I would certainly like to consider alternatives for elementary functions.
Is there some published text describing Kahan's definitions, preferably
along with a rationale?  (One very important advantage of Penfield's
proposal is that the reasons for the choices are, right or wrong, clearly

Could you send me on-line a brief description of the differences, for
quick immediate evaluation?
