1  Purpose

nag_moment_2_landau (g01qtc) returns the value of the second moment Φ2x of the Landau density function.

2  Specification

#include <nag.h>
#include <nagg01.h>
double  nag_moment_2_landau (double x)

3  Description

nag_moment_2_landau (g01qtc) evaluates an approximation to the second moment Φ2 x of the Landau density function given by
Φ2x=1Φx -xλ2ϕλdλ,
where ϕλ is described in nag_prob_density_landau (g01mtc), using piecewise approximation by rational functions. Further details can be found in Kölbig and Schorr (1984).
To obtain the value of Φ1x, nag_moment_1_landau (g01ptc) can be used.

4  References

5  Arguments

1:     xdoubleInput
On entry: the argument x of the function.

6  Error Indicators and Warnings

None.

7  Accuracy

At least 7 significant digits are usually correct, but occasionally only 6. Such accuracy is normally considered to be adequate for applications in experimental physics.

8  Further Comments

None.

9  Example

This example evaluates Φ2x at x=0.5, and prints the results.
