Revisiting "What Every Computer Scientist Should Know About Floating-point Arithmetic"

Abstract : The differences between the sets in which ideal arithmetics takes place and the sets of floating point numbers are outlined. A set of classical problems in correct numerical evaluation is presented, to increase the awareness of newcomers to the field. A self-defense, prophylactic approach to numerical computation is advocated.
