I have no idea how this thing gives this accurate result without memory overflow. For desktop computers only a few CAS program can do this.

@ldbeth how much memory does it have? it really looks impressive nevertheless.

@oneofvalts the spec says 256kb with 188kb usable

@ldbeth wow, really mind-blowing. i can't imagine the optimization done on it.

@ldbeth is that the full equation?

@ldbeth My calculus is pretty bad, so I'm not sure if the solution Maxima gives me is equivalent:

solve(ic1(ode2('diff(P,t) = P*(a-b*log(P)), P, t), t=0, P=c), P)

Results in:

P = %e^(log(c)*%e^-(b*t)-(a*%e^-(b*t))/b+a/b)

@loke It just factors out (log c - a/b), so it is equivalent to Voyage 200's result.

@ldbeth i have not performed any checks but, are you sure? maybe they are actually equal?

@ldbeth devil magick, I'd wager

LdBeth@ldbeth@mastodon.sdf.orgFor example, FriCAS appears to give a wrong answer for this.
