It is known since more than 15 years that exp looses up to 13 bits for extended arguments; even the newer Delphi versions (confirmed up to D14, some are corrected in D17) have horrible bugs: e.g. arccsch(2) = 0.27980789397 (correct = 0.48121182506); coth(12000)=1 crashes; sech(12000)=0 crashes; sinh(x)/x=0 for small x; sin(1e22)=1e22 (correct = -0.852200849767); StdDev(a,a+1,a+2) crashes e.g. for a=100000000000; etc..
AMath's elementary mathematical functions include: exponential, logarithmic,
trigonometric, hyperbolic, inverse circular / hyperbolic functions.
There are polynomial, vector, statistic operations as well as
floating point and FPU control functions. Delphi's nonsense routines
(IfThen, IsZero, InRange ...) and its financial functions are not
(and will not be) implemented. Here is the complete list of
AMath functions with short descriptions.
All standard one argument elementary transcendental functions have peak relative errors less than
2.2e-19, values for power(x,y) are 2.1e-19 (for |x|,|y| < 1000) and 3.4e-19
(for |x|,|y| < 2000). The precision is tested with the t_amathx
program using MPArith functions.
The ext2 (double-extended) routines operate on pairs of extended floating
point numbers, which represent the unevaluated sum of the high and low parts:
a = (a.h, a.l) = a.h + a.l, normally with |a.l| ≤ eps_x*|a.h|.
