﻿ g01et Method
g01et returns the value of the Landau distribution function $\Phi \left(\lambda \right)$.

# Syntax

C#
```public static double g01et(
double x
)```
Visual Basic
```Public Shared Function g01et ( _
x As Double _
) As Double```
Visual C++
```public:
static double g01et(
double x
)```
F#
```static member g01et :
x : float -> float
```

#### Parameters

x
Type: System..::..Double
On entry: the argument $\lambda$ of the function.

#### Return Value

g01et returns the value of the Landau distribution function $\Phi \left(\lambda \right)$.

# Description

g01et evaluates an approximation to the Landau distribution function $\Phi \left(\lambda \right)$ given by
 $Φλ=∫-∞λϕλdλ,$
where $\varphi \left(\lambda \right)$ is described in g01mt, using piecewise approximation by rational functions. Further details can be found in Kölbig and Schorr (1984).

# Error Indicators and Warnings

There are no failure exits from this routine.

# Accuracy

At least $7$ significant digits are usually correct, but occasionally only $6$. Such accuracy is normally considered to be adequate for applications in experimental physics.
Because of the asymptotic behaviour of $\Phi \left(\lambda \right)$, which is of the order of $\mathrm{exp}\left[-\mathrm{exp}\left(-\lambda \right)\right]$, underflow may occur on some machines when $\lambda$ is moderately large and negative.

None.

None.

# Example

This example evaluates $\Phi \left(\lambda \right)$ at $\lambda =0.5$, and prints the results.
