Rcpp integration for GNU GSL vectors and matrices The GNU Scientific Library (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.
