Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYep, a particularly nasty mess of them too. I got the plates and some pots done. 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. #11702 20130709 21:43:03#11703 20130709 21:52:18
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaMy back bothers me the most when doing jobs around that sink. It is too low and I have to bend a lot. I just go slow and get it done in pieces. 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. #11704 20130709 21:59:11#11705 20130709 22:04:53
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI do not think so because it would make me taller. The sink was obviously constructed for a smaller person or one with a normal back. 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. #11706 20130709 22:20:15
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaA lower stool, I mean  my grandad has one in the bathroom for the sink. #11707 20130709 22:25:21
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaTo sit on or stand on? 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. #11708 20130710 00:02:05#11709 20130710 00:08:43
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI wished I had something like that, maybe a bar stool. 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. #11710 20130710 01:17:02#11711 20130710 01:19:54
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaAnybody can get it regardless of age or shape. 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. #11712 20130710 06:06:36
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI feel it too if I bend down for too long, but it is probably not the same thing. #11713 20130710 06:13:09
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaActually it is quite funny to see all the ugly little kids in the neighborhood staring at me as I lurch and groan while walking down the street. Their mothers say a little prayer as the monster passes them, to protect them. "Your prayers are useless against me you ugly old skank," I scream. "I am not a monster. I am a human being just like you." 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. #11714 20130710 09:12:05
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaHmm, never found a Mother literally uttering prayers in such a scenario... #11715 20130710 09:21:23
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYou have never had me walking through your streets. 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. #11716 20130711 06:07:34
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI have seen some pretty scary ones. There is an elderly man who has a terrible back problem walking along my street every morning, he is almost completely keeling over. #11717 20130711 06:41:12
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. #11718 20130711 06:53:04#11719 20130711 07:03:39
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaOkay, checking his answer first before we start. 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. #11720 20130711 07:23:32
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaSince x ≥ 0 and f(x) ≥ 0, we should consider a contour such as this: In other words, the upper righthand quarter of a circle, enclosing the whole of the first quadrant. So we have: . The residue at the pole is . And that's as far as I've got, because I don't know what to do next... #11721 20130711 07:34:14
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI do not think that is right. The correct answer here in my notes is π/3 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. #11722 20130711 07:39:28#11723 20130711 07:55:03
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaMy error, you are just computing the pole and the residue so that is correct so far. Excuse the confusion, I am looking at two sets of notes that are not yet cleaned up. This is a work in progress for me. 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. #11724 20130711 17:44:08#11725 20130711 17:45:41
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYes, I have it done by the residue method. 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.
