Bug#453024: ITP: mpmath -- library for arbitrary-precision floating-point arithmetic

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Sandro Tosi <matrixhasu@gmail.com>

* Package name    : mpmath
  Version         : 0.5
  Upstream Author : Fredrik Johansson <fredrik.johansson@gmail.com>
* URL             : http://mpmath.googlecode.com
* License         : BSD
  Programming Lang: Python
  Description     : library for arbitrary-precision floating-point arithmetic

(might be changed in the real package)

 mpmath is a pure-Python library for arbitrary-precision floating-point arithmetic. Its features include:
   * Runs  without compilation  on any  computer where  Python  2.4 or
     later is installed
   * Fair  performance  --  typically  10-100x  faster  than  Python's
     decimal library
   * Transcendental functions -- all  functions from Python's math and
     cmath modules, plus a few more like gamma, factorial, erf
   * Complex numbers -- with support for transcendental functions
   * Directed  rounding  --   floor,  ceiling,  down,  up,  half-down,
     half-up, half-even
   * Unlimited exponents -- no overflow or underflow
