The Flocq library for the Coq proof assistant is a comprehensive formalization of floating-point arithmetic: core definitions, axiomatic and computational rounding operations, high-level properties [5] . It provides a framework for developers to formally certify numerical applications.

It is distributed as open source, under a LGPL license, at http://flocq.gforge.inria.fr/ . It was first released in 2010.
