## Mathematical aid

Hi all,

During my research of a ATM theory of relativity, I happen to come across a wonderful little tool. It is a PC calculator that is accurate to 80sf and I have found it very useful checking my less accurate math programme.

It is completely free and has only to be downloaded to your PC. I can recommend it to any of you that work with mathematics.

I hope it is of use to some of you.

2. there is also google's calculator. Just type log3*sin32 for example and click on search.

Also sometimes handy is UBasic, a version of BASIC with 2600 digit precision.

Well heres a query.

It doesnt seem to be able to deal with imaginary numbers.

Actually thats more of a statement, but if anyone knows if it can use imaginary numbers could they tell me?

cheers.

You're not talking about UBasic, are you? Surely not. Ubasic has all that and more. e is #e, and it will give you that number up to over 2600 digits. pi is #pi. And it is specifically designed to handle complex (imaginary) numbers as well.
