**Subject: householder quip**

Two weeks ago I posted a note to NA Digest asking about the origin of a

quip, supposedly by Alston Householder, that he would be afraid to fly

in an airplane designed using floating point arithmetic.

The most definitive information comes from Frank Olver:

> I heard about this story long ago and have referred to it sometimes

> in lectures about the level-index system of computer arithmetic

> during the past ten years. It did not surprise me because there

> was a great deal of controversy about the floating-point system in its

> very early days. However, before using the quotation I phoned Alston (on

> May 16, 1987) to check whether he had indeed made such a statement

> at a public meeting. He said that he had done so "when he was young

> foolish" and added that this was of course at a time before Jim

> Wilkinson's error analysis of floating-point arithmetic.

Thanks also to respondents Vladik Kreinovich, Francois Robert, G. Sande,

James Lyness, Richard Lehoucq, Rob Schreiber, and Ali Sazegari who

provided some additional interesting and amusing remarks about the quip.

Apparently the exact details about when and where Householder made the

remark are no longer known.

LAST CALL FOR PAPERS

3nd CONFERENCE REAL NUMBERS AND COMPUTERS

http://www-anp.lip6.fr/RNC3/

Location and date :

LIP6 laboratory, Pierre et Marie Curie University

Paris, FRANCE

April 27-28-29 1998

The conference continues the series of RNC-symposia which have been held

in St-Etienne (France, 1994) and Marseille (France, 1995). These conferences

traditionally cover all the aspects in relationship with an efficient

handling of real numbers on computers : program portability problems, "exact

arithmetics", numerical reliability, number systems, architectures etc.

Many members of the scientific community are concerned by these problems,

they could share their knowledge and come up with solutions. But they do not

have the opportunity to meet, they do not belong to the same scientific fields

(computer science, number theory, numerical analysis, computer algebra) and

they have a different vocabulary. One of the aims is to put them together

during this meeting.

The topics covered by the conference are

- Algorithms and architectures for "serial" and "on line" arithmetic.

- Relations between number theory, automata theory and computer arithmetic.

- Number systems

- Floating point arithmetic

- Calculability

- Symbolic manipulation of numbers

- Algorithms for "exact" computing

- Multi-precision, interval arithmetic, stochastic arithmetic ...

- Accuracy problems in various fields (geometry, physics,...), and proposed solutions.

NEW BOOK

Multirate and Wavelet Signal Processing by Bruce W. Suter

Academic Press (a volume in Charles Chui's Wavelet Analysis and Its Applications Series),

October 1997, ISBN 0-12-677560-5.

This innovative and in-depth book integrats the well-developed theory and practical

applications of one dimensional and multidimensional multirate signal processing. Using

a rigorous mathematical framework, it carefully examines the fundamentals of this rapidly

growing field. Areas covered include: building blocks of multirate signal processing,

fundamentals of multidimensional multirate signal processing, multirate filter banks,

lossless lattice structures, and an introduction to wavelet signal processing. The book

forms the basis of a graduate course in multirate signal processing. It includes an

introduction to wavelet signal processing and emphasizes topics of ever-increasing

importance for a wide range of applications. Concise and easy-to-read, this book is also

a useful primer for professional engineers.
