# NAG Library Function Documentnag_dsum (f16elc)

## 1  Purpose

nag_dsum (f16elc) sums the elements of a real vector.

## 2  Specification

 #include #include
 double nag_dsum (Integer n, const double x[], Integer incx, NagError *fail)

## 3  Description

nag_dsum (f16elc) returns the sum
 $x1 + x2 + ⋯ + xn$
of the elements of an $n$-element real vector $x$.
If ${\mathbf{n}}=0$ on entry, nag_dsum (f16elc) returns the value $0$.

## 5  Arguments

1:    $\mathbf{n}$IntegerInput
On entry: $n$, the number of elements in $x$.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{n}}\ge 0$.
2:    $\mathbf{x}\left[\mathit{dim}\right]$const doubleInput
Note: the dimension, dim, of the array x must be at least $\mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,1+\left({\mathbf{n}}-1\right)×\left|{\mathbf{incx}}\right|\right)$.
On entry: the $n$-element vector $x$.
If ${\mathbf{incx}}>0$, ${x}_{\mathit{i}}$ must be stored in ${\mathbf{x}}\left[\left(\mathit{i}-1\right)×{\mathbf{incx}}\right]$, for $\mathit{i}=1,2,\dots ,{\mathbf{n}}$.
If ${\mathbf{incx}}<0$, ${x}_{\mathit{i}}$ must be stored in ${\mathbf{x}}\left[\left({\mathbf{n}}-\mathit{i}\right)×\left|{\mathbf{incx}}\right|\right]$, for $\mathit{i}=1,2,\dots ,{\mathbf{n}}$.
Intermediate elements of x are not referenced. If ${\mathbf{n}}=0$, x is not referenced and may be NULL.
3:    $\mathbf{incx}$IntegerInput
On entry: the increment in the subscripts of x between successive elements of $x$.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{incx}}\ne 0$.
4:    $\mathbf{fail}$NagError *Input/Output
The NAG error argument (see Section 2.7 in How to Use the NAG Library and its Documentation).

## 6  Error Indicators and Warnings

NE_ALLOC_FAIL
Dynamic memory allocation failed.
See Section 2.3.1.2 in How to Use the NAG Library and its Documentation for further information.
On entry, argument $〈\mathit{\text{value}}〉$ had an illegal value.
NE_INT
On entry, ${\mathbf{incx}}=〈\mathit{\text{value}}〉$.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{incx}}\ne 0$.
On entry, ${\mathbf{n}}=〈\mathit{\text{value}}〉$.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{n}}\ge 0$.
NE_INTERNAL_ERROR
See Section 2.7.6 in How to Use the NAG Library and its Documentation for further information.
NE_NO_LICENCE
Your licence key may have expired or may not have been installed correctly.
See Section 2.7.5 in How to Use the NAG Library and its Documentation for further information.

## 7  Accuracy

The BLAS standard requires accurate implementations which avoid unnecessary over/underflow (see Section 2.7 of Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms Technical (BLAST) Forum (2001)).

## 8  Parallelism and Performance

nag_dsum (f16elc) is not threaded in any implementation.

None.

## 10  Example

This example computes the sum of the elements of
 $x = 1.1,10.2,11.5,-2.7,9.2T .$
