1 Purpose

e05zk is the AD Library version of the primal routine e05zkf. Based (in the C++ interface) on overload resolution, e05zk can be used for primal, tangent and adjoint evaluation. It supports tangents and adjoints of first order.

2 Specification

Fortran Interface
Subroutine e05zk_AD_f ( optstr, iopts, liopts, opts, lopts, ifail)
Integer, Intent (In) :: liopts, lopts
Integer, Intent (Inout) :: iopts(liopts), ifail
ADTYPE, Intent (Inout) :: opts(lopts)
Character (*), Intent (In) :: optstr
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 e05zk ( handle_t &ad_handle, const char *optstr, Integer iopts[], const Integer &liopts, ADTYPE opts[], const Integer &lopts, 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

e05zk is the AD Library version of the primal routine e05zkf.
e05zkf either initializes or resets the optional parameter arrays or sets a single optional parameter for supported problem solving routines in Chapter E05. The following routines are supported: For further information see Section 3 in the documentation for e05zkf.

5 Arguments

In addition to the arguments present in the interface of the primal routine, e05zk 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: optstr – character Input
3: iopts(liopts) – Integer array Communication Array
4: liopts – Integer Input
5: opts(lopts) – ADTYPE array Communication Array
Please consult Overwriting of Inputs in the NAG AD Library Introduction.
6: lopts – Integer Input
7: ifail – Integer Input/Output

6 Error Indicators and Warnings

e05zk preserves all error codes from e05zkf 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.
