NAG Toolbox: nag_specfun_jactheta_real (s21cc)


    1  Purpose
    2  Syntax
    7  Accuracy
    9  Example


nag_specfun_jactheta_real (s21cc) returns the value of one of the Jacobian theta functions θ0x,q, θ1x,q, θ2x,q, θ3x,q or θ4x,q for a real argument x and non-negative q<1, via the function name.


[result, ifail] = s21cc(k, x, q)
[result, ifail] = nag_specfun_jactheta_real(k, x, q)


nag_specfun_jactheta_real (s21cc) evaluates an approximation to the Jacobian theta functions θ0x,q, θ1x,q, θ2x,q, θ3x,q and θ4x,q given by
θ0x,q = 1+2n=1-1nqn2cos2nπx, θ1x,q = 2n=0-1nq n+12 2sin2n+1πx, θ2x,q = 2n=0q n+12 2cos2n+1πx, θ3x,q = 1+2n=1qn2cos2nπx, θ4x,q = θ0x,q,  
where x and q (the nome) are real with 0q<1.
These functions are important in practice because every one of the Jacobian elliptic functions (see nag_specfun_jacellip_complex (s21cb)) can be expressed as the ratio of two Jacobian theta functions (see Whittaker and Watson (1990)). There is also a bewildering variety of notations used in the literature to define them. Some authors (e.g., Section 16.27 of Abramowitz and Stegun (1972)) define the argument in the trigonometric terms to be x instead of πx. This can often lead to confusion, so great care must therefore be exercised when consulting the literature. Further details (including various relations and identities) can be found in the references.
nag_specfun_jactheta_real (s21cc) is based on a truncated series approach. If t differs from x or -x by an integer when 0t12 , it follows from the periodicity and symmetry properties of the functions that θ1x,q=±θ1t,q and θ3x,q=±θ3t,q. In a region for which the approximation is sufficiently accurate, θ1 is set equal to the first term (n=0) of the transformed series
θ1t,q=2λπe-λt2n=0-1ne-λ n+12 2sinh2n+1λt  
and θ3 is set equal to the first two terms (i.e., n1) of
θ3t,q=λπe-λt2 1+2n=1e-λn2cosh2nλt ,  
where λ= π2/ logeq . Otherwise, the trigonometric series for θ1t,q and θ3t,q are used. For all values of x, θ0 and θ2 are computed from the relations θ0x,q=θ312-x,q and θ2x,q=θ112-x,q.

Compulsory Input Parameters

1:     k int64int32nag_int scalar
Denotes the function θkx,q to be evaluated. Note that k=4 is equivalent to k=0.
Constraint: 0k4.
2:     x – double scalar
The argument x of the function.
3:     q – double scalar
The argument q of the function.
Constraint: 0.0q<1.0.

Optional Input Parameters


Output Parameters

1:     result – double scalar
The result of the function.
2:     ifail int64int32nag_int scalar
ifail=0 unless the function detects an error (see Error Indicators and Warnings).

Error Indicators and Warnings

Errors or warnings detected by the function:

Cases prefixed with W are classified as warnings and do not generate an error of type NAG:error_n. See nag_issue_warnings.

On entry,k<0,
W  ifail=2
The evaluation has been abandoned because the function value is infinite. The result is returned as the largest machine representable number (see nag_machine_real_largest (x02al)).
An unexpected error has been triggered by this routine. Please contact NAG.
Your licence key may have expired or may not have been installed correctly.
Dynamic memory allocation failed.


In principle the function is capable of achieving full relative precision in the computed values. However, the accuracy obtainable in practice depends on the accuracy of the standard elementary functions such as sin and cos.
