f01jbc computes an estimate of the absolute condition number of a matrix function at a real matrix in the -norm. Numerical differentiation is used to evaluate the derivatives of when they are required.
On exit: iflag should either be unchanged from its entry value of zero, or may be set nonzero to indicate that there is a problem in evaluating the function ; for instance may not be defined. If iflag is returned as nonzero then f01jbc will terminate the computation, with NE_INT, NE_INT_2 or NE_USER_STOP.
2: – IntegerInput
On entry: , the number of function values required.
3: – const ComplexInput
On entry: the points at which the function is to be evaluated.
4: – ComplexOutput

5: – Nag_Comm *
Pointer to structure of type Nag_Comm; the following members are relevant to f.
user – double *
iuser – Integer *
p – Pointer
The type Pointer will be void *. Before calling f01jbc you may allocate memory and initialize these pointers with various quantities for use by f when called from f01jbc (see Section 3.1.1 in the Introduction to the NAG Library CL Interface).
Note:f should not return floating-point NaN (Not a Number) or infinity values, since these are not handled by f01jbc. If your code inadvertently does return any NaNs or infinities, f01jbc is likely to produce unexpected results.
5: – Nag_Comm *
The NAG communication argument (see Section 3.1.1 in the Introduction to the NAG Library CL Interface).
On exit: an estimate of the absolute condition number of at .
8: – double *Output

8Parallelism and Performance
Background information to multithreading can be found in the Multithreading documentation.
f01jbc is threaded by NAG for parallel execution in multithreaded implementations of the NAG Library. In these implementations, this function may make calls to the user-supplied functions from within an OpenMP parallel region. Thus OpenMP pragmas within the user functions can only be used if you are compiling the user-supplied function and linking the executable in accordance with the instructions in the Users' Note for your implementation. You must also ensure that you use the NAG communication argument comm in a thread safe manner, which is best achieved by only using it to supply read-only data to the user functions.
f01jbc makes calls to BLAS and/or LAPACK routines, which may be threaded within the vendor library used by this implementation. Consult the documentation for the vendor library for further information.
Please consult the X06 Chapter Introduction for information on how to control and interrogate the OpenMP environment used within this function. Please also consult the Users' Note for your implementation for any additional implementation-specific information.
The matrix function is computed using the underlying matrix function routine f01elc. Approximately of real allocatable memory is required by the routine, in addition to the memory used by the underlying matrix function routine.
If only is required, without an estimate of the condition number, then it is far more efficient to use the underlying matrix function routine.
