FASTGL Fast computation of Gauss-Legendre Quadrature Points and Weights

FASTGL is a C library which carries out the fast computation of the K-th value and weight of an N-point Gauss-Legendre quadrature rule, by Ignace Bogaert.

Languages:

FASTGL is available in a C version and a C++ version and a FORTRAN90 version and a MATLAB version and a Python version.
