Abstract : The proposed standard for the Generic Package of Elementary Functions (GPEF) represent the work of a large number of people in both the United States and Europe who have collaborated to develop specifications for packages of Ada mathematical functions. This development has been difficult and lengthy The exceptional dedication and perseverance of these people have resulted in the completed specifications for two packages-GPEF; and the Generic Package of Primitive Functions for Ada (GPPF). GPEF is the specification for certain elementary mathematical functions. They are square root, logarithm and exponential functions and the exponentiation operator; the trigonometric functions for sine, cosine, tangent and cotangent and their inverses; and the hyperbolic functions for sine, cosine, tangent, and cotangent together with their inverses.
