RE: Electronic Calculators: which notation is the better?
This is a very interesting paper indeed. Thanks SlideRule. Keep those reference coming.
The paper makes the further statements (not that surprising for people in this forum): "The difference observed between the AN [algebraic notation] and the RPN calculations showed a clear superiority in speed and accuracy in favour of the RPN calculator, statistically significant even with the modest sample sizes used." "In terms of practical choice between calculators, it would appear that RPN is faster and more accurate overall but particularly for technical users and particularly for more complex problems."
