mpc: Arithmetic of complex numbers with arbitrarily high precision and correct rounding¶
From http://www.multiprecision.org/mpc: GNU MPC is a C library for the arithmetic of complex numbers with arbitrarily high precision and correct rounding of the result. It extends the principles of the IEEE-754 standard for fixed precision real floating point numbers to complex numbers, providing well-defined semantics for every operation. At the same time, speed of operation at high precision is a major design goal.
LGPLv3+ for the code and GFDLv1.3+ (with no invariant sections) for the documentation.
The MPC website is located at http://www.multiprecision.org/mpc .
The MPC team can be contacted via the MPC mailing list:
Special Update/Build Instructions¶
mpc_mul_faster.patch: Patch from Paul Zimmermann to speed up MPC multiplication (for small precisions) by reducing overhead in MPFR operations.
