No problem! I just thought 1 024.000 000 000 000 on the WP 34S would look nicer than 1 024.000 000 00 on the HP-35S. :-) Notice 326 = 2*163 and 163*pi = 512 + 1/(4*pi). From here, not too difficult to improve the near-integer result. 56 posts and counting. You'll get there! Really super!, I agree. Gerson. RE: Senior Membership - Jlouis - 03-10-2015 11:51 PM

I have a WP34s on a IPad, but I really like to press real buttons. I'm planning to buy one from Eric soon, as I don't have the skills to flash one. Grande abraço.

What did you guys do! 1024 is a nice, simple, power of 2. 10000000000b. You had to go and throw pi into it, no pun intended. What's pi in binary, anyway?? Oh well, it's Gerald's member number so I guess it's up to him. RE: Senior Membership - PANAMATIK - 03-11-2015 08:53 AM

With this, there is no need to have long digit lists.- Pauli RE: Senior Membership - Thomas Klemm - 03-11-2015 10:25 AM

For ln(9/10) 1/(g*10^g) for g from 1 upwards gives the base 10 digits. Edit: I too should keep up to date. Thanks for reducing my ignorance! But then again, I'm not sure Plouffe is correct - he has a history. Edit: OK, convinced. RE: Senior Membership - Thomas Klemm - 03-11-2015 11:20 AM

There is also this paper by Xavier Gourdon: Computation of the n-th decimal digit of π with low memory Quoting the abstract: "This paper presents an algorithm that computes directly the n-th decimal digit of π in sub-quadratic time and very low memory. It improves previous results of Simon Plouffe, later refined by Fabrice Bellard. The problem of the n-th digit computation in base 2 had already been successfully treated thanks to the use of appropriate series, but no corresponding formula for the question in base 10 has been found yet. However, our result is a progress. Another result in this paper permits to compute directly the n-th decimal digit of π with intermediate memory size, leading to intermediate time complexity between linear and quadratic." Gerson.
