1 Purpose

f01jaf computes an estimate of the absolute condition number of a matrix function f at a real n×n matrix A in the 1-norm, where f is either the exponential, logarithm, sine, cosine, hyperbolic sine (sinh) or hyperbolic cosine (cosh). The evaluation of the matrix function, f(A), is also returned.

3 Description

The absolute condition number of f at A, condabs(f,A) is given by the norm of the Fréchet derivative of f, L(A), which is defined by
L(X) := maxE0 L(X,E) E ,  
where L(X,E) is the Fréchet derivative in the direction E. L(X,E) is linear in E and can, therefore, be written as
vec (L(X,E)) = K(X) vec(E) ,  
where the vec operator stacks the columns of a matrix into one vector, so that K(X) is n2×n2. f01jaf computes an estimate γ such that γ K(X) 1 , where K(X) 1 [ n-1 L(X) 1 , n L(X) 1 ] . The relative condition number can then be computed via
cond rel (f,A) = cond abs (f,A) A1 f(A) 1 .  
The algorithm used to find γ is detailed in Section 3.4 of Higham (2008).

5 Arguments

1: fun Character(*) Input
On entry: indicates which matrix function will be used.
The matrix exponential, eA, will be used.
The matrix sine, sin(A), will be used.
The matrix cosine, cos(A), will be used.
The hyperbolic matrix sine, sinh(A), will be used.
The hyperbolic matrix cosine, cosh(A), will be used.
The matrix logarithm, log(A), will be used.
Constraint: fun='EXP', 'SIN', 'COS', 'SINH', 'COSH' or 'LOG'.
2: n Integer Input
On entry: n, the order of the matrix A.
Constraint: n0.
3: a(lda,*) Real (Kind=nag_wp) array Input/Output
Note: the second dimension of the array a must be at least n.
On entry: the n×n matrix A.
On exit: the n×n matrix, f(A).
4: lda Integer Input
On entry: the first dimension of the array a as declared in the (sub)program from which f01jaf is called.
Constraint: ldan.
5: conda Real (Kind=nag_wp) Output
On exit: an estimate of the absolute condition number of f at A.
6: norma Real (Kind=nag_wp) Output
On exit: the 1-norm of A.
7: normfa Real (Kind=nag_wp) Output
On exit: the 1-norm of f(A).
8: 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 -1 or 1 is used it is essential to test the value of ifail on exit.
On exit: ifail=0 unless the routine detects an error or a warning has been flagged (see Section 6).

6 Error Indicators and Warnings

If on entry 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:
An internal error occurred when evaluating the matrix function f(A). Please contact NAG.
An internal error occurred when estimating the norm of the Fréchet derivative of f at A. Please contact NAG.
On entry, fun=value was an illegal value.
On entry, n=value.
Constraint: n0.
On entry, argument lda is invalid.
Constraint: ldan.
An unexpected error has been triggered by this routine. Please contact NAG.

7 Accuracy

f01jaf uses the norm estimation routine f04ydf to estimate a quantity γ, where γ K(X) 1 and K(X) 1 [ n-1 L(X) 1 , n L(X) 1 ] . For further details on the accuracy of norm estimation, see the documentation for f04ydf.

8 Parallelism and Performance

Background information to multithreading can be found in the Multithreading documentation.
f01jaf is threaded by NAG for parallel execution in multithreaded implementations of the NAG Library. In these implementations, this routine may make calls to the user-supplied functions from within an OpenMP parallel region. Thus OpenMP directives within the user functions can only be used if you are compiling the user-supplied function and linking the executable in accordance with the instructions in the Users' Note for your implementation.
f01jaf 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.

9 Further Comments

The matrix function is computed using one of three underlying matrix function routines:
Approximately 6n2 of real allocatable memory is required by the routine, in addition to the memory used by these underlying matrix function routines.
If only f(A) is required, without an estimate of the condition number, then it is far more efficient to use the appropriate matrix function routine listed above.
f01kaf can be used to find the condition number of the exponential, logarithm, sine, cosine, sinh or cosh matrix functions at a complex matrix.

10 Example

This example estimates the absolute and relative condition numbers of the matrix sinh function where
A = ( 2 1 3 1 3 −1 0 2 1 0 3 1 1 2 0 3 ) .
