Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 149)


This chapter is devoted to arithmetic functions and operations other than the four basic ones. The conversion of binary numbers to radix-B ones, and conversely, is dealt with in Sects. 10.1 and 10.2. An important particular case is B = 10 as human interfaces generally use decimal representations while internal computations are performed with binary circuits.
