NAG FL Interface
s18gcf (struve_​i0ml0)

1 Purpose

s18gcf returns the value of I0x-L0x where I0x is the modified Bessel function of the first kind of order zero, and L0x is the modified Struve function of order 0, via the function name.

2 Specification

Fortran Interface
Function s18gcf ( x, ifail)
Real (Kind=nag_wp) :: s18gcf
Integer, Intent (Inout) :: ifail
Real (Kind=nag_wp), Intent (In) :: x
C Header Interface
#include <nag.h>
double  s18gcf_ (const double *x, Integer *ifail)
The routine may be called by the names s18gcf or nagf_specfun_struve_i0ml0.

3 Description

s18gcf evaluates an approximation to I0x-L0x.
Please consult the NIST Digital Library of Mathematical Functions for a detailed discussion of the Struve function including special cases, transformations, relations and asymptotic approximations.
The approximation method used by this routine is based on Chebyshev expansions.

5 Arguments

1: x Real (Kind=nag_wp) Input
On entry: the argument x of the function.
Constraint: x 0.0.
2: ifail Integer Input/Output
On entry: ifail must be set to 0, -1 or 1. If you are unfamiliar with this argument you should refer to Section 4 in the Introduction to the NAG Library FL Interface for details.
For environments where it might be inappropriate to halt program execution when an error is detected, the value -1 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 -1 or 1 is used it is essential to test the value of ifail on exit.
On exit: ifail=0 unless the routine detects an error or a warning has been flagged (see Section 6).

6 Error Indicators and Warnings

If on entry 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:
On entry, x=value.
Constraint: x0.0.
An unexpected error has been triggered by this routine. Please contact NAG.

7 Accuracy

The Chebyshev coefficients used by this routine are internally represented to 20 digits of precision. Calling the number of digits of precision in the floating-point arithmetic being used t, then clearly the maximum number of correct digits in the results obtained is limited by p=mint,20.
Apart from this, rounding errors in internal arithmetic may result in a slight loss of accuracy, but it is reasonable to assume that the result is accurate to within a small multiple of the machine precision.

8 Parallelism and Performance

s18gcf is not threaded in any implementation.
