# NAG Library Function Documentnag_matop_complex_gen_matrix_cond_std (f01kac)

## 1  Purpose

nag_matop_complex_gen_matrix_cond_std (f01kac) computes an estimate of the absolute condition number of a matrix function $f$ of a complex $n$ by $n$ matrix $A$ in the $1$-norm, where $f$ is either the exponential, logarithm, sine, cosine, hyperbolic sine (sinh) or hyperbolic cosine (cosh). The evaluation of the matrix function, $f\left(A\right)$, is also returned.

## 2  Specification

 #include #include
 void nag_matop_complex_gen_matrix_cond_std (Nag_MatFunType fun, Integer n, Complex a[], Integer pda, double *conda, double *norma, double *normfa, NagError *fail)

## 3  Description

The absolute condition number of $f$ at $A$, ${\mathrm{cond}}_{\mathrm{abs}}\left(f,A\right)$ is given by the norm of the Fréchet derivative of $f$, $L\left(A\right)$, which is defined by
 $LX := maxE≠0 LX,E E ,$
where $L\left(X,E\right)$ is the Fréchet derivative in the direction $E$. $L\left(X,E\right)$ is linear in $E$ and can therefore be written as
 $vec LX,E = KX vecE ,$
where the $\mathrm{vec}$ operator stacks the columns of a matrix into one vector, so that $K\left(X\right)$ is ${n}^{2}×{n}^{2}$. nag_matop_complex_gen_matrix_cond_std (f01kac) computes an estimate $\gamma$ such that $\gamma \le {‖K\left(X\right)‖}_{1}$, where ${‖K\left(X\right)‖}_{1}\in \left[{n}^{-1}{‖L\left(X\right)‖}_{1},n{‖L\left(X\right)‖}_{1}\right]$. The relative condition number can then be computed via
 $cond rel f,A = cond abs f,A A1 fA 1 .$
The algorithm used to find $\gamma$ is detailed in Section 3.4 of Higham (2008).

NE_INTERNAL_ERROR
An internal error has occurred in this function. Check the function call and any array sizes. If the call is correct then please contact NAG for assistance.
An internal error occurred when estimating the norm of the Fréchet derivative of $f$ at $A$. Please contact NAG.
An internal error occurred when evaluating the matrix function $f\left(A\right)$. You can investigate further by calling nag_matop_complex_gen_matrix_exp (f01fcc)nag_matop_complex_gen_matrix_log (f01fjc) or nag_matop_complex_gen_matrix_fun_std (f01fkc) with the matrix $A$.

## 7  Accuracy

nag_matop_complex_gen_matrix_cond_std (f01kac) uses the norm estimation function nag_linsys_complex_gen_norm_rcomm (f04zdc) to estimate a quantity $\gamma$, where $\gamma \le {‖K\left(X\right)‖}_{1}$ and ${‖K\left(X\right)‖}_{1}\in \left[{n}^{-1}{‖L\left(X\right)‖}_{1},n{‖L\left(X\right)‖}_{1}\right]$. For further details on the accuracy of norm estimation, see the documentation for nag_linsys_complex_gen_norm_rcomm (f04zdc).

## 8  Parallelism and Performance

nag_matop_complex_gen_matrix_cond_std (f01kac) is threaded by NAG for parallel execution in multithreaded implementations of the NAG Library.
nag_matop_complex_gen_matrix_cond_std (f01kac) 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.
In these implementations, this may make calls to the user supplied functions from within an OpenMP parallel region. Thus OpenMP directives within the user functions should be avoided, unless you are using the same OpenMP runtime library (which normally means using the same compiler) as that used to build your NAG Library implementation, as listed in the Installers' Note.

Approximately $6{n}^{2}$ of complex allocatable memory is required by the routine, in addition to the memory used by the underlying matrix function routines nag_matop_complex_gen_matrix_exp (f01fcc)nag_matop_complex_gen_matrix_log (f01fjc) or nag_matop_complex_gen_matrix_fun_std (f01fkc).
nag_matop_complex_gen_matrix_cond_std (f01kac) returns the matrix function $f\left(A\right)$. This is computed using nag_matop_complex_gen_matrix_exp (f01fcc) if ${\mathbf{fun}}=\mathrm{Nag_Exp}$, nag_matop_complex_gen_matrix_log (f01fjc) if ${\mathbf{fun}}=\mathrm{Nag_Loga}$ and nag_matop_complex_gen_matrix_fun_std (f01fkc) otherwise. If only $f\left(A\right)$ is required, without an estimate of the condition number, then it is far more efficient to use nag_matop_complex_gen_matrix_exp (f01fcc)nag_matop_complex_gen_matrix_log (f01fjc) or nag_matop_complex_gen_matrix_fun_std (f01fkc) directly.
nag_matop_real_gen_matrix_cond_std (f01jac) can be used to find the condition number of the exponential, logarithm, sine, cosine, sinh or cosh at a real matrix.
