Gamma function differences? Message #1 Posted by Nelson M. Sicuro (Brazil) on 30 Aug 2003, 11:40 p.m.
Hi to all!
I was just playing with my hp42S and my newly arrived (and fixed!) HP11C, and I found this difference:
In the Gamma function (in HP11C shared with factorial [n!]) I found these results:
HP11C: n = 68.5, result = 2.056343638e97
HP42S: n = 68.5, result = 3.0019615151e95
HP11C: n = 67.5, result = 3.00196151e95
HP42S: n = 67.5, result = 4.44735039275e93
HP11C: n = 66.5, result = 4.447350392e93
Commodore SR4190: n = 68.5, result = 3.00196151995e95
Commodore SR4190: n = 67.5, result = 4.44735039501e93
I'm just curious (as I don't have the HP11C user's manual): the argument for Gamma function in the HP11C is added by 1 internally?
Regards,
Nelson
