**NAME**

LAPACK-3 - returns the value of the one norm, or the Frobenius norm, or the infinity norm, or the element of largest absolute value of a real matrix A

**SYNOPSIS**

REAL FUNCTION SLANGE( NORM, M, N, A, LDA, WORK ) CHARACTER NORM INTEGER LDA, M, N REAL A( LDA, * ), WORK( * )

**PURPOSE**

SLANGE returns the value of the one norm, or the Frobenius norm, or the infinity norm, or the element of largest absolute value of a real matrix A.

**DESCRIPTION**

SLANGE returns the value SLANGE = ( max(abs(A(i,j))), NORM = 'M' or 'm' ( ( norm1(A), NORM = '1', 'O' or 'o' ( ( normI(A), NORM = 'I' or 'i' ( ( normF(A), NORM = 'F', 'f', 'E' or 'e' where norm1 denotes the one norm of a matrix (maximum column sum), normI denotes the infinity norm of a matrix (maximum row sum) and normF denotes the Frobenius norm of a matrix (square root of sum of squares). Note that max(abs(A(i,j))) is not a consistent matrix norm.

**ARGUMENTS**

NORM (input) CHARACTER*1 Specifies the value to be returned in SLANGE as described above. M (input) INTEGER The number of rows of the matrix A. M >= 0. When M = 0, SLANGE is set to zero. N (input) INTEGER The number of columns of the matrix A. N >= 0. When N = 0, SLANGE is set to zero. A (input) REAL array, dimension (LDA,N) The m by n matrix A. LDA (input) INTEGER The leading dimension of the array A. LDA >= max(M,1). WORK (workspace) REAL array, dimension (MAX(1,LWORK)), where LWORK >= M when NORM = 'I'; otherwise, WORK is not referenced.
