Closing this report.  Comment By: Nobody/Anonymous (nobody) Date: 20080501 11:15 Message: Logged In: NO Yes, you are correct regarding the roundoff errors in the algorithm. My misunderstanding was thinking that fpprec would yield output that was significant to that many decimal places. Is there an equivalent way to do in Maxima what is done in Mathematica with N[expr,n]?  Comment By: Raymond Toy (rtoy) Date: 20080501 09:06 Message: Logged In: YES user_id=28849 Originator: NO What does "output at fpprec" mean? fpprec in Maxima means that all bfloat operations will use fpprec digits in the calculations. Note that el(x) has significant roundoff issues as x becomes small. sqrt(1x^2/4) is not very accurate for small x. For small x sqrt(1x^2/4) is approximately 1, and then we essentially subtract that from 1, incurring even more roundoff. But, L_old starts as an exact integer, so, in fact, all intermediate calculations are done exactly. Then we compute bfloat(cr), which may not necessarily be the best way to compute the result. The symbolic expression does not take into consideration roundoff issues. I don't think this is a problem with maxima or the computations.
