I graduated from Carleton College and studied math and computer science, and now work for JuliaComputing on analog circuit simulation. I also make math go vroom.
exp10 get 2x faster in Julia 1.6? One reason is, unlike most other languages, Julia doesn't use the operating system-provided implementations for math (Libm). This talk will be an overview of improvements in Julia's math library since version 1.5, and areas for future improvements. We will cover will be computing optimal polynomials, table based implementations, and bit-hacking for peak performance.
