# Extended maths UDF

## Recommended Posts

This is a nearly complete compilation of all the useful maths scrips and scraps I have seen over my time here. And I hope between this and jennicos primes suite we will have a practically complete set of maths functions!

BigInt's

Loosely based on Wus' functions, these form half the UDF, and are also the biggest let down as I can't quite get BigIntDivide to work . Nevertheless, as far as I know they are the only really complete (ish) set.

Edit: Eukalyptus' BigNum UDF is far more complete and generally better than mine, so I would advise using that instead.

Fibonacci

Just based on some school work I am doing on binet's formula (google it, its an interesting read!). Decided that since most of the other fibonacci generators are still adding togethor the last two it seems someone ought to show em how it should be done!

trig

The amount of confusion the current trig functions cause means this should help some people get by! Basically, before you had to enter in radians, and the return was in degrees. This just converts before / after to make sure its same in + same out! Also added is some Rad and deg functions, just for completion.

Misc

Most have been released before now in their own topics, such as my root and round functions. Quadratic is once again school work that I decided to add, mostly to test my StringRegExp skills

Pascal *NEW*

Only one function at the moment: _PascalGetLine. Read reply: for details. I may add some more functions here in a similar way to fibonnaci section if people are interested.

Updated the source with a new function: _PascalGetLine.

It returns a specific line of pascals triangle, without recursively adding the above 2 values. It's probably got very little use... the only thing I am trying it out with is binomial coefficients, but I like the way it worked out. I am also pretty impressed that I was able to do it

I hope people decide to show some interest here soon, i'm practically talking to myself here.

I think any efforts to get more maths functions into AutoIt are great, so well done!

I think you may be missing $sAng from _MathArcSin ($nIn) though.

What stage are you at in school? Calculus will open a whole new world of coding for you when you get to it.

I wish AutoIt had been about in the 90's when I studied maths properly.

I can see where you're going with the BigInt funcs, and it's a really good effort, but I think you may have been pipped at the post.

Keep up the good work!

I'm taking my GCSE next month (a year early). Calculus is differentiation isn't it? I haven't thought about it much...

I never saw those bignums... but I wish I had! Thats is some very interesting scripting, I particularly like the way he's padded the numbers, I think thats very clever. The fact theres a seperator allowed too is a nice addition.

Thanks for the _MathArcSin thing too, I don't know how thats in there, my clipboard must have broken

Looking at your round function and it looks really cool and comprehensive. That said, I think you need to say what the acceptable numbers are for each parameter in the header.

I know what you mean,

I released that funtction alongside a more detailed page on what the options meant in this thread:

http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=102686&view=findpost&p=728361

and this site:

http://auto-mat-ic.webs.com/Pages/UDFs/Rounding/Rounding.html

I am in the process of updating it to be a wiki page on my google code page (see sig). So it may not be perfect, and I have not tested the links for a long time... But they are on my google code page already.

There are also some constants, which I don't think made it into the udf ....

hi mat,

i was playing around with wus' bigint functions and made the multiplication 200 times faster. instead of mod and div and floor i just used string functions, muuuuuch faster. it makes 100! in half a scond !

i think the whole bigint part needs a complete renovation. will see what i can do.

j.

I gave up on that as it had already been done, these are pretty fast, but I'll test a bit more later.

I can see a few places where it could be optimized (or at least tidied) a bit more...

I think you adapted those from Wus' originals as well. I'll give it the headers and rename the functions after school.

thx for the link. this is nearly impossible to find since it does not use "bigint" or "bigdec" in the post !

i was working on floating big decimals but if this has been done before... i will test it.

j.

Edit: i tested the _BigNum UDF by Eukalyptus and i am impressed. it is even faster than mine and handles bigint and float bigdec. - the coding is very advanced and seems perfect to me. WOW ! so i will give up my project.

I did use Binet's formula originally to calculate the Nth Fibonacci number, like this: (1 / Sqrt (5)) * ((((1 + sqrt (5)) / 2) ^ $n) - (((1 - Sqrt (5)) / 2) ^$n))

That was a long time ago, and I had completely forgotten about Binet!
