The function may be called by the names: f07jgc, nag_lapacklin_dptcon or nag_dptcon.
f07jgc should be preceded by a call to f07jdc, which computes a modified Cholesky factorization of the matrix as
where is a unit lower bidiagonal matrix and is a diagonal matrix, with positive diagonal elements. f07jgc then utilizes the factorization to compute by a direct method, from which the reciprocal of the condition number of , is computed as
is returned, rather than , since when is singular is infinite.

8Parallelism and Performance
Background information to multithreading can be found in the Multithreading documentation.
f07jgc makes calls to BLAS and/or LAPACK routines, which may be threaded within the vendor library used by this implementation. Consult the documentation for the vendor library for further information.
Please consult the X06 Chapter Introduction for information on how to control and interrogate the OpenMP environment used within this function. Please also consult the Users' Note for your implementation for any additional implementation-specific information.
The condition number estimation requires floating-point operations.
See Section 15.6 of Higham (2002) for further details on computing the condition number of tridiagonal matrices.
