  Wed. September 10th, 6:53pm at FreeGeek -- 1731 SE 10th Ave.

 Speaker: Jonathan Leto 
 Topic:   Scientific Computing with Math::GSL 

This talk will be an introduction to doing scientific computing with 
Perl and Math::GSL.  This module provides access to functions from the 
GNU Scientific Library via Perl code.

Why would you want to do that?  Using the Perl interpreter's easy and 
fast I/O, string processing, and managed memory reduces programming 
time while GSL's optimized numerical library (compiled C) gives you 
access to a variety of mathematical routines to do the heavy lifting.


You do not need to know Perl or bring a lab coat.  You should bring your 
scientist friends (steal their lab coat?) and it helps if you know how 
to program in some language (FORTRAN anyone?), or something about math.

As always, social hour at the Lucky Lab after the meeting.
