Vector spacesWhen learning about vector spaces, I came accross this pdf:
Simplicity? Yea... right... "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #2 20060615 02:15:43
Re: Vector spaceswhat the... thats just ridiculous The Beginning Of All Things To End. The End Of All Things To Come. #3 20060615 07:32:09

Re: Vector spacesI think my favorite is: "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #5 20060623 22:26:45
Re: Vector spacesI found another site where it says Chuck Norris can speak braille Last edited by MathsIsFun (20060624 09:35:34) Chaos is found in greatest abundance wherever order is being saught. It always defeats order, because it is better organized. #7 20060624 09:36:46
