The book provides many of the basic papers in computer arithmetic. These papers describe the concepts and basic operations (in the words of the original developers) that would be useful to the designers of computers and embedded systems. Although the main focus is on the basic operations of addition, multiplication and division, advanced concepts such as logarithmic arithmetic and the calculations of elementary functions are also covered.

This volume is part of a 3 volume set:

Computer Arithmetic Volume I
Computer Arithmetic Volume II
Computer Arithmetic Volume III

The full set is available for sale in a print-only version.
