- libmpfi-dev: multiple precision floating-point interval computation library -- libdev
This package provides a C library of functions for interval arithmetic

computations with arbitrary precision.

.

The basic principle of interval arithmetic consists in enclosing every number

by an interval containing it and being representable by machine numbers: for

instance it can be stored as its lower and upper endpoints and these bounds

are machine numbers, or as a centre and a radius which are machine numbers.

.

The arithmetic operations are extended for interval operands in such a way

that the exact result of the operation belongs to the computed interval.

.

The purpose of an arbitrary precision interval arithmetic is on the one hand

to get guaranteed results, thanks to interval computation, and on the other

hand to obtain accurate results, thanks to multiple precision arithmetic. The

MPFI library is built upon MPFR in order to benefit from the correct roundings

provided by MPFR. Further advantages of using MPFR are its portability and

compliance with the IEEE 754 standard for floating-point arithmetic.

.

This package provides the static library and symbolic links needed for

development.
