Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

What method is that?

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

It is called cfrax and I used it a long time ago.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

It is not a hand method?

He does it by hand in this paper.

You have to know your stuff about conjugates.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Thank you, that was very useful! Page 5 says it all. And it requires only one use of the floor function, of the square root of an integer. Now I understand how people seem to generate these by hand, it is just like the gcd algorithm.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Yes, it can also be mechanized easily.

There are also ways for roots of any quadratic.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I imagine you would just generate the CF for (P + sqrt(Q)) / R, the roots of a quadratic, by doing it for the radical first then manipulating it. Or you could get the quadratic into 'iterating' form. I have only done this for the golden ratio one though.

I am hoping adriana is just still in Barcelona... maybe she is coming back on a school day. She did leave on one, after all...

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I like the method of putting the quadratic into cf form.

What the heck is she doing in Barcelona for so long? Another bf or did the guy from Cyprus follow her?

Yes, or maybe she just doesn't have the time to email me...

I'd ask Hannah if adriana is in her lessons but she hasn't talked to me in a week.

I hope she does too. But try to keep your mind focused on other things.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

I wonder if she would be less attached to her BF or wanted to break up with him more if I'd done more with adriana, or at least attempted to... for instance, whenever she had something on her face, like an eyelash, she'd always let me get it off for her, thereby signifying a good level of trust, whereas I think most people would try to brush it off themselves. I will try not to be so reluctant again...

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Definitely you should respond to everything concerning them with a take charge attitude. You would have had more fun but it would not prevent what happened.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula

Had you developed a deeper relationship with her it would not last. That type does not like commitment. It would have lasted a short time and she would have caused a breakup. You would have been devastated.

Yes. Although, it is only barely staying with him. She started it, and continued it 6 months later, performing for him every week on webcam in those 24 weeks or so.

That is not staying with him. She can not be loyal or faithful. I told you about my experience with someone just like her.
