Data structures such as *BMDs, HDDs, and K*BMDs provide compact representations for functions which map Boolean vectors into integer values, but not floating point values. In this paper, we propose a new data structure, called Multiplicative Power Hybrid Decision Diagrams (*PHDDs), to provide a compact representation for functions that map Boolean vectors into integer or floating point values. The size of the graph to represent the IEEE floating point encoding is linear with the word size. Thedoi:10.1109/iccad.1997.643251 dblp:conf/iccad/ChenB97 fatcat:s7qr5ao2e5e7pji7olz5iuso5y
