Summary: I am a civil/structural engineer, I have used a large variate of calculators. However, none as powerful or versatile as the HP_50g, the device has nearly unlimited functionality for advanced mathematical analysis making it an invaluable tool for practicing engineers and engineering or science...
Summary: There is a saying "Some things should never change." This calculator is an wonderful example. Pros: Released back in 2006, it is an oldie, but goodie. 3d graphing, best fit regression, probability density functions, confidence intervals, complex matrices, fast fourier transforms, taylor polynomials,...
