Algorithm mistake by stefy at the FP1
There are two statements labelled 6 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #2 20140114 21:04:41
Re: Algorithm mistake by stefy at the FP1Both 6's and number 7 will not work in practice. But the algorithm is clever. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20140114 21:20:45
Re: Algorithm mistake by stefy at the FP1Why not? Do you have your own algorithm? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #4 20140114 21:22:50
Re: Algorithm mistake by stefy at the FP1Although I use the rule of 3, I do know guys who firmly believe that you should hammer away until she capitulates.

Re: Algorithm mistake by stefy at the FP1Casually asking uses userimplemented subroutine.
