Abstract

We show how one can search for the worst cases for correct rounding of the exponential function in the IEEE 754r 64-bit decimal format, and give such bad cases that have been found so far. This work can be extended to other elementary functions in the decimal64 format, and allows the design of reasonably fast routines that will evaluate these functions with correct rounding, at least in some domains.
