Calculate the theoretical variance of the power of a function expanded in spherical-cap Slepian functions for a given spherical harmonic degree.

Usage

call SHSlepianVar (l, galpha, galpha_order, lmax, kmax, sff, variance, exitstatus)

Parameters

l : input, integer
The spherical harmonic degree used to calculate the theoretical variance.
galpha : input, real(dp), dimension (lmax+1, kmax)
A matrix of spherical-cap Slepian functions obtained from SHReturnTapers or SHReturnTapersM.
galpha_order : input, integer, dimension (kmax)
The angular orders of the spherical-cap Slepian functions in galpha.
lmax : input, integer
The spherical harmonic bandwidth of the Slepian functions.
kmax : input, integer
The maximum number of Slepian functions to use when calculating the variance.
sff : input, real(dp), dimension (lmax+1)
The global power spectrum of the function.
variance : output, real(dp)
The theoretical variance of the spectral estimate for degree l.
exitstatus : output, optional, integer
If present, instead of executing a STOP when an error is encountered, the variable exitstatus will be returned describing the error. 0 = No errors; 1 = Improper dimensions of input array; 2 = Improper bounds for input variable; 3 = Error allocating memory; 4 = File IO error.

Description

SHSlepianVar will compute the theoretical variance of the power of a function expanded in spherical-cap Slepian functions for a given spherical harmonic degree. This routine takes as input the spherical harmonic coefficients of the spherical-cap Slepian functions as obtained by a call to SHReturnTapers, and only the first KMAX Slepian functions in the matrix GALPHA are used to compute the variance.
