Math¶
Usage
use Math;
or
import Math;
This module provides frequently used mathematical constants and functions.
It includes wrappers for many of the constants and functions in the C Math library, which is part of the C Language Standard (ISO/IEC 9899) as described in Section 7.12. Please consult that standard for an authoritative description of the expected properties of those constants and routines.
In general, where the C math library provides a double and a float version of a function, the float version has a suffix ‘f’. In the Chapel interface, the suffix is dropped, and the type of the operand determines which version is called – according to the usual function overloading and resolution rules. Normally, the result has the same precision as the argument(s). Please consult the C standard for specifics.
Error Handling – At present, Chapel does not provide control over error
handling in the Math module. The default behavior is as if the macro
math_errhandling
is set to 0: Given erroneous input at run-time,
all math functions will return an implementation-defined value; no
exception will be generated.

- proc fma(x: real(64), y: real(64), z: real(64)) : real(64)¶
Warning
The ‘fma()’ procedure was recently added, and may change based on feedback
Performs a fused multiply-add operation that multiplies
x
andy
and addsz
to the result. The advantage offma()
over the expression(x*y)+z
is that it avoids the additional error introduced by performing two separate floating point operations. It can also be faster on machines that implement the operation as a single instruction.Note
When compiling with
CHPL_TARGET_COMPILER=llvm
, this procedure should reliably generate a single hardware instruction onx86
if--specialize
is thrown andCHPL_TARGET_CPU
is set (provided that thex86
CPU supports hardware FMA).When compiling with C, this procedure will call out to the
fma()
routines defined in the C header math.h. Any optimization performed is decided by the C compiler.
