High Precision Arithmetic Operations: Libraries and Applications

SESSION: High Precision Arithmetic Operations: Libraries and Applications

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 12:15PM - 1:15PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Naohito Nakasato, Fukuko Yuasa

ROOM:301/302/303

ABSTRACT:
The emergence of large-scale and high-speed parallel computing forces us to consider, on a new level, rounding errors in repeated arithmetic operations. Many scientific and engineering problems rely on the numerical stability of the algorithms used, even with conventional "double precision" arithmetic operations. The development of techniques that are truly high precision is important to solve very compute-intensive problems, while an extreme solution is to implement "high precision" arithmetic as hardware. In this BOF, researchers working on high precision arithmetic techniques and applications will meet and present recent progress. We will also discuss on the future developments relevant to HPC.
