Dynamic memory allocation failed.
See Section 3.1.2 in the Introduction to the NAG Library CL Interface for further information.
An internal error has occurred in this function. Check the function call and any array sizes. If the call is correct then please contact NAG for assistance.

On entry, and ; the integral is undefined.
In principle s21bfc is capable of producing full machine precision. However, round-off errors in internal arithmetic will result in slight loss of accuracy. This loss should never be excessive as the algorithm does not involve any significant amplification of round-off error. It is reasonable to assume that the result is accurate to within a small multiple of the machine precision.
8Parallelism and Performance
s21bfc is not threaded in any implementation.
You should consult the S Chapter Introduction, which shows the relationship between this function and the Carlson definitions of the elliptic integrals. In particular, the relationship between the argument-constraints for both forms becomes clear.
For more information on the algorithms used to compute and , see the function documents for s21bbcands21bcc, respectively.
If you wish to input a value of phi outside the range allowed by this function you should refer to Section 17.4 of Abramowitz and Stegun (1972) for useful identities. For example, . A parameter can be replaced by one less than unity using .
This example simply generates a small set of nonextreme arguments that are used with the function to produce the table of results.
