G01ETF returns the value of the Landau distribution function , via the routine name.
|REAL (KIND=nag_wp) G01ETF
G01ETF evaluates an approximation to the Landau distribution function
is described in G01MTF
, using piecewise approximation by rational functions. Further details can be found in Kölbig and Schorr (1984)

On entry: the argument of the function.
6 Error Indicators and Warnings
There are no failure exits from this routine.
At least significant digits are usually correct, but occasionally only . Such accuracy is normally considered to be adequate for applications in experimental physics.
Because of the asymptotic behaviour of , which is of the order of , underflow may occur on some machines when is moderately large and negative.
This example evaluates at , and prints the results.
