CAS numerics, lists, and spreadsheet
Alasdair shared this question 6 months ago
I have three questions:
- In the CAS view, is it possible to force numeric output, rather than using the Numeric function? I have a function which returns large fractions, in which I'm not interested - I only want their numeric values.
- I would like to create a recursively defined list. In the CAS view, I can use Iterate(f,x0,n), but the result is a single value, and not a list. The function IterationList does no seem to exist in the CAS view.
- I cannot get cell referencing to work in the spreadsheet. If I have a value in A1, and put f(A1) in A2, then copying A2 down into A3, A4 etc simply copies the value already in A2. What I want is for A3 to contain f(A2), A4 to contain f(A3), but I can't seem to be able to.
Thanks very much,
