A representation for binary coded ternary (BCT) numbers is proposed. This representation is then used for the introduction of algorithms for ternary addition and subtraction on binary hardware. In the algorithm introduced, distinction is made between basic algorithms, i.e., those which are independent of the type of the arithmetic, and those which are dependent upon it. Some suggestions as to the significance of this approach for nonternary arithmetic are presented.
Computer arithmetic, microprogranmming, nonbinary logic.
