### LAPACK-3: computes the reciprocal pivot growth factor norm(A)/norm(U)

```NAME
LAPACK-3 - computes the reciprocal pivot growth factor norm(A)/norm(U)

SYNOPSIS
DOUBLE PRECISION FUNCTION ZLA_RPVGRW( N, NCOLS, A, LDA, AF, LDAF )

IMPLICIT     NONE

INTEGER      N, NCOLS, LDA, LDAF

COMPLEX*16   A( LDA, * ), AF( LDAF, * )

PURPOSE
ZLA_RPVGRW computes the reciprocal pivot growth factor norm(A)/norm(U).
The "max absolute element" norm is used. If this is
much less than 1, the stability of the LU factorization of the
(equilibrated) matrix A could be poor. This also means that the
solution X, estimated condition numbers, and error bounds could be
unreliable.

ARGUMENTS
N       (input) INTEGER
The number of linear equations, i.e., the order of the
matrix A.  N >= 0.

NCOLS   (input) INTEGER
The number of columns of the matrix A. NCOLS >= 0.

A       (input) DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (LDA,N)
On entry, the N-by-N matrix A.

LDA     (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array A.  LDA >= max(1,N).

AF      (input) DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (LDAF,N)
The factors L and U from the factorization
A = P*L*U as computed by ZGETRF.

LDAF    (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array AF.  LDAF >= max(1,N).
