s21caf evaluates the Jacobian elliptic functions sn, cn and dn.

2 Specification

Fortran Interface
Subroutine s21caf ( u, m, sn, cn, dn, ifail)
Integer, Intent (Inout) :: ifail
Real (Kind=nag_wp), Intent (In) :: u, m
Real (Kind=nag_wp), Intent (Out) :: sn, cn, dn
C Header Interface
#include <nag.h>
void  s21caf_ (const double *u, const double *m, double *sn, double *cn, double *dn, Integer *ifail)
The routine may be called by the names s21caf or nagf_specfun_jacellip_real.

3 Description

s21caf evaluates the Jacobian elliptic functions of argument u and argument m,
sn(um) = sinϕ, cn(um) = cosϕ, dn(um) = 1-msin2ϕ,  
where ϕ, called the amplitude of u, is defined by the integral
u=0ϕdθ 1-msin2θ .  
The elliptic functions are sometimes written simply as snu, cnu and dnu, avoiding explicit reference to the argument m.
Another nine elliptic functions may be computed via the formulae
cdu = cnu/dnu sdu = snu/dnu ndu = 1/dnu dcu = dnu/cnu ncu = 1/cnu scu = snu/cnu nsu = 1/snu dsu = dnu/snu csu = cnu/snu  
(see Abramowitz and Stegun (1972)).
s21caf is based on a procedure given by Bulirsch (1960), and uses the process of the arithmetic-geometric mean (16.9 in Abramowitz and Stegun (1972)). Constraints are placed on the values of u and m in order to avoid the possibility of machine overflow.

5 Arguments

1: u Real (Kind=nag_wp) Input
2: m Real (Kind=nag_wp) Input
On entry: the argument u and the argument m of the functions, respectively.
  • abs(u) λ , where λ = 1 / x02amf;
  • if abs(u) < 1 / λ , abs(m) λ .
3: sn Real (Kind=nag_wp) Output
4: cn Real (Kind=nag_wp) Output
5: dn Real (Kind=nag_wp) Output
On exit: the values of the functions snu, cnu and dnu, respectively.
6: ifail Integer Input/Output
On entry: ifail must be set to 0, -1 or 1 to set behaviour on detection of an error; these values have no effect when no error is detected.
A value of 0 causes the printing of an error message and program execution will be halted; otherwise program execution continues. A value of -1 means that an error message is printed while a value of 1 means that it is not.
If halting is not appropriate, the value -1 or 1 is recommended. If message printing is undesirable, then the value 1 is recommended. Otherwise, the value 0 is recommended. When the value -1 or 1 is used it is essential to test the value of ifail on exit.
On exit: ifail=0 unless the routine detects an error or a warning has been flagged (see Section 6).

6 Error Indicators and Warnings

If on entry ifail=0 or -1, explanatory error messages are output on the current error message unit (as defined by x04aaf).
Errors or warnings detected by the routine:
On entry, |u| is too large: |u|=value it must be less than value.
On entry, |m| is too large when used in conjunction with the supplied argument u: |m|=value it must be less than value.
An unexpected error has been triggered by this routine. Please contact NAG.

7 Accuracy

In principle the routine 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.

8 Parallelism and Performance

s21caf is not threaded in any implementation.
