The GNU Scientific Library (GSL) has routines that do matrix
operations, Fourier transforms (which you mention), numerical
linear algebra, and that aid with some kinds of plotting (which
are mentioned in the GNU SSL README).  I didn't look to see that
specific features supported by GNU SSL are also supported by GSL.

GSL is actively maintained.  It is in active use by other
projects.  I can't speak for GNU SSL.

GNU SSL has C and C++ interfaces.  GSL has only a C interface (as
far as I know).
