The headerfiles ha_rmath.hpp and ha_imath.hpp are additional headerfiles
for the C-XSC 2.0 - Library (http://www.math.uni-wuppertal.de/~xsc) and
they are an interface for mathematical standard functions (elementary
functions) of high accuracy.
When do you need these additional headerfiles?
==============================================
1. You need the elementary functions available in C-XSC for real and
interval arguments,
sqr, sqrt,
sin, cos, tan, cot,
asin, acos, atan, acot,
exp, ln,
sinh, cosh, tanh, coth,
asinh, acos, atanh, acoth,
pow, power
with higher accuracy. The computed values of the functions declared
in the additional headerfiles are accurate to within one or two
units in the last place. The emphasis is more on accuracy than
on speed.
Hint: If you want to evaluate your functions fast, use the elementary
functions of the C-XSC library (headerfile: rmath.hpp or imath.hpp,
namespace: cxsc). If you need higher accuracy and you accept that the
computation is more expensive, use the additional headerfiles (header-
file: ha_rmath.hpp or ha_imath.hpp, namespace: ha_cxsc).
2. You need functions with a larger argument range, e.g.
real x; sin(x); with |x|>1e9 or
interval x,y; pow(x,y); with Inf(x)<0
3. You need one of the additional functions
atan2(x,y) = arctan(x/y) for real arguments,
exp2, exp10, log2, log10, loga for real and interval arguments,
then you must use these additonal headerfiles.
How to use the headerfiles?
===========================
As usual, you include the addional headerfiles in your own program with
#include "ha_rmath.hpp" or
#include "ha_imath.hpp".
The additional functions are in the namespace ha_cxsc, that means you
must use the scope operator to call such a function (e.g. for the
sine function ha_cxsc::sin(x) ).
Hint: To avoid ambiguity of overloaded function names do not use
"using namespace ha_cxsc;" and "using namespace cxsc;" simultaneously.
Afterwards you can compile your program and link the C-XSC library as
usual.
