Re: Old HPMuseum HP-30b primality test on the 41x

No prime number will ever be claimed to be composite. Some composite numbers will be claimed to be prime.

As @Over_score notes the probability of falsely claiming a composite to be prime is 4^-25. Since the test is deterministic, it will always report the same false positives.

Re: Old HPMuseum HP-30b primality test on the 41x

The 43S is using a completely different algorithm for its primality test. It's using Miller-Rabin. It is set up so that gives precise results up to a reasonably large number (3317044064679887385961981), beyond that it is only reporting probable primes.

Here's what I get when I start it in Windows now. It worked before.
You've found the blank nut equivalent.

Re: 43S News

Deleting the configuration file `backup.bin` fixes some problems in my experience.

You restricted the future requirements discussion to only be visible to those currently involved with the project
It isn't as if anyone else has any idea as to what still needs to be done (beyond the vague everything that is missing).

Re: WP 43S Pilot Run (Poll!)

Shhhhhhhh. Three functions and an inverse is four not six.

I'll admit that the inverse of + isn't mandatory.

Re: 43S News

I also have a hard time updating the repository due to the large files on a slow internet connection.
