comment comparing bit lengths of binary numbers
thanks! It looks correct, I'll accept as soon as I have a chance to read more carefully. (Proofs have always eluded me. :/ )

comment comparing bit lengths of binary numbers
I didn't say I would get random results, but I couldn't find a counterexample.

comment Understanding Primitive Polynomials in GF(2)?
thanks for the reference! I like Saxena & McCluskey's algorithm for finding primitive polynomials.

comment Extended Euclidean Algorithm in bit representation problem
Thanks for mentioning Blankinship's algorithm! I'd never heard of it, but was able to implement it in Python for GF2 very easily.

comment generating a random periodic function with bounded amplitude and bounded fourier coefficients
re: randomly generating + scaling -- that's about what I thought of, but it skews the resulting probability distribution of the coefficients.

comment generating a random periodic function with bounded amplitude and bounded fourier coefficients
yes, a computational sense, let me elaborate; that's too loose of a bound.

comment convolution square root of uniform distribution
hmm, upon further reflection it seems like there is no such pdf; the convolution of f(x) with itself would always have a maximum when it lines up.

comment numerical integration for N datapoints
Huh, never heard of Romberg integration before, thanks... What if h is fixed (i.e. velocity measurements made once every N milliseconds) rather than something that can be increased adaptively?

comment numerical integration for N datapoints
Well, I understand that part when N is small (I guess it's kind of like windowing functions in FFTs), but not when N is large.
