 Mar 28 awarded Popular Question Nov 7 comment Applying a Function to Square Matrices Sorry, I am very new to this. My professor simply said this was a challenge problem, but I found it interesting. So if we apply $p$ to a matrix $A$, would that not change the eigenvalue? I apologize for not knowing too much about the subject Nov 7 comment Game Theory Matching a Deck of Cards Sorry, I have looked at the Wikipedia article on permutations and dont see how one could immediately tell if it is even or odd. I assume that will lead into the probability. Nov 7 comment Game Theory Matching a Deck of Cards Sure, but then how would we go about precisely telling who wins (i.e. whether it's even or odd), based on the original configuration? And then what relevance would rule iv) have (i assume you mean by your comment that the deck can ALWAYS be rearranged, in which case rule iv is superfluous) Nov 7 comment Game Theory Matching a Deck of Cards ^can you please explain?

Nov 7 comment Applying a Function to Square Matrices Ah I am having trouble finding that initial footing. Perhaps if you showed me how to start with that case, I may be able to proceed? Nov 7 asked Game Theory Matching a Deck of Cards Nov 7 comment Applying a Function to Square Matrices no, nothing more about $f$ is given than what was stated. How would the eigenvalues be of use though?

Nov 5 comment Exploring Properties of Pascal's Triangle $\pmod 2$ That much I figured :) But patterns only yield so much insight.... and for me, none at all :P Nov 5 asked Exploring Properties of Pascal's Triangle $\pmod 2$
