Chance SimulatorThis is very much Draft (Beta or perhaps even Delta!) software, but thought you guys might like to take a look: "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20110428 15:03:45
Re: Chance SimulatorHi MIF; 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. #3 20110428 15:48:05
Re: Chance SimulatorI have just now put some examples on the page. Here is one: "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #4 20110428 17:11:42

Re: Chance SimulatorGreat! If you find something interesting you can now post your model by clicking on the "share" button (not fully functional yet, but getting there).

Re: Chance SimulatorHere's one I made similar to yours!! igloo myrtilles fourmis #8 20110518 03:28:04
Re: Chance SimulatorWoops, the model shown doesn't go to 60, just 6. igloo myrtilles fourmis #9 20110518 03:32:30
Re: Chance SimulatorHere's another one that count up the sixes too!! igloo myrtilles fourmis #10 20110518 03:33:43
Re: Chance SimulatorWoops, my logic =1 and sofar boxes didn't show up!! Maybe I didn't copy and igloo myrtilles fourmis #11 20110518 12:48:45
Re: Chance SimulatorHi John, "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #12 20110518 16:47:31
Re: Chance SimulatorFixed! Thanks John, I can now see what you did. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #13 20110519 11:02:38
Re: Chance SimulatorAwesome, thanks for fixing it! I'll come back to this somemore and build some more things soon... igloo myrtilles fourmis #14 20110519 11:45:15
Re: Chance SimulatorHere's something you might enjoy!!!! igloo myrtilles fourmis #15 20110519 11:48:01
Re: Chance SimulatorThere is a tiny bug you can easily fix. igloo myrtilles fourmis #16 20110519 11:54:59

Re: Chance SimulatorWhat is this bucket anyway? igloo myrtilles fourmis #18 20110519 14:30:51
Re: Chance SimulatorHmmm, very interesting, I would have thought the bottom bucket would have igloo myrtilles fourmis #19 20110519 16:11:19
Re: Chance SimulatorWow, that is amazing. Setting start values inside circular loops is hard ... any ideas? "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #20 20110519 23:37:18
Re: Chance SimulatorThe only thing that comes to my historical mind when I programmed in C, was the "static" type of number, such as a static long int, a static unsigned int, etc. I think "static" let you set the initial value in the declarations before runtime. But I really have no idea about Java code. Maybe someday I'll explore it, but I don't think I have the memory to take it all in. igloo myrtilles fourmis #21 20110520 06:08:45
Re: Chance SimulatorAnother thought that came to mind, is to have another box called "startup value" or something like "commencement value" or something better, I don't know what to call it. But you could hook that box up to the circular loop or to whatever you want, and it would link up only on the zeroth time, actually before runtime, or just at runtime before "once" is executed, the zeroth value would jump into place and the arrow link would then disappear or not happen anymore after that. But what to call it is the hard part so it is intuitive. "jump start value" ?? igloo myrtilles fourmis #22 20110520 07:43:17
Re: Chance SimulatorA "Once Only" box! "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #23 20110520 08:40:39
Re: Chance SimulatorAbsolutely awesome!!!! Go for it!! igloo myrtilles fourmis #24 20110522 08:44:40
Re: Chance SimulatorAm making some progress, but the order of calculations is posing problems ... it sometimes does things in what seem to be the "wrong" order, even though it is being very sensible. I have some ideas to work on, will let you know how I go. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #25 20110523 02:46:45
