Hi all!

I'm new to this group and hope that my account won't be deleted (twice), at least not without some explanation. With that said, I'm sure there are allot of good people here with an extensive background in mathematics. Someone that perhaps can assist me in solving a problem I may encounter from time to time. I'm currently retired and in R&D on a special project that's been going on for some time now. My math skills were very good once but as time goes by, one may tend to forget those talents one had long ago.

It's nice to be here (I think) and a good hearty hello to all.

hi rvdude

Welcome to the forum!

I understand that your registration has hit a few glitches in the system.  It's bizarre and, I think, unprecedented.

Happily, MIF has worked to overcome these and all that seems to be over and you are a member.  New members get the status level of Novice.  You'll find that some facilities don't kick in until you've made 10 posts, so don't panic if some things don't seem to work at first.

Re: Hi all!


Welcome to the forum.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Hi all!

Hi rvdude,

Welcome to the forum! (or back to the forum...)

From all that I've seen, there are very talented mathematicians here.  Even if some of us can't help you, I'm sure there are still a number of those who can, as this is a forum after all.  Anyone can answer and if it's not right, someone else is bound to correct it.  Hopefully, you will find the help you will need when/if the time comes.
