NAG AD Library
g01ea_a1w_f (prob_normal_a1w)

Note: a1w denotes that first order adjoints are computed in working precision; this has the corresponding argument type nagad_a1w_w_rtype. Also available is the t1w (first order tangent linear) mode, the interface of which is implied by replacing a1w by t1w throughout this document. Additionally, the p0w (passive interface, as alternative to the FL interface) mode is available and can be inferred by replacing of active types by the corresponding passive types. The method of codifying AD implementations in the routine name and corresponding argument types is described in the NAG AD Library Introduction.

1 Purpose

g01ea_a1w_f is the adjoint version of the primal routine g01eaf.

2 Specification

Fortran Interface
Subroutine g01ea_a1w_f ( ad_handle, tail, x, p, ifail)
Integer, Intent (Inout) :: ifail

C++ Header Interface
#include <nagad.h>
void g01ea_a1w_f_ ( void *&ad_handle, const char *tail, const nagad_a1w_w_rtype &x, nagad_a1w_w_rtype &p, Integer &ifail, const Charlen length_tail)
The routine may be called by the names g01ea_a1w_f or nagf_stat_prob_normal_a1w. The corresponding t1w and p0w variants of this routine are also available.

3 Description

g01ea_a1w_f is the adjoint version of the primal routine g01eaf.
g01eaf returns a one or two tail probability for the standard Normal distribution. For further information see Section 3 in the documentation for g01eaf.

5 Arguments

In addition to the arguments present in the interface of the primal routine, g01ea_a1w_f includes some arguments specific to AD.
A brief summary of the AD specific arguments is given below. For the remainder, links are provided to the corresponding argument from the primal routine. A tooltip popup for all arguments can be found by hovering over the argument name in Section 2 and in this section.
Note that the primal routine is a function whereas g01ea_a1w_f, is a subroutine, where the function value is returned in the additional output parameter, p.
1: ad_handle – Type (c_ptr) Input/Output
On entry: a handle to the AD configuration data object, as created by x10aa_a1w_f.
2: tail – character Input
3: xType (nagad_a1w_w_rtype) Input
4: pType (nagad_a1w_w_rtype) Output
On exit: a one or two tail probability for the standard Normal distribution.
5: ifail – Integer Input/Output

6 Error Indicators and Warnings

g01ea_a1w_f preserves all error codes from g01eaf and in addition can return:
