The Mathematical-Function Computation Handbook: Programming Using the MathCW Portable Software Library By Prof. Nelson H.F. Beebe
English | PDF | 2017 | 1145 Pages | ISBN : 3319641093 | 29.7 MB
This highly comprehensive handbook provides a substantial advance in the computation of elementary and special functions of mathematics, extending the function coverage of major programming languages well beyond their international standards, including full support for decimal floating-point arithmetic. Written with clarity and focusing on the C language, the work pays extensive attention to little-understood aspects of floating-point and integer arithmetic, and to software portability, as well as to important historical architectures. It extends support to a future 256-bit, floating-point format offering 70 decimal digits of precision.
