Euler constant |
I am using PARI/GP 2.0.17 for Windows. For realprecision = 32000 or higher, Euler leads to the message " *** division by zero in R/S". For several reasons I became sceptical as to the reliability of the Euler value for higher realprecision, so I compared the digits produced by Pari for realprecision 25000 and the digits given by J. Borwein, 170000 digits of Euler or gamma constant: < http://www.worldwideschool.org/library/books/sci/math/MiscellaneousMathematicalConstants/chap35.html > and found that from digit 19292 onward there is disagreement. Digits 19281 to 19300: 05228370342108957865 on the web page, 05228370342566205373 by PARI. Can someone confirm this observation? Is it a known bug? Klaus
