122 | \section*{Bitfields And Portions Of Integers} |

123 | |

124 | \begin{vworkmathtermglossaryenum} |

125 | \item \mbox{\boldmath $a_{b}$} |

126 | |

127 | The $b$th bit of the integer $a$. Bits are numbered with the |

128 | least significant bit ``0'', and consecutively through |

129 | ``$n-1$'', where $n$ is the total number of bits. |

130 | |

131 | In general, if $p$ is an $n$-bit unsigned integer, |

132 | |

133 | \begin{equation} |

134 | \nonumber p = \sum_{i=0}^{n-1} 2^i p_i . |

135 | \end{equation} |

136 | |

137 | \item \mbox{\boldmath $a_{c:b}$} |

138 | |

139 | The integer consisting of the $b$th through the |

140 | $c$th bits of the integer $a$. Bits are numbered with the |

141 | least significant bit ``0'', and consecutively through |

142 | ``$n-1$'', where $n$ is the total number of bits. |

143 | |

144 | For example, if $p$ is a 24-bit unsigned integer, then |

145 | |

146 | \begin{equation} |

147 | \nonumber p = 2^{16}p_{23:16} + 2^{8}p_{15:8} + p_{7:0} . |

148 | \end{equation} |

149 | |

150 | \item \mbox{\boldmath $a_{[b]}$} |

151 | |

152 | The $b$th word of the integer $a$. Words are numbered |

153 | with the |

154 | least significant word ``0'', and consecutively through |

155 | ``$n-1$'', where $n$ is the total number of words. |

156 | |

157 | In general, if $p$ is an $n$-word unsigned integer |

158 | and $z$ is the wordsize in bits, |

159 | |

160 | \begin{equation} |

161 | \nonumber p = \sum_{i=0}^{n-1} 2^{iz} p_i . |

162 | \end{equation} |

163 | |

164 | \item \mbox{\boldmath $a_{[c:b]}$} |

165 | |

166 | The integer consisting of the $b$th through the |

167 | $c$th word of the integer $a$. Words are numbered with the |

168 | least significant word ``0'', and consecutively through |

169 | ``$n-1$'', where $n$ is the total number of words. |

170 | |

171 | For example, if $p$ is a 24-word unsigned integer and |

172 | $z$ is the wordsize in bits, then |

173 | |

174 | \begin{equation} |

175 | \nonumber p = 2^{16z}p_{[23:16]} + 2^{8z}p_{[15:8]} + p_{[7:0]} . |

187 | |

188 | \item \mbox{\boldmath $0$} |

189 | |

190 | $\mathbf{0}$ (in bold face) is used to denote either a vector or matrix |

191 | populated with all zeroes. Optionally, in cases where the context is not clear |

192 | or where there is cause to highlight the dimension, $\mathbf{0}$ may be subscripted |

193 | to indicate the dimension, i.e. |

194 | |

195 | \begin{equation} |

196 | \nonumber |

197 | \mathbf{0}_3 = \left[\begin{array}{c} 0 \\ 0 \\ 0 \end{array}\right] |

198 | \end{equation} |

199 | |

200 | \begin{equation} |

201 | \nonumber |

202 | \mathbf{0}_{3 \times 2} = \left[\begin{array}{cc} 0&0 \\ 0&0 \\ 0&0 \end{array}\right] |

203 | \end{equation} |

204 | |

205 | \item \mbox{\boldmath $I$} |

206 | |

207 | $I$ is used to denote the square identity matrix (the matrix with all |

208 | elements 0 except elements on the diagonal which are 1). |

209 | Optionally, in cases where the context is not clear |

210 | or where there is cause to highlight the dimension, $I$ may be subscripted |

211 | to indicate the dimension, i.e. |

212 | |

213 | \begin{equation} |

214 | \nonumber |

215 | I = I_3 = I_{3 \times 3} = \left[\begin{array}{ccc} 1&0&0 \\ 0&1&0 \\ 0&0&1 \end{array}\right] |
