Abstract:

The software requirements for real time applications of microprocessors have received little attention from the scientific community. This reflects the need for the development of efficient algorithms to evaluate special functions for such purposes. The aim of this paper is to report on initial efforts to develop software for evaluation of the square root function in microprocessors utilizing fixed point computation. Numerical results of the performance of these algorithms are described for both eight and sixteen bit precision machines. Author
