NAG AD Library
s15ad_a1w_f (erfc_real_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

s15ad_a1w_f is the adjoint version of the primal routine s15adf.

2 Specification

Fortran Interface
Subroutine s15ad_a1w_f ( ad_handle, x, res, ifail)
Integer, Intent (Inout) :: ifail
Type (nagad_a1w_w_rtype), Intent (In) :: x
Type (nagad_a1w_w_rtype), Intent (Out) :: res
Type (c_ptr), Intent (Inout) :: ad_handle
C++ Header Interface
#include <nagad.h>
void s15ad_a1w_f_ ( void *&ad_handle, const nagad_a1w_w_rtype &x, nagad_a1w_w_rtype &res, Integer &ifail)
The routine may be called by the names s15ad_a1w_f or nagf_specfun_erfc_real_a1w. The corresponding t1w and p0w variants of this routine are also available.

3 Description

s15ad_a1w_f is the adjoint version of the primal routine s15adf.
s15adf returns the value of the complementary error function, erfc(x), via the function name. For further information see Section 3 in the documentation for s15adf.

5 Arguments

In addition to the arguments present in the interface of the primal routine, s15ad_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 s15ad_a1w_f, is a subroutine, where the function value is returned in the additional output parameter, res.
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: xType (nagad_a1w_w_rtype) Input
3: resType (nagad_a1w_w_rtype) Output
On exit: the value of the complementary error function, erfc(x).
4: ifail – Integer Input/Output

6 Error Indicators and Warnings
