The problem of the size of the dyadic digit representations swelling during the course of a computation (see section 7.1 can be a serious problem. Experimentation shows that if we were to perform a series of computations involving dyadic stream multiplication such as computing iterations of the logistic map, for example, the problem can cause calculation to slow down very quickly. It is easy to see why by examining the first digit of output when computing ten iterations of the logistic map with the input , which is the following large number.

This problem is one of the reasons the dyadic stream representation is not the main representation used by the calculator.
