## Online documentationThere is complete documentation online on johndlamb.net. This is up to date for most functions and classes. ## Producing documentationOn unix-like platforms, once you have downloaded and configured the source code you should can produce documentation using: make doc You will need to install doxygen and several other packages. You should can produce the same documentation on any platform. I haven’t tried. ## Available featuresExpect at least the following features of the gnu Scientific Library to be available: - Error handling (and exception handling)
- Elementary functions and mathematical constants
- Complex numbers
- Polynomials
- Special functions
- Vectors and matrices
- Permutations and combinations
- blas support
- Linear algebra
- Eigensystems
- Fast Fourier transforms
- Numerical integration
- Random number generation
- Quasi-random number sequences
- Random number distributions
- Statistics
- Histograms
- Monte Carlo integration
- Simulated annealing
- Ordinary differential equations
- Interpolation
- Numerical differentiation
- Chebyshev approximations
- Series acceleration
- Wavelet transforms
- Discrete Hankel transforms
- Interpolation
- One dimensional root finding
- One dimensional minimisation
- Multidimensional root finding
- Multidimensional minimisation
- Least-squares fitting
- Nonlinear least-squares fitting
- Basis splines
- Physical constants
- Ieee floating-point arithmetic
## Features not implementedThe following features are not implemented. - Multisets
- Sorting
- N-tuples
Multisets are available in C++ as std::multiset<double> and so a gsl version is unnecessary. Similarly the gsl sorting algorithms offer no benefit over std::sort<T>. The n-tuple functions in gsl are useful for reading and writing C-style structs to C-style file handles and so specifically C++-style versions of them have little obvious value. Since ccgsl is a header-only package it must avoid defining constants directly. So, for example, physical constants are defined as inline functions returning a constant value. There is little benefit in using these rather than the gsl constants. But they are included for completeness. Last modified: Sun 23 Sep 2012 07:50 pm |
