Fast algorithms for high-precision computation of
elementary functions (invited talk), Seventh Conference on Real Numbers and
Computers ( RNC7),

In many applications of real-number computation we need to evaluate
elementary functions such as exp(x), ln(x), arctan(x) to high precision.
We survey some of the well-known (and not so well-known) techniques as well
as mentioning some new ideas.
