## Function/Subroutine Documentation

### subroutine zlacon (integerN, complex*16, dimension( n )V, complex*16, dimension( n )X, double precisionEST, integerKASE)

**ZLACON** estimates the 1-norm of a square matrix, using reverse communication for evaluating matrix-vector products.

**Purpose:**

```
ZLACON estimates the 1-norm of a square, complex matrix A.
Reverse communication is used for evaluating matrix-vector products.
```

**Parameters:**

*N*

```
N is INTEGER
The order of the matrix. N >= 1.
```

*V*

```
V is COMPLEX*16 array, dimension (N)
On the final return, V = A*W, where EST = norm(V)/norm(W)
(W is not returned).
```

*X*

```
X is COMPLEX*16 array, dimension (N)
On an intermediate return, X should be overwritten by
A * X, if KASE=1,
A**H * X, if KASE=2,
where A**H is the conjugate transpose of A, and ZLACON must be
re-called with all the other parameters unchanged.
```

*EST*

```
EST is DOUBLE PRECISION
On entry with KASE = 1 or 2 and JUMP = 3, EST should be
unchanged from the previous call to ZLACON.
On exit, EST is an estimate (a lower bound) for norm(A).
```

*KASE*

```
KASE is INTEGER
On the initial call to ZLACON, KASE should be 0.
On an intermediate return, KASE will be 1 or 2, indicating
whether X should be overwritten by A * X or A**H * X.
On the final return from ZLACON, KASE will again be 0.
```
