Applications of the Proposed IEEE 754 Standard for Floating-Point Arithetic
Various features of the proposed standard provide an especially convenient environment for programming numerical procedures such as the familiar elementary functions.
A Proposed Standard for Binary Floating-Point Arithmetic
TLDR
This proposed standard facilitates transportation of numerically oriented programs and encourages development of high-quality numerical software.
A Proposed Radix- and Word-length-independent Standard for Floating-point Arithmetic
Besides making the proposed IEEE 854 standard available for comment, this article explains how to overcome some of its implementation problems.

Proposal for a language compatible arithmetic standard
TLDR
The following proposal for an arithmetic standard has been submitted and is being processed by the ANSI X3T2 committee and the ISO/IEC JTC1/SC22/WG11 working group.
An Efficient Fixed-Point Multiplier Based on CORDIC Algorithm
Fixed-point multiplication is an important operation that is frequently used in many digital signal processing (DSP) applications. The operation is computationally intense and very often the perfor...
Floating-point computation using a microcontroller
TLDR
For the authors' application, where there was plenty of time to perform calculations and program memory to store the software required to perform the calculations, incorporation of assembly-language floating-point routines (compatible with ANSI/IEEE Std 754-1985) was an effective method.

TLDR
Ryū, a new routine to convert binary floating point numbers to their decimal representations using only fixed-size integer operations, is presented and its correctness is proved.
Error Analysis of Certain Floating-Point On-Line Algorithms
TLDR
From the range of the redundant significand and the absolute error of on-line operations, the MRRE (maximum relative representation error) is defined and analyzed for floating-point on- line addition and multiplication.
A floating-point VLSI chip for the TRON architecture: an architecture for reliable numerical programming
A description is given of the Gmicro/FPU (floating-point unit), a chip that provides floating-point instructions for both the Gmicro/200 and the Gmicro/300 microprocessors. The VLSI
