  Description     : Scythe Statistical C++ Library

>From their home page:
The Scythe Statistical Library is an open source C++ library for
statistical computation, written by Daniel Pemstein (Harvard University
and University of Illinois), Kevin M. Quinn (UC Berkeley), and Andrew
D. Martin (Washington University). It includes a suite of matrix
manipulation functions, a suite of pseudo-random number generators,
and a suite of numerical optimization routines. Programs written
using Scythe are generally much faster than those written in commonly
used interpreted languages, such as R and MATLAB, and can be compiled
on any system with the GNU GCC compiler (and perhaps with other C++
compilers). One of the primary design goals of the Scythe developers has
been ease of use for non-expert C++ programmers. We provide ease of use
through three primary mechanisms: (1) operator and function over-loading,
(2) numerous pre-fabricated utility functions, and (3) clear documentation
and example programs. Additionally, Scythe is quite flexible and entirely
extensible because the source code is available to all users under the
GNU General Public License.
