Probability Value Library

Peter N. Yianilos and Eric Sven Ristad

Description: The pr_t package provides an abstraction for probability values. The principal benefit of using this abstraction is to avoid underflow in time series modeling. This package provides a direct and elegant solution to this problem. All work necessary to support a sufficiently large exponent range is swept into the routines associated with the pr_t data type.


Note that this software was absorbed into Library of Practical Abstractions . This software has been only slightly modified since its initial release.
