Re: Expectation

It is kinda nice.

But I am currently more excited about something else.

Re: Expectation

What would that be?


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: Expectation

Last Saturday was the Serbian Republic competition in mathematics. I got a third place award and I am going to the Serbian Mathematical Olympiad. smile

Re: Expectation

I think combinatorics. And then number theory.

Well, in competitive mathematics, they are not related at all...

Re: Expectation

I don't like it much. I just get ideas faster than in other 3 topics that are included in the competition.

Re: Expectation

Actually, sorry. I get ideas slower in the 2 other topics, analysis and geometry.

In combinatorics I get ideas the fastest.
