I reported this to developers. High precision did not help. This table shows A and B for m from 20 through 30. The abrupt shortening of B indicates a serious loss of precision. In[6]:= TableForm[Transpose[{Table[A[m], {m, 20,30}],Table[B[m], {m, 20,30}]}]] Out[6]//TableForm= 0.419886555129855029654837453844 0.41988655512985502965483745384 0.328259796930959361070958387260 0.32825979693095936107095838726 0.398245020787387108367524678102 0.39824502078738710836752467810 0.315205193626757526825920947227 0.31520519362675752682592094723 0.379546184348484872056578766116 0.37954618434848487205657876612 0.303636947478787897645263012893 0.30363694747878789764526301289 0.363185052103483552259991664800 0.46 0.293290056237618722960725048919 0.38 0.348716667009967811654448190761 0.45 0.283961607601577453895776081908 0.38 0.335805666917848927883918114003 0.45 FM
