Sorry for my english.
Why in Sage 5.6

? After digit 5 zero, zero, zero. How to get more digits in Sage?PlezzeRFri, 08 Feb 2013 14:53:21 -0600http://ask.sagemath.org/question/9788/Arbitrary Precision Physics Calculationhttp://ask.sagemath.org/question/8719/arbitrary-precision-physics-calculation/I would like to do some physics problems in high precision. I cannot find any examples or sample worksheets that are accessable on a basic level. I just want real numbers ( including large and small in scientific notation ) I am pretty sure this is not too hard, perhaps it is too simple to be explained? Any help would be appreciated.russ_henselWed, 15 Feb 2012 08:10:52 -0600http://ask.sagemath.org/question/8719/
