Author:D. Lozier; Applied and Computational Math Division, NIST
Description: This area of numerical computation has the property that input to its software is of small dimension, so high-accuracy reference software that produces test data with guaranteed error bounds is feasible. Library developers need illustrations of anomalous behavior to improve robustness of research algorithms, and library users need a simple mechanism they can use to tailor tests to their own specific applications. To address these issues the authors are experimenting with the development of a Web-based interactive software testing service for special functions. Principal Results and Services: The Mathematical Function Evaluator; Numerical Evaluation of Special Functions. Also references and technical presentations. A project component of of NIST's Tools for Evaluating Mathematical and Statistical Software.
