gsl: The GNU Scientific Library¶
The GNU Scientific Library
From the website above: The GNU Scientific Library (GSL) is a numerical library for C and C++ programmers. It is free software under the GNU General Public License.
The library provides a wide range of mathematical routines such as random number generators, special functions and least-squares fitting. There are over 1000 functions in total with an extensive test suite. If the variable SAGE_CHECK is exported to the value “yes” when building Sage, GSL’s test suite is run.
GSL mailing lists:
Help-gsl <email@example.com> users mailing list – for questions about installation, how GSL works and how it is used, or general questions concerning GSL.
Info-gsl <firstname.lastname@example.org> mailing list – announcements of new releases are made there.
None - GSL does not depend on any other Sage package to compile, link and pass all of GSL’s self-tests. Despite that fact, BLAS is listed as a dependency. (It comes with its own CBLAS implementation that is e.g. used when running the GSL test suite during installation; however, the Sage library only uses it as a fall-back, if e.g. BLAS library is not present.)
