This is a computer engineering term. Digital computers use a binary system in which all values are reduced to two: 0 and 1. To represent negative numbers, engineers have developed a method called “complementary mathematics” ALHISAB AL-TAKMILIYY
The online Glossary of Computer Engineering at the University of Central Florida School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science defines complementary mathematics as follows:
“complementary arithmetic: A method of performing integer arithmetic within a computer, in which negative numbers are represented in such a way that the arithmetic may be performed without regard to the sign of each number.”
The word “complementary” is derived from the term “complement” TAKMILA
which is defined (by the same dictionary) as follows:
1) To swap 1s for 0s and 0s for 1s in a binary number.
2) Representing negative numbers.
Based on this understanding, I hope it will now make sense to present a definition of diminished radix complement:
“A form of the complement representation of negative numbers. In the binary system the radix complement is called the 2s complement and the diminished radix complement is called the 1s complement.”
The word “radix” JITHR
is defined by the Computer Desktop Encyclopedia as follows:
“the base value in a numbering system. For example, in the decimal numbering system, the radix is 10.”
Based on all the above (if I have not confused you yet), I would translate “diminished radix complement” as TATIMMA JITHRIYYA MUSAGH-GHARA
