public: static Complex Faddeeva( Complex z )
static member Faddeeva : z : Complex -> Complex
The Faddeeva function w(z) is related to the error function with a complex argument.
It also has an integral representation.
It appears in the computation of the Voigt line profile function V(x;σ,γ).
Near the origin, w(z) ≈ 1. To accurately determine w(z) - 1 in this region, use the Erf(Complex) function. Away from the origin near the large negative imaginary axis, the magnitude w(z) increases rapidly and may overflow.
