Name        : arprec
Product     : Fedora 20
Version     : 2.2.16
Release     : 5.fc20

Summary     : Software package for performing arbitrary precision arithmetic
Description :
ARPREC is a software package for performing arbitrary precision
arithmetic.  It consists of a revision and extension of Bailey's
earlier MPFUN package, enhanced with special IEEE numerical
techniques.  Features include:

  * Written in C++ for broad portability and fast execution.

  * Includes C++ and Fortran 90/95 interfaces based on custom data-types
    and operator/function overloading, which permit the library to be
    used with only minor modifications for many conventional C++ and
    Fortran-90 programs.

  * Includes all of the usual arithmetic operations, as well as many
    transcendental functions, including cos, sin, tan, arccos, arcsin,
    arctan, exp, log, log10, erf, gamma and Bessel functions.

  * Supports three arbitrary precision data-types: mp_real, mp_int
    and mp_complex.

  * Supports many mixed-mode operations between arbitrary precision
    variables or constants and conventional variables or constants.

  * Includes special library routines, incorporating advanced
    algorithms for extra-high precision (above 1000 digits) computation.

  * Includes a number of sample application programs, including programs
    for quadrature (numerical definite integrals), PLSQ (integer relation
    finding) and polynomial root finding.

  * Includes the "Experimental Mathematician's Toolkit".  This is a
    self-contained interactive program that performs many operations
    typical of modern experimental mathematics, including arithmetic
    expressions, common transcendental functions, infinite series
    evaluation, definite integrals, polynomial roots, user-defined
    functions, all evaluated to a user-defined level of numeric
    precision, up to 1000 decimal digits.
