Values that are very close to 0.0, and would require the hidden bit to be a zero are called denormalized or subnormal numbers. A basic understanding of oating-point arithmetic is essential when solving problems numerically because certain things happen in a oating-point environment that might surprise you otherwise. “Portable” software intended to reconcile that numerical diversity had become unbearably costly to develop. Arithmetic (MCA) for floating point accuracy verification. Almost every language has a floating-point datatype; computers from PCs to supercomputers have floating-point accelerators; most compilers will be called upon to compile floating-point algorithms from time to time; and virtually every operating system must respond to floating-point exceptions such as overflow. x��Y�O�8��c�P��?�t�iWZ��}ػ�n[��6����t���رB��r��DO���o>�\F~?b����a� }Pj���Ew(�)n�DHN���Kʹ%��� 9�������N�� nqT�,�L�����g��i^��) �S������;�NHy\��FR ��ᆆ��>���6�E��Q���+���J����J���1�,u �����:�"�he�_�#�w���v��5,X(��$B����#q\QL�t�0�O0�{��!n��f>��A*�"�QM�� a��kUI�7� ,xC�3I�Ĵ�owN���\p�q`�c���dz����C�? decimal floating-point arithmetic in computer programming environments. rounding OpenOffice.org 2.4; modified using iText 2.1.7 by 1T3XT endobj Note that the hardware that does arithmetic on floating point numbers must be constantly checking to see if it needs to use a hidden bit of a 1 or a hidden bit of 0 (for 0.0). decimal floating-point arithmetic in computer programming environments.
