This is the new edition of the classic book Computer Arithmetic in three volumes published originally in 1990 by IEEE Computer Society Press. As in the original, the book contains many classic papers treating advanced concepts in computer arithmetic, which is very suitable as stand-alone textbooks or complementary materials to textbooks on computer arithmetic for graduate students and research professionals interested in the field.
Told in the words of the initial developers, this book conveys the excitement of the creators, and the implementations provide insight into the details necessary to realize real chips. This second volume presents topics on error tolerant arithmetic, digit on-line arithmetic, number systems, and now in this new edition, a topic on implementations of arithmetic operations, all wrapped with an updated overview and a new introduction for each chapter.
Readership: Graduate students and research professionals interested in computer arithmetic.
