The routine may be called by the names c06rcf or nagf_sum_fft_real_qtrsine_simple.
3Description
Given $m$ sequences of $n$ real data values ${x}_{\mathit{j}}^{\mathit{p}}$, for $\mathit{j}=1,2,\dots ,n$ and $\mathit{p}=1,2,\dots ,m$, c06rcf simultaneously calculates the quarter-wave Fourier sine transforms of all the sequences defined by
(Note the scale factor $\frac{1}{\sqrt{n}}$ in this definition.)
A call of c06rcf 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 solution is specified at the left boundary, and the derivative of 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: $\mathbf{m}$ – IntegerInput
On entry: $m$, the number of sequences to be transformed.
Constraint:
${\mathbf{m}}\ge 1$.
3: $\mathbf{n}$ – IntegerInput
On entry: $n$, the number of real values in each sequence.
Constraint:
${\mathbf{n}}\ge 1$.
4: $\mathbf{x}\left({\mathbf{m}}\times ({\mathbf{n}}+2)\right)$ – Real (Kind=nag_wp) arrayInput/Output
On entry: the data must be stored in x as if in a two-dimensional array of dimension $(1:{\mathbf{m}},1:{\mathbf{n}}+2)$; 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 $\mathit{j}=1,2,\dots ,n$ and $\mathit{p}=1,2,\dots ,m$, the first $mn$ elements of the array x must contain the values
The $(n+1)$th and $(n+2)$th elements of each row ${x}_{n+1}^{\mathit{p}},{x}_{n+2}^{\mathit{p}}$, 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 sine transforms stored as if in a two-dimensional array of dimension $(1:{\mathbf{m}},1:{\mathbf{n}}+2)$. 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 sine transform are denoted by ${\hat{x}}_{\mathit{k}}^{\mathit{p}}$, for $\mathit{k}=1,2,\dots ,n$ and $\mathit{p}=1,2,\dots ,m$, the $m(n+2)$ elements of the array x contain the values
5: $\mathbf{work}\left(*\right)$ – Real (Kind=nag_wp) arrayWorkspace
Note: the dimension of the array work
must be at least
${\mathbf{m}}\times {\mathbf{n}}+2\times {\mathbf{n}}+2\times {\mathbf{m}}+15$.
The workspace requirements as documented for c06rcf 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: $\mathbf{ifail}$ – IntegerInput/Output
On entry: ifail must be set to $0$, $\mathrm{-1}$ 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 $\mathrm{-1}$ means that an error message is printed while a value of $1$ means that it is not.
If halting is not appropriate, the value $\mathrm{-1}$ 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 $\mathrm{-1}$, 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, ${\mathbf{m}}=\u27e8\mathit{\text{value}}\u27e9$.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{m}}\ge 1$.
${\mathbf{ifail}}=2$
On entry, ${\mathbf{n}}=\u27e8\mathit{\text{value}}\u27e9$.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{n}}\ge 1$.
${\mathbf{ifail}}=3$
On entry, ${\mathbf{direct}}=\u27e8\mathit{\text{value}}\u27e9$.
Constraint: ${\mathbf{direct}}=\text{'F'}$ or $\text{'B'}$.
${\mathbf{ifail}}=4$
An internal error has occurred in this routine.

If the call is correct then please contact NAG for assistance.
${\mathbf{ifail}}=-99$
An unexpected error has been triggered by this routine. Please
contact NAG.

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
Background information to multithreading can be found in the Multithreading documentation.
c06rcf is threaded by NAG for parallel execution in multithreaded implementations of the NAG Library.
c06rcf 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.
9Further Comments
The time taken by c06rcf is approximately proportional to $nm\mathrm{log}\left(n\right)$, but also depends on the factors of $n$. c06rcf 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 sine transforms as computed by c06rcf 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.
