# NAG Library Routine Document

## 1Purpose

g01euf returns the value of the Vavilov distribution function ${\Phi }_{V}\left(\lambda \text{;}\kappa ,{\beta }^{2}\right)$, via the routine name.
It is intended to be used after a call to g01zuf.

## 2Specification

Fortran Interface
 Function g01euf ( x,
 Real (Kind=nag_wp) :: g01euf Integer, Intent (Inout) :: ifail Real (Kind=nag_wp), Intent (In) :: x, rcomm(322)
#include nagmk26.h
 double g01euf_ (const double *x, const double rcomm[], Integer *ifail)

## 3Description

g01euf evaluates an approximation to the Vavilov distribution function ${\Phi }_{V}\left(\lambda \text{;}\kappa ,{\beta }^{2}\right)$ given by
 $ΦVλ;κ,β2=∫-∞λϕVλ;κ,β2dλ,$
where $\varphi \left(\lambda \right)$ is described in g01muf. The method used is based on Fourier expansions. Further details can be found in Schorr (1974).

## 5Arguments

1:     $\mathbf{x}$ – Real (Kind=nag_wp)Input
On entry: the argument $\lambda$ of the function.
2:     $\mathbf{rcomm}\left(322\right)$ – Real (Kind=nag_wp) arrayCommunication Array
On entry: this must be the same argument rcomm as returned by a previous call to g01zuf.
3:     $\mathbf{ifail}$ – IntegerInput/Output
On entry: ifail must be set to $0$, $-1\text{​ or ​}1$. If you are unfamiliar with this argument you should refer to Section 3.4 in How to Use the NAG Library and its Documentation for details.
For environments where it might be inappropriate to halt program execution when an error is detected, the value $-1\text{​ or ​}1$ is recommended. If the output of error messages is undesirable, then the value $1$ is recommended. Otherwise, if you are not familiar with this argument, the recommended value is $0$. When the value $-\mathbf{1}\text{​ or ​}\mathbf{1}$ is used it is essential to test the value of ifail on exit.
On exit: ${\mathbf{ifail}}={\mathbf{0}}$ unless the routine detects an error or a warning has been flagged (see Section 6).

## 6Error Indicators and Warnings

If on entry ${\mathbf{ifail}}=0$ or $-1$, explanatory error messages are output on the current error message unit (as defined by x04aaf).
Errors or warnings detected by the routine:
${\mathbf{ifail}}=1$
Either the initialization routine has not been called prior to the first call of this routine or a communication array has become corrupted.
${\mathbf{ifail}}=-99$
An unexpected error has been triggered by this routine. Please contact NAG.
See Section 3.9 in How to Use the NAG Library and its Documentation for further information.
${\mathbf{ifail}}=-399$

## 7Accuracy

At least five significant digits are usually correct.

## 8Parallelism and Performance

g01euf is not threaded in any implementation.

g01euf can be called repeatedly with different values of $\lambda$ provided that the values of $\kappa$ and ${\beta }^{2}$ remain unchanged between calls. Otherwise, g01zuf must be called again. This is illustrated in Section 10.

## 10Example

This example evaluates ${\Phi }_{V}\left(\lambda \text{;}\kappa ,{\beta }^{2}\right)$ at $\lambda =0.1$, $\kappa =2.5$ and ${\beta }^{2}=0.7$, and prints the results.
