Algorithm 969: Computation of the Incomplete Gamma Function for Negative Values of the Argument. An algorithm for computing the incomplete gamma function γ*(a, z) for real values of the parameter a and negative real values of the argument z is presented. The algorithm combines the use of series expansions, Poincaré-type expansions, uniform asymptotic expansions, and recurrence relations, depending on the parameter region. A relative accuracy ∼10−13 in the parameter region (a, z) ∈ [− 500, 500] × [− 500, 0) can be obtained when computing the function γ*(a, z) with the Fortran 90 module IncgamNEG implementing the algorithm.
