Estimating the Condition Number: LAPACK Computational Routines

This section describes the LAPACK routines for estimating the condition number of a matrix. The condition number is used for analyzing the errors in the solution of a system of linear equations (see Error Analysis). Since the condition number may be arbitrarily large when the matrix is nearly singular, the routines actually compute the reciprocal condition number.

Product and Performance Information

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
