Not long ago we did some "study" and posted about using SP to implement DP. In fact, you can not represent one DP by two SP (like it's the case for integers**), due to how the mantissa and the...

You compute a result "modulo something". So, there are only a limited number of possible outcomes. The result is the input of the new "iteration". After long enough time, values will start to repeat,...
