1 Purpose

c05qd is the AD Library version of the primal routine c05qdf. Based (in the C++ interface) on overload resolution, c05qd can be used for primal, tangent and adjoint evaluation. It supports tangents and adjoints of first order.

2 Specification

Fortran Interface
Subroutine c05qd_AD_f ( ad_handle, irevcm, n, x, fvec, xtol, ml, mu, epsfcn, mode, diag, factor, fjac, r, qtf, iwsav, rwsav, ifail)
Integer, Intent (In) :: n, ml, mu, mode
Integer, Intent (Inout) :: irevcm, iwsav(17), ifail
ADTYPE, Intent (In) :: xtol, epsfcn, factor
ADTYPE, Intent (Inout) :: x(n), fvec(n), diag(n), fjac(n,n), r(n*(n+1)/2), qtf(n), rwsav(4*n+10)
Type (c_ptr), Intent (Inout) :: ad_handle
Corresponding to the overloaded C++ function, the Fortran interface provides five routines with names reflecting the type used for active real arguments. The actual subroutine and type names are formed by replacing AD and ADTYPE in the above as follows:
when ADTYPE is Real(kind=nag_wp) then AD is p0w
when ADTYPE is Type(nagad_a1w_w_rtype) then AD is a1w
when ADTYPE is Type(nagad_t1w_w_rtype) then AD is t1w
C++ Header Interface
#include <dco.hpp>
#include <nagad.h>
namespace nag {
namespace ad {
void c05qd ( void *&ad_handle, Integer &irevcm, const Integer &n, ADTYPE x[], ADTYPE fvec[], const ADTYPE &xtol, const Integer &ml, const Integer &mu, const ADTYPE &epsfcn, const Integer &mode, ADTYPE diag[], const ADTYPE &factor, ADTYPE fjac[], ADTYPE r[], ADTYPE qtf[], Integer iwsav[], ADTYPE rwsav[], Integer &ifail)
The function is overloaded on ADTYPE which represents the type of active arguments. ADTYPE may be any of the following types:
Note: this function can be used with AD tools other than dco/c++. For details, please contact NAG.

3 Description

c05qd is the AD Library version of the primal routine c05qdf.
c05qdf is a comprehensive reverse communication routine that finds a solution of a system of nonlinear equations by a modification of the Powell hybrid method. For further information see Section 3 in the documentation for c05qdf.

6 Error Indicators and Warnings

c05qd preserves all error codes from c05qdf and in addition can return:
An unexpected AD error has been triggered by this routine. Please contact NAG.
See Section 4.8.2 in the NAG AD Library Introduction for further information.
The routine was called using a mode that has not yet been implemented.
On entry: ad_handle is nullptr.
This check is only made if the overloaded C++ interface is used with arguments not of type double.
A C++ exception was thrown.
The error message will show the details of the C++ exception text.
Dynamic memory allocation failed for AD.
See Section 4.8.1 in the NAG AD Library Introduction for further information.

7 Accuracy

Not applicable.

8 Parallelism and Performance

c05qd is not threaded in any implementation.
