### In literature:

Operations for floating point numbers are handled by programming.

### In news:

The first supercomputer to reach one petaFLOPS (one quadrillion floating point operations per second).

The Condor Cluster can achieve about 1.5 GigaFLOPS — floating point operations per second, the unit by which supercomputing power is measured — per watt of computing power.

### In science:

One floating point operation at top speed (i.e. the speed of matrix multiplication) costs one time unit. (2).

Virtual Transmission Method, A New Distributed Algorithm to Solve Sparse Linear System

Measuring the absolute performance of the metacomputer is diﬃcult because the result strongly depends on the fraction of Floating-point Division operations (FDIVs) used in the benchmark code.

Computational Asteroseismology

Table 2.1 lists four different measures of the absolute speed in Millions of FLoating-point Operations Per Second (MFLOPS).
