To solve these problems, interest in hardware design of decimal arithmetic
Constant addition with flagged prefix adders can be applied to wide variety of computer arithmetic implementations including floating point operations, decimal arithmetic
and image processing.
The topics include number systems and number representations, data transfer instructions, fixed-point arithmetic instructions, binary-coded decimal arithmetic
instructions, procedures, arrays, and interrupts and input/output operations.
- The Fujitsu-developed SPARC64 X CPU delivers some of the fastest integer arithmetic performance in the world(2), using Software on Chip to execute certain software processes, including decimal arithmetic
, encryption, and copying.
Papers from a June 2009 symposium are presented here, in sections on algorithms and number systems, arithmetic hardware, finite fields and cryptography, mathematical software, decimal hardware, floating-point techniques, decimal transcendents, automated synthesis of arithmetic operations, decimal arithmetic
in industry, and interval arithmetic.
