8.0.0. libnum: Numerical Library

This library, built on top of GSL, LAPACK, and other Lush libraries, provides easy calls to some commonly-used numerical functions. This library only has a small number of commonly-used functions, as tiny subset of the huge collection available through the GSL and LAPACK low-level interfaces.

The present library is provided because calling the low-level GSL/LAPACK functions generally requires a little work (converting Lush data structures to the native data structures of the library and vice-versa). The low-level function sometimes yield better speed and lower memory consumption that the functions in this section.
