# feval

multiple evaluation

[z]=feval(x,y,f)
[z]=feval(x,f)

### Arguments

x,y

two vectors

f

a function or a character string (for Fortran or C call)

### Description

Multiple evaluation of a function for one or two arguments of vector type :

z=feval(x,f)

returns the vector z defined by z(i)=f(x(i))

z=feval(x,y,f)

returns the matrix z such as z(i,j)=f(x(i),y(j))

f is an external (function or routine) accepting on one or two arguments which are supposed to be real. The result returned by f can be real or complex. In case of a Fortran call, the function f must be defined in the subroutine fevaltable.c (in directory SCI/modules/differential_equations/src/c).

### Examples

deff('[z]=f(x,y)','z=x^2+y^2');
feval(1:10,1:5,f)
deff('[z]=f(x,y)','z=x+%i*y');
feval(1:10,1:5,f)
feval(1:10,1:5,'parab')   //See ffeval.f file
feval(1:10,'parab')
// For dynamic link (see example ftest in ffeval.f)
// you can use the link command (the parameters depend on the machine):
// unix('make ftest.o');link('ftest.o','ftest'); feval(1:10,1:5,'ftest')
