 Sep16 awarded Teacher Jul2 awarded Curious Feb20 answered Calculate distance in 3D space Jan7 comment How do I convince someone that $1+1=2$ may not necessarily be true? Note that while 1 + 1 = 2 can be false if you use different axioms, 1 + 1 = 2 is not itself an axiom. So using the Peano Axioms (which are usually implied unless otherwise stated), 1 + 1 = 2 can only be true since it necessarily follows from the axioms. Dec17 accepted Which real numbers have two representations? Dec17 comment Which real numbers have two representations? Here 'terminates' refers to the same kind of reals I was referring to as ending with 0000... right? Dec17 awarded Commentator Dec17 comment Which real numbers have two representations? Yeah, in decimal base. Dec17 comment Refuting the Anti-Cantor Cranks I think this actually shows that before applying Cantor's argument to any list, you need to make it at least base 4 and then use two numbers in the middle (such as 4 and 5 in base 10) to generate the anti-diagonal. Dec17 asked Which real numbers have two representations? Dec17 comment Refuting the Anti-Cantor Cranks Would downvoters mind providing a proof that this argument is wrong instead? As far as I understand, Cantor's argument should work in any base, with any arbitrary infinite list of reals. Dec4 comment Random range that iteratively multiplied by itself tends to 1 So this is why I was having so much trouble trying to figure out myself why it works... Dec4 accepted Random range that iteratively multiplied by itself tends to 1 Dec4 accepted Simple or maybe not so simple probabilistic question Dec4 asked Random range that iteratively multiplied by itself tends to 1 Apr5 awarded Notable Question Mar31 awarded Popular Question Dec22 awarded Autobiographer Apr28 comment Simple or maybe not so simple probabilistic question Your reading is perfectly right. I'll check that article. Hope I can manage to plug it with your explanation here. Apr28 comment Simple or maybe not so simple probabilistic question well is 1000 per chromosome and I might have thousands of chromosomes. This should be as fast as possible anyway. If I know how many gens to mutate I can easily make some other random function that will tell me which of them to mutate
