The function may be called by the names: f01kkc or nag_matop_complex_gen_matrix_frcht_log.
For a matrix with no eigenvalues on the closed negative real line, the principal matrix logarithm is the unique logarithm whose spectrum lies in the strip .
The Fréchet derivative of the matrix logarithm of is the unique linear mapping such that for any matrix
The derivative describes the first order effect of perturbations in on the logarithm .
f01kkc uses the algorithm of Al–Mohy et al. (2012) to compute and . The principal matrix logarithm is computed using a Schur decomposition, a Padé approximant and the inverse scaling and squaring method. The Padé approximant is then differentiated in order to obtain the Fréchet derivative . If is nonsingular but has negative real eigenvalues, the principal logarithm is not defined, but f01kkc will return a non-principal logarithm and Fréchet derivative.

has been computed using an IEEE double precision Padé approximant, although the arithmetic precision is higher than IEEE double precision.
For a normal matrix (for which ), the Schur decomposition is diagonal and the computation of the matrix logarithm reduces to evaluating the logarithm of the eigenvalues of and then constructing using the Schur vectors. This should give a very accurate result. In general, however, no error bounds are available for the algorithm. The sensitivity of the computation of and is worst when has an eigenvalue of very small modulus or has a complex conjugate pair of eigenvalues lying close to the negative real axis.

8Parallelism and Performance
Background information to multithreading can be found in the Multithreading documentation.
f01kkc is threaded by NAG for parallel execution in multithreaded implementations of the NAG Library.
f01kkc 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 cost of the algorithm is floating-point operations. The complex allocatable memory required is approximately ; see Al–Mohy et al. (2012) for further details.
If the matrix logarithm alone is required, without the Fréchet derivative, then f01fjc should be used. If the condition number of the matrix logarithm is required then f01kjc should be used. The real analogue of this function is f01jkc.
This example finds the principal matrix logarithm and the Fréchet derivative , where
