I'm looking forward to reading the material. Nov 17 comment What algorithm is used by computers to calculate logarithms? @Aryabhata: If I google "What algorithm is used by computers to calculate logarithms", then the first answer shown is this StackExchange webpage, and the first answer is yours with the broken links. That is not very useful. Nov 15 comment What algorithm is used by computers to calculate logarithms? @Aryabhata: The links in your post are no longer active. Regarding your statement "this pdf you can find by a google search of the title," what title are you referring to? I would like to search for whatever that is. Oct 17 accepted Probability of server cluster failure Oct 14 awarded Supporter Oct 14 comment Probability of server cluster failure Thank you. Now that I look further, I find it kind of extraordinary that $Pr$(0 servers fail) = $0.00592$. That seems really low when each of the servers seems pretty stable with each having probability $0.95$ of failing. But the math proves it, I guess. Oct 14 comment Probability of server cluster failure Thanks. So when I was earlier computing that $Pr$(2 server fails) = $0.95^{98}×0.05^2$, does that imply that I was computing the probability that the first 98 servers were good and the last 2 servers failed?
