Enjoying the article. Looks like there's a math typo at the tail of the "Precision Bound" section: $$\log\left(\frac{x e}{n}\right) \leq \frac{1}{n}\log(\eta)$$  is not equivalent to $$\frac{xe}{n} \leq \eta^{-n}$$  The latter should be $$\frac{xe}{n} \leq \eta^{1/n}$$  and the "$x^{-n}$" in the following paragraph should be changed accordingly.Certainly understandable flub, though. Working with logarithms, it's easy to mix up minus sign vs. 1/n conversions.

 Nice catch, thank you. I'll edit that and credit your comments in the errata :)
