What Every Computer Programmer Should Know About Floating-Point Arithmetic

I'm a part-time master's student in Stanford's ICME program and at the departmental seminar I recently gave a talk, What Every Computer Programmer Should Know About Floating-Point Arithmetic. This is a refinement and update of JavaOne talks I've given with a similar title.

This is great information. I came over this info on Sun's Website and there were a couple of new items in this PDF that were cool: specifically, the hard info about the IEE formats and where they will "let you down" if you take them for granted was a very useful approach. Thanks!
