LCC-WIN32 is a compiler system for

It is free for non-commercial use, but please check for copyright and licence there - it also gives the latest official version.

It has a datatype 'qfloat' of 56 bytes allowing numerics with 104 digits and an 'epsilon' of ~ 0.109e-105 with epsilon + 1 <> 1.

For
using the examples below only the file
qfloat.dll
from the above link is needed: it just has to be copied into the Windows

system directory. It is part of the full download,
but
for convenience here is a copy as single file as well: qfloat.dll.zip
(57 kB).

cdfN123_LCC.mws.pdf
(67 kB)

Cumulative standard normal
distribution
up to dimension 3 with 104 decimal places using qfloat.

For dim <= 2 it is
reasonable fast
(~ 10 msec), for dim = 3 computations may need 5 - 10 seconds.

The files
(65 kB) contain the C sources and sheets to interface that to Maple and
Excel.

Some test examples with small
determinant
are in cdfN3_LCC.mws.pdf (Maple sheet:
cdfN3_LCC.mws).

cdfN_LCC.mws.pdf
(37 kB)

An implementation of the
cumulative
normal distribution giving 104 digits of exactness with interface to

Maple and Excel. Here are the files
(74 kB), containing sheets (Maple, Excel), DLL and C sources.

Of course the full taste of
exactness
only can come up for small negative x, where cdfN(x) approaches 0,

since cdfN(x) for large x
becomes
too close to 1, so exactness there is limited by 'epsilon' of the
system.
