Decimal floating-point division using Newton-Raphson iteration

  title={Decimal floating-point division using Newton-Raphson iteration},
  author={Liang-Kai Wang and Michael J. Schulte},
  journal={Proceedings. 15th IEEE International Conference on Application-Specific Systems, Architectures and Processors, 2004.},
Decreasing feature sizes allow additional functionality to be added to future microprocessors to improve the performance of important application domains. As a result of rapid growth in financial, commercial, and Internet-based applications, hardware support for decimal floating-point arithmetic is now being considered by various computer manufacturers and specifications for decimal floating-point arithmetic have been added to the draft revision of the IEEE-754 Standard for Floating-Point… CONTINUE READING
