About the Authors
Michael J. Schulte received the BS degree in electrical engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1991 and the MS and PhD degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Texas at Austin in 1992 and 1996, respectively. From 1996 to 2002, he was an assistant and associate professor at Lehigh University, where he directed the Computer Architecture and Arithmetic Research Laboratory. In 1997, he received a US National Science Foundation CAREER Award to research hardware support for accurate and reliable numerical computations. Professor Schulte has consulted for or had joint research projects with Sandbridge Technologies, IBM, Sun Microsystems, ARM, Lucent Technologies, Agere Systems, MIPS Technologies, and Sandia National Laboratories. He is currently an assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he leads the Madison Embedded Systems and Architectures Group. His research interests include high-performance embedded processors, computer architecture, domain-specific systems, computer arithmetic, and wireless security. He is a member of the IEEE and the IEEE Computer Society and an associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Computers and the Journal of VLSI Sgnal Pocessing.
Jean-Claude Bajard received the MSc degree (1990) and the PhD degree (1993) in computer science from the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon and Claude Bernard University, France. In 1993, he joined the University of Provence, Marseille, France, as associate professor, where he earned the "Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches" in 1998. Since 1999, he has been a full professor in computer science at the Institute of Technology (IUT) of the University Montpellier II. He has been doing his research with the CNRS Laboratory, LIRMM UMR 5506, where he was the head of the "Fundamental Computer Science and Applications" Department from 2000 to 2003. Professor Bajard's research interests are in the field of computer arithmetic, in particular, number representations, elementary functions, multiprecision computing, modular arithmetic, finite fields, operators for cryptography, and VLSI algorithms. He is a member of the IEEE Computer Society.
