1 Purpose

f07fj is the AD Library version of the primal routine f07fjf (dpotri). Based (in the C++ interface) on overload resolution, f07fj can be used for primal, tangent and adjoint evaluation. It supports tangents and adjoints of first order.

2 Specification

Fortran Interface
Subroutine f07fj_AD_f ( ad_handle, uplo, n, a, lda, ifail)
Integer, Intent (In) :: n, lda
Integer, Intent (Inout) :: ifail
ADTYPE, Intent (Inout) :: a(lda,*)
Character (1), Intent (In) :: uplo
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 f07fj ( handle_t &ad_handle, const char *uplo, const Integer &n, ADTYPE a[], const Integer &lda, 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

f07fj is the AD Library version of the primal routine f07fjf (dpotri).
f07fjf (dpotri) computes the inverse of a real symmetric positive definite matrix A, where A has been factorized by f07fdf. For further information see Section 3 in the documentation for f07fjf (dpotri).

5 Arguments

In addition to the arguments present in the interface of the primal routine, f07fj 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: uplo – character Input
3: n – Integer Input
4: a(lda, *) – ADTYPE array Input/Output
Please consult Overwriting of Inputs in the NAG AD Library Introduction.
5: lda – Integer Input
6: ifail – Integer Input/Output
On entry: must be set to 0, -1  or  1.
On exit: any errors are indicated as described in Section 6.

6 Error Indicators and Warnings

f07fj uses the standard NAG ifail mechanism. Any errors indicated via info values returned by f07fjf may be indicated with the same value returned by ifail. In addition, this routine may 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.

7 Accuracy

Not applicable.

8 Parallelism and Performance

f07fj is not threaded in any implementation.

10 Example

The following examples are variants of the example for f07fjf (dpotri), modified to demonstrate calling the NAG AD Library.
Description of the primal example.
This example computes the inverse of the matrix A, where
A= ( 4.16 -3.12 0.56 -0.10 -3.12 5.03 -0.83 1.18 0.56 -0.83 0.76 0.34 -0.10 1.18 0.34 1.18 ) .  
Here A is symmetric positive definite and must first be factorized by f07fd.
