RcppGSL: 'Rcpp' Integration for 'GNU GSL' Vectors and Matrices
'Rcpp' integration for 'GNU GSL' vectors and matrices
The 'GNU Scientific Library' (or 'GSL') is a collection of numerical routines for
scientific computing. It is particularly useful for C and C++ programs as it
provides a standard C interface to a wide range of mathematical routines
such as special functions, permutations, combinations, fast fourier
transforms, eigensystems, random numbers, quadrature, random distributions,
quasi-random sequences, Monte Carlo integration, N-tuples, differential
equations, simulated annealing, numerical differentiation, interpolation,
series acceleration, Chebyshev approximations, root-finding, discrete
Hankel transforms physical constants, basis splines and wavelets. There
are over 1000 functions in total with an extensive test suite.
The 'RcppGSL' package provides an easy-to-use interface between 'GSL' data
structures and R using concepts from 'Rcpp' which is itself a package that
eases the interfaces between R and C++.
This package also serves as a prime example of how to build a package
that uses 'Rcpp' to connect to another third-party library. The 'autoconf'
script, 'inline' plugin and example package can all be used as a stanza to
write a similar package against another library.
