6Error Indicators and Warnings
Dynamic memory allocation failed.
See Section 3.1.2 in the Introduction to the NAG Library CL Interface for further information.
An internal error has occurred in this function. Check the function call and any array sizes. If the call is correct then please contact NAG for assistance.
See Section 7.5 in the Introduction to the NAG Library CL Interface for further information.

On entry, . Constraint: . is too large for an accurate result to be returned and the function returns zero.
Since the function is oscillatory, the absolute error rather than the relative error is important. Let be the absolute error in the function, and be the relative error in the argument. If is somewhat larger than the machine precision, then we have:
(provided is within machine bounds).
For small the error amplification is insignificant and thus the absolute error is effectively bounded by the machine precision.
For medium and large , the error behaviour is oscillatory and its amplitude grows like . Therefore, it is impossible to calculate the functions with any accuracy when . Note that this value of is much smaller than the minimum value of for which the function overflows.
8Parallelism and Performance
Background information to multithreading can be found in the Multithreading documentation.
s19abc is not threaded in any implementation.
This example reads values of the argument from a file, evaluates the function at each value of and prints the results.
