A so called staggered precision arithmetic is a special kind of a multiple precision arithmetic based on the underlying floating point data format (typically IEEE double format) and fast floating point operations as well as exact dot product computations. Due to floating point limitations it is not an arbitrary precision arithmetic. However, it typically allows computations using several hundred mantissa digits. A set of new modified staggered arithmetics for real and complex data as well as… CONTINUE READING
