Hi all,
just a few questions regarding the underlying implementation of the IC 

1 Does its implementation respects IEEE-754 (the standard for 
floating point processing) ? Both in terms of representation of a 
floating point number and during the propagation of the bounds (also 
which type of rounding is used?) Or how close is it to it? The standard 
documentaion is a bit vague on these finer points. Where can we get 
more details?

2 If IC uses double binary floating-point numbers by default, can we 
switch to a single floating-point number representation?

Once again,
thanking you.
