Re: CAS suggestionsYou will have to get a faster machine. 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. #27 20130404 23:32:17
Re: CAS suggestionsThe same thing happened to me _ 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #28 20130404 23:33:47
Re: CAS suggestions
It has got nothing to do with a faster machine, he means something else 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #29 20130404 23:34:20
Re: CAS suggestionsI know I was pulling his leg! 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. #30 20130404 23:35:07
Re: CAS suggestionsBut it should not take more than a few months to get used to it. I downloaded Sagemath as well.

Re: CAS suggestionsIs any CAS really SIMPLE? I don't think so 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: CAS suggestionsI meant for all my practical purposes. I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain.

Re: CAS suggestionsIf they were simple how could they do mathematics which is not simple? 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. #35 20130404 23:39:30
Re: CAS suggestionsMathematics is not too complicated if you have the intuition and good work ethics. I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain.

Re: CAS suggestionsWhat if you do not? Computational mathematics is very difficult. 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. #37 20130404 23:51:11
Re: CAS suggestionsThat is the thing. 95% or probably more do not have the intuition. I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain.

Re: CAS suggestionsI have been looking at mine since 1998. I still only have scratched the surface. But even so a package can give useful results with only 10 minutes of training. 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. #39 20130404 23:55:12
Re: CAS suggestionsAgreed. However, what about the developers? Have they not mastered computational maths? I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain.

Re: CAS suggestionsThey are superhuman. Jerry Kiepfer largely wrote mathematica and William Schelter, maxima. Sage is the same. These guys are very, very good. 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. #41 20130405 00:41:30
Re: CAS suggestionsI have heard of William. There is no mention of Jerry though... Funny thing is, Maxima and similar CAS' are so unpopular. I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain. Fermat Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.

Re: CAS suggestionsThe mathematics community and academia do not wish to change the same old courses they have taught since Legendre introduced them. 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. #43 20130405 00:49:46
Re: CAS suggestionsEssentially, everyday I see children from school running with no bright future available. I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain. Fermat Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world. Archimedes Young man, in mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them.  Neumann #44 20130405 00:53:48
Re: CAS suggestionsThey have no future. They are not being educated to have one. 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. #45 20130405 00:54:57
Re: CAS suggestionsI am going the same way essentially. Focusing too much on maths and leaving the sciences behind. I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain. Fermat Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world. Archimedes Young man, in mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them.  Neumann #46 20130405 00:56:01
Re: CAS suggestionsI would say that is the right mix. 99% math and 1% science. 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. #47 20130405 00:56:59
Re: CAS suggestionsReally, science is more important to me then maths. I want to keep as much of a balance as I can. I have discovered a truly marvellous signature, which this margin is too narrow to contain. Fermat Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world. Archimedes Young man, in mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them.  Neumann #48 20130405 01:03:51
Re: CAS suggestionsThat is a good balance. Science changes by the day, math does not. To be good at science requires lots and lots of math as you know. 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. #49 20130405 02:16:39
Re: CAS suggestionsTrue, but science is thebasis of life. I agree that both are equally important and without one of them we can not do. As least some of us.

Re: CAS suggestionsIt is hard to find a good balance but you should try. 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.
