2 Housekeeping Variable types You should all have copies of the course info sheet. Some things to note: Format: half lectures by me, half by you Monday lecture times (1pm vs 1:30) Textbook Programming & Languages Assignments: 4, mainly during the first half of the course Assignment collaboration/copying policy Presentations: how they work, scheduling (please choose topic and slot by next lecture!) Assessment: no exam (hooray)
3 Housekeeping Variable types You should all have copies of the course info sheet. Some things to note: Format: half lectures by me, half by you Monday lecture times (1pm vs 1:30) Textbook Programming & Languages Assignments: 4, mainly during the first half of the course Assignment collaboration/copying policy Presentations: how they work, scheduling (please choose topic and slot by next lecture!) Assessment: no exam (hooray) Ask questions! (especially stupid ones)
4 Outline Variable types 1 Variable types 2 3
5 Outline Variable types 1 Variable types 2 3
6 logicals/booleans Single bit 0/1 = true/false integers multiple logicals, each corresponding to a power of 2 i.e. just natural numbers base 2 unsigned or signed (+1 sign bit) = 52 fixed point short (15+1bit binary strings) or long (31+1)
7 floating point inexact representation of R sign bit s, mantissa/significand M and exponent e number = ( 1) s M B e E (given base B and offset E) For this example B = 2, E = 129 single ( = 32bit), double ( = 64bit), extended/quadruple ( = 128bit) complex composite of two floatingpoint numbers plus some interaction terms The bible: What Every Computer Scientist Should Know About FloatingPoint Arithmetic Goldberg (1991) (available here)
8 strings/characters cat, dog, PHYS606, etc. each character is encoded by some set number of bits In standard ASCII, there are 7 bits encoding 2 7 = 128 characters (not all printable) a = 97 (dec) = 61 (Hex) = (bin) pointers Integer memory addresses used to refer to other variables, functions, subroutines, pointers, objects, etc arrays, structures, classes, objects, etc Just bundles of other variables, often with additional operations defined on them
9 Limitations Variable types Overflows Above the representable range for number Integers tend to wrap around (or throw errors) Floats go to ±Inf Underflows Only an issue for floats number ±0 NaNs Not a Number Only really exists in floatingpoint specification Most often (at least in my lousy code) results from 1 a divide by 0 2 operations on ±Inf 3 imaginary results for real functions
10 Outline Variable types 1 Variable types 2 3
11 Floatingpoint Multiplication & Division A B 1 XOR (multiply) the sign bit 2 integer add/subtract the exponents 3 integer multiply/divide the mantissae Flush to zero 0 β e min β e + 1 min β e + 2 min β e + 3 min Gradual underflow 0 β e min β e + 1 min β e + 2 min β e + 3 min Going < smallest normalisable number in the rep. causes headaches subnormal/denormalised numbers are inaccurate and slow Rounding/representation error multiplies as floats are operated on always a problem, but magnified with denormalised numbers
12 Floatingpoint Addition and Subtraction A + B (when A > B) 1 shift B to the same exponent as A 2 integer add/subtract the mantissae B = 2, E = 129 again Two numbers are very different in size = the smaller is ignored There exists a smallest number that can be added/subtracted meaningfully from 1.0 machine accuracy Two numbers very similar size = subtraction causes cancellation errors Significant digits are lost, only those affected by roundoff remain
13 on integers Integer operations and arithmetic are fast and exact Well, except for division in this case the remainder is truncated there are other tricks to get quick rounded results Standard logical operations can be performed bitwise on whole integers at once This is good for: quick multiplication or division by 2 extracting/setting combinations of flags (booleans)
14 Outline Variable types 1 Variable types 2 3
15 Typing Variable types Languages can be strongly typed C, Fortran, many others = compatibility of variable types for each expression is checked at compiletime i.e. i n t e g e r : : mynum=3 character ( len =4) : : bird= " duck " mynum = 5!OK mynum = " 5 "! FAIL bird = mynum! FAIL or weakly typed e.g. Perl = type conversion happens automatically sometimes convenient, usually just dangerous Even stronglytyped languages can have implicit typing The golden rule: always declare variable types explicitly in your numerical codes!!!
16 Default widths Variable types Most new systems are 64bit Most scientific code was written on 32bit machines Variable widths can differ! Classic nasty bug: passing pointers between C and Fortran C pointer has same width as long int (32 bits) on 32bit, but twice the width on 64bit Fortran has no separate pointer type (attribute only) Linked CF90 code compiles fine on both machines Crashes with seg fault on 64bit machine, runs OK on 32bit = not enough space reserved for 64bit pointer in CF90 interface
17 Comparison using floatingpoint variables Never, ever write or i f ( myvar. eq. 0.d0 ) i f ( myvar1. eq. myvar2 ) Floating point numbers cannot be trusted to be exactly equal to anything!!! Much safer to write i f ( abs ( myvar ). lt. absprec ) or i f ( abs ( myvar1 / myvar2 1.d0 ). lt. relprec ) where absprec = Aɛ and relprec = Bɛ Floating point comparisons only OK to within some suitable multiple A, B >> 1 of ɛ!!! In practice A and B are set peralgorithm (according to roundoff error, speed, truncation error, etc)
18 Basic optimisation Write things in terms of + and, minimise / if possible i.e. (x+x+x) / (y*z) is faster than 3*x / y / z Multiplication is faster than exponentiation i.e. (x*x) is faster than x^2 at some stage the extra operations add up though; (x*x*x*x*x) is probably slower than x^5 Define any simple function inline if possible There are lots of other tricks modern compilers will do most of these things for you automatically, but you can usually help them out by thinking about minimising number and complexity of operations
19 Renormalisation of variables Avoid working with very big floats Speed  most CPUs are quicker doing double prec than extended prec Space  doubles take less space than extendeds (although nobody seems to care nowadays) Accuracy  it is easy to go beyond the max/min representable number Also avoid working with very small floats Speed  denormalised arithmetic is slooooow Space  as with big floats Accuracy  denormalised arithmetic is inaccurate Instead, choose a scale and renormalise A B A/A max Easier + faster to multiply by a scalefactor afterwards, even if that requires type conversion
20 Renormalisation of variables Consider working in log space if your data spans a huge range of scales, and you care about the small ones e.g. a range of 2 70 is way easier to work with than often a lot faster and more accurate; no huge or tiny floats Easier + faster to exponentiate afterwards, even if that requires type conversion
