icm logoArithmetic with Floating-Point Numbers

Wecome to the Institute for Computational Mathematics (ICM) of the Department of Mathematical Sciences and Department of Computer Science, Kent State University. Enjoy our demo of symbolic mathematical computation capabilities, created and maintained by Paul S. Wang 王 士 弘. Your feedback will be most appreciated.

Floating-point computations are important in scientific and engineering applications. Here you can compute with regular floating point numbers, with a precision of 16 decimal digits. Also you can compute with increased precision using bigfloat numbers whose precision can be set by the user.

Here you can try arithmetic with floating-point numbers. For example: float(2.5 + %pi) or bfloat(%pi)

Try it yourself.


Compute: with precision
