The IEEE 754–2008 Standard governs Floating-Point Arithmetic in all types of Computer Systems. The Standard provides for two radices, 2 and 10. It specifies conversion operations between these radices, but does not allow floating-point formats of different radices to be mixed in computational operations. In contrast, the Standard does provide for mixing formats of one radix in one operation. In order to enhance the Standard and make it closed under all basic computational operations, we propose… CONTINUE READING
