Notes

No equivalent traditional C interface for this routine exists in the NAG Library.

quadratic_complex attempts to find the roots of the quadratic equation (where , and are complex coefficients), by carefully evaluating the ‘standard’ closed formula

It is based on the function CQDRTC from Smith (1967).

Note: it is not necessary to scale the coefficients prior to calling the function.
