HI Oladipo,

  we don't have C++ wrapper in ROOT::Math for all the GSL special functions, only for those proposed for inclusion in the next C++ standard. The list is in the MathMore ref doc ( http:// ) or in the User guide.

However, when you build mathmore, it builds as well internally (look in root/mathmore/src/gsl-1.5) a libgsl.a which is not exposed, but you can eventually install and use for your application.   Best Regards
