Parameters
ecomplex

, the coefficient of .

acomplex

, the coefficient of .

bcomplex

, the coefficient of .

ccomplex

, the coefficient of .

dcomplex

, the constant coefficient.

Returns
zerocomplex, ndarray, shape

contains the th root.

errestfloat, ndarray, shape

contains an approximate error estimate for the th root.

Raises
NagValueError
(errno )

On entry, .

Constraint:

(errno )

The companion matrix cannot be formed without overflow.

(errno )

Failure to converge in lapackeig.zhseqr.

Notes

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

quartic_complex attempts to find the roots of the quartic equation

where , , , and are complex coefficients with . The roots are located by finding the eigenvalues of the associated (upper Hessenberg) companion matrix given by

The eigenvalues are obtained by a call to lapackeig.zhseqr. Further details can be found in Further Comments.

To obtain the roots of a cubic equation, cubic_complex() can be used.
