Description
The two units (FastMath and SuperFastMath) implement fast but reduced accuracy replacements for exponentiation and logrithms. These routines are mostly likely to be useful in situations where the "shape" of the function is not critical only its general behavior such as in neural networks and many types of simulators. The FastMath routines are approximately 4 times faster than their standard counterparts and have an accuracy of about 3 digits. The SuperFastMath routines are about 7 times faster and have an accuracy of about 2 digits with the exception of Ln(x) which really stinks as x->1. Additionally, the properties of the routines in FastMath are somewhat better around "special" values such as exp(0) and ln(1).
