Annotation This guide provides instructions for constructing numerical infrastructure and application programs for the Itanium architecture. Chapters concentrate on topics like application registers, floating-point architecture, memory and speculation, assembly language programming, division and square root, and run-time support. The book outlines the techniques and illustrates them with tested examples. The authors are algorithm designers with PhDs. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com).
Annotation Covering key and unique architectural features of the Itanium processor that make it the platform of choice for high-quality numerical software, this reference provides numerous examples of typical floating-point computations presented in assembly and/or high-level languages. Included are discussions of run-time support for scientific and engineering computations, support for high-precision computations, and a number of selected kernel libraries that can be used in numerical calculations, and high-level language tools and support available on Itanium-based platforms (for C/C++ and Fortran 90). Also covered is porting scientific and engineering software from other platforms to those based on Itanium processors.
