What are your thoughts on dual majoring?
Does it end up being worth it in the end or make you more marketable to employers?
Anyone here who has dual majored, have you tried hang yourself?
How likely is it that petroleum is produced without life?
It is my understanding that there are markers in the petroleum that insinuate it was once organic life, but now a few people in my group of friends are convinced about abiogenesis. Just curious if any of you have any experience with these hypotheses.
Hello my friends. I have a problem for you today.
the reciperocal pythagorean identity is the equation:
1/(a^2) + 1/(b^2) = 1/(c^2)
Try finding the smallest solution for positive integers, basically the smallest sum of the numbers a,b, and c.
No cheating! The answers of course can be found, but a rigourous method for finding it is the challenge. Any monkey could make a code or guess and check it.
Now, this fucker doesn't have any legs, limbs or doesn't have any muscles. It's baffling enough to understand how they move around and chase stuff but how does it move so fast ? It's ridiculous.
Have you read about slime molds? Another example of an unintelligent, simple life form that does some pretty amazing shit.
They can solve mazes, when separated they find each other again and reunite, really strange.
The other two cells that freak out. I have no idea how they can move so fast.
Even multicellular organisms like the tardigrade has completely evolved a multipedal muscular based system for walking as well as functions like eyes, respiratory and digestive tracts. And we're talking about an organism with 1/6th size of a sand crystal. This is bullshit.
Does the limit exist at x=c in pic related?
The way we learn(understand) Maths in elementary school is boring, if you were the Minister of education, How can you solve this issue?
Hey /sci/, I just finished highschool and want to get into studying neuroscience/something related by next year. I have to kill 6 months between now and starting military service (fucking austria) and would like to get familiar with the subject so I can decide whether or not this is something I want to dedicate my work/time to.
Could some of you anons give me tips on where to start? If possible weblinks/non expensive literature.
Thanks in advance
This is a pretty slow board so don't bother with bumps after just a few minutes. That being said I'm also interested in some good beginner resources for neuroscience so hopefully someone here can help us.
/sci/, what happens when you start fiddling around with diamonds and lasers?
I'm currently a first year maths undergrad in the UK, on completion of my 4 year course, I will have a Master's degree.
What do I have to do to get into research?
One of my biggest worries to how to make a good application for funding, or even getting the PhD itself. Any tips? ...To be honest, I lack basic knowledge like what ever are the prerequisites to get into maths research, all I really know is that you almost certainly need a PhD.
Why aren't trials based on Bayesian reasoning?
Criminal cases are based on reasonable doubt, no the balance of probabilities. Probability estimates are not evidence. They're supposition, circumstantial at best. Given the ability for so-called experts to get the calculations wrong and for jurors to misinterpret results, it should be used very carefully if at all (that case of the Dutch nurse prosecuted for murdering patients is another example – see Bad Science).
This is not anti-science or anti-math. It’s recognizing what probability theory is actually telling you. After all, banks use very sophisticated probability/statistical...

Why not deflect Venus from its orbit and make it collide with mars?
I'm looking for advice on how to financially support myself for graduate studies at MIT and similar tier universities.
Say that I do get accepted to one of those schools, what's the best option? I heard you can work inside? Will that cover all tuition and living expenses?
no idea about top tier but I'm applying to a relatively non competitive school (gre in about 12 hours fuck) and getting a TA position doesn't seem to difficult. I think they get benefits like a meal plan and obviously pay per hour. If you do decide to live on campus I think that is covered as well but tuition is still up to you so scholarships might help
how would you prove f(n) = a[sub]n using induction?
for a problem like f(n) = 2^n -1, and a[n] = 2*a[n-1]+1, a=1?
i proved a 2 base cases, n=1, n=2, to both be true. i don't get how you prove f(k+1) = a[k+1] though..
i left a soda can in my car last night and the next morning the sides were crushed in
can science explain this
The gas particles and liquid particles inside the pressurized can were okay all night until the sun started rising. The rising temperature made the gas particles start moving faster, hitting the walls of the can even harder, then making them bounce even harder in an endless process.
You may think that this would make the sides looked pushed out but this is where you need to drop chemistry bullshit and think about quantum physics.
So the gas particles kept going fast and hitting the walls of...
