I wonder how much leveraging SQLite can help. SQLite has only basic math
functions, and you cannot use stored functions, but you CAN map functions to a
C API. And if you can do THAT, then someone has written a math API, and maybe
that is a good place to start looking.
The problem isn't with the math libraries. There's nothing wrong with
the way the engine deals with math at that level, and I wouldn't expect
SQLite to use anything other than the standard math libraries.
The problem I've run into is more at a higher level, dealing with number
parsing and runtime overflow detection before truncating input
parameters down to unsigned integers and calling the math library.
