Re: 1732: "Earth Temperature Timeline"

We all know, that the correct way to put the problem of time scales forward is to smooth present temperature change in the same way older t change was done and understand the effect then.

Hi, I was only asking here which approximation is Rocktaëschel's approximation to gamma function: gamma(z)==(z-1/2)lnz-z+ln(2pi)/2 gamma(z)==(z-1/2)ln(z-1/2)-(z-1/2)+ln(2pi)/2 gamma(z+1)==(z-1/2)lnz-z+ln(2pi)/2 Wikipedia has given me the two firsts.

Re: question about metrical spaces

Another question: what's the difference between a pseudometric space, with a pseudometrical topology, and a gauge space (or uniform space)?
How do you call a metric space with more than one function "distance"?

question about metrical spaces

If you have a metrical space, what's the curve where distance is the less possible. I mean, in euclidean space it is the line, in spherical space, it is the orthodromic, but which is the general?

How do you measure trust? Ct=[people*t]? Then, if it's SIMELA, it's better to adecquate to second. 1 Ct=1,8Gs*person. It'd be better 1Ct=1s*1person. Anyway, I sill doubt the utility of the unit.
