The residue number system is an integer number system and is inconvenient to represent numbers with fractional parts. In the symmetric residue system, a new representation of floating-point numbers and arithmetic algorithms for its addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division are proposed. A floating-point number is expressed as an integer multiplied by a product of the moduli. The proposed system assumes existence of necessary conversion procedures before and after the computation.
Cyclic mixed-radix system, exponent part, floating-point arithmetic algorithms, floating-point representation, mantissa, normalized form, number of precision n, symmetric residue number system.
