Does anyone have or know of an English or Spanish translation for the article "CALCULATRICES: LAQUELLE EST LA PLUS PRECISE?"

This is a funny thing. I have this Science & Vie issue just in front of me !!!

:D

Hi John. Google Translator is ideal for this:

"CALCULATORS: WHICH IS THE MOST ACCURATE?

Regards,

John

Was that the article from 1980 which had several programs to calculate several hundred digits of pi?


#6

Yes

Thanks, John. I was able to translate the title; however my very poor French won't handle the text of the article. I just thought that perhaps someone had translated it or that there was an English or Spanish version of the magazine.

For a translation of a followon article on calculating many digits of pi go to Viktor Toth's site (www.rskey.org/) , go to the Library, go to Texas Instruments, go to PPC Notes and go to V8N4. You will find a translation on pages 21 ff.

Thank you, Palmer. Only a partial translation, but still interesting reading.

Is the original french article on the web somewhere?

Yes, it is archived on the french vintage magazine site.

That's not the one I remember, although I remember that one. The other one was published later and pitted the following calculators:

HP-41
HP-67
TI-59
Sharp PC-1211

It was another Pi shoot-out.

I remember the HP-41 being declared the winner. That article was the spark that lighted my HP lust.

Anyone know what Science et Vie number that was?

Hello,

It was number n°759.

You can find scans for all articles mentionned here at the following address.
