ISO Standards on Ada Numerics

ISO/IEC 11430:1994(E), Information technology -- Programming languages -- Generic package of elementary functions for Ada, was published on 1 Dec. 1994.

ISO/IEC 11729:1994(E), Information technology -- Programming languages -- Generic package of primitive functions for Ada, was published on 22 Dec. 1994.

These two international standards, as well as two additional draft international standards related to complex arithmetic, are applicable to Ada 83. The two DISs are still being edited. Comparable facilities exist in Ada 95.
