Abstract

This paper presents a high-speed method for computing elementary functions using parallel table lookups and multi-operand addition. Increasing the number of tables and inputs to the multi-operand adder significantly reduces the amount of memory required. Symmetry and leading zeros in the table coefficients are used to reduce the amount of memory even further. This method has a closed-form solution for the table entries and can be applied to any differentiable function. For 24-bit operands, it requires two to three orders of magnitude less memory than conventional table lookups.
