Variable beta : radix.

Notation bpow e := (bpow beta e).

Variable emin prec : Z.

Context { prec_gt_0_ : Prec_gt_0 prec }.

Definition FLT_format (x : R) :=
  exists f : float beta,
  x = F2R f /\ (Zabs (Fnum f) < Zpower beta prec)%Z /\ (emin <= Fexp f)%Z.

Definition FLT_exp e := Zmax (e - prec) emin.

Links between FLT and FLX

Theorem round_FLT_FLX : forall rnd x,
  (bpow (emin + prec - 1) <= Rabs x)%R ->
  round beta FLT_exp rnd x = round beta (FLX_exp prec) rnd x.

Links between FLT and FIX (underflow)
Theorem canonic_exp_FLT_FIX :
  forall x, x <> R0 ->
  (Rabs x < bpow (emin + prec))%R ->
  canonic_exp beta FLT_exp x = canonic_exp beta (FIX_exp emin) x.

Theorem generic_format_FIX_FLT :
  forall x : R,
  generic_format beta FLT_exp x ->
  generic_format beta (FIX_exp emin) x.

Theorem generic_format_FLT_FIX :
  forall x : R,
  (Rabs x <= bpow (emin + prec))%R ->
  generic_format beta (FIX_exp emin) x ->
  generic_format beta FLT_exp x.

FLT is a nice format: it has a monotone exponent...
and it allows a rounding to nearest, ties to even.
Hypothesis NE_prop : Zeven beta = false \/ (1 < prec)%Z.

Global Instance exists_NE_FLT : Exists_NE beta FLT_exp.
