## Nitpicker! [Two-Stage / GS Designs]

Hi Hötzi,

» You have a point. IMHO, this question should be answered: yes!

And on basis of this story we will define Hötzi's universal law of BE:
ElMaestro is always right1.

By the way, since you are a speed devotee:
 FindCritCV.Sec=function(Pwr.T, GMR, Nps, Is.St2=1, d=.00001, iniCV) ##the secant method has really nasty properties if the ini value is a little off. {   CV1=iniCV   CV2=CV1*1.05   y2=1   while (abs(y2)>d)   {    y1=Power.calc(Nps, GMR, CV1, Is.St2)-Pwr.T    y2=Power.calc(Nps, GMR, CV2, Is.St2)-Pwr.T    CV3= CV2-y2*(CV2-CV1)/(y2-y1)    CV1=CV2    CV2=CV3   }   return(0.5*(CV1+CV2)) ##or play around } (...)  for (Nps in 6:length(vecCritCVs))   {    if (Nps==6) iniCV=min(0.709*GMR-0.552, 0.709/GMR -0.552)                else iniCV=vecCritCVs[Nps-1]     vecCritCVs[Nps]<<-FindCritCV.Sec(0.8, GMR, Nps, 1, 1e-10, iniCV)   } (...)

Except when he isn't. Which also happens. With regrettable frequency... Pass or fail!
