### Introduction

Both Regina and ooRexx are supplied with a mathematical library, a DLL based on the C-library. This supports some basic math functions and a few constants, up to 16 digits precision. For many tasks on RosettaCode it's not sufficient.

This year I started posting on RosettaCode and found the copy-and-paste WoW to get a runnable program annoying. Therefore I'll gather all procedures I have until now and present them here in 7 libraries. Other REXX entries will link to this page.

Many sources were helpful while creating these libraries. Credits go to:

• Math functions in REXX: John Brock, Patrick McPhee
• Code snippets RosettaCode: Gerard Schildberger, Walter Pachl
• Wikipedia International
• Wolfram Mathworld
• Geeks for Geeks
• Online Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences
• ChatGPT
• Numerical methods at work: Henrik Vestermark
• Numerical recipes: Press et al
• Various other books and internet math sources and online calculators
• And my own research and try-outs

### General remarks

For now, all procedures work only with real arguments and deliver real results. No complex arithmetic is supported yet.
REXX can work with arbitrary precision, thus also these procedures, using your current numeric digits setting. However, basic functions such as square root, pi or tangent start having problems at 1000 digits, and the more complex functions as gamma or zeta struggle already with 100 digits.
Basis parameter checks are present. In case of error, a procedure just returns 'X' (= forbidden) and your program will fail elsewhere. No fancy error trapping is present.
All routines are coded with the 'procedure' clause, meaning all variables within are local. They communicate via the parameters. However, sometimes it's handy or needed to use global variables (store multiple results, memorization). For this the stem 'glob.' is used, and every procedure has 'expose glob.' coded to make it available.
As you might guess, there are many cross references between the libraries.

### Usage

Use the low profile pre processor (include pieces of code in a REXX program): Low profile REXX pre processor
or
Copy and paste (parts) of the libraries in your program

Mind the cross refs: if you copy Numbers, big chance you'll also need Functions and Constants.

### Constants

A whole bunch of mathematical constants: Pi, E, Euler-Mascheroni and a lot more. Up to 100 digits, these constants are predefined and thus given directly.

### Numbers

These are procedures belonging to the field 'number theory': all kinds of numbers, permutations, combinations, factors, divisors and more. Many of these procedures come in pairs: i.e. Prime(number) checks if number is prime and Primes(threshold) gives the number of primes <= threshold and stores all these primes in glob. Most procedures expect a number as parameter, some two numbers like Gcd or Comb. Many of these procedures become quite slow as the numbers grow. The full list:

Two procedures, used elsewhere, deal with the first derivative or value of a polynomial. They both have a string with coefficients as parameter, highest power first, zero entries included:2x^3+x+3 = '2 0 1 3'. Pdiff returns as string in this format, which than may be evaluated using Peval. The list:

• Pdiff: Polynomial differentiation function

### Rational

One of the tasks on RosettaCode is 'rational arithmetic'. The most important procedures from this field are included here. Besides the second parameter of Rpower, all arguments in and out have the form 'numerator/denominator'. The list:

For equations of the second to fourth degree solutions in closed form (formulas) are possible. Procedures for these equations are present here. The input follows the convention as described in Polynomial: so solving x^2-3x+2=0 is represented by parameter '1 -3 2'. The list:

• Cbeq: Cubic roots of ax^3+bx^2+cx+d = 0
• Qteq: Quartic roots of ax^4+bx^3+cx^2+dx+e = 0
