While the RTL implementation of integer multiplication is more complex than that of integer addition, the extended problem of floating-point multiplication does not present any significant difficulties that have not already been addressed, and is, in fact, much simpler than floating-point addition. The focus of this chapter, therefore, is the multiplication of natural numbers. All of our results can be readily extended to signed integers.
