Guile-numerics provides Guile bindings for the GNU Scientific
Library (GSL), libsndfile, FFTW and LAPACK. Most bindings are
automatically generated from the include files of the
libraries. This ensures the bindings are up-to-date. The
bindings includes support for the following:
- complex numbers in GSL context
- vector and matrix functions
- GSL BLAS
- linear algebra
- random number generators
- fast fourier transforms
- random distributions
- special functions
- monte carlo integration
- quasi random sequences
- permutations, combinations and sorting
- function integration
- function differentiation
- function minimization
- polynomial root finding
- chebyshev approximations
- function fitting
- reading and writing sound files
- fast fourier transforms through FFTW
- dgesv, zgesv, dgels, zgels functions from LAPACK
The test scripts for GSL have been taken from the examples in
the GSL reference manual. They both show that the bindings work
and serve as examples of how to properly call the functions
- Guile is
an implementation of the Scheme programming language.
Guile-numerics requires version 1.6 but may also work with
- The GNU Scientific
Library (GSL) is a numerical library written in ANSI C.
Guile-numerics has been used with version 1.2 and higher.
Libsndfile is a C library for reading and writing files
containing sampled sound. Guile-numerics provides support for
version 1.0 and higher.
- FFTW is a C library for
computing the Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) in one or more
dimensions, of both real and complex data, and of arbitrary
input size. Guile-numerics provides binding to version 3.0 and
- SWIG is a software
development tool that connects programs written in C and C++
with a variety of high-level programming languages.
Guile-numerics requires at least version 1.3.14.
- If you want to use the version from CVS, you also need
automake version 1.6 or higher and autoconf version 2.50 or
