Floating-point arithmetic in the Coq system


The process of proving some mathematical theorems can be greatly reduced by relying on numerically-intensive computations with a certified arithmetic. This article presents a formalization of floating-point arithmetic that makes it possible to efficiently compute inside the proofs of the Coq system. This certified library is a multi-radix and multi-precision implementation free from underflow and overflow. It provides the basic arithmetic operators and a few elementary functions.
