For advanced math, an HP Prime or HP-50G, or the community-made WP-34S (look for more info on this site) are far more capable.

But if you prefer to stay with the 41C, a Clonix-D with the ROMs mentioned above are probably your best bet.

As you learn more about using the Clonix, you can also start to explore some of the much more modern and capable new ROMs, created by Angel Martin, covering lots of topics like Matrices, Complex math, plus a lot of stuff I have not even explored yet. These are new ROMs, still being created today, and offer as much as is possible in a 41C machine (but FAR past what was possible back when the original ROMs were made). Check out the SandMath ROM for example; search this site for information.

Appreciate the mention to the SandMath et al - as Bob says for advanced Math you can always use a bigger stick - but if you fancy the 41 platform then by all means toss the HP-Math Pack into the "historical remnants" bucket. The newer modules are faster and much more complete, even if they're still limited by the 41 architecture/data range/etc.
