Publisher description for ScientificCalculatorPrecision63
This is a product which can be found most useful by scientists, engineers, professors, and students. Scientific Calculator Precision 63 works on Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003, Windows XP and Vista. This calculator follows classical approach when uncertainty of f(x) calculation is estimated by formula max(derivative(f))*x*uncertainty(x), where maximum of function derivative is considered on interval [xuncertainty(x), x uncertainty(x)]. Thus sin(2*pi)=0 1E63 and sin(2*1E20*pi)=0 1E43. As we see, the result`s accuracy degrades with growth of argument, but such approach allows to preserve all trigonometry facts like sin(even number*pi x)=sin(x). Calculators with multiprecision allows to calculate sin of big argument, like 1E40, with any precision, but cannot calculate sin(1E40*pi) since they don`t have pi. The pi becomes for them a «floating» number with arbitrary precision. It seems strange, because 2*pi corresponds to one rotation and counting rotations is much easier then measuring 1E40 radians.
