34 Multidimensional Root-Finding
This chapter describes functions for multidimensional root-finding (solving nonlinear systems with n equations in n unknowns). The library provides low level components for a variety of iterative solvers and convergence tests. These can be combined by the user to achieve the desired solution, with full access to the intermediate steps of the iteration. Each class of methods uses the same framework, so that you can switch between solvers at runtime without needing to recompile your program. Each instance of a solver keeps track of its own state, allowing the solvers to be used in multi-threaded programs. The solvers are based on the original Fortran library minpack.
The header file ‘gsl_multiroots.h’ contains prototypes for the multidimensional root finding functions and related declarations.
