Optimization of Reciprocals and Square Roots on the i860 Microprocessor

    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    The i860 microprocessor lacks both a divide and a square root instruction. The consequences of this for code involving many reciprocal square roots, such as many-body simulations involving Coulomb-like potentials, are discussed with a particular emphasis on high performance.
