I came to the conclusion...

I came to the conclusion...


That, joining this forum was a Nash Equilibrium.

Hi;

Welcome to the forum.


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

If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.

Re: I came to the conclusion...

hi therussequilibrium

Welcome to the forum.

this forum was a Nash Equilibrium.

'was' ?  Do you mean that something has recently happened to change this equilibrium state?

If so, what?

That answer to one side for the moment, I think I could find posts that would disprove your assertion.  smile

Re: I came to the conclusion...

Hi Bob! wave

It would seem that my structure in my assertion was wrong, throwing off data.  More correct is my conclusion is: "that joining this forum is a Nash Equilibrium."

And here are my assumptions given my estimated values of what joining would have on our species as a whole.


 
                 General Population
               |               |               |
________|_Joining|__Not___|
               |           5  |             1|
               |               |               |
  Joining   |               |               |
________|_5_____|_3______|
               |           3  |             1|
Not         |               |               |
               |               |               |
________|_1_____|_1______|

Joining, from my calculation(maybe I have overestimated what the values truly are) Joining is in one's best interest as advancements in mathematics can only go to bettering the human species as a whole; mathematics, in my humble opinion, is the building blocks to life.  up

Now that's a statement I wouldn't argue with!!!

And also demonstrates one of the great features of the forum .... a poster, and the person who replies, can both move forward in understanding just by communicating.

You can quote me on it to her if that helps.
