Ideal for graduate and senior undergraduate level courses in computer arithmetic and advanced digital design, Computer Arithmetic: Algorithms and Hardware Designs provides a balanced, comprehensive treatment of computer arithmetic, covering topics in arithmetic unit design and circuit implementation that complement the architectural and algorithmic speedup techniques used in high-performance computer architecture and parallel processing. Using a unified and consistent framework, the text begins with number representation and proceeds through basic arithmetic operations, floating-point arithmetic, and function evaluation methods. Later chapters cover broad design and implementation topics--including techniques for high-throughput, low-power, and fault-tolerant arithmetic--and also feature brief case studies.
An indispensable resource for instruction, professional development, and research in digital computer arithmetic, Computer Arithmetic: Algorithms and Hardware Designs combines broad coverage of the underlying theories of computer arithmetic with numerous examples of practical designs, worked-out examples, and a large collection of meaningful problems.
