Description (last modified by )
In #1173 an mpmath numerical evaluator for erf
was written by Douglas McNeil. This ticket proposes to save that code, incorporate it with the ability to pass an algorithm
parameter to numerical_approx
from #12289. We could support Pari, mpmath, and Maxima.
It would even be useful to see where Pari is faster.

This looks like a duplicate of #1173 to me.

- Summary changed from change default numerical evaluation of `erf` to use mpmath to allow different algorithms for evaluating erf
I think that we can repurpose this ticket to adding the algorithm keyword here. Some good examples from #1173 (most were added in #13001):
Verify we're returning the appropriate zero:: sage: erf(0) 0 sage: erf(0.0) 0.000000000000000 sage: erf(RealField(100)(0)) 0.00000000000000000000000000000
set(erf(45*10**i).n() for i in range(10))
sage: CC(erf(ComplexField(1000)(2+3j)))
