NAME
SPTCON - compute the reciprocal of the condition number (in
the 1-norm) of a real symmetric positive definite tridiago-
nal matrix using the factorization A = L*D*L**T or A =
U**T*D*U computed by SPTTRF

SYNOPSIS
SUBROUTINE SPTCON( N, D, E, ANORM, RCOND, WORK, INFO )

INTEGER        INFO, N

REAL           ANORM, RCOND

REAL           D( * ), E( * ), WORK( * )

PURPOSE
SPTCON computes the reciprocal of the condition number (in
the 1-norm) of a real symmetric positive definite tridiago-
nal matrix using the factorization A = L*D*L**T or A =
U**T*D*U computed by SPTTRF.

Norm(inv(A)) is computed by a direct method, and the
reciprocal of the condition number is computed as
RCOND = 1 / (ANORM * norm(inv(A))).

ARGUMENTS
N       (input) INTEGER
The order of the matrix A.  N >= 0.

D       (input) REAL array, dimension (N)
The n diagonal elements of the diagonal matrix D
from the factorization of A, as computed by SPTTRF.

E       (input) REAL array, dimension (N-1)
The (n-1) off-diagonal elements of the unit bidiago-
nal factor U or L from the factorization of A,  as
computed by SPTTRF.

ANORM   (input) REAL
The 1-norm of the original matrix A.

RCOND   (output) REAL
The reciprocal of the condition number of the matrix
A, computed as RCOND = 1/(ANORM * AINVNM), where
AINVNM is the 1-norm of inv(A) computed in this rou-
tine.

WORK    (workspace) REAL array, dimension (N)

INFO    (output) INTEGER
= 0:  successful exit

< 0:  if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal
value

FURTHER DETAILS
The method used is described in Nicholas J. Higham, "Effi-
cient Algorithms for Computing the Condition Number of a
Tridiagonal Matrix", SIAM J. Sci. Stat. Comput., Vol. 7, No.
1, January 1986.
