  • John S. Walther, "A Unified Algorithm for Elementary Functions," Spring Joint Computer Conference Proceedings, Vol. 38, pp.379-385, 1971.

It is not easy to get them especially Walther's paper. However, you can find them both in Computer Arithmetic by Earl E. Swartzlander, Jr., Published by the IEEE Computer Society Press, 1990.
