Turning to mathematics, Christine Proust considers a collection of mathematical tablets from the ‘House of the āšipus’ with particular reference to their engagement with metrology. By the Achaemenid period many of the metrological units and systems of the Old Babylonian period were no longer in use. SLATEC is a FORTRAN90 library which contains a large amount of numerical software. The orignal, correct version of SLATEC is as a FORTRAN77 library. AAAAAA is the SLATEC Common Mathematical Library disclaimer and version. ACOSH computes the arc hyperbolic cosine.
