### Re: Do all functions change the size or order of something?

how about f(x) = x * product n = 1 to N of (x-n)/(x-n) Does not change size, does not change order. All it does is introduce holes. What is N? It looks like the end result would be the identity map on whatever x belongs to minus naturals 1 to N, just a complicated means of expression - I feel like ...

Hello all, I have an initial value problem for which I need to answer 2 questions. y''+12y'+4 = 0, y(0) = a > 0, y'(0) = -1 a) Solve the initial value problem: I found the solution to be y = ae 2t/3 +(2a/3-1)te 2t/3 for these initial conditions, since the characteristic polynomial has a double root....

### Re: Frontiers in Data Indexing

Magnetic-core memory stored bits in two dimensions, and I believe it is quite likely that in the future we have data cubes that are sort of like 3D flash memories (once we hit the atomic limit for storing bits, the only thing we can do is make the memory storage bigger). There are indexing schemes ...

### Re: Frontiers in Data Indexing

There are indexing schemes beyond 1 dimension, but by the very nature of how things are accessed in computer memory and storage, things are always 1 dimensional. Things have a 1 dimensional address. Since computer memory and storage is discrete, finite, and sequentially addressed, any N-dimensional ...

### Re: Copy :Does anybody knows why people always pick number 3

If someone asks you to pick a number between 1 and 10, pick 10. They will demand you pick another number, even though it was given as an option in the initial list (which is usually inclusive in said statement).

Good to hear that you are enjoying the class. It was certainly my experience that the more advanced courses in Mathematics, such as Analysis and Number Theory, were much more enjoyable than computational ones such as Calculus.

### Re: Determining Big O() runtime on execution of a matrix

If the operation is O(1) and the algorithm is as given, the order is O(m^2). It's pointless to argue about Big O notation without saying what the variables represent. If n = m, then O(n^2). If n = items in matrix, then O(m).
