In computer arithmetic two fundamental design principles are of great impor­tance: number representation and the implementation of algebraic operations [21, 22, 23, 24, 25]. We will first discuss possible number representations, (e.g., fixed-point or floating-point), then basic operations like adder and mul­tiplier, and finally efficient implementation of more difficult operations such as square-roots, and the computation of trigonometric functions using the CORDIC algorithm.
