How I calculated the digits of the MKB constant

GROUPS:

March 12, 2015

What about records of computing the integral analog of the MRB constant? (I call it the MKB constant.) See Google Scholar MKB constant.

Richard Mathar did a lot of work on it here , where M is the MRB constant and M1 is MKB:

M1 (MKB) can be written as and integral of a power of e:

I've gotten Matheamtica to compute 125 digits. However, they are not proven to be correct yet! They are

Notice that WorkingPrecision->100 gave 51 consistant (correct) digits, WorkingPrecision->120 gave 62 correct digits, WorkingPrecision->150 gave 76 correct digits, WorkingPrecision->200 gave 102 correct digits, so it is not too much of a stretch to believe WorkingPrecision->250 gave 125 correct digits.

Going back to integral analog of the MRB constant'

enter image description here:

Using formula 5 on page 3 of http://arxiv.org/pdf/0912.3844v3.pdf

.enter image description here

We can compute a great deal of digits of the integral analog of the MRB constant' (I once called it the MKB constant, named after Marsha Kell-Burns my, now ex, wife.) In the paper Mathar simply calls it M1.

Until further notice in this post when we compute the imaginary part of M1, we will be concerned with the imaginary part's absolute value only,

This time we will compute the Imaginary part first to at least 500 digits:

  a[1] = 0; For[n = 1, n < 11, 
    a[n] = N[2/Pi - 
       1/Pi*NIntegrate[
         Cos[Pi*x]*x^(1/x)*(1 - Log[x])/x^2, {x, 1, Infinity}, 
         WorkingPrecision -> 100*n], 50 n]; Print[a[n] - a[n - 1]], 
    n++]; Print[a[11]]

. Likewise the real part:

b[1] = 0; For[n = 1, n < 11, 
 b[n] = N[-1/Pi*
    NIntegrate[Sin[Pi*x]*x^(1/x)*(1 - Log[x])/x^2, {x, 1, Infinity},

P.S.

I just now finished 750 digits, (about the max with formula 5 from the paper, as far as Mathematica is concerned).

Here is the work:

Mathar gives a simple scheme to find better formulas at http://arxiv.org/pdf/0912.3844v3.pdf . I could use some help in programming it: (I keep getting erroneous results!) Does anyone get the right results here?

Below, where the upper limit of the following integrals shows Infinity, it is meant to be the (Ultraviolet limit of the sequence) as mentioned by Mathar here:

Until further notice in this post when we compute the imaginary part of M1, we will be concerned with the imaginary part's absolute value only,

I derived a new formula for computing the integral analog of the MRB constant':

f[x_]:=x^(1/x);-((2 I)/\[Pi]^3) + 1/\[Pi]^2 - (
 2 I)/\[Pi] + (I/Pi)^3*
  Integrate[(-1)^x*D[f[x], {x, 3}], {x, 1, Infinity}]

In traditional form that is M1=

enter image description here

Using it I computed 2000 digits in only 10.8 minutes:

In[131]:= Timing[f[x_] = x^(1/x); 
 a = N[1/\[Pi]^2 + (1/Pi)^3*
     NIntegrate[Sin[Pi*x]*D[f[x], {x, 3}], {x, 1, Infinity}, 
      WorkingPrecision -> 4000], 2000]; 
 b = N[2/\[Pi]^3 + 
    2/\[Pi] + (1/Pi)^3*
     NIntegrate[Cos[Pi x]*D[f[x], {x, 3}], {x, 1, Infinity}, 
      WorkingPrecision -> 4000], 2000]; 
 Print[N[Sqrt[a^2 + b^2], 2000]]]

I am presently computing 10,000 digits using that formula. Come back here for results!

That formula didn't work out; I will try one of the following formulas.

Here are 2 more, more advanced formulas; remember f(x) is x^(1/x):

I'm getting closer to 10K digits of M1: Using enter image description here , where f(x)=x^(1/x).

I got approx. 10K digits of the imaginary part, but the real part was a little garbled.

Finally using

enter image description here , where f(x) = x^(1/x) ,

.I got about 10000 digits of M1 in about 12 hours. (It showed that the 5000 digit computation was only correct to 4979 digits, though.) Here is a rough program to get it:

   f[x_]:=x^(1/x);  Print[DateString[]]; Print[T0 = SessionTime[]]; prec = 10000;

See attached 10000MKB.pdf and 10KMKB.nb for work and digits.

On May 5, I computed another 10,000 digits in 9.55 hours see attached faster10KMKB.

On May 6, I computed another 10,000 digits in a blistering fast 5.1 hours see attached fastest10KMKB.nb.

On May 9, I improved that timing to 4.8 hours (17355 seconds). Here is the code I used:

d = 15; f[x_] = x^(1/x); ClearAll[a, b, h];
h[n_] := Sum[
  StirlingS1[n, k]*Sum[(-j)^(k - j)*Binomial[k, j], {j, 0, k}], {k, 1,
    n}]; h[0] = 1; g = 
 2 I/Pi - Sum[-I^(n + 1) h[n]/Pi^(n + 1), {n, 1, d}]; Print[
 DateString[]];
Print[T0 = SessionTime[]]; prec = 10000;
Print[N[a = -Re[g] + (1/Pi)^(d + 1)*
      NIntegrate[
       Simplify[Cos[Pi*x]*D[f[x], {x, d + 1}]], {x, 1, Infinity}, 
       WorkingPrecision -> prec*(105/100), 
       PrecisionGoal -> prec*(105/100)], prec]];
Print[SessionTime[] - T0, " seconds"];
Print[N[b =

FelisPhasma has been helpful in providing me with a little competition in computing the integral analog of the MRB constant. See https://github.com/FelisPhasma/MKB-Constant.

I've never done this before. But I so much would like to see others breaking these records that I'm going to give away a program that is practically guaranteed to break my record of 10,000 digits, for the integral analog of the MRB constant in a day or so. The program could use some "clean up" if you care to go that far. (The imaginary part is given as a positive, real constant: it actually starts with a negative sign and of course ends with I.)

Here it is:

f[x_] = x^(1/x); Print[DateString[]]; Print[
 T0 = SessionTime[]]; prec = 11000; Timing[
 Print[a = 
   N[Re[(633666648 I)/\[Pi]^13 - 
       33137280/\[Pi]^12 - ((824760 I)/\[Pi]^11) - 
       136584/\[Pi]^10 - (34784 I)/\[Pi]^9 + 
       5670/\[Pi]^8 + (786 I)/\[Pi]^7 - 90/\[Pi]^6 - (4 I)/\[Pi]^5 - 
       3/\[Pi]^4 - (2 I)/\[Pi]^3 + 
       1/\[Pi]^2 - (2 I)/\[Pi]] + (1/Pi)^12*
      NIntegrate[Cos[Pi x]*D[f[x], {x, 12}], {x, 1, Infinity}, 
       WorkingPrecision -> prec, PrecisionGoal -> prec], prec]];
 Print[SessionTime[] - T0, " seconds"];
 Print[N[b = -Im[(633666648 I)/\[Pi]^13 - 
        33137280/\[Pi]^12 - ((824760 I)/\[Pi]^11) - 
        136584/\[Pi]^10 - (34784 I)/\[Pi]^9 + 
        5670/\[Pi]^8 + (786 I)/\[Pi]^7 + 90/\[Pi]^6 - (4 I)/\[Pi]^5 - 
        3/\[Pi]^4 - (2 I)/\[Pi]^3 + 
        1/\[Pi]^2 - (2 I)/\[Pi]] - (1/Pi)^13*
      NIntegrate[Cos[Pi x]*D[f[x], {x, 13}], {x, 1, Infinity}, 
       WorkingPrecision -> prec, PrecisionGoal -> prec], 
   prec]]]; Print[SessionTime[] - T0, " seconds"]; Print[
 N[Sqrt[a^2 + b^2], prec]]; Print[DateString[]];

Will anyone let me know you are running this program to break my record?

Edit: On Sat 2 May 2015 19:03:45 I started a 15,000 digit, new record computation of the real and imaginary parts and magnitude of the integral analog of the MRB constant, (where the imaginary part is given as a positive, real constant), using the following code.

 f[x_] = x^(1/x); ClearAll[a];
   h[n_] := Sum[
     StirlingS1[n, k]*Sum[(-j)^(k - j)*Binomial[k, j], {j, 0, k}], {k, 1,
       n}]; h[0] = 1; g = -2 I/Pi + 
     Sum[-I^(n + 1) h[n]/Pi^(n + 1), {n, 1, 18}]; Print[DateString[]];
   Print[T0 = SessionTime[]]; prec = 15000;
   Print[N[a = 
       Re[g] + (1/Pi)^19*
         NIntegrate[
          Simplify[Sin[Pi*x]*D[f[x], {x, 19}]], {x, 1, Infinity}, 
          WorkingPrecision -> prec*(105/100), 
          PrecisionGoal -> prec*(105/100)], prec]];
   Print[SessionTime[] - T0, " seconds"];
   Print[N[b = -Im[g] + (1/Pi)^19*
         NIntegrate[
          Simplify[Cos[Pi*x]*D[f[x], {x, 19}]], {x, 1, Infinity}, 
          WorkingPrecision -> prec*(105/100), 
          PrecisionGoal -> prec*(105/100)], prec]];
   Print[SessionTime[] - T0, " seconds"]; Print[
    N[Sqrt[a^2 + b^2], prec]]; Print[DateString[]];

Edit: The program took 33.75 hours,The full run is attached in 15KMKB3.nb.

Edit May 9, 2015: I better than halved my time! I computed 15000 digits in 14.83 hours. See fastestMKB15K.nb/. The faster formula is

If you still want me to write out a code for more digits, for you to break that record, let me know.

Edit:

On Tue 26 May 2015 06:21:00, I started a 30,000 digit computation using the following code.

Does any one else want to try to break the record?

Here is an updated speed record plot, with trendline. (I think the 30,000 digit run can be done faster.)

I think I came up with a rough program that computes any "prec" digits of the integral analog of the MRB constant. It chooses, d, the best (or close to the best) order of derivative to use in Mathar's algorithm mentioned in a previous post (formula (12) at http://arxiv.org/pdf/0912.3844v3.pdf ), Then uses the appropriate code that integrates the integral analog of the constant. It shows the real and imaginary parts as postive real constants and the value the integral, and gives some timings. It could use a lot of cleanup! I hope someone can help me test it with varying values of prec. Please reply your intentions to use it and results.If no one else can clean it up I will after I tested it more.

Edit: On Fri 5 Jun 2015 20:41:45 I started a 35,000 digit computation with the above "automated" program.

Edit: The 35,000 digit computation should be done by 10:24:38 am EDT | Sunday, June 14, 2015. In the above "automated" program I forgot to adjust the MaxExtraPrecision, but that shouldn't affect the accuracy in that program. It already computed the real part of the integral to 35,000 digits and the first 30,000 of those are the same as the real part of my previously mentioned 30,000 digit calculation. I will keep you posted.

Edit: The 35,000 digit computation finished on Sun 14 Jun 2015 06:52:29, taking 727844 seconds. It is attached as 35KMKB.nb. The first 30,000 digits of those are the same as the ones of my previously mentioned 30,000 digit calculation. (That shows the computation didn't take any "wild" turns because of the lack of MaxExtraPrecision.) Further it is a good check of the 30,000 digit run, as all of the bigger computations are of the smaller, because they all are calculated with distinct formulas using different orders of the derivative of x^(1/x).

Feb 28, 2016

For 2000 digits Mathematica 10. 2.0 shows some remarkable improvement over 10.1.2 with the above "automated program" for computing the digits of the integral analog of the MRB constant.

I will post some speed records that are strictly what the program produces in V 10.2.0, below, no picking and choosing of the methods by a human being. Some results will naturally be slower than my previously mentioned speed records, because I tried so very many methods and recorded only the fastest results.

I have to change the program for 40,000 digits! I'll post the new program when I get 40,000 to work.

As of Wed 29 Jul 2015 11:40:10, one of my computers was happily and busily churning away at 40,000 digits of the integral analog of the MRB constant, using the following formula.

Edit: Mathematica crashed at 11:07 PM 8/4/2016

(I used MKB as a symbol for the integral analog because it is called the MKB constant. You can find the name MKB constant at http://www.ebyte.it/library/educards/constants/MathConstants.html .) If you can weed through my code, at the bottom of this reply, you might want to check the formula for the placement of pluses, minuses and imaginary units!!! A little hint when checking if the formula matches the code, d is 80 so Mod[d,4] =0.

f[x_] = x^(1/x) : a[n_] := 
  Sum[StirlingS1[n, k]*
    Sum[(-j)^(k - j)*Binomial[k, j], {j, 0, k}], {k, 1, n}]; a[0] = 1;
g = 2 I/Pi - Sum[-I^(n + 1) a[n]/Pi^(n + 1), {n, 1, 80}]
MKB = -g + (I/Pi)^81*
   Integrate[f[x]*D[f[x], {x, 81}], {x, 1, Infinity}]

Here is the code,cleaned up a little: This is the version from Aug 6, 2015 452 pm; for the first time the imaginary part is signed and shown to be multiplied by the imaginary unit!

Come back to see if I decided whether to try the 40K run again.

EDIT: It looks like I've only got one more test for the program (if it passes) before I retry the 40,000 digit calculation!

EDIT:On Thu 6 Aug 2015 17:23:18, I restarted the 40K run with Windows 10.

EDIT: My first thought was the program took up too much RAM, apparently over 115 GB! ( I have 64GB installed and a 51 GB paging file; nevertheless, Windows 10 closed the Mathematica kernel to keep from the computer from loosing data. Can someone else try the 40K run on their computer? It should take 2 weeks on a fast one. Please let me know if you try it and let me know the results, so I will know I don't have a problem with my computer., If two weeks is too great of a commitment, can you try taking note on the RAM used for two progressively larger runs, like 20K and 30 K? I will do the same, and we can compare notes. Thank You!

EDIT: I've been monitoring memory usage for smaller runs and found the program only uses minimal memory! This makes the action of Windows 10 (closing Mathematica kernel to avoid data loss) all the more a mystery! Could the 40K run really use up all of that RAM?

I know there are quite a few of you viewing this post; however, is anyone out there working on these calculations?.

V. 11 is about 1.25 times faster with my newest program for calculating MKB, (the integral analog of the MRB sum). V 10. 4 calculated 20,000 digits in 121431.1895170 seconds and V 11 did it in 96979.6545388 seconds. I've got a little more testing to do, (about 1 day's worth), then I'll try 40,000 digits again, which should take about 12 days. I will post all my updates here, so you might want to save this message as a favorite so you won't loose it.

Update 1

The 40 K automatically started against my wishes on Thu 11 Aug 2016 15:42:08, (due to my pasting two codes at once). I'll keep you informed, how it goes.

Update 2

Windows 10 is pushing an update. Wednesday is the latest it will let me restart. I will restart now with all the updates I can get, Then deffer further ones and hopefully get 12 restart free days to do my 40K.

Update 3

I ran all the updates I could find, differed further ones and restarted 40K on Sun 14 Aug 2016 10:32:40.

Update 4

Widows 10 stopped the calculation! AGAIN! Can anyone else try it and see if you get anywhere? Here is my latest code:

Sometime in 2017,

To try to get windows 10 from closing Mathematica during the computation I tried the instructions found at https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/177749-stopping-windows-10-from-auto-closing-programs-to-free-up-ram/ . I will record progress in this spot as I did before.

UPDATE I followed the memory usage on my computer and it did use around 64 GB of RAM. And then Windows closed down the Mathematica kernel. I assume that If I can ever afford to maximize my RAM to its 128GB limit the computation will be successful!

Anyone have better luck?

Concentrating on integral analog of the MRB constant:

I think I found out why the integral analog of the MRB constant is so hard to calculate to prec=40000 digits! I've been using too high of an order of the derivative of x^(1/x). I've been running out of memory because of using the 80th derivative from d = Ceiling[0.002 prec], because the 58th derivative from Ceiling[0.264086 + 0.00143657 prec] was apparently to small leaving an error statement. I just now asked myself, why make such a big jump? When my big computer gets back from its tuneup I think I will try Ceiling[0.00146 prec] = 59th derivative.

EDIT

I tried Ceiling[0.00146 prec] and Ceiling[0.00145 prec] in Mathematica 11.0 and lost the kernel both times after 6 - 12 hours!

I'm now trying Ceiling[0.0017 prec] with v 10.4. It's been over 12 hours and I've not lost the kernel yet. Wish me luck!

EDIT

I got the following error message and a real part that does not agree with previous computations.

"NIntegrate failed to converge to prescribed accuracy after 9 recursive bisections in x near {x} = {<<42008>>}. NIntegrate obtained -<<42012>> and <<42014>> for the integral and error estimates."

I'm now trying Ceiling[0.0018 prec] with v 10.4....

Ceiling[0.0018 prec] with v 10.4 gave the same error.

I'm working on a new program that uses less memory; stay tuned!

Update:

V 11.2 cut off its kernel sometime between "Mon 14 Mar 2018 20:00:00" and "Mon 15 Mar 2018 08:00:00."

It seems to me that V11 under Windows 10 cuts off my RAM intensive operations.

The last success I had was using V10.2 under Windows 7. I am trying that combination again, this time for the 40 k digits. Below is the code I used than and am using now. At first I just changed only "prec=35000" to "prac=40000" and got an errant answer for the real part. And I got memory use starting out at

"Thu 15 Mar 2018 08:53:47" 0.3 GB, total computer use 3.84 GB

"Thu 15 Mar 2018 11:48:47" 04.3 GB, total computer use 7.68 GB

"Thu 15 Mar 2018 14:00:00" 01.3 GB, total computer use 5.12 GB

So now I also changed the coefficient of prec from "d = Ceiling[0.264086 + 0.00143657 prec]" to "d = Ceiling[ 0.002 prec]." I think I can get by with .002 because 10.3 in Windows 7 seems to use less memory that the V 11's in Windows 10.

enter image description here

enter image description here

I no longer believe the V 11's use a lot more memory. If I hadn't increased my paging file Windows would have closed Mathematica already!

enter image description here

I might be slowing the computation down a little, but I don't want to take any chances of running out of memory, so I increased the paging file 1 more time. enter image description here enter image description here The computer has been commiting up to 160 GB of total RAM for a while now. enter image description here Finally, the committed memory is going down. enter image description here

My computer is acting real sluggish right now. Mathematica is using a minimum amount of DDR3 RAM, but the computer is still committing a near record of virtual RAM. enter image description here My computer is acting too funny, so I aborted the evaluation. The kernel remained running and overall memory remained maxed out. I tried to retrieve a and b (the variables with the real and imaginary parts of the solution), but the computer wouldn't recall them for me. The computer won't evaluate any Mathematica operations. I am restarting my computer and inspecting the damage!

Update:

Windows said it found no errors on my hard drive; that's great!

I'm going to replace my Intel 6 core processor with a faster 8 -core Intel Xeon E5-2687W v2 CPU, and ad an additional hard drive. The new processor and my motherboard both take 128 GB RAM, but ECC is the only 16G DDR3 mims I can find. I'm not sure if my MSI Big Bang-XPower II will take ECC. 40,000 digits of the integral analog might have to wait for me to get a new system. I am working on a new program to compute the MRB constant in little steps, and will use it on my new processor.
