VZ_POW_(3MVEC) Vector Math Library Functions VZ_POW_(3MVEC)

## NAME

vz_pow_, vc_pow_ - vector complex power functions

## SYNOPSIS

cc [__flag__... ] __file__... **-lmvec **[ __library__... ]

**void vz_pow_**(**int ***__n__, **double complex * restrict **__z__,

**int ***__stridez__, **double complex * restrict **__w__, **int ***__stridew__,

**double complex * restrict **__u__, **int ***__strideu__,

**double * **__tmp__);

**void vc_pow_**(**int ***__n__, **float complex * restrict **__z__,

**int ***__stridez__, **float complex * restrict **__w__, **int ***__stridew__,

**float complex * restrict **__u__, **int ***__strideu__,

**float * **__tmp__);

## DESCRIPTION

These functions evaluate the complex function__z__^__w__ for an entire vector of

values at once. The first parameter specifies the number of values to

compute. Subsequent parameters specify the argument and result vectors.

Each vector is described by a pointer to the first element and a stride,

which is the increment between successive elements. The last argument is

a pointer to scratch storage; this storage must be large enough to hold 3

* *__n__ consecutive values of the real type corresponding to the complex

type of the argument and result.

Specifically,**vz_pow_**(__n__, __z__, __sz__, __w__, __sw__, __u__, __su__, __tmp__) computes __u__[__i__ * *__su__] =

(__z__[__i__ * *__sz__])^(__w__[__i__ * *__sw__]) for each __i__ = 0, 1, ..., *__n__ - 1. The **vc_pow_()**

function performs the same computation for single precision data.

These functions are not guaranteed to deliver results that are identical

to the results of the cpow(3M) functions given the same arguments.

## USAGE

The element count *__n__ must be greater than zero. The strides for the

argument and result arrays can be arbitrary integers, but the arrays

themselves must not be the same or overlap. A zero stride effectively

collapses an entire vector into a single element. A negative stride

causes a vector to be accessed in descending memory order, but note that

the corresponding pointer must still point to the first element of the

vector to be used; if the stride is negative, this will be the highest-

addressed element in memory. This convention differs from the Level 1

BLAS, in which array parameters always refer to the lowest-addressed

element in memory even when negative increments are used.

These functions assume that the default round-to-nearest rounding

direction mode is in effect. On x86, these functions also assume that the

default round-to-64-bit rounding precision mode is in effect. The result

of calling a vector function with a non-default rounding mode in effect

is undefined.

Unlike the c99 cpow(3M) functions, the vector complex exponential

functions make no attempt to handle special cases and exceptions; they

simply use textbook formulas to compute a complex exponential in terms of

real elementary functions. As a result, these functions can raise

different exceptions and/or deliver different results from**cpow()**.
