Apr28 asked What is this problem called? Feb5 comment How do you compute the square of a Matrix in only 5 multiplications? The idea is that even if you could, it doesn't affect the algorithm run-time because your recurrence relation only satisfies T(n) = 5T(N/2) + O(N) for the first recurrence. However, once you go to the second recurrence, because you are computing the matrix multiplications M_1, M_2, etc, and you are no longer squaring matrices, the number of multiplications would go back up to the general case giving you T(N) = 7T(N/2)+O(N). I simply want to show that for the first step, you can use only 5 multiplications. Feb5 asked How do you compute the square of a Matrix in only 5 multiplications? Nov2 comment Can the Poisson Distribution be used to find the expected value of time of arrival given an expected arrivals per unit time? Can you help me understand why it's exponential rather than also Poisson? Also, am I right in my understanding that "Poisson with parameter $\lambda$" is the same as saying that the expected number of events per unit time is $\lambda$? Then, is there a continuous version of the Poisson distribution? It seems to me that an exponential distribution is equivalent to a Poisson distribution with k = 1, but is continuous...
