comment Computing the inverse Jacobi function $\mathrm{arccd}$ with elliptic integrals
I get $a=1.6859350333 + 0.763854942178i$ using $F_2\left(\arcsin\left(\sqrt{\frac{1 - x^2}{1 - mx^2}}\right)\bigg| m\right)$. Maple uses a different parameter however; see math.stackexchange.com/questions/375110/…. Also, the inverse Jacobi functions are multivalued (dlmf.nist.gov/22.15).

comment Why is propositional logic not Turing complete?
Thank you for the detailed answer. By feedback you mean sequential circuits, right?

comment Why is propositional logic not Turing complete?
I've heard about this, but they can be considered to be Turing complete for practical purposes, correct? In that they can perform any computation that a Turing machine can up to a memory limit.

comment Calculating a derivative from a Maclaurin series
What do you mean? The terms for $n=1$, $n=3$, $n=5$, etc. are not zero.

comment Calculating a derivative from a Maclaurin series
I'm still not sure why having $2n$ in the exponent makes it the $2n$th term. When did it switch from being the $n$th to the $2n$th?

comment Calculating a derivative from a Maclaurin series
Thank you. This works, but why? Isn't the $n$th term of a Maclaurin series always $\frac{f^{(n)}(0)\;x^n}{n!}$?

comment Benford's law with random integers
Yes, I meant as the lower bound goes to infinity. Thank you!

comment Benford's law with random integers
What do you mean? Wouldn't it approach Bentford's law?

Thank you! I'll look more into this.
