naginterfaces.library.matop.complex_gen_matrix_cond_num(a, f, data=None)[source]

complex_gen_matrix_cond_num computes an estimate of the absolute condition number of a matrix function of a complex matrix in the -norm. Numerical differentiation is used to evaluate the derivatives of when they are required.

normafloat

The -norm of .

normfafloat

The -norm of .

Raises
NagValueError
(errno )

On entry, .

Constraint: .

(errno )

An internal error occurred when estimating the norm of the Fréchet derivative of at . Please contact NAG.

(errno )

An internal error occurred while evaluating the matrix function . You can investigate further by calling complex_gen_matrix_fun_num() with the matrix and the function .

Warns
NagCallbackTerminateWarning
(errno )

Termination requested in .

Notes

The absolute condition number of at , is given by the norm of the Fréchet derivative of , , which is defined by

where is the Fréchet derivative in the direction . is linear in and can, therefore, be written as

where the operator stacks the columns of a matrix into one vector, so that is . complex_gen_matrix_cond_num computes an estimate such that , where . The relative condition number can then be computed via

The algorithm used to find is detailed in Section 3.4 of Higham (2008).
