<dt><a name="index-gsl_005froot_005ffsolver_005falloc"></a>Function: <em>gsl_root_fsolver *</em> <strong>gsl_root_fsolver_alloc</strong> <em>(const gsl_root_fsolver_type * <var>T</var>)</em></dt>
<dd><a name="index-gsl_005froot_005ffsolver"></a>
<a name="index-gsl_005froot_005ffsolver_005ftype"></a>
<p>This function returns a pointer to a newly allocated instance of a
solver of type <var>T</var>.  For example, the following code creates an
instance of a bisection solver,
</p>
<div class="example">
<pre class="example">const gsl_root_fsolver_type * T 
  = gsl_root_fsolver_bisection;
gsl_root_fsolver * s 
  = gsl_root_fsolver_alloc (T);
</pre></div>

<p>If there is insufficient memory to create the solver then the function
returns a null pointer and the error handler is invoked with an error
code of <code>GSL_ENOMEM</code>.
</p></dd></dl>

<dd><a name="index-gsl_005froot_005ffdfsolver"></a>
<a name="index-gsl_005froot_005ffdfsolver_005ftype"></a>
<p>This function returns a pointer to a newly allocated instance of a
derivative-based solver of type <var>T</var>.  For example, the following
code creates an instance of a Newton-Raphson solver,
</p>
<div class="example">
<pre class="example">const gsl_root_fdfsolver_type * T 
  = gsl_root_fdfsolver_newton;
gsl_root_fdfsolver * s 
  = gsl_root_fdfsolver_alloc (T);
</pre></div>

<p>If there is insufficient memory to create the solver then the function
returns a null pointer and the error handler is invoked with an error
code of <code>GSL_ENOMEM</code>.

<dd><p>This function initializes, or reinitializes, an existing solver <var>s</var>

[<var>x_lower</var>, <var>x_upper</var>].

<dd><p>This function initializes, or reinitializes, an existing solver <var>s</var>

<var>root</var>.

<dd><p>These functions return a pointer to the name of the solver.  For example,
</p>
<div class="example">
<pre class="example">printf (&quot;s is a '%s' solver\n&quot;,
        gsl_root_fsolver_name (s));
</pre></div>

<p>would print something like <code>s is a 'bisection' solver</code>.
