bibliography, floating-point arithmetic
Author Comments:
[From Norbert Juffa:] This is a bibliography of material on floating-point arithmetic that I came up with while doing research on a floating-point package of his own. I don't claim it to be anywhere near complete. The material listed is only what I myself possess. My main interest was in software based, binary floating-point arithmetic on a microprocessor, so you won't find much material about the hardware used in floating-point arithmetic (e.g. adders, carry propagation schemes, higher radix representation for multiplication and division, etc.) in this list. There is also not too much on non-binary floating-point arithmetic.
For most fields covered in this bibliography, the important or historically relevant articles should be included. There is also some material on integer arithmetic in this list as some of the methods used with integer arithmetic contain interesting ideas that may be useful in the realization of a floating-point arithmetic package.
Also, depending on the type of microprocessor used, one may need to implement integer multiplication and division for use in the floating-point package, so articles about this topic are included as well.
As I am German, there is a bit of material in German in this bibliography. However, English translations are provided for all non-English titles.
Thanks to the people who have helped me with previous versions of this document by sending me papers or additional references: Steven Sommars (sesv at, Jim Kiernan (jmk at, Warren Ferguson (ferguson at, Nhuan Doduc (ndoduc at, K. C. Ng ( at
[From Nelson H. F. Beebe:] I took Norbert Juffa's unmarked-up bibliography data, converted it to BibTeX form, and then more than doubled the size of the bibliography by supplying additional entries on floating-point arithmetic extracted from my own extensive bibliography collections, and from several online journal databases, including the Compendex, OCLC, IEEE INSPEC, MathSciNet, and UnCover databases.
