# Category:Arbitrary precision

**Arbitrary-precision arithmetic** is a type of calculation that is involves numbers with the number of digits of precision are limited only by the available memory of the system (as opposed to fixed-precision arithmetic, where precision is determined by a fixed number of storage bits used for numbers). Arbitrary-precision arithmetic is sometimes called **bignum arithmetic** and is provided natively by some languages (Such as Lisp, Haskell, and Rexx) and through libraries such as GMP in others.
