GiNaC does not provide such functionality. Have a look at
- GNU octave (http://www.gnu.org/software/octave)
- GNU scientific library (http://www.gnu.org/software/gsl)
- PETCs library (http://www-unix.mcs.anl.gov/petsc/petsc-as)

I'm just curious: why one would want to use bignums for solving ODEs (PDEs)
numerically? I doubt Runge-Kutta (FEM) will ever give result with 53-bit
accuracy, so storing even more mantissa bits is kind of pointless, isn't it?
All science is either physics or stamp collecting.
