 Nov 7 comment What is the output of an indicator function $\mathbb{1}_{A_i}(w)$ over some set $X=\{w_1,…,w_n\}$? 1 if $w \in A_i$, 0 otherwise. Jul 2 awarded Yearling Nov 9 comment Suffix string starting at $i$ That's what it sounds like. Feb 19 comment If the cost per minute is $\$0.032$, is the cost per hour$\$1.92$ or $1.92$¢? Since you started with dollars, it won't magically change to cents. If garlic is $0.50 each, buying 10 of them will be$0.50*10 = $5.00 not 5.00¢. If you want to convert dollar to cents you have to multiply by 100¢/$1. See khanacademy.org/math/cc-sixth-grade-math/… Jan 25 comment Is computer science a branch of mathematics? I did not criticize computer science, the internet, or masturbation. I criticize your philosophic post which conveys nothing to the reader despite the use of a thousand words. It was written for your pleasure only. Jan 24 comment Is computer science a branch of mathematics? @SpYk3HH I agree. There is a point where reductionism becomes fruitless. Jan 10 comment Why are mathematical proofs that rely on computers controversial? "Also computers give connected people advantage, while without computers math is very open." I don't think this is a good reason at all. It is like saying math is more "open" if nobody referred to books, journals, or colleagues because books, journals, and colleagues are accessible only to "connected people". Jan 8 comment Quadratic formula - math error For classifying the point, it might be more useful to complete the square: x^2-2x+2 = (x +/- something)^2 +/- a constant. Then the nature of x=1 will be revealed. Jan 4 comment Prove that $4$ is the only solution to $2+2$. "Mom, if you don't believe me, don't use my result!" Dec 17 comment Best way to generalize a distribution of data into smaller subsets? You might want to search for "clustering" algorithms. Nov 20 comment Factors of a number. A number is called "even" if 2 is a factor. A number is called "odd" if 2 is not a factor. 70 is even because 2 is a factor but the other factors are 5 and 7. And you can't get 5 or 7 from 70/2, 70/4, 70/8, etc. Knowing a number is even gives you no other information other than 2 is a factor. Nov 20 answered Probability, that when we send a $0$ down the network we will get back a $0$ Nov 20 comment Showing that a functor is Exact What did you use to generate that beautiful diagram? Asymptote? Nov 15 answered Continued fraction with alternative signs Nov 14 comment Continued fraction with alternative signs Not a complete answer but Pringsheimâ€™s Theorem says that $|a_i| \ge 2$ is sufficient for convergence. See DLFM 1.12. Nov 13 answered Show Time $T(n) = Î˜(n^3)$ Nov 8 revised Smallest possible volume of revolution added 70 characters in body Nov 8 answered Smallest possible volume of revolution Jul 7 comment Computing the value of logarithmic series: $Q(s,n) = \ln(1)^s + \ln(2)^s + \ln(3)^s + \cdots+ \ln(n)^s$ yes it does approach zero because if you calculate the error term or Euler-Maclaurin, you will see it is bounded by the first derivative (ie $s(\log(n))^{s-1}/n$). Jul 7 comment Computing the value of logarithmic series: $Q(s,n) = \ln(1)^s + \ln(2)^s + \ln(3)^s + \cdots+ \ln(n)^s$ You should expand your answer. Using just the first 3 terms of the Euler-Macclaurin formula, you can show that the error is less than $\frac{s}{12n}(\log(n))^{s-1}$ for $s\gt 1$. Unfortunately the error bound doesn't start going down until $n \gt e^{s-1}$.
