Arithmetic Algorithms in a Negative Base
February 1973 (vol. 22 no. 2)
pp. 120-125
P.V. Sankar, Molecular Biophysics Unit, Indian Institute of Science
Algorithms are described for the basic arithmetic operations and square rooting in a negative base. A new operation called polarization that reverses the sign of a number facilitates subtraction, using addition. Some special features of the negative-base arithmetic are also mentioned.
Index Terms:
Algorithms, basic arithmetic operations, negative base, polarization, square rooting.
