Annex G (normative)

Numerics
Chapter
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 2219)

Abstract

The Numerics Annex specifies
  • features for complex arithmetic, including complex I/O;

  • a mode (“strict mode”), in which the predefined arithmetic operations of floating point and fixed point types and the functions and operations of various predefined packages have to provide guaranteed accuracy or conform to other numeric performance requirements, which the Numerics Annex also specifies;

  • a mode (“relaxed mode”), in which no accuracy or other numeric performance requirements need be satisfied, as for implementations not conforming to the Numerics Annex;

  • models of floating point and fixed point arithmetic on which the accuracy requirements of strict mode are based; and

  • the definitions of the model-oriented attributes of floating point types that apply in the strict mode.
