Description

This contributed work covers, in precise detail, the potential sources of error in floating-point programming and how these trouble spots can be controlled. Explains several methods for improving the accuracy of floating-point programming, concentrating on those methods that are relevant to the exploitation of the Karlsruhe Accurate Arithmetic.
