Here are the steps: Step 1 Divide the current number by -2, write the remainder 0 or 1 on one side. Step 2 Make the quotient the next number and repeat step 1. Step 3 Stop when the quotient is 0 or 1. Step 4 Collect all the remainders in reverse. These numbers seen together represent the base -2 equivalent. The above process works because, we are recursively peeling away a factor of -2 at each step and collecting the remainder which happens to be either 0 or 1. i.e., N = ∑ ≤ i ≤ n- 1 a i * (- 2) i = a * (- 2) + a 1 * (- 2) 1 + a 2 * (- 2) 2 + .. . + a n- 1 (- 2) n- 1 = a * (- 2) + (- 2) * { a 1 + a 2 * (- 2) 1 + .. . + a n- 1 (- 2) n- 2 } where each a i ∈ { , 1 } , ≤ i ≤ n- 1 Solution b We can use weak induction to prove this as follows: Base Case The base case is for a -2 base number with 2 bits: 00, 01, 10, 11 all represent different numbers. Hypothesis Each permutation of k bits uniquely represents some number. This is proved for a pattern that is k + 1 bits long by noticing that each unique number (by IH) represented by the k Least Significant Bits will be added with (- 2) k if the k + 1 th bit is 1. Otherwise, if the bit is 0, the number is still unique among all other k +1 permutations of 0s and 1s. Solution c The rules for addition and subtraction are described next. These are repeated verbatim from the paper Arithmetic Algorithms in a Negative Base, Sankar et al. IEEE Transactions on Computers, Vol 22 Issue 2 pp 120-125 1973 . For two numbers a and b in base- β a = ∑ ≤ i ≤ m a i * (- β ) i b = ∑ ≤ i ≤ n b i * (- β ) i The sum a + b is a + b = ∑ ≤ i ≤ max m,n +2 s i * (- β ) i where s i is defined by the following table. There are two carry digits c * and d * for 1 this addition. The movitation for two digits may be obtained by observing that -1 in base -2 is represented as a pair of digits. Cases c i d i +1 a i + b i + c i s i c i +1 d i +2 ≥ 2 β a ( β- 1) 1 1 ( β- 1) 1 ≥ β ( a i + b i + c i ) mod β < β 1 ≥ β ( β- 1) 1 2 0 or 1 ( a i + b i + c i ) mod β < β Note: a This case ( a i + b i + c i ) ≥ 2 β is not possible for base -2, since the only car- ries possible are 0, 1 and 11. Solution d Now the negative of a number can be represented as follows: Let a be the given number and a be the polarized form. Consider a = m X i =0 a i (- β ) i The above can be manipulated as follows: a =- (- β ) m +1 + ∑ m i =1 (- β ) i ( β + 1- a i ) + ( β- a ) =- a where a = ∑ m +1 i =0 a i (- β ) i The rules for negating a general number can now be given as follows: Rule 1 If a i / ∈ 0, 1 ∀ i , then a = ( β- a ); a i = ( β +1- a i ) for 1 ≤ i ≤ m , and a m +1 =1....
