Floating-point arithmetic is the most widely used way of implementing real-number arithmetic on modern computers. However, making such an arithmetic reliable and portable, yet fast, is a very difficult task. As a result, floating-point arithmetic is far from being exploited to its full potential. This handbook aims to provide a complete overview of modern floating-point arithmetic. So that the techniques presented can be put directly into practice in actual coding or design, they are illustrated, whenever possible, by a corresponding program.

Produktbeschreibung
Floating-point arithmetic is the most widely used way of implementing real-number arithmetic on modern computers. However, making such an arithmetic reliable and portable, yet fast, is a very difficult task. As a result, floating-point arithmetic is far from being exploited to its full potential. This handbook aims to provide a complete overview of modern floating-point arithmetic. So that the techniques presented can be put directly into practice in actual coding or design, they are illustrated, whenever possible, by a corresponding program. The handbook is designed for programmers of numerical applications, compiler designers, programmers of floating-point algorithms, designers of arithmetic operators, and more generally, students and researchers in numerical analysis who wish to better understand a tool used in their daily work and research.

Rezensionen
"The new edition of this book updates chapters to reflect recent changes to programming languages and compilers and the new prevalence of Graphic Processing Units in recent years. ... In the Appendix, the reader will find an introduction to relevant number theory tools ... . This book is designed for programmers of numerical applications ... and more generally students and researchers in numerical analysis who wish to more accurately understand a tool that they manipulate on an everyday basis." (T. C. Mohan, zbMATH 1394.65001, 2018)
