David Plume, jointly
supervised by Alex
Simpson and myself, implemented a calculator
for exact real number computation as his BSc honours project. If
you prefer, here is a postscript version of
the report. The implementation of the calculator is available in the following tar files:
I also supervised David McGaw,
who worked on the Golden-ratio
notation for exact real number computation for his BSc project, which made him a
finalist for the British Computer Society Best Student of the Year
Award in 1999.
- I have also supervised three other undergraduate projects on exact
real number computation.
This picture of myself was taken during the first CCA Workshop by Vasco Brattka, when I was talking about PCF extended with real numbers:
