TOMS446
Ten Subroutines for the Manipulation of Chebyshev Series


TOMS446 is a FORTRAN90 library which implements ACM TOMS algorithm 446, for the manipulation of Chebyshev series, by Roger Broucke.

While the text of many ACM TOMS algorithms is available online through ACM: http://www.acm.org/pubs/calgo or NETLIB: http://www.netlib.org/toms/index.html, most of the early algorithms are not available. This is one of them. I typed it in.

TOMS446 is available in a C version and a C++ version and a FORTRAN77 version and a FORTRAN90 version and a MATLAB version.
