Reduced Precision Emulator

This software provides a Fortran library for emulating the effect of low-precision real numbers. It is intended to be used as an experimental tool to understand the effect of reduced precision within numerical simulations.


An article describing the emulator is published in Geoscientific Model Development and can be cited as:

The software itself has a doi for all released versions from v5.0.0, produced automatically using Zenodo. The record for the most recent release is here.
