Physicist/Artist who fools around with electrons, photons, pixels and bits. Currently in San Diego, formerly of Socorro NM, Orlando FL, Boulder CO, Ann Arbor and other places in Michigan.

Mainly, I've been making 2D and 3D illustrations and animations, writing explanations for things in physics, astronomy and electronics, writing software for image processing and science number-crunching, and teaching the cats to do my work for me. Regrettably, the latter endeavor has been a total failure.

comment Approach to simplifying an algorithm
It appears that the question is about recognizing ways to improve a given algorithm, not about calculating values for that particular expression. The expression is just an example to study.

comment How to name a variable when the word is both a noun and a verb
"Current" = now, or "current" = flow of charge. The only real solution is to replace English with a more sensible language!

Some languages do have features that support unit testing - such as D with its unittest keyword.
