Arithmetic and Logic in Computer Systems provides a useful guide to a fundamental subject of computer science and engineering. Algorithms for performing operations like addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division in digital computer systems are presented, with the goal of explaining the concepts behind the algorithms, rather than addressing any direct applications. Alternative methods are examined, and explanations are supplied of the fundamental materials and reasoning behind theories and examples. No other current books deal with this subject, and the author is a leading authority in the field of computer arithmetic. The text introduces the Conventional Radix Number System and the Signed-Digit Number System, as well as Residue Number System and Logarithmic Number System. This book serves as an essential, up-to-date guide for students of electrical engineering and computer and mathematical sciences, as well as practicing engineers and computer scientists involved in the design, application, and development of computer arithmetic units.

Review quote

"...the perfect concise reference for computer arithmetic, and I highly recommended it to anyone involved in the study or implementation of such systems." (Computing, June 7, 2005) "This comprehensive treatment of computer arithmetic is ideally suited for upper-level undergraduate or graduate students." (Computing, May 12, 2004) "Lu has prepared one of the best books this reviewer has read...An Excellent book for graduate and senior undergraduate engineering and computer science students." (Choice, July 2004)

Back cover copy

A practical introduction to fundamentals of computer arithmetic Computer arithmetic is one of the foundations of computer science and engineering. Designed as both a practical reference for engineers and computer scientists and an introductory text for students of electrical engineering and the computer and mathematical sciences, Arithmetic and Logic in Computer Systems describes the various algorithms and implementations in computer arithmetic and explains the fundamental principles that guide them. Focusing on promoting an understanding of the concepts, Professor Mi Lu addresses: Number representations, including the Conventional Radix and Signed-Digit Number Systems as well as Floating Point, Residue, and Logarithmic Number Systems Ripple Carry Adders and high-speed adders Sequential multiplication, parallel multiplication, sequential division, and fast array dividers Floating point operations, Residue Number operations, and operations through logarithms To assist the reader, alternative methods are examined and thorough explanations of the material are supplied, along with discussions of the reasoning behind the theory. Ample examples and problems help the reader master the concepts.
