Big.js is a JavaScript library for arbitrary-precision arithmetic, allowing precise handling of large numbers without losing accuracy due to JavaScript's limitations with floating-point arithmetic. It provides methods for performing arithmetic operations like addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division on numbers with arbitrary precision. Big.js is particularly useful for financial calculations, cryptography, and any scenario where precision is crucial.

Compared to native JavaScript arithmetic, Big.js ensures accurate results for calculations involving large numbers by avoiding rounding errors. It is actively maintained and offers a reliable solution for developers needing precise arithmetic operations in their applications.
