Tool to convert numbers with negabinary. The Negabinary system allow to represent positive and negative numbers without bit sign in a binary format (0 and 1) using the base -2.

The numbers in the **negabinary** system are described by the formula:

$$ \sum_{i=0}^{n}b_{i}(-2)^{i} $$

With $ b $ a bit and $ i $ its rank in the inverted **negabinary** development (ordered from the end to the beginning).

To convert an integer, it is enough to make a division repeated by $ -2 $ and to concatenate the obtained remainders starting with the end.

Example: 12 (decimal) in **negabinary** is written 11100 (its successive remainders are 0,0,1,1,1 :

12 / -2 = -6 | remainder 0 | -6*-2 = 12 |

-6 / -2 = 3 | remainder 0 | 3*-2 = -6 |

3 / -2 = -1 | remainder 1 | -1*-2 = 2 and 2+1 = 3 |

-1 / -2 = 1 | remainder 1 | 1*-2=-2 and -2+1 = -1 |

1 / -2 = 0 | remainder 1 | 0*-2 = 0 and 0+1 = 1 |

**Negabinary** writing corresponds to a base $ -2 $ writing system.

Example: 110 (**negabinary**) is equivalent to 2 (base 10) $ 1 \times (-2)^2 + 1 \times (-2)^1 + 0 \times (-2)^0 = 2 $

In nega-binary, negative integers(with a minus sign in base 10) have an even number of bits, while the positive integers(with a plus sign in base 10) have an odd number of bits.
