RE: Acron RPN announces v3.0 BETA
I'm pretty sure I remember my numeric algorithms professor saying that doing a trapezoidal Riemann sum wasn't worth the added cost over rectangular  you were better off spending the extra time doing additional iterations. Not sure whether I misremember that, or if he was just wrong, but when I sat down and really thought about it, I was able to switch my algorithm to use trapezoids with almost no cost. That improved the precision by 35 decimal places
0.333283335000000 > 0.333333335000000 2.302990159819040 > 2.302585159819040 Then I changed from 10,000 iterations to 25,000 iterations. That improved the x^2 by two digits; it only improved the 1/x by half a digit. 0.333333335000000 > 0.333333333600000 2.302585159819040 > 2.302585103686040 That seems like a good improvement, and even with 25,000 iterations, I don't notice any slow down. I'm currently looking at releasing BETA 2 this weekend  these changes will be in it. Thanks for the great suggestion. On a side note, how did you insert math equations in a forum post? That is really cool.
