BigNumber.js is a JavaScript library that provides arbitrary-precision arithmetic for working with large numbers. It allows you to perform mathematical operations on numbers with precision beyond the limitations of native JavaScript number types. BigNumber.js supports a wide range of mathematical functions and operations, including addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, exponentiation, and more.

Compared to native JavaScript number handling, BigNumber.js offers precise and accurate calculations, especially when dealing with very large or very small numbers. It helps avoid common issues like rounding errors and loss of precision. BigNumber.js is actively maintained and widely used in projects that require precise numerical computations.
