It seems as if what is and isn't a mental illness changes all the time in accordance to popular opinion. For example, in the 60s being homosexual was a mental illness, but now it isn't. Why is feeling sad a mental illness but wanting to change gender isn't? Or wanting to have sex with children and wanting to have sex with other men. This makes psychology feel very disingenuous as a science.
>>7787841 This basically. There are blind people throughout most religions and non-religions. Intellectuals believe that God exists from a philosophical viewpoint. The mindless ones follow it due to socialization and see it as an answer to all of the questions they're too lazy to reason through themselves.
What is the most prestige faculty in your university? Not really just in terms of money, fame or easy access to jobs afterwards but also what is considered around the campus to be exceptionally difficult and/or demanding and/or most difficult to be accepted ? I've started this semester to learn Physics and Electrical Engineering. In my campus it's considered top next to Medicine.
(also, apologizing if my English is somewhat broken. not 1st language and whatnot.. )
pic somewhat related - it differs around the world.
Most difficult to get accepted: U of T: Engineering Science McMaster: Health Science Waterloo: Math/Chartered Accounting I'm not sure if other schools really have programs that are notoriously difficult to get accepted to.
Definition of a sigma-algebra, of a measure, of a measurable function. Some constructions (product measures, push-forward, Caratheodory) Properties of the Lebesgue measure (regularity, behaviour under diffeomorphism) Construction of the integral relative to a measure Lp spaces Riesz representation theorems Radon-Nikodym theorem
depends what you need it for. if you only want to know the gist of it to bring it up in your autistic name-droppings, you have to realize that it is a way to formalize the whole aspect of "defining length", and from there, the fields of probability, integration, analysis fall out. For example, you can learn a good amount of Markov Chains without knowing measure and freely using Fubini to justify interchange of integral and summation(for integrable functions).
its a very dry field and you start from "basics"(sigma algebra, borel sets), and work... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Should math be the only undergrad major, and then you can pick something else for your graduate degree?
If gamers had to take 3 years of math before specializing in CS, they wouldn't be there to drag everyone else down.
If sociologists had to take 3 years of math before specializing in sociology, they wouldn't struggle so much with basic stats, and they would probably find the proper treatments of game theory very enlightening. Meanwhile, dumb SJWs would be weed out by this.
If history majors had to take 3 years of math before specializing in history,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>7787603 well they could just start teaching math properly and efficiently before university
like if I had started "basic mathematics" by serge Lange or "mathematics for nonmathematicians" or whatever other simple math book that starts with nothing and finishes with precalc when I was in middle school id have finished goddam high school with calc3 and diffyQs
sorry to highjack your thread, but you seem to have a neuroscience background (which i find pretty interesting). is it currently possible to selectively and reversibly "switch off" specific brain functions like seeing or hearing in lab-animals?
I come to you today as a beggar. I need help reconciling some data in my head and I just can't seem to explain it to myself in a way that makes sense.
I'll see if greentexting can keep this succinct:
>Need weekly average of "units per hour" >Create simple formula to calculate each day as though it was given 4 units of quarter-hour time (1 hour) >Then average each day over a week, expecting an accurate average for the week
It... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>7787544 >Averaging each day evenly should then return the same result as the week's total units divided by the week's total time, but it doesn't. It's not even close in some cases. A weighted average would You need to weight your mean with the time for each day.
