The New IEEE-754 Standard for Floating Point Arithmetic

08021.MarksteinPeter.ExtAbstract.1448.pdf (0.3 MB)


The current IEEE-754 floating point standard
was adopted 23 years ago. IEEE chartered a committee to
revise the standard to include new common practice in
floating point arithmetic, to incorporate decimal floating
point into the standard, and to address the issue of
reproducible results. This talk will visit these issues,
based on the current work of the IEEE-754 revisions
committee, which expects that a new standard will be
adopted sometime in 2008.
