complex number function errors (all platforms)
Several mathematical functions (e.g. sqrt) give incorrect values for some complex numbers.
Steps to reproduce
Evaluate the following in GHCi:
> :m +Data.Complex > sqrt $ (-4) :+ (-0) 0.0 :+ 2.0
> sqrt $ (-4) :+ (-0) 0.0 :+ (-2.0)
- GHC version used: 8.10.7
- Operating System: Windows and Linux
- System Architecture:
The above is one example but there are several more errors. I've coded some fixes here, though these are work in progress.
The github repo also includes some tests (and I'm trying to develop more and may uncover additional issues). I'd like to include a fuller set of tests in GHC.
(I've also just raised #20424 for related issues on real numbers in Windows. Some of the fixes for complex numbers depend on these working correctly).
