Those are some pretty darn tolerant tissues... 8.7 * 10^256 bar is a
rather impressive amount. Significantly more than the weight of the
universe per square milimeter...?

I would make a random guess and say "that's wrong".

I'm pretty sure that there is an overflow somewhere with input
parameters this large - and the loop just never finishes (which is
another reason why the analytical approach instead of the iterative
might be better ;-) )
