nag_matop_real_gen_matrix_cond_std (f01jac)


nag_matop_real_gen_matrix_cond_std (f01jac) computes an estimate of the absolute condition number of a matrix function f at a real n by n matrix A in the 1-norm, where f is either the exponential, logarithm, sine, cosine, hyperbolic sine (sinh) or hyperbolic cosine (cosh). The evaluation of the matrix function, fA, is also returned.

void  nag_matop_real_gen_matrix_cond_std (Nag_MatFunType fun, Integer n, double a[], Integer pda, double *conda, double *norma, double *normfa, NagError *fail)


The absolute condition number of f at A, condabsf,A is given by the norm of the Fréchet derivative of f, LA, which is defined by
LX := maxE0 LX,E E ,  
where LX,E is the Fréchet derivative in the direction E. LX,E is linear in E and can therefore be written as
vec LX,E = KX vecE ,  
where the vec operator stacks the columns of a matrix into one vector, so that KX is n2×n2. nag_matop_real_gen_matrix_cond_std (f01jac) computes an estimate γ such that γ KX 1 , where KX 1 n-1 LX 1 , n LX 1 . The relative condition number can then be computed via
cond rel f,A = cond abs f,A A1 fA 1 .  
The algorithm used to find γ is detailed in Section 3.4 of Higham (2008).

nag_matop_real_gen_matrix_cond_std (f01jac) uses the norm estimation function nag_linsys_real_gen_norm_rcomm (f04ydc) to estimate a quantity γ, where γ KX 1  and KX 1 n-1 LX 1 , n LX 1 .

Parallelism and Performance

nag_matop_real_gen_matrix_cond_std (f01jac) is threaded by NAG for parallel execution in multithreaded implementations of the NAG Library. In these implementations, this function may make calls to the user-supplied functions from within an OpenMP parallel region. Thus OpenMP pragmas within the user functions can only be used if you are compiling the user-supplied function and linking the executable in accordance with the instructions in the Users' Note for your implementation.
nag_matop_real_gen_matrix_cond_std (f01jac) makes calls to BLAS and/or LAPACK routines, which may be threaded within the vendor library used by this implementation. Consult the documentation for the vendor library for further information.
Please consult the x06 Chapter Introduction for information on how to control and interrogate the OpenMP environment used within this function. Please also consult the Users' Note for your implementation for any additional implementation-specific information.

Further Comments

The matrix function is computed using one of three underlying matrix function routines:
Approximately 6n2 of real allocatable memory is required by the routine, in addition to the memory used by these underlying matrix function routines.
If only fA is required, without an estimate of the condition number, then it is far more efficient to use the appropriate matrix function routine listed above.
nag_matop_complex_gen_matrix_cond_std (f01kac) can be used to find the condition number of the exponential, logarithm, sine, cosine, sinh or cosh matrix functions at a complex matrix.


This example estimates the absolute and relative condition numbers of the matrix sinh function where
A = 2 1 3 1 3 -1 0 2 1 0 3 1 1 2 0 3 .
