RE: Programming Exercise (HP15C, 15C LE  and others)
I implemented the two term version of this on my "HP55".
Here is the code (sorry its not in location/keycode form but you get the idea): Code:
For N=100, it took about 82sec to finish. Based on this it would take about 2.25hours for N=10000. Notice that I used double quotes around "HP55", that's because I don't own a real HP55 calculator (I only own a HP32SII, HP48SX, HP48GX, and HP50G). What to do if you don't own a classic HP? Use an emulator?  Boring!! You build your own classic HP calculator, of course. For a learning experience (and for fun), I implemented a classic HP "core" in a Xilinx FPGA (designed in VHDL). I build this from scratch based on info I gleamed from the web (including the HP Museum). It can run ROMs for a HP35, HP45 and HP55. My "HP55" runs at two speeds:
In turbo mode, with N=10000, my "HP55" completes this task in just under 5 seconds! I think, even if its not the fastest time posted, that's a record for classic HP hardware. Brian (If anyone wants more info on the FPGA Classic HP Core I designed, let me know and I'll try to write something up for a thread in the "Not quite HP Calculators  but related" forum.)

Never mind, here it is: Very accurate result in 2 h 16 m 53s. Not bad for a calculator in 1975! I don't have an HP55 either, but it should take exactly the same on a physical one. I've used Eric Smith's Nonpareil HighFidellity Calculator Simulator (I don't have a working link right now, sorry!). (03282014 03:18 AM)bkn42 Wrote: What to do if you don't own a classic HP?

Sorry, I forgot to mention the result from the turbo mode of my FPGA based HP55. The result was: 0.693097183
It seems people are interested in my FPGA design. So, I'll start a thread in the other forum describing its details. It might be a few days before I get something written. Brian

Nobody mentioned that entering $$\sum _{ K=1 }^{ 10000 }{ \frac { { (1 })^{ K+1 } }{ K } }$$ on the Prime with no need for any sort of coding would instantly return 0.693097183025
Is that off scope consideration for this thread? I know that the prime is blazing fast but the speed is so impressive that I wonder if the calculator is actually performing a loop?

Too bad the last two digits are wrong, though. This is the CAS, I presume, but the Prime has a more exact mode, I think. This approximation is exact to 20 digits. The HP71B evaluates it in 0.17 seconds: Code:
.69309718306 .17 For the HP71B, that's instantly :) Gerson.

Can you do even better? Cheers Thomas

This is the CAS, I presume, but the Prime has a more exact mode, I think.This was in Home mode (the clue is the upper case variable name, Home accepts only upper case, CAS is on lower case). BTW when I enter this (with lower case 'k') into CAS I get the message "Error: Invalid dimension". Oh well, that is just the Prime being primeitive...

I overlooked that when I suggested the Prime CAS was inexact for this one. It turns out I was inexact. Sorry! The HP 50g gives the same result for item (a): '∑(n=1,10000,(1)^(n+1)/n)' EVAL > 0.693097183025 For item (b), the Prime should give the same result we get on the HP 50g: '∑(n=1,10000,(1)^n/(10001n))' EVAL > 0.693097183059 However this takes too long on the HP 50g: 1 minute 50 seconds. Cheers, Gerson.

Could you try the following (similar to Gerson's 2nd example on the HP50g): $$\sum_{K=1}^{10000}{\frac{{(1})^{K}}{10001K}}$$ Thanks Thomas PS: When I tried this on the emulator I got: Error: Invalid input IIRC this was an issue with the original firmware which was fixed meanwhile. I didn't bother to upgrade. Is a new version of the emulator available?

The Casio fx115ES Plus took just over 11 minutes to arrived at the answer of 0.6930971831. It's a good thing these models are solar powered Not bad for $20 machines.
