Organization: IEEE
Publication Date: 13 June 2019
Status: active
Page Count: 86
scope:

This standard specifies formats and operations for floating-point arithmetic in computer systems. Exception conditions are defined and handling of these conditions is specified.

Purpose

This standard provides a method for computation with floating-point numbers that will yield the same result whether the processing is done in hardware, software, or a combination of the two. The results of the computation will be identical, independent of implementation, given the same input data. Errors, and error conditions, in the mathematical processing will be reported in a consistent manner regardless of implementation.
