**NAME**

LAPACK-3 - estimates the 1-norm of a square, complex matrix A

**SYNOPSIS**

SUBROUTINE ZLACON( N, V, X, EST, KASE ) INTEGER KASE, N DOUBLE PRECISION EST COMPLEX*16 V( N ), X( N )

**PURPOSE**

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

**ARGUMENTS**

N (input) INTEGER The order of the matrix. N >= 1. V (workspace) COMPLEX*16 array, dimension (N) On the final return, V = A*W, where EST = norm(V)/norm(W) (W is not returned). X (input/output) 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 (input/output) 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 (input/output) 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.
