NAG CL Interface
g01etc returns the value of the Landau distribution function .
The function may be called by the names: g01etc, nag_stat_prob_landau or nag_prob_landau.
evaluates an approximation to the Landau distribution function
is described in g01mtc
, using piecewise approximation by rational functions. Further details can be found in Kölbig and Schorr (1984)

On entry: the argument of the function.
Error Indicators and Warnings
At least significant digits are usually correct, but occasionally only . Such accuracy is normally considered to be adequate for applications in experimental physics.
Because of the asymptotic behaviour of , which is of the order of , underflow may occur on some machines when is moderately large and negative.
Parallelism and Performance
g01etc is not threaded in any implementation.
This example evaluates at , and prints the results.
