voigt_hwhm - Half width at half maximum of Voigt's function

#include <cerf.h>

double voigt_hwhm ( double sigma, double gamma );

The function voigt_hwhm returns the half width at half maximum of the function voigt.

The function voigt returns Voigt's convolution

voigt(x,sigma,gamma) = integral G(t,sigma) L(x-t,gamma) dt

of a Gaussian

G(x,sigma) = 1/sqrt(2*pi)/|sigma| * exp(-x^2/2/sigma^2)

and a Lorentzian

L(x,gamma) = |gamma| / pi / ( x^2 + gamma^2 ),

with the integral extending from -infinity to +infinity.
