1 Purpose

e02bb is the AD Library version of the primal routine e02bbf. Based (in the C++ interface) on overload resolution, e02bb can be used for primal, tangent and adjoint evaluation. It supports tangents and adjoints of first order.

2 Specification

Fortran Interface
Subroutine e02bb_AD_f ( ncap7, lamda, c, x, s, ifail)
Integer, Intent (In) :: ncap7
Integer, Intent (Inout) :: ifail
ADTYPE, Intent (In) :: lamda(ncap7), c(ncap7), x
ADTYPE, Intent (Out) :: s
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 e02bb ( handle_t &ad_handle, const Integer &ncap7, const ADTYPE lamda[], const ADTYPE c[], const ADTYPE &x, ADTYPE &s, 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

e02bb is the AD Library version of the primal routine e02bbf.

5 Arguments

In addition to the arguments present in the interface of the primal routine, e02bb 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: ncap7 – Integer Input
3: lamda(ncap7) – ADTYPE array Input
4: c(ncap7) – ADTYPE array Input
5: xADTYPE Input
6: sADTYPE Output
7: ifail – Integer Input/Output

6 Error Indicators and Warnings

e02bb preserves all error codes from e02bbf and in addition can return:
An unexpected AD error has been triggered by this routine. Please contact NAG.
See Error Handling in the NAG AD Library Introduction for further information.
The routine was called using a strategy that has not yet been implemented.
See AD Strategies in the NAG AD Library Introduction for further information.
A C++ exception was thrown.
The error message will show the details of the C++ exception text.
Dynamic memory allocation failed for AD.
See Error Handling in the NAG AD Library Introduction for further information.

10 Example

The following examples are variants of the example for e02bbf, modified to demonstrate calling the NAG AD Library.
Description of the primal example.
Evaluate at nine equally-spaced points in the interval 1.0x9.0 the cubic spline with (augmented) knots 1.0, 1.0, 1.0, 1.0, 3.0, 6.0, 8.0, 9.0, 9.0, 9.0, 9.0 and normalized cubic B-spline coefficients 1.0, 2.0, 4.0, 7.0, 6.0, 4.0, 3.0.
The example program is written in a general form that will enable a cubic spline with n¯ intervals, in its normalized cubic B-spline form, to be evaluated at m equally-spaced points in the interval lamda(4)xlamda(n¯+4). The program is self-starting in that any number of datasets may be supplied.
