Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYes, you might see someone else there. 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. #12252 20131005 04:46:07
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI've met the girls at the meetings. They don't seem like great prospects... #12253 20131005 04:49:42
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaLooks like you are off to a slow 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. #12254 20131005 04:52:35#12255 20131005 04:57:14
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaSo far no good prospects. 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. #12256 20131005 05:02:33
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI have only been there 2 weeks... is that bad? #12257 20131005 05:04:49
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaNo, that is not long enough in most cases. 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. #12258 20131005 05:06:47
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaTrouble is, most girls are international students, with very poor English. The girl who approached me was a breath of fresh air because she was English (not a racial thing  I was just happy that I didn't have to speak slowly and as simply as possible). #12259 20131005 05:12:26
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThat does make it easier. 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. #12260 20131005 05:24:52
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaHave you ever dated someone who did not speak English? #12261 20131005 05:37:08
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaNope, I would not have been able to communicate with 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. #12262 20131005 19:32:14
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaNothing new from her yet... perhaps she will respond this evening. #12263 20131005 19:38:00
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThe girl sitting next to 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. #12264 20131005 20:02:52
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYes, her. I get the feeling this will be another dead end though. #12265 20131005 20:06:35
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaPerhaps, but it has cost you nothing. If you can remain detached you are not risking your emotions or your ego. If you and her get together that is fine, if not that is fine too. 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. #12266 20131006 08:44:44
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaIt might cost me a little time, but you are right. If I am detached then I cannot be hurt. Unless, the girl finds a way to make me attached and I am unable to resist... and given that I have no experience, I fear that this may be the case eventually. #12267 20131006 10:01:49
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThat does happen but you are trying to minimize it. The fewer the better. 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. #12268 20131007 00:30:43#12269 20131007 09:08:03
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaHope you do not mean 2 rejections?! 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. #12270 20131007 20:55:15
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI meant having to deal with two girls. Although I feel if I asked them out now, they would reject me. #12271 20131007 21:57:35
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThat is always a possibility. But before you go imagining that why not wait and see what happens. 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. #12272 20131007 22:22:19
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI don't know what I am waiting for, though. The girl who sat next to me is called Katrina, and let's call my mentor M for short. (Ironically she hates computational mathematics so she probably would not use M, ever.) #12273 20131007 22:26:45
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI would wait a bit before contacting Katrina. Let's see if she sits by you again. That is what I would do but I am known to be a little on the slow side. 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. #12274 20131007 22:40:03
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaHmm. The annoying thing is that someone else might sit next to me instead of Katrina. #12275 20131007 22:58:50
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYou can tell them the seat is reserved for her. 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.
