## 3Description

Given $m$ sequences of $n$ real data values ${x}_{\mathit{j}}^{\mathit{p}}$, for $\mathit{j}=0,1,\dots ,n-1$ and $\mathit{p}=1,2,\dots ,m$, c06rdf simultaneously calculates the quarter-wave Fourier cosine transforms of all the sequences defined by
 $x^kp = 1n (12x0p+ ∑ j=1 n-1 xjp×cos(j(2k-1)π2n)) , if ​ direct='F' ,$
or its inverse
 $xkp = 2n ∑ j= 0 n- 1 x^ j p × cos((2j-1)kπ2n ) , if ​ direct='B' ,$
where $k=0,1,\dots ,n-1$ and $p=1,2,\dots ,m$.
(Note the scale factor $\frac{1}{\sqrt{n}}$ in this definition.)
A call of c06rdf with ${\mathbf{direct}}=\text{'F'}$ followed by a call with ${\mathbf{direct}}=\text{'B'}$ will restore the original data.
The transform calculated by this routine can be used to solve Poisson's equation when the derivative of the solution is specified at the left boundary, and the solution is specified at the right boundary (see Swarztrauber (1977)).
The routine uses a variant of the fast Fourier transform (FFT) algorithm (see Brigham (1974)) known as the Stockham self-sorting algorithm, described in Temperton (1983), together with pre- and post-processing stages described in Swarztrauber (1982). Special coding is provided for the factors $2$, $3$, $4$ and $5$.

## 5Arguments

1: $\mathbf{direct}$Character(1) Input
On entry: if the forward transform as defined in Section 3 is to be computed, direct must be set equal to 'F'.
If the backward transform is to be computed, direct must be set equal to 'B'.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{direct}}=\text{'F'}$ or $\text{'B'}$.
2: $\mathbf{m}$Integer Input
On entry: $m$, the number of sequences to be transformed.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{m}}\ge 1$.
3: $\mathbf{n}$Integer Input
On entry: $n$, the number of real values in each sequence.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{n}}\ge 1$.
4: $\mathbf{x}\left({\mathbf{m}}×\left({\mathbf{n}}+2\right)\right)$Real (Kind=nag_wp) array Input/Output
On entry: the data must be stored in x as if in a two-dimensional array of dimension $\left(1:{\mathbf{m}},0:{\mathbf{n}}+1\right)$; each of the $m$ sequences is stored in a row of the array. In other words, if the data values of the $\mathit{p}$th sequence to be transformed are denoted by ${x}_{\mathit{j}}^{\mathit{p}}$, for $\mathit{j}=0,1,\dots ,n-1$ and $\mathit{p}=1,2,\dots ,m$, the first $mn$ elements of the array x must contain the values
 $x01 , x02 ,…, x0m , x11 , x12 ,…, x1m ,…, x n-1 1 , x n-1 2 ,…, x n-1 m .$
The $\left(n+1\right)$th and $\left(n+2\right)$th elements of each row ${x}_{n}^{\mathit{p}},{x}_{n+1}^{\mathit{p}}$, for $\mathit{p}=1,2,\dots ,m$, are required as workspace. These $2m$ elements may contain arbitrary values as they are set to zero by the routine.
On exit: the $m$ quarter-wave cosine transforms stored as if in a two-dimensional array of dimension $\left(1:{\mathbf{m}},0:{\mathbf{n}}+1\right)$. Each of the $m$ transforms is stored in a row of the array, overwriting the corresponding original sequence. If the $n$ components of the $\mathit{p}$th quarter-wave cosine transform are denoted by ${\stackrel{^}{x}}_{\mathit{k}}^{\mathit{p}}$, for $\mathit{k}=0,1,\dots ,n-1$ and $\mathit{p}=1,2,\dots ,m$, the $m\left(n+2\right)$ elements of the array x contain the values
5: $\mathbf{work}\left(*\right)$Real (Kind=nag_wp) array Workspace
Note: the dimension of the array work must be at least ${\mathbf{m}}×{\mathbf{n}}+2×{\mathbf{n}}+2×{\mathbf{m}}+15$.
The workspace requirements as documented for c06rdf may be an overestimate in some implementations.
On exit: ${\mathbf{work}}\left(1\right)$ contains the minimum workspace required for the current values of m and n with this implementation.
6: $\mathbf{ifail}$Integer Input/Output
On entry: ifail must be set to $0$, $-1$ or $1$ to set behaviour on detection of an error; these values have no effect when no error is detected.
A value of $0$ causes the printing of an error message and program execution will be halted; otherwise program execution continues. A value of $-1$ means that an error message is printed while a value of $1$ means that it is not.
If halting is not appropriate, the value $-1$ or $1$ is recommended. If message printing is undesirable, then the value $1$ is recommended. Otherwise, the value $0$ is recommended. When the value $-\mathbf{1}$ or $\mathbf{1}$ is used it is essential to test the value of ifail on exit.
On exit: ${\mathbf{ifail}}={\mathbf{0}}$ unless the routine detects an error or a warning has been flagged (see Section 6).

## 6Error Indicators and Warnings

If on entry ${\mathbf{ifail}}=0$ or $-1$, explanatory error messages are output on the current error message unit (as defined by x04aaf).
Errors or warnings detected by the routine:
${\mathbf{ifail}}=1$
On entry, ${\mathbf{m}}=⟨\mathit{\text{value}}⟩$.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{m}}\ge 1$.
${\mathbf{ifail}}=2$
On entry, ${\mathbf{n}}=⟨\mathit{\text{value}}⟩$.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{n}}\ge 1$.
${\mathbf{ifail}}=3$
On entry, ${\mathbf{direct}}=⟨\mathit{\text{value}}⟩$.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{direct}}=\text{'F'}$ or $\text{'B'}$.
${\mathbf{ifail}}=4$
An internal error has occurred in this routine. Check the routine call and any array sizes. If the call is correct then please contact NAG for assistance.

## 7Accuracy

Some indication of accuracy can be obtained by performing a subsequent inverse transform and comparing the results with the original sequence (in exact arithmetic they would be identical).

## 8Parallelism and Performance

c06rdf is threaded by NAG for parallel execution in multithreaded implementations of the NAG Library.
c06rdf 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 routine. Please also consult the Users' Note for your implementation for any additional implementation-specific information.

The time taken by c06rdf is approximately proportional to $nm\mathrm{log}\left(n\right)$, but also depends on the factors of $n$. c06rdf is fastest if the only prime factors of $n$ are $2$, $3$ and $5$, and is particularly slow if $n$ is a large prime, or has large prime factors.

## 10Example

This example reads in sequences of real data values and prints their quarter-wave cosine transforms as computed by c06rdf with ${\mathbf{direct}}=\text{'F'}$. It then calls the routine again with ${\mathbf{direct}}=\text{'B'}$ and prints the results which may be compared with the original data.
