cerfcx, erfcx - underflow-compensated complementary error function

#include <cerf.h>

double _Complex cerfcx ( double _Complex z );

double erfcx ( double x );

The function cerfcx is an underflow-compensated variant of the complex error function: erfcx(z) = exp(z^2) erfc(z).

The function erfcx takes a real argument and returns a real result.

The implementation of cerfcx is a thin wrapper around Faddeeva's function w_of_z.

The implementation of erfcx is self-contained, and improves upon the SLATEC DERFC function (or an erfcx function derived therefrom) or Cody's CALERF function (from netlib.org/specfun), while retaining near machine precision in accuracy.

Related complex error functions in liberfc: w_of_z(3), dawson(3), voigt(3), cerf(3), erfi(3).

The real error function comes with recent versions of glibc, as requested by the C99 standard: erf(3)
