Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThey love it if you are strong and show no humility, be arrogant and math... but my worry is that when I act that way towards them, I will actually get like that. I don't want to become that kind of person. #6677 20130116 03:45:20
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaEver try to change anything about yourself? It is darn near impossible. Most people do not know how. You should develope a different personality for different situations. You never show the real one, if you can even find it yourself. You put each persona into a compartment in your mind and use it when necessary. 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. #6678 20130116 03:50:39
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI think my persona when I am alone is very different to my persona when interacting with just about everyone else. It is especially different around women. #6679 20130116 04:03:19
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThat is what you need to develop. This is not aggression, this is survival. They love to play with a man's head until they have him babbling and insane. That is why we need defenses too. 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. #6680 20130116 04:08:17
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYes, F did that to me. I would not be thinking about her so much if I were stronger. #6681 20130116 04:11:08
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaA few bumps on the head are perfect for forming scar tissue. Lots of scar tissue and you have a hard exterior while the interior remains soft and chewy. 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. #6682 20130116 04:29:37
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI don't know if my exterior is getting any harder. When will it get harder? For some reason I had a dream about F a few nights ago, and it was just me and her in a park, hugging. I don't know why I dreamed that but when I woke up I was thinking about her for the whole day. #6683 20130116 04:34:35
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThat is just residual traces, those go away too. Start thinking about one of the new ones, that will help you forget. 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. #6684 20130116 04:38:49
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI know that the best way to move on is to get with another girl. But I've never had dreams about any of the others... #6685 20130116 04:43:21
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaTakes a little experience to shut that out of your mind. Sometimes you can not and then you will suffer for a long time. I think the best thing is to be more selective on those you choose. 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. #6686 20130116 04:46:44
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThat is a skill I need to develop too. I never thought F would act the way she has, and it's certainly possible that any of the others girls could do that too (except Rhona, I don't see her doing that to be honest). #6687 20130116 04:53:08
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaIf you are right then you are developing the skill to spot the ones who might play games from the ones who definitely will and the ones who will 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. #6688 20130116 04:57:21
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaPJ would definitely play games. #6689 20130116 04:58:56
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYou will make some mistakes even with more experience but it should cut the mistakes down. 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. #6690 20130116 05:03:24#6691 20130116 07:49:07
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaHi; 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. #6692 20130116 07:52:54
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThank you, I will. Another good thing is that I get £2000 or so extra because living in London is more expensive. And I might see someone I know from school going there too (although not many people get in from my school since we don't get that good results, but I have a feeling my friend will get in, for maths no less). #6693 20130116 08:01:17
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWhat will you study there? What type of math do you like? 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. #6694 20130116 08:06:55
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaIn the first year you can't choose what you study. There is a good summary if you Google "UCL maths course" and click on "undergraduates". A lot of the modules that I find interesting are in second year though. At Cambridge you do a lot of that second year stuff in the first year but maybe the slower pace of the course would be better for me. #6695 20130116 08:07:44
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaMy favourites from there were complex and real analysis, probability and statistics, and number theory. I find mathematical methods and the economics stuff kind of boring. #6696 20130116 08:12:11
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThere is some good stuff in that list how many can you take at once? 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. #6697 20130116 08:15:57
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI'm not sure... I think everything in the first year is compulsory though. #6698 20130116 08:19:45

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYes. I like the sound of the stuff in 2nd year though. #6700 20130116 08:23:25
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaIs that an option that you have? 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.
