# 5 Complex Functions

The complex functions expect arguments of type `mpc_t`

.

The MPC floating-point functions have an interface that is similar to the
GNU MP
integer functions. The function prefix for operations on complex numbers is
`mpc_`

.

The precision of a computation is defined as follows: Compute the requested operation exactly (with “infinite precision”), and round the result to the destination variable precision with the given rounding mode.

The MPC complex functions are intended to be a smooth extension of the IEEE P754 arithmetic. The results obtained on one computer should not differ from the results obtained on a computer with a different word size.
