CERN Accelerating science

Mini-Workshop on Floating-Point Computation

Date: 
Tuesday, 9 May, 2017 -
09:00 to 16:00

The workshop will be run by Jeff Arnold, former Intel staff software engineer and a long-standing collaborator with CERN openlab. The target audience for this workshop are those who wish to gain a basic understanding of the fundamentals of floating-point arithmetic and computations. While extensive knowledge of floating-point arithmetic is not assumed, experience with scientific programming in C, C++ or Fortran is required.
