Manuscript Title: lsjk - a C++ library for arbitrary-precision numeric evaluation of the generalized log-sine functions
Authors: M.Yu. Kalmykov, A. Sheplyakov
Program title: lsjk
Catalogue identifier: ADVS_v1_0
Distribution format: tar.gz
Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 172(2005)45
Programming language: C++.
Computer: all.
Operating system: POSIX.
RAM: Depending on the complexity of the problem, at least 32Mb RAM recommended.
Keywords: Generalized log-sine functions, Feynman integrals, Polylogarithms.
PACS: 02.30.Gp, 11.10.Gh.
Classification: 4.4, 4.7.

External routines: The CLN library for arbitrary-precision arithmetics is required at version 1.1.5 or greater.

Nature of problem:
Numerical evaluation of the generalized log-sine functions for real argument in the region 0 < θ < π. These functions appear in Feynman integrals.

Solution method:
Series representation for the real argument in the region 0 < θ < π.

Restrictions:
Limited up to Lsj(9)(θ), and j is an arbitrary integer number. Thus, all function up to the weight 12 in the region 0 < θ < π can be evaluated. The algorithm can be extended up to higher values of k (k > 9) without modification.

Running time:
Depending on the complexity of problem. See Table 1 in section 3.4.
