Overview: Intel Math Library

The Intel® C++ Compiler includes a mathematical software library containing highly optimized and very accurate mathematical functions. These functions are commonly used in scientific or graphic applications, as well as other programs that rely heavily on floating-point computations. Support for C99 _Complex data types is included by using the -c99 compiler option. The mathimf.h header file includes prototypes for the library functions. See Using the Intel Math Library. For a complete list of the functions available, refer to the Function List in this section.

Math Libraries for IA-32 and Itanium®-based Systems

The math library linked to an application depends on the compilation or linkage options specified.
