Hello all :)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm just beginning trying to use compiled version of several simple functions. And right at the beginning, I stumble onto a “Numerical error” error message which puzzle me…

Here is my simple code :

Basically, how to debug such error message (which is quite vague…)Code (Text):11/18/11 12:51:07 In[18]:= \[Epsilon]IntrinsicSiliciumC =

Compile[{{\[Omega], _Real}, {L, _Real}},

Module[{\[Omega]0, \[Epsilon]0, \[Epsilon]Inf, c = 299792458},

\[Omega]0 = (66 10^14)/(c (10^9) ) L;

\[Epsilon]0 = 11.87;

\[Epsilon]Inf = 1.035;

\[Epsilon]Inf + ((\[Epsilon]0 - \[Epsilon]Inf) \[Omega]0^2)/(\

\[Omega]^2 + \[Omega]0^2)

]

, CompilationTarget -> "C"];

11/18/11 13:05:18 In[23]:= \[Epsilon]IntrinsicSiliciumC[1., 1.]

11/18/11 13:05:19 During evaluation of In[23]:= CompiledFunction::cfne: Numerical error encountered; proceeding with uncompiled evaluation. >>

11/18/11 13:05:19 Out[23]= 1.0402

Thanks in advance :)
