Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionOh.

Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionCode, code, give me code! Okay, thank you. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #28 20130503 05:20:46
Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionI am not sure what you want.

Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionNothing, just singing an old song with my improved lyrics. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionHave you looked at the code?

Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionI just copied it to my notebook that deals with this problem. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #32 20130503 05:30:11
Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionWhat are those abilities?

Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionThe list appears endless but the one that applies is that I never could read code written by someone else. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #34 20130503 05:43:10
Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionGive me a few minutes to eat. When I get back, I will explain it a bit.

Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionVery good, I will eat and continue to explore mythological creatures from Serbia. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionMythological creatures? Like which?

Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionI see that. But my general approach to computing the exact numbers here would be to tree it. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #38 20130503 06:03:28
Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionTree it? How?

Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionYou aware that Markov chains and gf's can be compact representations of trees? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionI do not know how useful Markov chains are here. The probabilities change for different previous picks.

Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionExact a mundo! GF's will have the same problem. But if you had a big piece of paper you could do it... In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #42 20130503 06:24:43
Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionI do not think it will be enough for picks higher than the second.

Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionNope, if I had a big piece of paper, I could just enumerate the entire tree. From beginning to end. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #44 20130503 07:42:15
Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionWell, Markov chains require the probabilities to stay the same, but maybe we can do something with GF's?

Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionFirst, I am trying to work out the answer using programming. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #46 20130503 07:53:23
Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionThat will be hard.

Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionFor instance: In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #48 20130503 08:25:08
Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionHow'd you get those?

Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionWrote a little program to do it for me. As you can see all answers are close to my simulation. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #50 20130503 08:59:45
Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionCan you post the program code?
