Found my answer on the Google Play site....

I feel o raised to the 0 power still should be equal to 1...here is a video that shows why I say that... https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_conti...0_mi8ngNnM

02-09-2019, 10:31 PM

You made improvements on the SOLVE function for version 2.023...If the video I linked above convinces you that 0 to the 0 pwer should be 1, then you should make another "improvement" to the original HP 42S and implement back 0^0=1. I think improvements in accuracy in this case is warrented of that video convinces you that 0^0 is 1...

02-09-2019, 11:21 PM

Wait, I take it back...The latest version of Mathematica says 0 raised to the 0 power is "indeterminate"...So ignore the video I posted here...I go with Mathematica on the issue...Keep it as is...

Looks like RPL machines likes 0^0=1...go28 and droid48sx gave this answer...

Go41 displays DATA ERROR

My free42 for android also gave 1, maybe it's not updated yet.

Go97 gives error

15C android gives error

Android Voyage 200 gives undefined

This is very interesting...

I am not a mathematician (yet), so may I ask opinions from Gerson, Joe, Ed, Dieter, and others about this subject?

Thanks

Edited: Real 71B gives warning 0^0 and afterwards displays 1

Real 50g gives an interrogation signal "?"

Real 48gx confirms 1

Real Casio FX-880p gives S/N ERROR

Thanks, I did the update and it shows the error now.

The source archive contains a HISTORY file with the changelog:

If you are interested in the actual code changes, you can have a look at my Free42 release mirror repository on GitHub (core/gtk only because I had no other history when I started collecting the releases in a repository).

Code:

`2019-02-09: release 2.0.23`

* SOLVE now tries harder when secant extrapolation gets stuck due to the secant

being excessively steep.

* 0^0 now returns Invalid Data, not 1, for all combinations of real and complex

arguments. The rationale for returning 1 was mathematically questionable, and

Invalid Data is what the real HP-42S returns.

* iPhone version: added basic iPhone X support.

I was more interested in know why some HP, like 28s and 48 calculators shows 1 as an answer.

It returns "?" in exact mode and "1" in approximate mode.

$$f(x)=x^{-1/\ln(x)}.$$

As \(x\to 0^+\) both \(x\) and the power it is raised to tend to zero, so it is tempting to write \(f(0)\) as \(0^0\). But for all positive values of \(x\), \(f(x)\) is equal to \(1/e\), so

$$\lim_{x\to 0^+}f(x)={1\over e}.$$

So to give a value to the expression \(0^0\) it is necessary to know how the limit was reached. Because of this the expression itself is indeterminate.

Heh. Since it always takes a while for the Android and iOS versions to appear in their respective on-line stores, I decided to upload them before updating my own web site for a change. And guess what, this time the Android version appeared in the Play Store INSTANTLY. Oh well!

You still could have checked the release notes in the Play Store though. Or waited a few minutes for my web site to get updated.
