The result from the evaluation of this equation ARCSIN(ARCCOS(ARCTAN(TAN(COS(SIN(9)))))) is 8.99999864267 in the Saturn models: HP-19BII HP-20S HP-22S HP-27S HP-28C/S HP-32S/SII HP-38G HP-39G HP-42S HP-48SX/S/G/GX/G+/GII HP-49G/G+ HP-50G HP-71B Look other results: http://www.rskey.org/~mwsebastian/miscprj/models.htm Best regards, RE: ACURACY - dalupus - 06-22-2016 05:51 PM
HP35S 8.99999986001 HPPrime 8.99999864267 In rpn mode HPPrime 9 in CAS mode Did we actually find a case where the 35s is actually more accurate at a trig function? RE: ACURACY - RPL Calcs - 06-22-2016 06:18 PM
:0 My HP 15C LE, in DEG mode, evaluates to 9.000417403 the same value of the table. The HP 42S emulator evaluates to 9. Quote:HPPrime 8.99999864267 In rpn modeQuestion: HP Prime also emulates Saturn? :-) RE: ACURACY - Jake Schwartz - 06-22-2016 07:08 PM

If it would return anything closer to 9 or even a plain 9 it would run faulty software. BTW the other mentioned value 8,99999864267 is the perfect result for a correctly operating 12-digit calculator. (06-22-2016 06:18 PM)RPL Calcs Wrote: The HP 42S emulator evaluates to 9. I don't think that e.g. Free42 returns 9. Maybe that's what you see, but this is not the calculated result. Subtract 9 from this and see what you get. ;-) Dieter RE: ACURACY - Gerson W.

So this is the expected result. BTW the WP34s returns virtually the same result, here the difference is 6,2465 E–29. You obviously use Free42 Decimal which AFAIK is based on the same 34-digit floating point library. Dieter RE: ACURACY - Dieter - 06-23-2016 08:05 AM

The 35s rounds down the arctan although it should round up: the exact value is 0,999996272743 534... which is rounded to ...43 on the 35s and to ...44 on other calculators. Once this is adjusted the 35s yields the same correct result as the Saturn calculators. On the other hand this is a close case, and the trig functions may have an error of 0,6 ULP, so this still is within the allowed tolerance. Dieter RE: ACURACY - ijabbott - 06-25-2016 06:44 PM

You obviously use Free42 Decimal which AFAIK is based on the same 34-digit floating point library. The floating point library only provides basic arithmetic, square root and natural logarithm and exponential. The trigonometric functions are implemented differently on each. I believe that Free42 Decimal has moved to the Intel decimal library which is different again. It is much faster than the 34S's code but it is also much larger -- there are quite a few large lookup tables and it uses binary arithmetic and transcendental functions to get initial approximations for decimal results. In effect, you end up with two mathematics libraries. Pauli |
