be 1.
```

*LDAB*

```
LDAB is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array AB. LDAB >= KD+1.
```

*RCOND*

```
RCOND is REAL
The reciprocal of the condition number of the matrix A,
computed as RCOND = 1/(norm(A) * norm(inv(A))).
```

*WORK*

`WORK is REAL array, dimension (3*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
```
