- Jun 4, 2001It's interesting that neither Marcel nor I could
conjure up a an argument for digits^6.
Maybe there's some fancy complexity argument that
gives this asymptotically. But my finger counting
couldn't get beyond digits^5.
So maybe instead of A*(d+const)^6 one should
just fix A*d^c, at d digits. Including a constant might
have masked a growth slower than digits^6.
I think one should fit the exponent to the data.
Just plot log(time) against log(digits) and
measure the slope of the best fit.
