The GNU Scientific Library (GSL) is a collection of routines for numeric computing. The routines have been written from scratch in C, and they present a modern API for C programmers, allowing wrappers to be written for very high-level languages. The source code is distributed under the GNU General Public License. More information about GSL appears in Chapter 3.
