2 Trick Question for ( double d = 0; d!= 0.3; d += 0.1 ) System.out.println( d );

3 We stopped here last time

4 Normalization (in decimal) y = (normal = standard form) y = x 10 2 y = x 10 11

5 Normalization (in binary) y = ( d) y = x 2 3 y = x 10 11

6 Normalization (in binary) y = decimal y = x 2 3

7 Normalization (in binary) y = decimal y = x 2 3 y = x binary

8 x sign mantissa exponent

9 But, remember, all* numbers have a leading 1, so, we can pack the bits even more efficiently! *really?

10 implied bit! x sign mantissa exponent

11 IEEE Format S Exponent (8) Mantissa (23) 24 bits stored in 23 bits!

12 y = y = y = bbbbbbbb

13 y = x bbbbbbbb Why not ?

14 How is the exponent coded?

15 bbbbbbbb bias of 127

16 bbbbbbbb

17 y = x * 2^3 Ah! 3 represented by 130 = =

18 Verification in IEEE FP

19 Exercises How is 1.0 coded as a 32-bit floating point number? What about 0.5? 1.5? -1.5? what floating-point value is stored in the 32-bit number below?

20 1.0 = = = = = = - (stored exp = 131 > real exp = 4) = x 2^4 = x 16 = -31

21 what about 0.1?

22 0.1 decimal, in 32-bit precision, IEEE Format:

23 0.1 decimal, in 32-bit precision, IEEE Format: Value in double-precision:

24 NEVER NEVER COMPARE FLOATS OR DOUBLEs FOR EQUALITY! N-E-V-E-R!

25 for ( double d = 0; d!= 0.3; d += 0.1 ) System.out.println( d );

26 bbbbbbbb

27 Zero Why is it special? 0.0 =

28 bbbbbbbb {if mantissa is 0: number = 0.0

29 Very Small Numbers Smallest numbers have stored exponent of 0. In this case, the implied 1 is omitted, and the exponent is -126 (not -127!)

30 bbbbbbbb {if mantissa is 0: number = 0.0 if mantissa is!0: no hidden 1

31 Very Small Numbers Example: (2-126 ) x ( ) binary + (2-126 ) x ( ) =

32 bbbbbbbb?

33 Very large exponents stored exponent = if the mantissa is = 0 ==> +/-

34 Very large exponents stored exponent = if the mantissa is = 0 ==> +/-

35 Very large exponents stored exponent = if the mantissa is = 0 ==> +/- if the mantissa is!= 0 ==> NaN

36 Very large exponents stored exponent = if the mantissa is = 0 ==> +/- if the mantissa is!= 0 ==> NaN = Not-a-Number

37 Very large exponents stored exponent = if the mantissa is = 0 ==> +/- if the mantissa is!= 0 ==> NaN

38 = = = NaN

39 Operations that create NaNs ( The divisions 0/0 and ± /± The multiplications 0 ± and ± 0 The additions + ( ), ( ) + and equivalent subtractions The square root of a negative number. The logarithm of a negative number The inverse sine or cosine of a number that is less than 1 or greater than +1

40 // import java.util.*; import static java.lang.double.nan; import static java.lang.double.positive_infinity; import static java.lang.double.negative_infinity; Generating NaNs public class GenerateNaN { public static void main(string args[]) { double[] allnans = { 0D / 0D, POSITIVE_INFINITY / POSITIVE_INFINITY, POSITIVE_INFINITY / NEGATIVE_INFINITY, NEGATIVE_INFINITY / POSITIVE_INFINITY, NEGATIVE_INFINITY / NEGATIVE_INFINITY, 0 * POSITIVE_INFINITY, 0 * NEGATIVE_INFINITY, Math.pow(1, POSITIVE_INFINITY), POSITIVE_INFINITY + NEGATIVE_INFINITY, NEGATIVE_INFINITY + POSITIVE_INFINITY, POSITIVE_INFINITY - POSITIVE_INFINITY, NEGATIVE_INFINITY - NEGATIVE_INFINITY, Math.sqrt(-1), Math.log(-1), Math.asin(-2), Math.acos(+2), }; System.out.println(Arrays.toString(allNaNs)); System.out.println(NaN == NaN); System.out.println(Double.isNaN(NaN)); } } [NaN, NaN, NaN, NaN, NaN, NaN, NaN, NaN, NaN, NaN, NaN, NaN, NaN, NaN, NaN, NaN] false true

41 NaN is sticky!

46 What does it have to do with Art?

47 Rosetta Landing on Comet 10-year trajectory

48 We stopped here last time

49 Why not using 2 s Complement for the Exponent? = = = =

50 Exercises Does this converter support NaN, and? Are there several different representations of +? What is the largest float representable with the 32-bit format? What is the smallest normalized float (i.e. a float which has an implied leading 1. bit)?

51 How do we add 2 FP numbers?

52 1.111 x x x x 2 8 after expansion x x x 2 8 locate largest number shift mantissa of smaller compute sum x 2 8 = x 2 8 round & truncate normalize = x 2 9

53 fp1 = s1 m1 e1 fp2 = s2 m2 e2 fp1 + fp2 =? denormalize both numbers (restore hidden 1) assume fp1 has largest exponent e1: make e2 equal to e1 and shift decimal point in m2 > m2 compute sum m1 + m2 truncate & round result renormalize result (after checking for special cases)

54 What are the "dangers" of adding 2 FP numbers?

55 Algorithm for adding a Series of FP numbers?

56 How do we Multiply 2 FP Numbers?

57 1.111 x 2 5 x x x 2 5 x x x = x 2 1 after expansion multiply mantissas normalize round & truncate = x 2 1 normalize = 14 add exponents =

58 fp1 = s1 m1 e1 fp2 = s2 m2 e2 fp1 x fp2 =? Test for multiplication by special numbers (0, NaN, ) denormalize both numbers (restore hidden 1) compute product of m1 x m2 compute sum e1 + e2 truncate & round m1 x m2 adjust e1+e2 and normalize.

59 How do we compare two FP numbers?

60 Check sign bits first, the compare as unsigned integers! No unpacking necessary!
