330 KB,

I have a PDF with around 500 pages I have to learn and partly memorize. There are pages with just photos, some definitions, examples, etc. Is there a /sci/ aproved way to learn? Should I write all the things I have to memorize on cards (which costs time) or learn directly out of the PDF?

Also because I'm a lazyfag I only have a few days left to learn that shit.

>pic not related but how the pages kind of look like

Group the cards into clusters, connect the clusters. Try to find dichtonomies, or barymetric relations. Thus it becomes easier to memorize

Is probability real?

probably

>>

probability is real because every system has an input and output, and given choices and the variables which dictate the combination of states which that system can take, there is a distribution in which you can say what the "probability" of an event occurring is.

if i flip a coin ten times, how many combinations are there?

given how many combinations are there, what is the probability that each one will happen, and why?

each of those aspects are real. it's not just hand-waiving chaos or in-determinism, because that's not what it is trying to tackle. you can have a system where it's fully random, like a roulette table, and still deal with probability.

How do you know the scientific method gives valid results?

hey /sci/, what program would help me take enough physics/chemistry/math courses to do research on these techs while still using those credits accordingly for the degree itself instead of just squandering electives:

high temperature superconductors

Josephson junctions

multijunction photovoltaics

magnetic refrigeration

electroactive polymes

ultracapacitors

chemical vapor deposition

Selective laser sintering

machine learning

electron beam welding

Hall-effect thruster

Spherical Tokamaks

scramjets

nitroamines

rotaxanes

Chemistry with a focus in physical chemistry. That alone will get you up to modern physics, linear algebra, and you'll take all the chem you need.

>>

>>7838812

what about other math like functional analysis? would it pop up in research of a superconductor

>>

>>7838822

Honestly I couldn't tell you, but I assume you wouldn't need functional analysis for superconductivity. I had only up to vector/multivariate calculus for my undergraduate major. Anytime a subject, like biochem physics, needed mathematics I hadn't taken yet or practiced, the applications were uniform enough that they were easily learned and understood in context.

15 KB,

hello /sci/

the longest word composed by 'a' and 'b' with no pattern repeated twice in a row has length 3, for instance "aba"

it is pretty clear it cant get any longer

what would be the maximum length with no pattern repeated three times in a row? is it even finite?

it can get pretty long, for instance

aabbaabbaabaabbaabbaabaabbaabbabaabbaabbaabaabbaabbaabaabbaabbabaabbaabbaab...

however, for instance, aabababb is not permitted, since 'ab' is repeated three times in a row

>>7838787

your example has the string "aabbaabbaab" repeat continuously.

what is the minimum number of characters required to be a pattern?

>>

a more technical formulation of my question would be "is the quotient of the free group [math]F_2[/math] by [math]\forall x~x^3=e[/math] finite?"

>>

>>7838797

look again at my example

also, the "..." do not imoly that the pattern is repeating, it means that i could go much further but it gets boring

any repeated sequence of characters is a pattern

I'm starting my PhD on machine learning starting next spring.

I'm worrying right now because my math is pretty much shit thanks to my shitty undergrad CS courses. (No rigour maths, the hardest is probably Discrete math, my school didn't even offer Analysis, only Cal 1 2 3. Yes, the school is shit, don't ask its name).

I can read empirical ML papers fine, even if the consists some basic Calculus level equations. But when it comes to difficult models/learning processes which requires a lot of math maturity, I'm fucked.

So I have to learn Analysis,...

I'll be honest with you: unless you are a genius, there's no way that, without mathematical training, you will understand in 2 months analysis and differential geometry without sounding like a dumbass when someone asks a question.

Not only becuause they're somewhat difficult subjects (not that much) but also because they build on other fields (algebra, topology).

So just try to find how to solve this problem without relying on learning this in 2 months.

And, by the way, for geometry...

Holy shit, which program give you an offer?.... I applied this year to several programs in the same area and they are very selective with the people they choose?

How can you tell if you or someone else you know might have an IQ in the range of 200+ without resorting to official testing?

Say, for example, you're someone who has scored the top grades across the board in your country's public exams with very little effort (less than two hours revision, five days a week, for three months prior to the exams themselves)? This might indicate a high level of intelligence, but what if you have a personal distaste for mathematics? Let's say it doesn't excite you and you never took it beyond high-school.

There's almost no correlation between grades and IQ. One of the few things IQ predicts is social deficits at high IQ's, 150+ I believe is when it becomes strongly correlated. Math is a solitary, cerebral, logical pursuit. It makes sense that someone with a very high IQ might be drawn to study maths. Also 200+ is unheard of as far as I know. Don't get hung up on IQ. It's not a bad assessment of some basic intellectual capabilities,...
