We will not dive deeper into this. Specific exercises for this section: Exercises 20–21. ✐ ✐ ✐ ✐ ✐ ✐ ✐ ✐ 32 Chapter 2. 5 Exercises 0. Review questions (a) What is a normalized floating point number and what is the purpose of normalization? (b) A general floating point system is characterized by four values (β, t, L,U ). Explain in a few brief sentences the meaning and importance of each of these parameters. (c) Write down the floating point representation of a given real number x in a decimal system with t = 4, using (i) chopping and (ii) rounding.

D1 d2 d3 · · · dt −1dt dt +1 · · · ) × β e using only t digits, it is possible to use one of a number of strategies. The two basic ones are • chopping: ignore digits dt , dt +1, dt +2 , dt +3 . d1 d2 d3 · · · dt −1 + β 1−t × β e , fl(x) = dt < β/2, dt > β/2. In case of a tie (dt = β/2), round to the nearest even number. 3. 4.

Why is the former considered more damaging than the latter? (f) What is a cancellation error? Give an example of an application where it arises in a natural way. (g) What is the rounding unit for base β = 2 and t = 52 digits? (h) Under what circumstances could nonnormalized floating point numbers be desirable? (i) Explain the storage scheme for single precision and double precision numbers in the IEEE standard. 1. The fraction in a single precision word has 23 bits (alas, less than half the length of the double precision word).
