Description : GNU Scientific Library binding for S-Lang
The GNU Scientific Library (GSL) is a vast collection of robust and
well documented numerical functions. It includes support for many
special functions, random numbers, interpolation and integration
routines, and much more.
Many of the routines in the GSL may be made available to the S-lang
interpreter via the GSL modules included in this package.
The following GSL modules are available:
* gslsf: The GSL special function module. Currently, this module
provides an interface to nearly 200 GSL special functions.
* gslconst: The GSL constants module. This module defines many
constants such as CONST_MKSA_SPEED_OF_LIGHT, CONST_CGSM_BOLTZMANN,
* gslinterp: The GSL interpolation module, which includes routines
for linear interpolation, cubic splines, etc.
* gslrand: The GSL random number module. This module supports most
of GSL's random number generators and distributions.
* gslcdf: The GSL cumulative distribution function module.
* gslfft: The GSL fast-fourier transform module.
* gslcore: This is a module that must be loaded before any of the
above modules can be loaded. Its main purpose is to provide support
functions for the other GSL modules.
A preliminary version of the package is available at the apt-getable
The package will be collectively maintained by the Debian JED Group
