## SYNOPSIS

function [est, v, w, iter] = onenormest (varargin)

## DESCRIPTION

```% -*- texinfo -*-
% @deftypefn {Function File} {[@var{est}, @var{v}, @var{w}, @var{iter}] =} onenormest (@var{a}, @var{t})
% @deftypefnx {Function File} {[@var{est}, @var{v}, @var{w}, @var{iter}] =} onenormest (@var{apply}, @var{apply_t}, @var{n}, @var{t})
%
% Apply Higham and Tisseur's randomized block 1-norm estimator to
% matrix @var{a} using @var{t} test vectors.  If @var{t} exceeds 5, then
% only 5 test vectors are used.
%
% If the matrix is not explicit, e.g., when estimating the norm of
% @code{inv (@var{A})} given an LU factorization, @code{onenormest} applies
% @var{A} and its conjugate transpose through a pair of functions
% @var{apply} and @var{apply_t}, respectively, to a dense matrix of size
% @var{n} by @var{t}.  The implicit version requires an explicit dimension
% @var{n}.
%
% Returns the norm estimate @var{est}, two vectors @var{v} and
% @var{w} related by norm
% @code{(@var{w}, 1) = @var{est} * norm (@var{v}, 1)},
% and the number of iterations @var{iter}.  The number of
% iterations is limited to 10 and is at least 2.
