(07282019 12:02 AM)Albert Chan Wrote: I lookup "A Source Book in Mathematics", chapter "On the Bernoulli numbers": That is a very neat method, I was not aware of that one. However, it seems that all similar exact methods require n+(n1) storage registers to calculate B(n) since one needs to keep the (n1)th row of the difference table in memory while calculating the nth row. EDIT: I tried your program as well as the AkiyamaTanagiwa method as used in the third program here on the HP48G and both methods fail due to catastrophic rounding error for n>10. These methods may only be practical for languages that use exact rational arithmetic.
