Developing Accurate and Portable Elementary Functions for Scilab

by Shashank Sahni for Scilab

Scilab is numerical computational package which is widely used for high precision scientific computing. Currently, the elementary functions in scilab use the ones provided by maths library of native compilers - Visual C on windows and gcc on linux. This project aims to provide a common math library on all platforms, at least for high precision requiring functions - sin, cos, pow etc., to ensure results with acceptable variations(if not exactly same) across different platforms.
