Karlsruhe Accurate Arithmetic

Karlsruhe Accurate Arithmetic (KAA) or Karlsruhe Accurate Arithmetic Approach (KAAA), augments conventional floating-point arithmetic with good error behaviour with new operations to calculate scalar products with a single rounding error.[1]

The foundations for KAA were developed at the University of Karlsruhe starting in the late 1960s.[2][3][4]
