What? Introduction to Quantum Mechanics by Griffths and Physical Chemistry by Atkins are frequently recommended as supplement/main texts for Quantum/Physical Chem courses. Harris and Bertolucci's Symmetry and Spectroscopy is more geared towards an Inorganic/Spectroscopy/Group Theory course but it's not inaccessible.

>>7779257 >>7779257 Did you like pure mathematical logic? ie, predicate, propositional, modal logics? Do you like, and are familiar with a lot of mathematical notation?
If you answered yes, find a functional language like a LISP or Haskell that suits your needs.
If you answered no, hop on the bandwagon and use python. This is for AI of course, and that's basically the only one you have a choice with. Mechanical engineering(unless you are doing it yourself,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
From Merzbach and Boyer's "A History of Mathematics" (good read by the way, heartily recommend) - "The decimal system, common to most civilizations, had been submerged in Mesopotamia under a notation that made fundamental to the base 60" >base >60 Why? What would compel them to do this?
can someone explain to me why it's so important that N!=NP? i don't get it. what's so different if something can be expressed as a polynomial? i read the implications on wiki but those seem weird, like cryptography breaking down etc.
>>7779201 If P = NP then that means problems that were before non-polynomial can now be solved in polynomial time. This has huge implications on cryptography in particular because modern day cryptography is based on prime factorisation which is currently an NP problem (a problem that cannot be solved in polynomial time). If it was proved that P = NP then these forms of cryptography would be "broken" and big problem would follow.
>>7779215 i read that and it seems silly because the algorithms required to break cryptography wouldn't magically appear out of thin air just because we've proven them to exist. or am i wrong about that? >>7779217 k
If the fundamental bits of energy in the universe (those "vibrating strings") are non-divisible and thus homogeneous how it is that they are understood to vibrate differently from one another? How is such a difference brought about?
There's very little published genomic data from Australians at present. Intredasting that the best fitting models were all Papuan + SE Asian. were there migrations into Australia that bypassed New Guinea?
How does one get a good understanding of preprocessing data before starting to think about neural network architecture, etc?
Is there a checklist or something? I guess there's imputation if needed, converting categorical to numerical, then... I look for correlations (correlation matrix) and maybe for mutual information (to check for non-linear correlations) but what else? I don't know, is there a complete guide for this?
>>7779038 Writing a scientific paper on a topic you love is a whole lot different from writing a paper on some socialist propaganda in the form of a book which was shoved down your throat by a cultural marxist professor.
Place your bets, people. Will it be delayed, blow up, crash on landing, or work perfectly. Or, if the comments on NASA's facebook-page are true and space is just a carped made by the government to fool us for some reason and rockets dont work in vacuum, what will happen? >http://www.space.com/31582-spacex-rocket-landing-jason3-satellite-launch.html?cmpid=514630_20160112_57180146&adbid=10153252154381466&adbpl=fb&adbpr=17610706465
