math notation to code notationhow can i write as code notation (like on programming languages like ansibasic, C, pascal, etc.) all the math notations we can get from OpenOffice's Math editor? these can be functions or algoritms #2 20050728 20:54:43
Re: math notation to code notationI don't use OpenOffice (though it sounds good!), so could you give some examples? "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #3 20050814 05:38:22

Re: math notation to code notationWow. It's been a really long time since I did any C programming, and I don't remember what Math functions are available. So, I'll give a couple simple examples in Java, which has similar syntax. Last edited by ryos (20050825 14:27:35) El que pega primero pega dos veces. #6 20050829 23:38:55
Re: math notation to code notationIn C, you can declare variable of various lengths, signed and unsigned numbers. #7 20050830 07:26:30
Re: math notation to code notationThat sounds correct, according to my memory of C. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #8 20050907 07:17:47
Re: math notation to code notationHere is an example from formulas i got from an ieee paper about using fractals for compressing pictures Last edited by nitrofurano (20050907 07:20:28) #9 20050907 07:50:57
Re: math notation to code notationMath notation is all about concepts. There may or may not be an algorithm, or there could be lots of algorithms! "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #10 20050907 10:38:09

Re: math notation to code notationthanks!!!  btw, if possible, the point is how can i get to know how can i convert these formulas into algorithms  the standard deviation i knew how to do it, but stuff like calculation integrals and all of these stuff i really don't know  my math notation knowledge got stuck in the middle of highschool, and i choosed finearts university, so, during a long time i don't know what is math notation, and that time i had no interest about math notation as i have now (i never thaught those would be helpful for me for picture processing)
