# wofz {NORMT3}

### Description

Computes the Faddeeva function of a complex valued argument. This function is \exp{-z^2}*erfc(-iz) .

### Usage

wofz(z)

### Arguments

- z
- Argument of Faddeeva function

### Details

Computes the Faddeeva function of a complex valued argument. This function is \exp{-z^2}*erfc(-iz)

This function calls FORTRAN code (algorithm TOMS 680) which computes the Faddeeva function.

### Values

The Faddeeva function, w(z)
