## Summary:

- Trying to understand Booth's Algorithm. Particularly, what is meant by "sum of existing partial products" as Booth defines it in his original paper.

## Main Question or Discussion Point

Trying to understand Booth's Algorithm. There's some YouTube videos online but I decided I'd try by reading Booth's original paper http://bwrcs.eecs.berkeley.edu/Classes/icdesign/ee241_s00/PAPERS/archive/booth51.pdf

Can anyone explain what is meant by "sum of existing partial products"? (Page 3 where the actual algorithm is described)

I don't see where this was defined and it's tripping me up as I'm trying to follow along the example at the bottom.

Thanks for your time.
