QuincunxI have made a Quincunx ! "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20060421 16:28:49
Re: QuincunxThe Quincunx is very well designed! When I looked into the explanation, I didn't find any mathematical error (I was in a hurry when I did). But to say it is 100% correct, I'd require a little more time! Character is who you are when no one is looking. #3 20060421 21:30:14
Re: QuincunxIt's hypnotic to watch! I can stare at it for hours! #4 20060422 01:29:01
Re: QuincunxWoah. That is amazing, even by your standards. It's really fun to look at. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #5 20060422 11:41:06
Re: Quincunx
You must have left it running all day or night! Sorry about the chopping off, if I make the text small enough to fit, it looks pretty poor. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #6 20060422 16:24:42

Re: QuincunxLOL!! "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #8 20060425 02:15:15
Re: QuincunxI used to have a few of these as a little kid. They were just toys; I didn't know they were a mathematical thingy! By the way, I haven't seen one in years. I wonder if they still make them? El que pega primero pega dos veces. #9 20060426 20:47:30
Re: QuincunxToys for young mathematicians: "Mummy, my Quincunx is Skewed by 10 Percent!" "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #10 20060524 22:28:39
Re: Quincunx
what does that mean! Chaos is found in greatest abundance wherever order is being saught. It always defeats order, because it is better organized. #12 20060528 02:04:45
Re: QuincunxI did .801 left for 10 high rows, 100 balls, and got: Last edited by John E. Franklin (20060528 02:06:50) igloo myrtilles fourmis #13 20060528 05:40:44
Re: QuincunxYou can enter the left probability yourself if you click it. Bang postponed. Not big enough. Reboot. #14 20060528 09:48:57
Re: QuincunxYou are supposed to sit there mesmerized, watching the balls bounce, until something in the back of your head says "Wake Up  It's 500 Now!" "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #15 20060724 06:08:17
Re: QuincunxThat looks amazing...I could sit and watch that through the holidays...
