Paper Abstract

This paper deals with the computation of reciprocals, square roots, inverse square roots, and some elementary functions using small tables, small multipliers, and for some functions, a final 'large' multiplication. We propose a method that allows fast evaluation of these functions in double precision arithmetic.The strength of this method is that the same scheme allows the computation of all these functions.
