Series Acceleration

The functions described in this chapter accelerate the convergence of a series using the Levin u-transform. This method takes a small number of terms from the start of a series and uses a systematic approximation to compute an extrapolated value and an estimate of its error. The u-transform works for both convergent and divergent series, including asymptotic series.

These functions are declared in the header file gsl_sum.h.
