Just as an outsider reading this whole twofish-Ken G debate going on, I'll have two comments to make:
1) It has been very entertaining and as an undergraduate I have learned a lot from looking up a paper on a topic I did not know about when it was mentioned.
2) Twofish looks like he has a...
Don't be disheartened if you can't figure out questions after trying for a long time. I took a upper-division logic class on Godel's Incompleteness Theorems, Model Theory, etc. and it took me a few hours to understand what the questions on the assignments were EVEN ASKING. I spent over 100 hours...
The following is the sequence I would recommend given your background.
First and foremost: 1) Learn Linear Algebra! If you want a proof based approach I would recommend reading the chapter you need from Hoffman/Kunze, otherwise you can learn the computations and basic ideas from Gilbert Strang's...
Has anyone heard back from UCLA Logic Summer School? I haven't received a rejection letter but I also haven't heard ANYTHING. Has anyone else been rejected or accepted to this program? Does this mean I'm on a wait list?
Hello, I'm currently self-studying "An Introduction to Convex Polytopes" and I'm having some trouble understanding the different characterizations of affine independence. I understand that for an n-family (x_{1},...,x_{n}) of points from R^{d}, it is affinely independent if a linear combination...
A variable? There's no set word to describe whatever variable you insert inside of a trigonometric function. You just say that it is the parameter in terms of which the function is defined...?
Integration by Substitution? Let x = \theta ? The symbol \theta is pronounced theta? No idea what you are talking about.
Just so you know, there is no simpler form to:
\frac{sin(\theta)}{cos(2 \theta)}
IT DOES NOT EQUAL:
tan(\frac{1}{2} \theta)
No idea if this helps, still have no...
Oh no it doesn't. Sorry I thought you meant 1 bar of 120g soap costs $2 and you want 2 of them, so that would be $4.
Yeah, that doesn't affect anything. Just follow the ratios and you'll be fine! :D
Both of those deals are exactly the same.
Check the ratio of the grams of soap you are getting for the amount of money.
First one:
\frac{120g}{\$2} = \frac{60g}{\$}
So we have 60 grams per dollar for the soap.
Second one:
\frac{90g}{\$1.50} = \frac{60g}{\$}
So, again...

Homework Statement
Hi, I'm working on research and I hit a roadblock with something that should be very simple but I can't solve it because it gets so messy. If anyone can let me know how to do this, it would be greatly appreciated.
I have a functional T:
T = \int_{\lambda_{1}}^{\lambda_{2}}...
If this is the summer between your first and second year then definitely go home and see friends and family. Spend your quality time during the summer having a break and just don't worry about school! If this was in between your second and third year then I may have different advice, and if this...
Would it be a good idea, in preparation for a PhD program in Theoretical Physics, to just double major in Math as well as Physics in order to get a really firm grounding in Math?
Yeah, I did a combined honours degree in both Physics & Mathematics at UBC, I took 6 one semester.
-3 Math Courses (1 300-level, 2 400-level)
-2 Physics Courses (both 400-level)
-1 Philosophy Course (300-level)
And it was absolutely insane!!! 9 classes is absolutely impossible, I don't believe...
No way! Zif. 8 or 9 classes? That's literally impossible. I did 6 classes one semester and was totally swamped... there's no way they did good in those classes.
4 is a light-load if you are working part-time or something, 5 is the regular amount for full-time school, and 6 is really hard!

Take a look at this article and see if it answers any questions. If you still has some come back here and ask and I (or someone else) will answer you!
For a 3.8 - 4.0 GPA I would suggest to study for 50 hours a week outside of class during undergraduate school. You can afford to uphold a schedule like that (~10 hours a week per class) easily with taking most of saturday and sunday off and having two 4-hour outings throughout the week. Just be...

It will be very helpful for the students who are not as good at mathematics and have a hard time visualizing the double-napped cone and intersections.
Give me a minute, I'll solve this.
EDIT: Before I do anything. Are you sure that your expression here is correct?:
I_2 B_1 = I_1 B_2
When I expand from:
|F_{12}| = |-F_{21}|
I get:
I_1 l_1 B_1 = I_2 l_2 B_2
Where the lengths of the wires can cancel since they are the...
I typed the LaTeX wrong the first time, the last expression should read:
({6x})^{3/4}
Give that one a shot yourself and tell me where you get stuck, I'll be here reading this so I can help you along. :)
(\sqrt[4]{(a^3)(b^5)})^{1/2}
Hint: Remember roots are on the bottom, so convert the...
(\sqrt[4]{6x})^3
Step 1:
(({6x})^{1/4})^3
Step 2:
({6x})^{3/4}
Technically, you can go farther but this is the simplest and most compact form.
Remember when you are converting the square root into a fraction before you use the fractional exponent rule that, "Roots are located on the...
