Re: ExpectationThe expected value is 1/probability is it not? 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. #127 20121110 05:07:04

Re: ExpectationMy result is correct. I just didn't sum the first row.

Re: ExpectationWhen I entered yours it says the trace is 14.7. The trace is the sum of the diagonal elements. It may or may not be correct. 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.

Re: ExpectationThe trace and the sum of the first row are the same for that matrix.

Re: ExpectationYes, but are you sure that will always be the case? 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.

Re: ExpectationNo, I sum the first row. WA is the one who thinks you need the trace.

Re: ExpectationThat is not the same result I am getting when I press the link.

Re: ExpectationSupposing others get my result? Isn't my way more reliable, since we are both getting the same answer. Also, my syntax is much closer to the package's syntax.

Re: ExpectationYou just had multiplication by the vector (1,1,1,1,1,1) and I did the multiplication by hand. It is the same method.

Re: ExpectationHi;
Hmmmm. You should already have the answer or darn close to one. Have you forgotten how we work? 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.
