50 digits precision handheld calculator is it achievable or not?
This is a hypothetical question. Can a 50 digits precision handheld calculator be achievable with today's technology? I am not a programmer. I was just curious to know the numerous hurdles to accomplish such a task.
This is an open discussion. Software requirement and hardware that would be the size of a mobile phone. My interest is pure entertainment. This was sparked by my new found interest in homebrew calculators and the complexity of the technology. I think that the hp42s has 25 digits internal precision. Please correct me if I am wrong and the hp 50g is 15 digits. Regards, JeanMarc
