The amount of precision used in an algorithm trades error for silicon area usage and potential parallelism. This talk will explain the cause of floating point error in computations and show how simple polynomials can be used to describe this error. It will then attempt to describe some background theory which is intended to be used on these polynomials to find tight bounds on the final error in any algorithm. Finally, it will then display some simple examples to illustrate the use of this theory and highlight some of the complexities in creating a general algorithm to use this theory to find minimal error bounds.
