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 (
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.
