 May 3 revised What is an axiom in layman's terms? added 267 characters in body May 3 comment What is an axiom in layman's terms? @AndyK - I also recall from my university days (a looong time ago now) that 1 = 1 is also an axiom of a kind but I cannot find a reference to post. May 3 answered What is an axiom in layman's terms? Jun 22 comment Are older mathematics textbooks still “valid”? @DavidRicherby - I totally disagree. The need to google "Magnavox Odyssey" perfectly echoed the "... the language will be very unorthodox by today's standards ..." point made later. May 21 comment How to force prime numbers into a line? Also see Ulam Spiral - great fun. :) Apr 20 awarded Benefactor Apr 20 accepted Differentiate polynomials in $\mathbb{Z}_2[x]$ Apr 16 revised Differentiate polynomials in $\mathbb{Z}_2[x]$ edited title Apr 15 revised Differentiate polynomials in $\mathbb{Z}_2[x]$ deleted 2084 characters in body Apr 14 comment Differentiate polynomials in $\mathbb{Z}_2[x]$ @Jean-ClaudeArbaut - No, it's of characteristic 2.... If you could post that as an answer I can give you the points - essentially you are saying it cannot be done. Thank you for you help. I will investigate your further points. Apr 14 comment Differentiate polynomials in $\mathbb{Z}_2[x]$ @Jean-ClaudeArbaut - so is Z2 characteristic 0? Apr 14 comment Differentiate polynomials in $\mathbb{Z}_2[x]$ @LuisGomezSanchez - I expect wierd stuff in a finite field but have I got them right?
