The packages described here are designed to perform efficient high-accuracy calculations in cases where there can be serious loss of significance due to rounding errors. Numbers are represented by a value part with a variable number of digits in the mantissa and an error estimate which is updated throughout the calculation and which gives a range of… CONTINUE READING
