Hello, I thought the gsl_matrix_complex part may need a bit more explanation without being described separately for each functions. At first I thought the gsl_matrix_complex_set function was used in a way we could enter directly the complex value instead of using the gsl_vector functions. Something like gsl_matrix_complex_set(gsl_matrix * m, size_t i, size_t j, double x, double y) where x and y are the cartesian components of the complex number x + i y. But I see it would mean you would have to create 3 functions for the same usage : one for rect, one for polar and one to enter directly an already existing gsl_vector. So finally I don't think you should change anything. It was simply me who was wrong. If you wish to add more documentation on that go ahead but I think that if I had read a bit more I would have got it. Thanks for the fast reply!
