What are the limits of Geogebra's abilities?

Hi,

I'm sorry if this is asked before but i couldn't find any similar topic.


I've recently tried to make a Sierpinski triangle, by the same approach, first by using geogebrascript, then using javascript (mostly to call geogebrascript commands). In both cases the constraction works with no problems up to a number of iterations (managed to have a triangle of depth 10 in the first case and 7 in the second). So, my question is, what causes this problems? Is it computer dependant or GeoGebra dependant (or both). Of course I know my construction may not be well optimised, but this shouldn't change the situation dramatically.

What are the limits of what GeoGebra can calculate and constract?

It depends on the memory and speed of your computer


As a general point, try to minimise the number of GeoGebra objects that you create (and close the Algebra View :) )

Thanks Michael. I have 8GB of memory and an i7, so i guess its the big number of items i create that causes the problems.

Does Algebra view really affect that much? (I'm not sure if that's a joke or not :-))

It can do, it makes more work for the computer
