 The library package Numerics.Real_Arrays is declared pure and defines the same types and subprograms as Numerics.Generic_Real_Arrays, except that the predefined type Float is systematically substituted for Real'Base throughout. Nongeneric equivalents for each of the other predefined floating point types are defined similarly, with the names Numerics.Short_Real_Arrays, Numerics.Long_Real_Arrays, etc. 
32/2
 Two types are defined and exported by Numerics.Generic_Real_Arrays. The composite type Real_Vector is provided to represent a vector with components of type Real; it is defined as an unconstrained, one-dimensional array with an index of type Integer. The composite type Real_Matrix is provided to represent a matrix with components of type Real; it is defined as an unconstrained, two-dimensional array with indices of type Integer.
33/2
 The effect of the various subprograms is as described below. In most cases the subprograms are described in terms of corresponding scalar operations of the type Real; any exception raised by those operations is propagated by the array operation. Moreover, the accuracy of the result for each individual component is as defined for the scalar operation unless stated otherwise.
34/2
 In the case of those operations which are defined to involve an inner product, Constraint_Error may be raised if an intermediate result is outside the range of Real'Base even though the mathematical final result would not be.

The eigenvectors are normalized and mutually orthogonal (they are orthonormal), including when there are repeated eigenvalues. Constraint_Error is raised if A'Length(1) is not equal to A'Length(2).

Implementation Requirements

81/2
 Accuracy requirements for the subprograms Solve, Inverse, Determinant, Eigenvalues and Eigensystem are implementation defined. 
82/2
 For operations not involving an inner product, the accuracy requirements are those of the corresponding operations of the type Real in both the strict mode and the relaxed mode (see G.2).
83/2
 For operations involving an inner product, no requirements are specified in the relaxed mode. In the strict mode the modulus of the absolute error of the inner product X*Y shall not exceed g*abs(X)*abs(Y) where g is defined as 
84/2
g = X'Length * Real'Machine_Radix**(1 – Real'Model_Mantissa)
85/2
 For the L2-norm, no accuracy requirements are specified in the relaxed mode. In the strict mode the relative error on the norm shall not exceed g / 2.0 + 3.0 * Real'Model_Epsilon where g is defined as above.

Documentation Requirements

86/2
 Implementations shall document any techniques used to reduce cancellation errors such as extended precision arithmetic.

Implementation Permissions

87/2
 The nongeneric equivalent packages may, but need not, be actual instantiations of the generic package for the appropriate predefined type.

Implementation Advice

88/2
 Implementations should implement the Solve and Inverse functions using established techniques such as LU decomposition with row interchanges followed by back and forward substitution. Implementations are recommended to refine the result by performing an iteration on the residuals; if this is done then it should be documented. 
89/2
 It is not the intention that any special provision should be made to determine whether a matrix is ill-conditioned or not. The naturally occurring overflow (including division by zero) which will result from executing these functions with an ill-conditioned matrix and thus raise Constraint_Error is sufficient. 
90/2
 The test that a matrix is symmetric should be performed by using the equality operator to compare the relevant components.
