#3408: gamma distribution's quantile performance
 Reporter: chhenning@… | Owner: johnmaddock
     Type: Tasks | Status: assigned
Milestone: Boost 1.41.0 | Component: math
  Version: Boost 1.40.0 | Severity: Optimization
 Keywords: |

Comment(by johnmaddock):

>1. Are the underlying algorithms for the two functions the same?

 Yes. However, there may be detail differences that make one version or
 the other slightly faster.

>2. Is it possible to change the internal function variables to static

 No, that wouldn't be thread safe (obviously constants are already static).

>3. How about using forceinline on Windows? Dunno what it's on Linux.

 Maybe, that's sort of a last resort, there are still plenty of other
 things to work on first!
