Is it possible to force Mathematica to perform computations with hardware supported quadruple-precision? The following test suggest, that all of the computations with fixed precision, different than <...
Graphics only supports machine precision numbers (i.e. number that can be converted to machine precision). Take for example ...
If I compute, say, 1/3//N, Mathematica displays 0.333333 as the result. When I copy that output to use elsewhere, the paste ...
