Floating-point arithmetic is the most widely used way of implementing real-number arithmetic on modern computers. However making such an arithmetic reliable and portable yet fast is a very difficult task. As a result floating-point arithmetic is far from being exploited to its full potential. This handbook aims to provide a complete overview of modern floating-point arithmetic. So that the techniques presented can be put directly into practice in actual coding or design they are illustrated whenever possible by a corresponding program. The handbook is designed for programmers of numerical applications compiler designers programmers of floating-point algorithms designers of arithmetic operators and more generally students and researchers in numerical analysis who wish to better understand a tool used in their daily work and research.
