Personally, I really like Grimmett & Stirzaker's Probability. See if you can solve that, if it's too hard for you, use Feller.
And I recommend you don't read that garbage book that is Casella & Berger, but I can't suggest any non-measure theoretic alternatives either. I have heard some anons say good things about Georgii's, Stochastics, which does probability and statistics both.
[math]\displaystyle f \in C[0,\, 1] \land f \neq 0 \implies \exists\, x_{0} \in [0, 1]\, \exists\, \epsilon > 0\, \forall\, x \in [x - \epsilon, x + \epsilon]: \frac{f(x_{0})}{2} \leq f(x)

Does anyone of you have an idea how I could prove/disprove this?
I don't see why g is continuous. pls help
Firstly [math]x \in [x - \epsilon, x + \epsilon] [/math] is a tautology. I'm sure you meant [math]x \in [x_0 - \epsilon, x_0 + \epsilon] [/math] instead.
Either way consider a function that takes negative values like the constant function [math]f(x) = -1 [/math] as a simple counterexample.
[math]\displaystyle f \in C[0, 1]\, \land\, f \neq 0 \implies \exists\ x_{0} \in\, [0,\ 1]\, \exists\, \epsilon > 0\, \forall\, x \in [x_{0} - \epsilon, x_{0} + \epsilon] : \biggl|\frac{f(x_{0})}{2}\biggl| \leq |f(x)|[/math]

You're right. This is how it should have been. What about now?
all values of f are positive or 0, so you can ditch the absolute values. This is what interests me
>choose x_0 in [0, 1], such that f(x_0) >= f(x) for all x in [0, 1] (exists because of the Extreme value theorem)
>choose x_1 [0, 1], such that f(x_1) < f(x_0)
>define [math]\epsilon[/math] := |f(x_0) - f(x_1)|/2
>f is continuous, therefore
[math]\exists\, \delta > 0\, \forall x \in [0, 1]: |x_{0} - x | \leq \delta \implies |f(x_{0}) - f(x)| \leq \epsilon[/math]
>this delta is the epsilon you're searching for
In case the function f is a constant polynomial, you'll have to find another solution

How would you answer this question?
imo the problem is a lack of passion from math teachers. School math is taught in an incredibly boring way and this is because the teachers and the people who set the syllabus do not care about math. It is rare to find a math teacher with any further education in math. Students look up to and mimic their teachers, but now the teachers don't care and lazily memorized formulas and hate math themselves. If you want students that like math, find teachers that like math (mathematicians).
We want to show
[math]\forall\, x_{0} \in D^{n}\, \forall \epsilon > 0\, \exists\, \delta > 0\, \forall x \in D^n: |x_{0} - x| \leq \delta \implies |g(x_{0}) - g(x)| \leq \epsilon\ (1)[/math]

>f is continuous, i.e.
[math]\forall\, x_{0} \in D^{n}\, \forall \epsilon > 0\, \exists\, \delta > 0\, \forall x \in D^n: |x_{0} - x| \leq \delta \implies |f(x_{0}) - f(x)| \leq \epsilon[/math]
>choose a random x_0 and a random epsilon
>all x have to be contained in a delta-circle, since f is continuous
>all f(x) have to be contained in the epsilon-circle
>construct the tangents of these two inner circles, they will project onto the S^(n -1) outer circle
>the distance of the ends of this projection is the epsilon in (1); the delta in (1) is the delta we had used in the beginning
something like this, is how I would do it
I don't think teachers are fully to blame. Some students simply don't like math, because they have other interests. They hate math, because for them it's a subject that they have to put up with in order to get to things they have more interest in or talent for. I've witnessed it many times that people actually prefer the boring memorizing/number crunch part of math because it's easier and therefore they have to spend less time on it.
if I can't solve it after hours and I ran out of ideas on how to solve it, I look at the solution and go through it carefully
dude just literally compute it. parametrize the line a compute the intersection with x^2 + y^2 + 1 = 0.
but you should already the see that the result will be algebraic and therefore continuous.

i had an exam question which asked me to check if two matrices but i had a retard moment and forgot the core property of similar matrices and instead of checking if the trace/determinant/whatever were the same (which would have allowed me to say that they are NOT similar if they werent equal) here's what i did, can anyone tell me if it's correct anyway?

Let A and B be the two matrices
they are similar iff there exists an invertible matrix S such that [math]A=S^{-1}BS \\ SA=SS^{-1}BS\\SA=BS\\SA-BS=0\\S(A-B)=0[/math] at this point i multiply S by the matrix A-B and get the null matrix which isn't invertible which means that A and B are not similar.

I absolutely hate probability, can someone help me with two assignment questions?

"At a school there are 40% girls and 60% boys. Three quarters of the girls and half of the boys have a tablet. We randomly select a student and look at the event:

J = "the student is a girl" and N = "the student has a tablet"

a) Determine the probabilities P(N | J) and P(N).
b) Determine the probability P(J | N)."

And lastly, I've done the first part of this but the second question fucks me.

"On a pin code lock, we can see that the numbers 1, 3 and 4 are heavily worn, so we assume that the pins required are made up of those three numbers"

B) If the code has four digits: how many different 4-digit codes are there, that only
using the digits 1, 3 and 4? (NOTE: make sure you actually use all three of these digits!)
b) is 1/2.
10% are girls with no tablet
30% are boys with no tablet
30% are girls with tablet
30% are boys with tablet
We sum up the latter two categories to make 60%.
So P(J | N) = 30%/60% = 1/2

B) is 36.
We know that one of the numbers is used twice, and the other two once each. So that can be any one of the three numbers.
We then find the number of possible combinations given two of one number, and one each of two other numbers. That's 4!/2! = 12.
So the answer is 12*3 = 36
Matrices are not commutative
S(A-B) = SA-SB, this is not usually equal to SA-BS
Ahh now it makes sense.

In B), how do you calculate that it's "4!/2! = 12."
4! because of the 4 possible digits and..2! from... what?

12*3 is understandable, where the "3" is the number of digits, correct?
>2! from... what?
One of the numbers is duplicated, so it's actually 2!*1!*1!.
Do magnetron sputter chambers "burn" all the process gas, or do they passivly vent the excess gas into the atmosphere?
Thanks, anon.
I agree, I don't know about other countries, but here there we have a mathematical literacy subject from grades 10 to 12 for people who won't need real math later. I think this is a good idea. But the problem persists in the real math classes and even calc and linear algebra where the students /should/ care. Another problem is that students often approach the subjects with the single goal of getting good grades (or merely passing; equally useless), this again is something that got reinforced from a young age, but this is also a problem outside of math.

Good Morning /Sci/entists!

I am working on a long latex document. Somehow I introduced a compile error. I removed the new text I added, but still the error happens. What is the best way to debug latex? TexWorks isn't giving me much info and the console output may as well just say "lol nope".

Thank you /Sci/entists for reading my post.

Using a language I made is an easier task for me than using a language someone else made. It either does what I think it should do the way I think it should do it, or it gets changes until it does.

I guess I can try to make some kind of typesetter other than latex, since all I really need is a PDF with maids in the margins and also draw Maid Space like a 2d array of black and white pixels?

With latex I am just stealing from how matrices are printed, but changing the number to square or blacksquare. I think it looks nice.

I don't know if I can make latex draw it like it is drawn in the attached image.

The solution was delete an aux file. I am going to return to using my Writing Computer now. I don't know what an aux file is, but it was mentioned in the TexWorks console and it kept referencing text I had already deleted and something about getting a runaway.

>tl;dr: If you get the same problem, deleting the aux file and restarting TexWorks fixed it.
>What is the best way to debug latex?
Same way you debug any language, really:
>read the logfile (it has file extension *.log)
>delete and rebuild all intermediate files (including the index/bibliography/whatever else you happen to have)
>isolate to a minimum reproducible example (ideally with at most one instance of \usepackage)
>google the error message (or check TeX SE)
>read the package documentation and (as a last resort) source code

I guess this is a good workflow to debug a program if you don't have any tools capable of actually debugging a program? Ideally you'd click by a line of text and it makes a breakpoint and you run a debugger and go in the breakpoint and see what is happening.

I guess Latex never implemented something like this because it is very old?

Either way it works now. Just had to delete some files. I think it was either caching or building something wrong in an aux file and deleting that made it happy.

I am not entirely sure what an aux file is but that is my guess and I don't have to care what it is now because document compiles again and looks how I want it.

What are your learning techniques? What are good books/resources for those two subjects?
I am desprerate here.
good books that provide an introduction to mathematical proofs?
There is a nice logic book called Symbolic Logic by Copi. Also there are nice YouTube series about it. Logic is fun and if you can only take one class I recommend that one because symbols look cool.

I would link the book but z-library died and I am not sure how to operate whatever replaced it. I have a paper copy of the 5th edition.
why do some bodily fluids have slimy texture while others are more fluid like pee?
Suppose that an oscillator, i.e., a mass attached to a spring, has a certain resonant frequency. Why does the resonant frequency becomes zero if the spring is cut? I would say that it should simply become a meaningless concept. I don't get why it couldn't be infinity rather than zero.
what's the theorem you proved yourself that you're the most proud of?
Terrible suggestion. Your book is written for high schoolers.
"how to think like a mathematician" by Kevin Houston is what I used. But it's a book not only about proofs but also other techniques that you'll likely need for doing university-level math. It doesn't provide solutions to the exercises, however

Does the Laplacian on a Riemannian manifold have no positive eigenvalues? If yes, this be shown with Hodge theory?

It can if the manifold isn't compact. [math]\Delta e^x = e^x[/math] in [math]\mathbb{R}[/math], for example.

Does every real-analytic function R --> R admit a holomorphic extension to some open neighborhood of the real line in the complex plane?
thanks anons
Can you lads tell when I'm posting with some alcohol in my blood?
No, no, my mistake, I should have written down closed instead of compact.
For compact manifolds with boundary you can have stuff like [math]e^x[/math] restricted to [math][0, 1][math]. Of course, if you're working with a class of functions that ensures the border integral still zeroes the result still works.
Yes, because the power expansion at the origin has infinite convergence radius, hence the function is actually entire.
>Yes, because the power expansion at the origin has infinite convergence radius, hence the function is actually entire.
No, nevermind, I'm wrong.

The result is still true because if the function is analytic you can power expand it at each point of the real line and the expansion needs to be well-defined on an open set around the expansion point. Then we can take a convex subset of that open set.

im too lazy to do this but for problem 1 at least, to find the expectation value you need to work out what the vector-matrix-vector multiplication [math]\ev{\hat{S}}{s,,m_s}[/math] is (but i think you probably know that already). do you know what $\ket{s,,m_s} = \ket{\frac12,,-\frac12}$ means? what's another name for this state that you might be more familiar with (hint: they are normalized eigenspinor of something)?

I *think* for this one you're supposed to use the spectral decomposition of the operator but its been a while since ive taken a QM course lol so gl
woah, goofy 4chan latex is goofy. rip packages. Let's try that expression again. first expression is
[math]\braket{s, m_s|\hat{S} | s, m_s}[/math]

almost, but your set builder notation is backwards; the part before the bar is the number that actually goes in the set, the part after the bar is the condition. just swap them around
Please use \mid next time anon-kun desu ne.
1) : write Sx and Sy in terms of the Sz basis, then sandwich the state you were given around that

2) : write Sy in the Sz basis, and do <X|Sy>

3) : perform the dot product in H to get the hamiltonian as a function of the i coordinate (why do they switch between i and x for this problem? retarded). convert this into the z-basis and then exponentiate this operator as U(t)=e^-iHt/hbar (you should know how to exponentiate matrices, no?). then perform <-|U(t)|+> where -, + are the spin-down and up eigenstates

4) : swap this B-field for that in problem 3, do the same steps but now it's easier to convert the hamiltonian from z-basis to y-basis since your initial state is in the y-eigenbasis
So why is movable type called movable? I thought the type moves somehow, but from what I see, someone has to arrange the type required for each page by hand anyway. So what's unmovable type?
>So what's unmovable type?
Carving a body of text into a single wooden block, for example, and then using that block to print. Movable refers to modular characters or words that can be rearranged to print a variety of documents.
Why would they do that? Were they fucking retarded? The le greatest invention of 15th century was figuring out that by carving only the letters, you could move them around and reuse them? What the fuck?
>Why would they do that?
Because it is an improvement over copying a document over and over by hand.
>was figuring out that by carving only the letters
not that, how. gutenberg's major innovation was not the concept of letters, it was figuring out how to cast metal ones

also, basically nobody could read in 12th century europe. there was even elitism that basically nobody SHOULD read. in that environment, when all you ever want to produce is one bible, type is questionably even worth it if you have it. demand only came about due to rising literacy rates

I'm designing an electronic submarine with its depth operating by ballast which displaces water with an electric motor.

Is my motor going to have to work harder at lower depths?
intuitively I think it would because of the pressure, but it seems like buoyant force should be working in my favor, and I'm just pushing up to displace water. I'm really hoping that's right because it would mean I can go way deeper.

Am I retarded?
Can anyone answer me a few questions about writing a paper?

If certain document states something and provides the reader with the sources used to make such statement, it would be correct for me to cite such statement as done by the author?
Might sound stupid as the autor of the paper is the one that made the statement, but I need certainty

If i happen to copy several sources that are making up the structure of another paper because my topic is similar enough, would that count as plagiarism?
I'm not taking their conclusions as mine, only their sources. Still, I wonder if I'd need to check the sources myself to get at least a new interpretation of the content

And, what should I actually be looking inside a scientific document in general?
Can I cite anything?
Or it should be correct to only cite the conclusions of a document?

Not my area, but it's needed to cite anything math-related such as the authors of formulas if I want to write let's say an statistics manual?
Besides the formulas that have an known author, if anything

Any more tips on how to actually write a document are welcome, as I have only found information on the basic structure and planning of scientific documents.
Not that anon, but it literally is a book for high schoolers, not to mention, outdated.
I've been thinking about Boy Girl paradox ("at least one" version). Following order of operations, you end up with 25%. Not following order gives 50%. Then there are those who are wrong and say it's 33%, by thinking BG and GB are different in an unordered example. Saying they're different means you care about the order, but they still insist on not following order to get the result.
So my question is, is there a name to this fallacy, which I could best describe as "applying ordered probabilities to unordered events"?

Also, don't bother trying to bait me into an argument about logic. It's not really relevant to the question anyway.
>Is my motor going to have to work harder at lower depths?
Is there a simple function [math]f: \mathbb{R}^2 \to \mathbb{Q}[/math] such that it returns any rational within a line segment denoted by two real numbers?
Obviously you can use the axiom of choice to take such a function but I was wondering if it exists even without the axiom of choice.
A simple function can only take on finitely many values.
I meant simple in the colloquial sense, as in possible to write down using elementary functions by hand.
Given two real numbers a and b, represent them both in binary and look for the first place where they differ (i.e. where a has digit 0 and b has digit 1). Then truncate up to that digit (i.e. get the common initial prefix of the binary representations of a and b) and you have a (dyadic) rational in betwen them.
This only works for pairs of reals where at least one is definable, not all pairs of reals.
Makes sense, thank you

Good Morning /Sci/entists!

>Why I am asking the question
I am writing more in my Maid Space book to make ideas sharper before making some of them into Java 18 code. Remaining work is finish writing and then add a lot of images of maids in all the margins and also make Maid Cards to distribute the software.

A lot of times, I use $\square$ to make a square □ and $\blacksquare$ to make a black square ■, because that is nicer than looking at 0 and 1 a lot of times if you want to see what a Coolkyousinnjya Maid Space looks like.

I need more colors for squares so I can have a higher amount of colors to use as squares and counting or uncounting with a Maid Space that has a higher radix than 2 can be done in a way that looks nice.

Worst case I can use other symbols like maybe a circle and a black circle or something but colors would be preferred for readability. I am trying to design the book to look like a Wolfy book so it can have high gloss paper and a hard cover and a lot of colors and images and look nice when it gets printed.

>The question
How can I get more colors for the squares in latex? I want a red one and a yellow one and a green one and probably other colors too.

There is not really anything special going on concerning order; people will just make up whatever additional assumptions they think are needed because the problem is too vague at the start.

Of course I'm aware that cosine is the derivative of sine, but why is the step after that, apparently utilizing the chain rule, happen?
Use the normal approximation
What is the probability any number of seats is filled? Is it fixed that 15% of spectators want drinks, or does every spectator decide after arriving, with a 15% chance of ordering one?

Assuming the obvious assumptions you did it right, if it is a problem for school look into 'the normal approximation to binomial'.
Also, you don't need to graph to integrate. In something like R, this is just qbinom(.9, 200, .15).

How does electricity work? I posted a bread on /diy/ but asking here too in case /sci/ knows more. I want to understand hot vs neutral wire, and why there are two ground wires to my pressure switch instead of just one. Full details of my question here: >>>/diy/2550788
how would you simulate stellar bodies interacting with each other the same way they do in reality?

Like if I want to simulate the moon orbiting the earth, I'd create 2 pairs of point + velocity vectors, position them and set an initial velocity, then each time step update position based on velocity, and update velocity based on current velocity and position relative to the other object(s) factoring in mass.

The problem here is that reliance on position and this 3rd person reference frame. obviously it doesn't exist in reality, same with orientation. There are no coordinates to position things at, and you can't move the moon in the '+x' direction. So how do I get around this? how do I have orientation-less, position-less points that can interact with each other to change their relative distance to each other? I can think of just storing distance from any point to every other point, but then you need to be able to manipulate that, like in an elliptical orbit, distance would be some function that oscillates between 380k km and 390k km, which seems simple, but then as soon as you add another point into the mix, it's not so simple any more
hello smart anons, thank you for helping dummy former neets like me get through college. Have a nice day.
You are right, all velocities are relative. However acceleration is not, and you can't have orbits without acceleration (gravity). The simulation each time step will calculation velocities (and hence position updates) based upon the total acceleration (force) acting on the body.
that anon in your thread gave that correct answer.
one ground is "input" and the other is "output". its just so you can provide ground to your pump.
as for the difference between live, ground, and neutral, live is the positive voltage, ground is zero volts, and neutral is the negative voltage. imagine if you stacked two AA batteries on top of each other. measuring the voltage from the middle node (where the two batteries meet) to the top would be 1.5v, and measuring from the bottom to the middle is also 1.5v, but measuring from the bottom to the top is 3v. thats basically whats happening when youre measuring 110v across live/neutral to ground, and 220v measuring from live to neutral. they're two sin waves that are 180 degrees out of phase (flipped over, basically), so you get double the voltage. three-phase power is also common, which would be a sin wave thats 120 degrees out of phase with live, which ends up with [math]110\sqrt{3}[/math] volts, which is like 170 or something.
>The simulation each time step will calculation velocities (and hence position updates) based upon the total acceleration (force) acting on the body.
how would it do that though? Like if I'm thinking of 2 points "orbiting" each other, from the perspective of each point, there is no motion at all, they are both perfectly still in relation to each other and are not moving closer despite the mass they have that should be pulling them closer. (I'm assuming orbits still make sense with points, real stellar bodies are composed of many points so an orbiting body grows closer and further away from each of those instead, maybe I can't make this assumption however?)

you also can't store velocities between time steps since it's not a real property. I suppose maybe you could infer it? if the distance equation doesn't change despite the acceleration, then there must be some movement between the 2 points, and I guess the direction of that movement is irrelevant until you insert another point to 'triangulate' the movement

also aside, but I'm guessing the concept of movement doesn't exist in a single point system (does time even exist in such a system???)
> as for the difference between live, ground, and neutral, live is the positive voltage, ground is zero volts, and neutral is the negative voltage.
This is nonsense. Neutral and ground are at roughly the same potential (they're connected together at the main board). The difference is that neutral carries the return current, ground isn't supposed to carry any current. Any exposed metal (e.g. casing) is supposed to be connected to ground so that if any live part comes into contact with exposed metal, it trips a fuse or breaker (but if there's a RCD, that will trip first).
i dont think thats true. its common to ground casing for that reason, and ground usually isnt supposed to carry any current, but in the US (i suspect youre a bong since you called them RCDs instead of GFCIs) you arent gonna trip any breaker or blow a fuse if you run current to ground. OP said it himself (in the other thread):
>Touching one of the leads to the input neutral and the other to ground or output also gave me 110V.
if you have a washing machine power outlet that you can probe youre welcome to go see this for yourself. in regular power outlets, live and neutral are identical.
> Like if I'm thinking of 2 points "orbiting" each other, from the perspective of each point, there is no motion at all,
Incorrect. The motion is the same as one point orbiting the other. The distance doesn't change, the direction does.
> you also can't store velocities between time steps since it's not a real property.
Also incorrect.

Essentially, you need to choose a coordinate system. The choice of coordinate system doesn't matter, as the laws of physics are invariant under change of basis. But you need to parameterise the space.

Thank you for telling me. This worked and I can now make red square. I am going to look for documentation to xcolor to see what other colors I can make my squares have.
Thank you.
As I also said in the other thread, I am still confused on ground in the pressure switch setup. It is my understanding that the ground wires are so that if there is a fault causing electricity to flow into the pressure switch's metal body, the ground wires will carry it into the ground so that if a person happens to be touching the switch's metal body, they don't get as much electriciy flowing through them. In which case why does it need one ground wire going to the panel and one to the pump when they're both just for safety at the switch? Or am I completely wrong about them being for safety right at the switch?
And regarding hot vs neutral, both are carrying current in the same direction (from my panel to my switch) correct? I don't fully get what the difference is between "positive" and "negative" voltage.
Even with magnetic polarity I don't really get it, is it just arbitrary what we have always defined as "positive" vs "negative"?
> you arent gonna trip any breaker or blow a fuse if you run current to ground.
Shorting neutral to ground won't blow a fuse (but will trip a RCD). Shorting live to ground will blow a fuse for the same reason shorting live to neutral will.

> OP said it himself (in the other thread):
> > Touching one of the leads to the input neutral and the other to ground or output also gave me 110V.
That's not neutral. In the US, a 240V appliance has two live ("hot") wires (which are 180° out of phase) and no neutral. Neutral is (nominally) at ground potential, although it might differ by a volt or so due to the neutral current and Ohm's law.
>That seems appropriate for someone with no previous exposure to the topic?
How so? It doesn't cover a ton of material in the undergrad curriculum.
Logic is an area that changed a lot in the past 50 years. Reading a book that doesn't include, let alone comment on these changes, is stupid, specifically when taking a logic course in the 21st century.
Better to just read a modern book like Ebbinghaus, you know, something actual to-be-logicians read. There even is the saying "back to Ebbinghaus".
Don't strawman me, you racist retard. Not to mention, Ebbinghaus is 10 bucks new. For Copi's book you can only find more expensive, used copies.
>In the US, a 240V appliance has two live ("hot") wires (which are 180° out of phase) and no neutral.
i have never heard that nomenclature before.
no way to do it without coordinates? Whole reason I was trying to do this is because reality doesn't have coordinates. where would you even align them? a point has no concept of up or down

>Incorrect. The motion is the same as one point orbiting the other. The distance doesn't change, the direction does.
I don't really get this. like if I consider a scenario of only 2 particles in the entire universe orbiting each other, the only thing they observe about the other is mass (which results in an acceleration towards) and the distance to (which determines how strong the effect of the mass is). They don't have orientation themselves so they can't position the other particle relative to anything on themselves, and there is no external reference frame to say that an orbit is occurring. the particles view of the universe is that there is another mass pulling on it and despite that it doesn't not get any closer. this is enough info to say one or both of them is "moving" but no direction can be established. would you just have a directionless velocity or something instead? I don't really get it
Neutral is called "neutral" for a reason. If you touch it and it hurts, it's live/hot, not neutral. That's still true if the other wire is also live/hot.
> Whole reason I was trying to do this is because reality doesn't have coordinates.
Reality doesn't need coordinates; a position ... "is what it is". If you want to model the system numerically, you're going to need coordinates. The choice of basis is completely arbitrary, but you do need to choose one.

> They don't have orientation themselves
Are you quite sure about that? If you draw a diagram where particles are modelled as spheres, then their orientation won't show up in the diagram. But choosing to ignore orientation isn't the same thing as not having one.
> They don't have orientation themselves so they can't position the other particle relative to anything
What has orientation got to do with the direction they feel a gravity acting on them?

> there is no external reference frame to say that an orbit is occurring
Not true. An orbit means their velocity vector is changing, which means there is acceleration. If they experience acceleration they feel a force. This is precisely what centripetal force is.
>Are you quite sure about that? If you draw a diagram where particles are modelled as spheres
but I'm modeling them as points, dimensionless points. doesn't the fact that they are dimensionless preclude them from having orientation? orientation after all must be relative to something. a sphere has many points on it's surface and interior, it takes up space and the points inside and on the surface exist and different positions in space so it can be oriented. but a point has nothing to be relative to

>An orbit means their velocity vector is changing
A velocity vector you can't have without some sort of orientation to align it to, and some coordinate system to set it in. the crux of my problem

Valve that only lets thing go from one direction to the other, but if you put too much pressure in the reverse it breaks.
> a sphere has many points on it's surface and interior
That's why all calculations use centre of mass for simplicity. No matter the shape of a body you can perform all calculations as if all the mass was concentrated at a single point. They are mathematically provable to be equivalent.

> you can't have without some sort of orientation to align it to
Not true. The vector still exists, a coordination system is only used to describe it.

Is there empty space inside water?

Like, if I mix a teaspoon of sugar or salt into a cup of water, does the volume of the water increase exactly as much as the volume of the salt/sugar added?

Why/why not?
Dissolving is the acting of breaking apart the sugar / salt crystals so you're left with disassociated molecules. The mass will increase and I'd normally expect the volume to fractionally increase too. But it's water and water is fucking weird. So if under certain conditions and concentrations of the soluble the volume actually went down I honestly wouldn't be surprised.
>does the volume of the water increase exactly as much as the volume of the salt/sugar added
no. solid sugar, liquid water, and dissolved sugar (coated in water molecules) all have significantly different densities, the overall volume is not preserved.
So if I dump a cup of sugar/salt in a tub of water and stir. The water volume does not increase by one cup?

Sorry kinda difficult to understand what you said. Hence I gotta ask again
right. also remember sugar crystals have empty space between them, so it's not really a cup to begin with.
what if I use melted Sugar?

A, it's closer to the pivot point so it's less likely to turn the front of the boat towards the canal bank.
Where is the pivot point, approximately in the center of the boat? I don't get this, why would the boat turn if there is no flow, and you are just pulling the boat by the bow? Is it because it is less "stable" in that case? So the most stable tow point would be right in the center of the boat? These people are doing it wrong? That's how I would do it too.

I think you misunderstood the question. When people pull boats along a canal they do it from the path (it's why it's on the picture). There's no tug boat in that scenario. So naturally the rope will be at an angle and hence have a force component towards the canal bank.

when deriving the Euler-Lagrange equation we make use of a function [math] \bar y(x) = y(x) + \varepsilon\eta(x) [/math]. Should [math]y[/math] and [math]\eta[/math] be of class C2?
If you are using two ropes that is the best configuration since the torque at the front and back should hopefully cancel.
What do you mean exactly by class C2?
the second derivative exists and is continuous
That is the normal assumption and simplifies the derivation of the equation but I believe it's not a requirement. Though I can't say I've ever seen it derived any other way. Maybe ask /mg/
brainlet here.

could a higher dimensional person, were such a thing to exist, sidestep "slices" of the 3rd dimension?

what i mean by this is that effectively a 3 dimensional person or object can sidestep any 2 dimensional plane by moving in an axis perpendicular to the 2 dimensional planes X and Y. can a hypothetical 4th dimensional or higher person or object essentially just move away at a further perpendicular angle to sidestep a particular slice of 3rd dimension?

and i suppose somewhat tangentially, given that any 3D space is essentially made up of an infinite number of 2 dimensional planes, that is, you can move anywhere along the Z axis of a thing and get any number of X and Y planes, could a 4th or higher dimension contain a similar infinite number of slices of 3rd dimensions, geometrically speaking?

i am a laymen, im probably not using proper terminology here, and frankly i dont know if i am asking a question or if i just posted 2 paragraphs of garbledy guck, but i appreciate your patience in reading it.

the answer is yes to all your questions.

a higher dimensional person can move along an axis that doesn't exist to a lower one and "jump" locations. e.g. put your finger onto a 2D plane, lift it, and then place it somewhere else. also a 3d object moving though a 2D plane would look like a series of slices to those 2D observers. it's exactly the same when you go to 4D / 3D
Not really.
But usually the Lagrangian forces [math]q[/math] to be C^2 so you can calculate [math]\dfrac{d}{dt} \dfrac{\partial L}{\partial \dot{q}}[/math], in which case you want everything to be [math]C^2[/math]
Can you induce nuclear subcriticality at the molecular level?

My understanding of nuclear reactors is poor, but to my knowledge you can put fissile material in a situation where radiation is reflected back into the material. This promotes further fission, allowing you to "extract" more energy on demand.

Is it theoretically possible to do this on a molecular level, say by pushing 2 atoms of uranium close together? Or perhaps a uranium atom against a tungsten atom or whatever serves as a reflector? The reason I ask is that this seems like the most plausible mechanism for bacteria to develop radiotrophy, in a way that doesn't just leech off nuclear waste but actively cleans it.
> do this on a molecular level, say by pushing 2 atoms of uranium close together?
You are essentially describing cold fusion but most scientists say that isn't possible.

Good morning /sci/entists!

>Why I am asking a question
I am working on my book more today. Yesterday a nice anon told me how to make colored boxes.

I used bmatrix to put them all into a matrix shape. The end result looks like a matrix, except change digits to colored squares.

This works nicely and looks good for small Maid Spaces. I was able to draw a 10 by 10 Maid Space with radix 10 and it looks nice because of the colored squares.

However, when I try a bigger one like using a 25 by 25 matrix then compilation fails with errors from bmatrix being too big to typeset. 10 by 10 is fine, so my workaround is just use a smaller one.

I think going from counting in a small Maid Space to suddenly showing normal sized PNG images of a Maid Space is too jarring and I want to be able to draw some with more cells.

Is there a way to adjust the spacing between the squares in a bmatrix to be smaller? I want both the height and width of the whitespace around a square to be reduced so more squares can get drawn in the same page space.

Thank you /sci/entists for reading my post.

Also, I figured out how to put a subscript number after the close bracket of a bmatrix. It is in the bottom right corner. That has the radix. I also want to include the height and width in this notation preferably as a superscript number at the upper left and upper right corners of the bmatrix respectively. Also I want to know how to put a subscript number in the bottom left too. Probably that one will have the number of dimensions of the Maid Space. I want this because I realized I can draw a 3D Maid Space as a series of images on a 2d Maid Space.

Maybe I also need some concept of a Maid Frame Counter or something. I don't know. If I get stuck I will ask on a board or just make things up until my Computer Program works.

Now every corner has information you need so you have to look at all the corners.

This is a good day for doing some Computer Science.

Very stupid question, please be gentle. I even LaTex'd it for your convenience.

Line 3 to 4 is nonsense, you just go [math]\sqrt{a^2} = a[/math]
Saved others a click:

Say I wish to solve the inequality [math]|x-1| + |x+1| < 2[/math]. Now, we can make use of the alternative expression for absolute values: [math]|a| = \sqrt{a^2}[/math], and what follows is:

[eqn]|x-1| + |x+1| < 2\\
\sqrt{(x-1)^2} + \sqrt{(x+1)^2} < 2\\
(x-1)^2 + 2\sqrt{(x-1)^2}\sqrt{(x+1)^2} + (x+1)^2 < 4\\
(x-1)^2 + 2(x-1)(x+1) + (x+1)^2 < 4\\
[x^2-2x+1] + 2[x^2-1] + [x^2+2x+1] <4\\
4x^2 < 4[/eqn]

which reduces to:

[eqn](x-1)(x+1) < 0[/eqn]

which is true for [math]x \in (-1,1)[/math], but clearly it does not satisfy the original question, since the LH side of the inequality above is equal to 2 in this select part of the domain (and it can easily be shown that the statement is altogether false by taking cases).

My question is: where (and why) exactly does the algebra fail?

You don't know LaTeX works on this board?
you still need a free neutron to start the process
you'd also need a way of expending enough energy to get the atoms close enough together
What do you mean? Your answer is correct: [math]x^2 < 1[/math], so x = (-1,1)

Let E be the field of algebraic complex numbers, and F the field of algebraic real numbers. ("Algebraic" meaning, over the rationals.)

Then does F(i) = E ?
Algebraic numbers are closed under conjugation, so they're closed under taking the real part and the imaginary part.
Ah got it, thanks
whats an example of a real function f for which the following is true:
-f'(x)>=0 on the interval [-a,a], a=/=0
-f''(x)>=0 on the interval [-a,a], a=/=0
-newtons method doesnt converge starting from some b in [-a,a]

honestly, i cant even figure out a function that satisfies the first 3
>-f'(x)>=0 on the interval [-a,a], a=/=0
>-f''(x)>=0 on the interval [-a,a], a=/=0
sorry, these inequalities should be strict i.e. > (1st and 2nd derivatives are positive on this interval, not just non-negative)
Just exclude zero?
let x be in [0,1)
then [math]|x-1|+|x+1|=1-x+1+x=2[/math]
similarly, let x be in (-1,0]
then [math]|x-1|+|x+1|=1+x+1-x=2[/math]
strict inequality does not hold for anything on the entire interval

I refuse to believe that its dangerous to stand under a tree when its lightninging out.

The electricity should go through the tree to the ground. Why would it need to go through you when its already in the tree?

Is there even actual proof this is dangerous?
Lightning doesn't have to hit the tree exactly,
just to the side...and especially where the gathered
ions tell the lightning where to hit. Also, the tree
could either explode into pieces upon striking or
catch on fire.

If anything, find some other shelter that could
provide adequate protection.

[math]x^2 + x[/math]

Basically, you want to do the following:
- [math]f'(x) = 0[/math] for [math]x \in (- \infty, b][/math], where [math]b < - a[/math]
- the first step, starting from [math]a[/math], has a large enough differential to shoot you to [math](- \infty, b][/math]

What I'd do in your case is look at [math]f(x) = e^{x^2} - c[/math] for [math]x \geq 0[/math] and [math]f(x) = -c[/math] for [math]x < 0[/math].
What do I use this board for? I'm not that into the "sciences" Americans use to refer to when they say "sciences", those being the STEM ones. But where do I go with political science, social sciences, psychology, sexual sciences, etc. Does this also belong here since I want science-founded discussions, does this go to /his/ or to /lit/ if I'm referring to a specific book I've just read?
[math]\Phi := \{f \in C^{1}[0,\, 1] \mid |f(0)| \leq 1 \land ||f||_{\infty} \leq 1\}[/math]

I want to show that this set of functions is bounded. Is it enough to explicitly state the supremum and infimum

\sup \Phi &= [f: [0,\, 1] \ni x \mapsto x + 1 \in \mathbb{R}],\\
\inf \Phi &= [f: [0,\, 1] \ni x \mapsto -x - 1 \in \mathbb{R}]?
All of these topics belong here.
I'm assuming the inf-norm bound was supposed to be on the derivative.

Use mean value.
not quite, Phi should have been defined like this
\Phi := \{f \in C^{1}[0,\, 1] \mid |f(0)| \leq 1 \land ||f'||_{\infty} \leq 1\}
Sorry for the inconvenience. How about now?

Let's say I have a large set of matrices. A particular matrix M is an n x m matrix. I'd like to estimate the function f, whose domain is R^m. I can assume that [math]f(x) = \sum_{i=1}^{m} f_i(x_i)[/math] and that [math]f_i(0) = 0[/math] for any i. For each matrix M, I can direcrly observe the value [math]F(M) = \sum_{i} f(M_i)[/math] where M_i is the ith row of the matrix. Given an unseen matrix X along with [math]\sum_{i} f(X_i)[/math], I'd like to predict f(X_i) for each row of X. I first thought it was impossible, but I thought about this example - if I have two matrices A and B that are identical (or at least very similar) except at one element [math]A_{ij} \neq B_{ij}[/math], then [math]F(A) - F(B) = f_j(A_{ij}) - f_j(B_{ij})[/math]. If [math]A_{ij}[/math] or [math]B_{ij}[/math] happen to be 0, then I know the value of [math]f_j[/math] at the nonzero one. Realistically, I doubt there are many instances of matrix pairs that are equal except for just one element, but there might be a good amount of pairs that are very similar. This makes me think there is some way to approximate f with some statistical model and smart math. Is there such a way?
Can isolated systems truly ever exist in the real world?
I know that every irrational has a sequence of rationals approaching it, but can we pick a series of rationals that monotonically increase to any irrational?
No, but you can make them isolated enough to be fit for purpose.
let us sing a prayer for calc chad
if by "isolated" you mean "closed", then the universe is by definition an isolated system.
Not true since the universe is expanding.
i dont see how that refutes my claim
That doesn't change anything.
Because energy is no longer conserved.
first google link
>The question about energy conservation in an expanding Universe is one instance of how our knowledge of modern physics start to get challenged as we explore more extreme environments and distances. And the answer to this question is: there is no violation of energy conservation during expansion of the Universe.
second google link
> Energy isn’t conserved; it changes because spacetime does.
third google link
>Some people claim incorrectly that energy is not conserved in an expanding universe because space-time is not static. The law of Energy conservation is derived from Noether's theorem when the dynamical equations are unchanged with time. These people confuse the invariance of the equations with the invariance of the solution. Space-time changes but the equations obeyed by the expanding universe do not change. Space-time cannot be treated as a background, its dynamics must be included when deriving the enrgy equations via Noether's theorem. This leads to the equations given above which show that energy is indeed conserved.

I have a few questions about different types of amphetamine salts. I really dislike methamphetamine but enjoy dextroamphetamine because it makes me get up and do stuff. Why is this? Just the difference between pharmaceuticals and street drugs? Or is it chemical structure?
I have been diagnosed with Schizophrenia (Paranoid) as early as 18 years old. At times, occasional methamphetamine use made me super paranoid, recklessly impulsive, as well as have some delusions and confabulations. But I've been taking some doses of dextroamphetamine (25mg a day across 5-10 mg doses). It has given me a great sense of productivity and made me actually live my room, clean the kitchen and my room, as well as make me generally more active. I won't take it often because I know it's highly addictive, and it's expensive to get without a prescription, where psychiatrists won't usually give it to schizophrenics anyway.
I guess the dosages would affect me differently, too, but I never took meth too frequently nor too much (although I usually smoked or drank it alcohol).
Pill form. I have experienced significant appetite suppression, increased concentration, some considerable irritation when reading something I disagree with, as well as more energy and less fatigue (I walked and brought 17 hardback books in two bags back to the library, which I might have found too tiring usually as someone with avolition). I had increased sexual pleasure but not really as much horniness. I did take it first with LSD so it might have been impacted by that, but it generally made me love music more, as well as feel energised. Sadly, it did cause me to go back into insomnia, though I was able to sleep 8+ hours recently once I came down.
Horniness to the point of being uncomfortable, making up memories and weird shit, intrusive thoughts, general psychotic symptoms, some euphoria but also a lot of disinhibition, agitation.
Good Morning /Sci/entists.

>What I am doing
I am working on the Maid Space book more. I am typesetting a Maid Space by using bmatrix.

Doing this

\square & \square \\
\square & \square
\end{bmatrix}_{2}^{(2, 2)}$

This would make a 2 by 2 Coolkyousinnjya Maid Space Zero with the subscript 2 in the right corner to let you know it is radix 2 and the (2, 2) superscripted into the top to tell you it has height 2 and width 2.

How do I put a subscript and superscript number on the left corners of bmatrix?

>Why I want this
I was looking in the Wolfy book about her triangle experiments. She had one-dimension dot-lines and made up rules that cause the dots to change position or increase or decrease the number of dots on the dot-line.

If you get a dot-line and apply a rule to it and get a new dot-line and do that a lot of times, and you put the dot-lines on top of eachother, then you end up with a 2D drawing that shows that actually those dots were drawing triangles, but you can't see the triangles until you put all the lines together and draw it in time order.

Similarly I figured out I can do the same trick with a 2D Maid Space and can represent a 3D one as a lot of 2D ones. If you want to imagine this mentally think about how a flip-book animation works.

I want to put the Maid Frame Count at the top left of of the bmatrix. I will figure out something else to put in the bottom left so every corner gets a number and it makes it look cool.

>bonus question
What looks the coolest if you fill it with colored squares and put numbers on all the corners? matrix, pmatrix, bmatrix, vmatrix or Vmatrix?

Thank you /sci/entists for reading my post.

Reread the Tensor example. I was using it wrong. Tensor was the answer. Tensor will protect you from the terrible secret of Space. Space has a terrible power. Do you have stairs in your house?

Please go stand by the stairs.

Now it looks how I want and I just have to figure out what goes in the bottom left corner.

I might change it where upper left has Current Maid Frame Count and lower left has Total Number of Frames and upper right has coordinates and lower right has radix. That way it has everything needed to tell you got all the information and you can see how to read it and how to order it and look more at the squares for patterns of squares that have data in a big number.

Then I can have Four Corner Maid Frame Maid Address Notation for Maid Space. Then nobody can ever tell me a maid isn't related to science or math ever again and I can go in a science meeting and somebody will let me talk with PowerPoint and I get a science lunch where it is a white box that has a turkey sandwich, a random Lay's product, and a random can of soda. Sometimes a charcuterie board with little cheese cubes and some kind of pepperoni. I am going eat that lunch and look at birds and use my computer outside and give the birds some of whatever the Lay's product as long as it isn't flamin' hot.

Then later I get a science foundation in new mexico and my assistant has huge boobs and wears a maid dress and dra/g/on horns at all times. Her job is being a maid who follows me around and takes notes when people tell me things so I don't have to do it and later I know what was said because the maid wrote it down for me. Her other job duty is use the coffee machine to make coffee. She also helps you find where things are in large buildings because navigating a building is a confusing task and it is easy to get stuck in a loop where you keep arriving at the same waterfountain somehow or the stairs didn't get changes when you used them. Every scientist will have a maid who does this.

Is Yachie a turtle? If not, why does her tail come out of the back of her head?
For L&L, I like it. If you already know some physics, it is a good second course.
Yes, 0D is a point. In this sense, for the geometry of an object, negative dimensions obviously do not exist. A different definition could be generalized to negative dimensions, but you won't draw a box in -2D.

Thank you for telling me. The way I was imagining it a 0 dimension Maid Space has one digit. If you give them an index for time with the Maid Frame Counter then you can put the 0 dimension Maid Spaces next to eachother based on that time order and get a Maid Time Line. Then you can put all the Maid Time Lines together and get a Maid Time Rectangle. Then you can put all the Maid Time Rectangles together and get a Maid Time Cube.

I don't know what shape you get when you put all the Maid Time Cubes together, but it can I guess be thought of as a 3D Maid Space that changes with time?

I don't know even how to consider more than four because somehow time has to have a shape first and I don't know how even to consider dimensions bigger than four.

I couldn't really tell it is supposed to be a shell because the color scheme for the tail to too similar.

There also aren't many Yachies I have. I didn't know this character existed but someone made a thread with a huge boobs Yachie who sort of resembled Tohru, and Touhou was in the file name so I think maybe Yachie is the big titty dra/g/on maid I am hoping for. Upon closer inspection, I discovered that I can find Maid Yachie or huge boobs Yachie, but not both at the same time. Also there are only a very small amount of Yachie drawing where she has a maid dress.

Thank you for sharing videos.

Thank you for telling me. If Yachie has a dragon tail and horn then I think she qualifies as a dra/g/on maid.

short of matching it to a known spectrum like a fingerprint, I don't think you can reasonably tell. It's an alkyl alcohol, that's it.

Then there is a clusterfuck going on somewhere in 1.5 ppm

does anyone know how I might contextualize reagent testing in a general like math way?

for example I want to write a program where you input a series of test result colors (of any length, and these results would probably be a tuple with the test used- [color,test]) and output a list of possible substances.

optionally too, an easy way, if the output list is >1, for it to project from there all possible [color,test] series that would result in the most specific substance possibilities.
(so like if an output list is A,B,C,D and substances C and D are not differentiable with any testing, it would give something like { [test1,orange],[test2,blue],A; [test1,orange],[test2,blue],[test3,blue],B; [test4,red],C,D } )

I'm using the word series, but I guess order doesn't matter right. I don't remember much of this kind of thing.
