# NAG Toolbox: nag_roots_withdraw_sys_deriv_rcomm (c05pd)

## Purpose

nag_roots_withdraw_sys_deriv_rcomm (c05pd) is a comprehensive reverse communication function that finds a solution of a system of nonlinear equations by a modification of the Powell hybrid method. You must provide the Jacobian.
Note: this function is scheduled to be withdrawn, please see c05pd in Advice on Replacement Calls for Withdrawn/Superseded Routines..

## Syntax

[irevcm, x, fvec, fjac, diag, r, qtf, w, lwsav, iwsav, rwsav, ifail] = c05pd(irevcm, x, fvec, fjac, diag, mode, r, qtf, w, lwsav, iwsav, rwsav, 'n', n, 'xtol', xtol, 'factor', factor)
[irevcm, x, fvec, fjac, diag, r, qtf, w, lwsav, iwsav, rwsav, ifail] = nag_roots_withdraw_sys_deriv_rcomm(irevcm, x, fvec, fjac, diag, mode, r, qtf, w, lwsav, iwsav, rwsav, 'n', n, 'xtol', xtol, 'factor', factor)
Note: the interface to this routine has changed since earlier releases of the toolbox:
Mark 23: lr no longer an optional input parameter
.

## Description

The system of equations is defined as:
 fi (x1,x2, … ,xn) = 0 ,   i = 1, 2, … , n . $fi (x1,x2,…,xn) = 0 , i= 1, 2, …, n .$
nag_roots_withdraw_sys_deriv_rcomm (c05pd) is based on the MINPACK routine HYBRJ (see Moré et al. (1980)). It chooses the correction at each step as a convex combination of the Newton and scaled gradient directions. The Jacobian is updated by the rank-1 method of Broyden. For more details see Powell (1970).

## Error Indicators and Warnings

Errors or warnings detected by the function:

Cases prefixed with W are classified as warnings and do not generate an error of type NAG:error_n. See nag_issue_warnings.

ifail = 1${\mathbf{ifail}}=1$
 On entry, n ≤ 0 ${\mathbf{n}}\le 0$, or xtol < 0.0 ${\mathbf{xtol}}<0.0$, or factor ≤ 0.0 ${\mathbf{factor}}\le 0.0$, or ldfjac < n $\mathit{ldfjac}<{\mathbf{n}}$, or mode = 2 ${\mathbf{mode}}=2$ and diag(i) ≤ 0.0 ${\mathbf{diag}}\left(i\right)\le 0.0$ for some i$i$, i = 1, 2, … , n $i=1,2,\dots ,{\mathbf{n}}$.
ifail = 2${\mathbf{ifail}}=2$
 On entry, irevcm < 0 ${\mathbf{irevcm}}<0$ or irevcm > 3 ${\mathbf{irevcm}}>3$.
W ifail = 3${\mathbf{ifail}}=3$
No further improvement in the approximate solution x is possible; xtol is too small.
W ifail = 4${\mathbf{ifail}}=4$
The iteration is not making good progress, as measured by the improvement from the last five Jacobian evaluations.
W ifail = 5${\mathbf{ifail}}=5$
The iteration is not making good progress, as measured by the improvement from the last ten iterations.
A value of ${\mathbf{ifail}}={\mathbf{4}}$ or 5${\mathbf{5}}$ may indicate that the system does not have a zero, or that the solution is very close to the origin (see Section [Accuracy]). Otherwise, rerunning nag_roots_withdraw_sys_deriv_rcomm (c05pd) from a different starting point may avoid the region of difficulty.

## Accuracy

If $\stackrel{^}{x}$ is the true solution and D$D$ denotes the diagonal matrix whose entries are defined by the array diag, then nag_roots_withdraw_sys_deriv_rcomm (c05pd) tries to ensure that
 ‖D(x − x̂)‖2 ≤ xtol × ‖Dx̂‖2 . $‖ D (x-x^) ‖2 ≤ xtol × ‖ D x^ ‖2 .$
If this condition is satisfied with xtol = 10k ${\mathbf{xtol}}={10}^{-k}$, then the larger components of Dx $Dx$ have k$k$ significant decimal digits. There is a danger that the smaller components of Dx $Dx$ may have large relative errors, but the fast rate of convergence of nag_roots_withdraw_sys_deriv_rcomm (c05pd) usually obviates this possibility.
If xtol is less than machine precision and the above test is satisfied with the machine precision in place of xtol, then the function exits with ${\mathbf{ifail}}={\mathbf{3}}$.
Note:  this convergence test is based purely on relative error, and may not indicate convergence if the solution is very close to the origin.
The test assumes that the functions and the Jacobian are coded consistently and that the functions are reasonably well behaved. If these conditions are not satisfied, then nag_roots_withdraw_sys_deriv_rcomm (c05pd) may incorrectly indicate convergence. The coding of the Jacobian can be checked using nag_roots_withdraw_sys_deriv_check (c05za). If the Jacobian is coded correctly, then the validity of the answer can be checked by rerunning nag_roots_withdraw_sys_deriv_rcomm (c05pd) with a lower value for xtol.

## Further Comments

The time required by nag_roots_withdraw_sys_deriv_rcomm (c05pd) to solve a given problem depends on n$n$, the behaviour of the functions, the accuracy requested and the starting point. The number of arithmetic operations executed by nag_roots_withdraw_sys_deriv_rcomm (c05pd) is about 11.5 × n2 $11.5×{n}^{2}$ to process each evaluation of the functions and about 1.3 × n3 $1.3×{n}^{3}$ to process each evaluation of the Jacobian. The timing of nag_roots_withdraw_sys_deriv_rcomm (c05pd) is strongly influenced by the time spent in the evaluation of the functions and the Jacobian.
Ideally the problem should be scaled so that, at the solution, the function values are of comparable magnitude.
