// top doc page /** \page MathMore MathMore library @b MathMore provides an advanced collection of functions and C++ classes for HEP numerical computing. This is an extension of the functionality provided by the \ref MathCore. The current set includes classes and functions for:
The mathematical functions are implemented as a set of free functions in the namespace \em ROOT::Math. The naming used for the special functions is the same proposed for the C++ standard (see C++ standard extension proposal document).
The MathMore library is implemented wrapping in C++ the GNU Scientific Library (GSL).
To build MathMore you need to have first GSL installed somewhere in your system. A version of GSL larger or equal 1.8 is required. A tar file of GSL can be downloaded from the GSL Web site, or (for version 1.8) from here. Windows binaries, compiled using Visual Studio 7.1 can be downloaded from this location.
MathMore (and its %ROOT CINT dictionary) can be built within %ROOT whenever a GSL library is found in the system. Optionally the GSL library and header file location can be specified in the %ROOT configure script with configure --with-gsl-incdir=... --with-gsl-libdir=...
MathMore can be built also a stand-alone library (without requiring %ROOT) downloding the tar file from the Web. Note that in this case the library will NOT contain the dictionary information and therefore cannot be used interactivly.
The current standalone version of MathMore can be downloaded here.
To build the library run first the script configure --with-gsl="gsl_dir_location" and then make. Do configure --help to see options available in configuring, like defining the installation directory. Run also make install to install the library and include files and make check to build the tests.
