FN
The Fullerton Function Library.


FN is a FORTRAN90 library which approximates elementary and special functions using Chebyshev polynomials; functions include Airy, Bessel I, Bessel J, Bessel K, Bessel Y, beta, confluent hypergeometric, cosine integral, Dawson's integral, digamma (psi), error, exponential integral, gamma, hyperbolic cosine integral, hyperbolic sine integral, incomplete gamma, log gamma, logarithmic integral, Pochhammer, psi, sine integral, Spence; by Wayne Fullerton.

The original version of the library provided routines for single precision complex, single precision real, and double precision real arguments and used the prefixes "C" and "D" to indicate the complex and double precision versions.

This scheme has been modified for consistency, and also to avoid conflict with the names of functions commonly provided by various compilers. The prefixes "C4_", "R4_" and "R8_" are used to indicate functions for single precision complex, single precision real, and double precision real arguments. For example, the sine function can be calculated by the functions C4_SIN, R4_SIN or R8_SIN.

The original, true, correct version of FN is available through NETLIB: http://www.netlib.org/fn/index.html.
