Details

For brobs: apart from abs(), log(), exp(), sinh() and cosh(), these functions return f(as.numeric(x)) so are numeric; the exceptional functions return brobs.

For glubs: mostly direct transliteration of the appropriate formula; one might note that log(z) is defined as glub(log(Mod(x)),Arg(x)).
