The function may be called by the names: g01ftc, nag_stat_inv_cdf_landau or nag_deviates_landau.
g01ftc evaluates an approximation to the inverse of the Landau distribution function given by
(where is described in g01etcandg01mtc), using either linear or quadratic interpolation or rational approximations which mimic the asymptotic behaviour. Further details can be found in Kölbig and Schorr (1984).
It can also be used to generate Landau distributed random numbers in the range .

6Error Indicators and Warnings
Dynamic memory allocation failed.
See Section 3.1.2 in the Introduction to the NAG Library CL Interface for further information.
An internal error has occurred in this function. Check the function call and any array sizes. If the call is correct then please contact NAG for assistance.
