1 Purpose

d01tc is the AD Library version of the primal routine d01tcf. Based (in the C++ interface) on overload resolution, d01tc can be used for primal, tangent and adjoint evaluation. It supports tangents and adjoints of first order.

2 Specification

Fortran Interface
Subroutine d01tc_AD_f ( itype, a, b, c, d, n, weight, abscis, ifail)
Integer, Intent (In) :: itype, n
Integer, Intent (Inout) :: ifail
ADTYPE, Intent (In) :: a, b, c, d
ADTYPE, Intent (Out) :: weight(n), abscis(n)
Type (c_ptr), Intent (Inout) :: ad_handle
Corresponding to the overloaded C++ function, the Fortran interface provides five routines with names reflecting the type used for active real arguments. The actual subroutine and type names are formed by replacing AD and ADTYPE in the above as follows:
when ADTYPE is Real(kind=nag_wp) then AD is p0w
when ADTYPE is Type(nagad_a1w_w_rtype) then AD is a1w
when ADTYPE is Type(nagad_t1w_w_rtype) then AD is t1w
C++ Interface
#include <dco.hpp>
#include <nagad.h>
namespace nag {
namespace ad {
void d01tc ( handle_t &ad_handle, const Integer &itype, const ADTYPE &a, const ADTYPE &b, const ADTYPE &c, const ADTYPE &d, const Integer &n, ADTYPE weight[], ADTYPE abscis[], Integer &ifail)
The function is overloaded on ADTYPE which represents the type of active arguments. ADTYPE may be any of the following types:
Note: this function can be used with AD tools other than dco/c++. For details, please contact NAG.

3 Description

d01tc is the AD Library version of the primal routine d01tcf.
d01tcf returns the weights (normal or adjusted) and abscissae for a Gaussian integration rule with a specified number of abscissae. Six different types of Gauss rule are allowed. For further information see Section 3 in the documentation for d01tcf.

5 Arguments

In addition to the arguments present in the interface of the primal routine, d01tc 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.
1: ad_handlenag::ad::handle_t Input/Output
On entry: a configuration object that holds information on the differentiation strategy. Details on setting the AD strategy are described in AD handle object in the NAG AD Library Introduction.
2: itype – Integer Input
3: aADTYPE Input
4: bADTYPE Input
5: cADTYPE Input
6: dADTYPE Input
7: n – Integer Input
8: weight(n) – ADTYPE array Output

10: ifail – Integer Input/Output

6 Error Indicators and Warnings

d01tc preserves all error codes from d01tcf and in addition can return:
An unexpected AD error has been triggered by this routine. Please contact NAG.
