The routine may be called by the names d01asf or nagf_quad_dim1_inf_wtrig.
d01asf is based on the QUADPACK routine QAWFE (see Piessens et al. (1983)). It is an adaptive routine, designed to integrate a function of the form over a semi-infinite interval, where is either or .
Over successive intervals
integration is performed by the same algorithm as is used by d01anf. The intervals are of constant length
where represents the largest integer less than or equal to . Since equals an odd number of half periods, the integral contributions over succeeding intervals will alternate in sign when the function is positive and monotonically decreasing over . The algorithm, described in Piessens et al. (1983), incorporates a global acceptance criterion (as defined by Malcolm and Simpson (1976)) together with the -algorithm (see Wynn (1956)) to perform extrapolation. The local error estimation is described by Piessens et al. (1983).
If and , the routine uses the same algorithm as d01amf (with ).
In contrast to the other routines in Chapter D01, d01asf works only with an absolute error tolerance (epsabs). Over the interval it attempts to satisfy the absolute accuracy requirement
where , for and .
However, when difficulties occur during the integration over the th sub-interval such that the error flag
is nonzero, the accuracy requirement over subsequent intervals is relaxed. See Piessens et al. (1983) for more details.

Note:g should not return floating-point NaN (Not a Number) or infinity values, since these are not handled by d01asf. If your code inadvertently does return any NaNs or infinities, d01asf is likely to produce unexpected results.

In the cases , or , additional information about the cause of the error can be obtained from the array ierlst, as follows:
The maximum number of has been achieved on the th interval.
Occurrence of round-off error is detected and prevents the tolerance imposed on the th interval from being achieved.
Extremely bad integrand behaviour occurs at some points of the th interval.
The integration procedure over the th interval does not converge (to within the required accuracy) due to round-off in the extrapolation procedure invoked on this interval. It is assumed that the result on this interval is the best which can be obtained.
The integral over the th interval is probably divergent or slowly convergent. It must be noted that divergence can occur with any other value of .

A value of causes the printing of an error message and program execution will be halted; otherwise program execution continues. A value of means that an error message is printed while a value of means that it is not.
If halting is not appropriate, the value or is recommended. If message printing is undesirable, then the value is recommended. Otherwise, the value is recommended since useful values can be provided in some output arguments even when on exit. When the value or is used it is essential to test the value of ifail on exit.

6Error Indicators and Warnings
If on entry or , explanatory error messages are output on the current error message unit (as defined by x04aaf).
Errors or warnings detected by the routine:
Note: in some cases d01asf may return useful information.
The maximum number of subdivisions allowed with the given workspace has been reached without the accuracy requirements being achieved. Look at the integrand in order to determine the integration difficulties. If the position of a discontinuity or a singularity of algebraico-logarithmic type within the interval can be determined, the interval must be split up at this point and the integrator called on the subranges. If necessary, another integrator, which is designed for handling the type of difficulty involved, must be used. Alternatively, consider relaxing the accuracy requirements specified by epsabs or increasing the amount of workspace.
Round-off error prevents the requested tolerance from being achieved: .
Extremely bad integrand behaviour occurs around the sub-interval . The same advice applies as in the case of .
Round-off error is detected in the extrapolation table.
The requested tolerance cannot be achieved because the extrapolation does not increase the accuracy satisfactorily; the returned result is the best that can be obtained. The same advice applies as in the case of .
Look at the integrand in order to determine the integration difficulties. If the position of a local difficulty within the interval can be determined (e.g., a singularity of the integrand or its derivative, a peak, a discontinuity etc.) you will probably gain from splitting up the interval at this point and calling d01asf on the infinite subrange and an appropriate integrator on the finite subrange. Alternatively, consider relaxing the accuracy requirements specified by epsabs or increasing the amount of workspace.
The integral is probably divergent or slowly convergent.
