It features four symbolic horizontal RAM operand
locations with MAX-PRECISION WIDTH bit each which are organized as eight pieces of MAX-PRECISION-WIDTH/8 bit each.
Here, the operands
to be added up, is divided into four approximately equivalent-delay multi-operand addition blocks.
After the column-based binary operations, binary to decimal conversions are required but the bit sizes of the operands
to be converted are limited based on the columns.
S and D denote the source operands
and the destination operands
Tokens used in expressions Type Token Operand
Operator arithmetic operator function operator parentheses operator Type Description Operand
is a number (an integer or real signed or unsigned value) defines a mathematical constant and its value; two commonly used constants were defined: [pi]s and e the operand
is a variable Operator this category is specific to the common arithmetic operators that were implemented: +, - (unary and binary), *, / and ^ (power) it specifies that the analyzer has identified one of the implemented math functions they are used to indicate a function call or to group expressions (when is necessary to change precedence) Table 3.
The development of operative resources and the repositioning resources operands
can follow a prescriptive model whose focus could be directed to a primary operating feature.
Thus, according to McCloskey's single-abstract-code model (McCloskey, 1992; McCloskey & Macaruso, 1995; Sokol, McCloskey, Cohen, & Aliminosa, 1991), the format effect arises while operands
are being encoded and does not affect the mechanisms of calculation.
This paradigm is based on the assumption that the algorithmic computation performed during the use of procedures impairs the traces in memory of the operands
involved in the problem (Thevenot, Barrouillet, & Fayol, 2001; Thevenot, Fanget, & Fayol, 2007).
In the proposed design of the floating point multiplier, the 24-bit operands
A and B are decomposed into three partitions of 8 bits each.
resources are those which must be acted upon to create value (e.g., an MRI machine), while operant resources are those which act upon operand
resources in value creation (e.g., knowledge of how to operate the MRI machine) (Callaway, Dobrzykowski 2009).
In contrast, Booth encoded multiplication  recodes operands
to reduce the number of costly addition steps.
