ÐThis paper presents a floating-point addition algorithm and adder pipeline design employing a packet forwarding pipeline paradigm. The packet forwarding format and the proposed algorithms constitute a new paradigm for handling data hazards in deeply pipelined floating-point pipelines. The addition and rounding algorithms employ a four stage execution phase(More)
We develop a formal account of digit serial number representations by describing them as strings from a language. A preex of a string represents an interval approximating a number by enclosure. Standard on-line representations are shown to be a special case of the general digit serial representations. Matrices are introduced as representations of intervals(More)

This paper presents a thorough analysis of radix representations of elements from general rings, in particular we study the questions of redundancy, completeness and mappings into such representations. After a brief description of the more usual representations of integers, a more detailed analysis of various complex number systems is performed. This(More)
