As we advance into the new century,
computers of the future will require techniques for
arithmetic operations that take advantage of the modern
technology and yield accurate results. Floating-point
arithmetic has been in use for nearly forty years but is
plagued with inaccuracies and limitations which
necessitates introduction of a new concept in computer
arithmetic called composite arithmetic. This paper
describes composite arithmetic and design of an
arithmetic unit based on this concept.
