When did functional analysis turn into a meme field?
>we already have a large zoo of function spaces
>b-b-but muh functions with this property are so special, they deserve to have their own function space with its own special name and symbol
>let's prove theorems about them, just for the sake of having proven theorems about them
Literally biology tier at this point. Every idiot thinks the can make up his own category regardless of whether it's meaningful or not....

Tfw math will advance so fast in your lifetime that there's absolutely no chance of learning it all
Nah, it was like that for hundrets of years. Of course, at some point people came and cleared up subjects and made them accessible from simpler perspectives. There are so many many topics with hundrets of papers on them that people lost interest in and nobody today really knows about them.
e.g. you never learn much about
and that's at least a simple to define algebraic concept. Things like

Is Banking a Science?
banking is not a science in the same way that car mechanics is not a science
you are not explicitly _investigating_ something. and whenever you are learning something new about your topic, it is not about a natural system but a manmade system. you may say that science also studies man, of course, or that the product of human interactions, yes. but banking is not the study of this, economy is a study of something like this, but banking is a profession not a science
Is it normal to get urges of extreme anger, frustration, despair, murderous and genocidal thoughts if one cannot solve a math problem even after reading through the books, watching youtube vids and searching on google?
well it seems
f(y,p) = f(y|p) * f(p)
y|p ~ binomial (n, p)
p ~ beta (alpha, beta)
you're looking for f(y) so you integrate f(y,p) for all possible p's.
You use the fact that the integral from 0 to 1 of
p^(x-1) * (1-p)^(y-1)
and you obtain the resulting distribution for f(y)
Except the murderous part yes. Welcome to mathematics! As an aside, this also happens in applied theory, when no one has ever asked a question similar to yours and you have to do all the findings on your own.
>tfw none of the probes are even remotely headed towards Planet Nine
It's not that difficult to adjust the orbit, in space. Some of the do cross the orbit of the planet. Adjust it, the wait for it to come along. Trust me, I've played KSP, so im an expert with regards to space travel.
Whats a good analogy for kids to describe hysterisis?
A key in a door lock.
No action on the key (no n-1):
The door can be open or closed (information pass through).
Action on the key (n-1):
The door is closed (information is stocked and can't be modified ~ memory).

Suppose NASA did actually find out that advanced alien life in our solar system existed, would they REALLY want to disclose the truth to the public?
Would they really?
I mean, consider the geopolitical, economical, religious and social impact here.
Be honest /sci/.
Pretty much everyone working at NASA is passionate about space exploration. The massive hike in public support and financing would be too much to pass up on. I really don't think you can tell NASA to just 'keep it quiet' when they discover alien live.
Remember that \sci\ meme that eating Veges isn't better for you than eating mostly meats?
Eating veges doesn't make a difference because it's mostly fibre.
It's only useful if you aren't taking a multi-vit or getting your fibre elsewhere, it won't affect any aspects of your diet unless you go overboard with it when you're trying to get into ketosis etc.
Going to the lab today too?
I work in industry R&D now - we aren't even allowed in at weekends or late weeknights
It's an abstract kind of feel
How do you organize and name your papers?
I'm looking for plants or trees that are compatible with mushroom mycelium. these plants cannot release pollen or products into the air that would contaminate or cause mold. preferrably these plants should require basic sun or little sun. does anyone have an idea?
What does /sci/ think about the Em Drive? At first I thought it was a meme because it violates the Conservation of momentum and Newton's Third Law but NASA's replication efforts as well as other groups of researchers have been successful and have produced thrust.
So what do you think? Will the Em Drive take humanity to the stars?
>Mr. Joosten and Dr. White stated that “a one-way, non-decelerating trip to Alpha Centauri under a constant one milli-g acceleration” from an EM drive would result in an arrival speed of 9.4 percent the speed of light and result in a total transit time from Earth to Alpha Centauri of just 92 years.
However, if the intentions of such a mission were to perform in-situ observations and experiments in the Alpha Centauri system, then deceleration would be needed.
This added component would result in a 130-year transit time from Earth to Alpha Centauri – which is still a significant improvement over the multi-thousand year timetable such a mission would take using current chemical propulsion technology.
Does it really matter if science is funded by industry? It just gives people an excuse to call others corporate shills.
science is about looking for knowledge about how the world works, not looking for immediately applicable knowledge.
The first kind is supposed to contribute to the whole community (by opening the way to the second one further in the future potentially), while the second one contributes to... the first one that finds it.
This is why science is publicly funded, while research and development is funded by the private sector.
