The record of manual approximation of π is held by William Shanks, who calculated digits correctly in the years preceding Since the middle of the 20th century, the approximation of π has been the task of electronic digital computers (for a comprehensive account, see Chronology of computation of π).

Following your link to Abromowitz & Stegun, one can read that they borrowed those approximations from Hasting: Approximation for digital computers, but Hastings as well as A&S doen't provide any explanation, how to obtain those approximations.

The report deals with minimax approximations to functions defined on the real line. These approximations are of particular use to mathematicians having access to a digital computer facility.

The cases considered are for functions defined as discrete points on the Cartesian plane and for continuous, bounded functions defined on a closed interval. Introduction To Computers: Hardware and Software In this section of notes you will learn about the basic parts of a computer and how they work.

Approximations for digital computers by Hastings, Cecil, Publication date In physics and cosmology, digital physics is a collection of theoretical perspectives based on the premise that the universe is describable by is a form of digital ontology about the physical reality.

According to this theory, the universe can be conceived of as either the output of a deterministic or probabilistic computer program, a vast, digital computation device, or a.

On the other hand, books on computers and networks do not demonstrate a deep understanding of the intricacies of developing software. In this book you will learn, for example, how to quantitatively analyze the performance, reliability, maintainability, and availability of computers, networks, and software in relation to the total system.

Malvino's book is a very good approach to electronics engineering, and it's lot easier with his circuit approximations. Over 20 years of experience in this field, and the old way of learning is still the s:   Likewise in the equations which define the successive approximations, j ranges over all integers different from i.

On the other hand, if we are going to perform the required calculations on a digital computer, we cannot really assign t i j = 03 for fictitious links. No computer will accept the value "co";it is not in its vocabulary.

The approximations are mainly performed with the so-called "transformed variable." This is because relevant transfer functions have notoriously ill-conditioned polynomials.

In other words, the transformed variable is used to reduce numerical inaccuracies when the algorithms are executed using a digital computer. Get this from a library.

Metamodeling: a study of approximations in queueing models. [Subhash Chandra Agrawal] -- "In recent years, many approximate methods have been developed for analyzing queueing models of complex computer systems.

These ad hoc methods usually focus on specific aspects of system operation. it doesn't get much drier than this, oy vey. a good enough book should you need hellapproximate an elliptic integral on hardware of Watts Riots vintage.

i mean, the math hasn't changed (though why five pages are devoted to Chebyshev expansions is beyond me; anyone reading "computer approximations" knows Chebyshev), but the authors assume one doesn't have, say, a desktop 4/5(1). Additional Physical Format: Online version: Freiberger, Walter F.

Numerical analysis - Numerical analysis - Approximation theory: This category includes the approximation of functions with simpler or more tractable functions and methods based on using such approximations.

When evaluating a function f(x) with x a real or complex number, it must be kept in mind that a computer or calculator can only do a finite number of operations.

An analogue computer consists of a collection of circuit modules capable of individually performing summation, scaling, integration or multiplication of voltages, and also function-generating modules.

On the most up-to-date systems these modules contain integrated-circuit operational. The book also gives attention to the Chebyshev least-squares approximation, the Chebyshev series, and the determination of Chebyshev series, under general methods. These general methods are useful when the student wants to investigate practical methods for finding forms of approximations under various situations.
