Re: anyone good with doing math on excel?They take the same time. The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #52 20130503 21:53:49
Re: anyone good with doing math on excel?Go to 100000, I am getting a marked difference then. 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. #53 20130503 21:56:50
Re: anyone good with doing math on excel?Ah, I see it. The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #54 20130503 21:58:01
Re: anyone good with doing math on excel?Yes, Random Variate is much faster. You try to avoid loops in M coding. Table is like a loop. 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. #55 20130503 22:00:03
Re: anyone good with doing math on excel?Hm, so, this should be faster than both: Code:Count[RandomVariate[DiscreteUniformDistribution[{0, 1}], {100000, 10}], {___, 1, 1, 1, 1, ___}] right?

Re: anyone good with doing math on excel?Yes, I agree. But no simulation is even faster. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: anyone good with doing math on excel?That is true.

Re: anyone good with doing math on excel?First one in post #42 was the man until... Code:1  (RecurrenceTable[{a[n] == a[n  1] + a[n  2] + a[n  3] + a[n  4], a[1] == 2, a[2] == 4, a[3] == 8, a[4] == 15}, a, {n, 1, 10}] // Last)/1024 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. #59 20130503 22:26:36
Re: anyone good with doing math on excel?Could you explain it a bit?

Re: anyone good with doing math on excel?It is time for you to see something. 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. #61 20130503 22:29:30
Re: anyone good with doing math on excel?Sure. What is it I am to see?

Re: anyone good with doing math on excel?Something wonderful. I got that from 2010 the movie. 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. #63 20130503 22:31:16
Re: anyone good with doing math on excel?I haven't watched it. Or at least I do not remember watching it.

Re: anyone good with doing math on excel?A great movie that modern people have not seen. 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. #65 20130503 22:35:04
Re: anyone good with doing math on excel?I do not.

Re: anyone good with doing math on excel?This is my favorite: 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. #67 20130503 22:41:01
Re: anyone good with doing math on excel?I still do not understand how you got that recurrence.

Re: anyone good with doing math on excel?Experimental math of course! Did you read the link I sent you to? 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. #69 20130503 23:09:25
Re: anyone good with doing math on excel?I read it and still do not understand the recurrence. But, if it is true then there is a closed form.

Re: anyone good with doing math on excel?Solving that would be ugly beyond belief. Also, the recurrence and Fellers formula are sufficient for such a small problem. 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. #71 20130503 23:50:11
Re: anyone good with doing math on excel?Sorry. I thought I saw a pattern that wasn't really there.

Re: anyone good with doing math on excel?One from me? As soon as I solve something of worth and interest. 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. #73 20130504 00:03:41
Re: anyone good with doing math on excel?Ok.

Re: anyone good with doing math on excel?Who is your friend, may I ask? 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.
