Scientific Calculator  
Dear Prof Vijilant

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientific_calculator

Can there be further enhancements to the Scientific Calculator device functions in addition to the current functions provided by the Device ?

For examples : Matrix Algebra, Computing real roots of quadratic equation, Simultaneous equations, Vector algebra etc

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
Hello Prashant

I have had a TI92 calculator for many years.  It can solve equations, simplify and factorise algebra, work with matrices, e.g. to solve simultaneous equations, factorise large integers, differentiate and integrate etc.  Also, since it is programmable, there is virtually no mathematical task it cannot do.

I taught John Birt, former Director of the BBC in 1961. His homework book was the most perfect I have ever marked. And also the most neat. I could tell he was destined for great things. One of my classmates was the poet Roger McGough, and I have a mention in his autobiography.
