Answers to Questions (FAQ)

What is negabinary? (Definition)

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

How to convert a decimal number into negabinary?

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 = -6remainder 0-6*-2 = 12
-6 / -2 = 3remainder 03*-2 = -6
3 / -2 = -1remainder 1-1*-2 = 2 and 2+1 = 3
-1 / -2 = 1remainder 11*-2=-2 and -2+1 = -1
1 / -2 = 0remainder 10*-2 = 0 and 0+1 = 1

How to convert a Negabinary number to Decimal?

To convert a number from base $ -2 $ to base 10, apply numeric base change algorithms.

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

How to recognize a positive or negative integer in negabinary?

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.
