Abstract : The paper presents a pseudosystematic minimally asymmetrical binary code, called unipositive, in which the product of two arbitrary non-overflow numbers is a non-overflow number, and the represented numbers belong to the range--1, 1. Algorithms of arithmetical operations in this code, being a contrary notation of 2's complement code, are discussed. Both codes have been compared with respect to their usefulness in digital computers, and the unipositive code seems to be more useful.
