A problem worth solving?

Right now, I am doing PhD in Computer Science from University of Minnesota Twin Cities. I am using Machine Learning(ML) algorithm on CRM solutions that will help in ways (that human minds can't expect). My thesis include implementation of feeding Non-Linear inputs to Support Vector Machines(SVM) alo...

Re: uniform acceleration

You have to tell the time periods? Otherwise, it will be one quantity will be expressed as other quantity.

This situation happens, when you provide less number of equations than number of variables that are directly involved (through any combination of equations).

Re: Counting Zeros

This is nothing related to mathematics. Suppose it as a sequence question or more specific this is a multiple sequences arranged in a certain order. These type of questions are made to confuse the students (at least me). Where they pretend multiple questions like this one during Math-I of my 1st col...

Re: Decimal like Concepts in Other Bases?

Nope, the methods are same and almost look alike. Let's take a look inside. Base 10 7 + 1 = 8 Base 8 7 + 1 = 10 This is the only rule, while performing operation. First, if n is the base, then 0 to n-1 are the valid numbers. Second, if the 'n-1 + n+1' It will not be 2n. It will not be 2n, it will be...

Re: 1 is Not Prime

My teacher once explained the theory. Multiple people have multiple opinions about these things. These are conjecture, rather than valid results. As 1/1 = 1 and only divisible by it'self and 1(this recur). This is the weakness of mathematics that will apply on infinity points( or numbers in your cas...

Re: Fastest Minesweeper ever! What are the chances?

It all depends on the algorithm that is created by microsoft in this case. Second, you can't draw the probability, if you don't know multiple factors. In this case, you know how many mines are there and how many are left hidden. Let say, the algorithm favors all the hidden points equally. If the dis...

Re: Should matrices be row-major or column-major?

I does not matter. Most of the times, teacher use the row-major. And it is being followed from one generation to another. You can also use the column-major instead and make the analogues changing. In my case, I will see, which way lower number of operations are performed. I will use row-major or col...

Re: faster function than 1/x?

Why are you becoming complex. There is another easier and you only need to do subtraction and a if statement. Let say, x1 = 4 and x2 = 2 which means f(x1) < f(x2) if f(x) = 1/x. But But you can also implement Let say f(x1,x2) = x1 - x2 If f(x1,x2)>f(x2,x1) then f(x1) = x2 f(x2) = x1 else f(x1) = x1 ...

Re: New to Coding

I would say, try to implement as many algorithms you can (during your 20's). Further, try to build algorithms that have multiple output constraints and try to implement the full solution ( don't give away, if you have little issues or remove those constraints). What I am trying to say is, always imp...

Re: Greatest Mathematician of all time?

I would say, the mathematicians that invented things before people could imagined those things. Like deriving the complex real world problem with simplicity. This would include Lebneiz, Khwarizmi, Joseph Fourier, Thales and Pythagorus. If you include applied math, I would say Einstein and Alan Turing.
