Floating-point number arithmetic


This miniseries on floating-point numbers will be divided into three parts:

  1. The basics, which will cover the definition and representation of floating-point numbers
  2. A simplified example that will show explicitly why floating-point is not associative
  3. Real-world examples and possible ways of reducing the risk of arithmetic anomalies

 

Since this miniseries uses LaTeX extensively I have decided to publish the series using Azure Websites.  Happy reading!
