Whats up bros. I'm a student of mechanical enginnering and the math and algebra we are learning is based on vector calculus and linear algebra.
What happens is that I feel like calculus is not as rigurous as I'd like. I want to understand clearly and completely what is a function, what are spaces, etc. like a generalization of them but I don't want to go full math virgin schizo, I want to learn a level below that.
In other words, I'd like a book or some books that could give me the big picture of vector calculus, lineal algebra, spaces and how they are all connected. I thought "Understanding Analysis" by Abbot could be good but it is not what I'm looking for or at least it doesn't look like... could be a bit of retardation of my part though.
Anyways bros, please help and thanks in advance.

Here's the deal: by the time you finish your mathematics requirements, you will be informed (correctly, I might add) that you finally know enough basic math to do moderately interesting things with it. What you're asking for is material that goes pretty well beyond multivariable calc and differential equations.

I also recommend Sheldon Axler linear algebra done right
And it doesn’t hurt to look up errata for every book you read, to avoid a few head scratches.

"Modeling and IPC Control of Interactive Mechanical Systems - A Coordinate-Free Approach," has a ~30 page primer in the appendix on all the math REAL mechanical engineers should know going from basic logic to things like lie algebra/manifolds. As a mechanical engineer I can tell you those 30 pages are hell. I've barely made it through page 10(I got filtered by tensors). Try it. You will probably need to look up more stuff as you go along.

"Modern" psychiatry is the invention of Freud, who is unironically a conman. It took decades for psychiatry to "defreudanize" and in fact the process is still ongoing. Psychiatry is a field where, since scientific standards are lax, bad science drives out good science. It's much easier for a bad actor (or group of actors) to publish a series of scientific unsound, but juicy, papers than it is for a good actor to publish a scientifically sound paper containing more pedestrian results. The effect is that the field tends to be dominated by actual sociopaths who forge their way into positions of power and academic prestige. I can make actual examples if anybody is interested. Even if there are plenty of good people in the field, they have to live in this kind of environment, and the most midwitty ones do not even realize it. It's a fucking shitshow.

Psychology is a much more serious field since it recognizes its own limits. Psychologists try to understand the mind and its patterns, not the brain. They dont attempt to cure anything, just to understand. This is easy as collecting data on behaviors and finding statistical correlations.

is there a book somewhere in between the brute force dry problems of stewart's calc and the heavy proofs of spivak's calc?
>>
>>14492565
Yeah
Hubbard&Hubbard's book on Vector Calc and Differential Forms is exactly between a more rigorous and formal book like Spivak's Calculus on Manifolds and something much more utilitarian and applied like whatever the fuck engineers and cstards use for multivariable calculus. The book briefly reviews large parts of single variable calculus while teaching the reader (nearly) the entirety of linear algebra, basic optimization including quadratic forms, the basics of classical differential geometry, differential forms, all of multi/vector calc in extreme detail, basics of metric spaces and some rigorous real analysis here and there, quite a good look at the mathematical formulation of Electrodynamics through differential forms, smattering of probability, and some other varied pure and applied applications. Ted Shifrin has a book that almost exactly mirrors the H&H book that takes a similar approach with even more emphasis on geometry and an extremely thorough dissection of linear algebra from the pure and applied view. You could conceivably use both texts together and substitute a traditional text on lin alg with those books. If you need something more abstract you're moving into the realm of global analysis, diff geo, diff topology, abstract algebra etc. and you won't be able to escape heavy formalism at that point.

if 0 to the 0 equals one that means that

0 to the 0 plus 0 to the 0 equals 2

Meaning that

0 to the 0 plus 0 to the 0 times 0 to the 0 plus 0 to the 0 equals 4

Now my question is, how can I use that to take zero apples and get 4 apples?

It got published in a real Astrophysics journal. It says 50% of the universe is controlled by aliens.

Could be true but I refuse to "believe" any model about the prevalence of aliens before
1. abiogenesis is properly explained and its likelihood known
2. the evolutionary pathway from single-celled organisms to spacefaring species is understood and its likelihood known

Give me probabilities (that are not guesses) for these two things and I'll consider this theory

I ran that model on the Roman empire, but didn't get your result.

The universe is larger than Earth so you get more than one Roman Empire and a couple of them per trillion or so keep going.

Kind of a shitty example since tons of their ancestors exist to this day and the modern civilization that dominates Earth is filled with their architecture, philosophy, language, customs, etc. The only thing that stopped was us calling civilization "The Roman Empire."

In the first example we see a misleading claim, the statistic was created because the media and government overemphasize crimes against blacks while routinely ignoring hate crimes against whites. Darrell Brooks isn't being charged with a hate crime.

Unobtanium is a real word, though more of a joke than anything, referring to any material that would be the perfect solution to an engineering problem in all respects, except that it either does not exist or is near-impossible to get.

Yeah the smurf war movie popularised the word but there's a lot of things you could call an unobtanium. Probably the most notable example is room temperature superconductors. If we had access to such a material in high quantity we could majorly increase the efficiency of almost everything that uses electricity and make nuclear fusion more viable. But we don't, so we can't.
