g01pt evaluates an approximation to the first moment of the Landau density function given by
where is described in g01mt, using piecewise approximation by rational functions. Further details can be found in Kölbig and Schorr (1984).
To obtain the value of , g01qt can be used.

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.
This example evaluates at , and prints the results.
