**Division (digital)**— Several algorithms exist to perform division in digital designs. These algorithms fall into two main categories: slow division and fast division. Slow division algorithms produce one digit of the final quotient per iteration. Examples of slow… …122

**Extraneous and missing solutions**— In mathematics, an extraneous solution represents a solution, such as that to an equation, that emerges from the process of solving the problem but is not a valid solution to the original problem. A missing solution is a solution that was a valid …123

**Liu Hui's π algorithm**— is a mathematical algorithm invented by Liu Hui (fl. 3rd century), a mathematician of Wei Kingdom. Before his time, the ratio of the circumference of a circle to diameter was often taken experimentally as 3 in China, while Zhang Heng (78… …125

**Alpha 21164**— Four 300 MHz Alpha 21164 microprocessors on a Cray T3E 600 processor board. The Alpha 21164, also known by its code name, EV5, is a microprocessor developed and fabricated by Digital Equipment Corporation that implemented the Alpha instruction… …126

**TI MSP430**— The MSP430 is a microcontroller family from Texas Instruments. Built around a 16 bit CPU, the MSP430 is designed for low cost, low power consumption embedded applications. The architecture is reminiscent of the DEC PDP 11.The MSP430 is… …127

**Arbitrary-precision arithmetic**— In computer science, arbitrary precision arithmetic indicates that calculations are performed on numbers whose digits of precision are limited only by the available memory of the host system. This contrasts with the faster fixed precision… …128

**Loop nest optimization**— (LNO) is a special case of loop transformation, dealing with nested loops, that allows large reductions in the cache bandwidth necessary for some common algorithms.Example: Matrix multiplyMany large mathematical operations on computers end up… …
