It's a paper on abstract ways of thinking about how to apply all the mathematical stuff so I guess it doesn't really fall into your area of direct interest, which would be elegant mathematical proofs and schiit.

I self teach myself stuff if I can't be arsed to go to a lecture, and it's pretty doable. Though it's really more efficient to study math from lectures. In both cases a lot of practice is the key to success.

You can't explicitly calculate the sine/cosine of any angle, not even for rational products of pi. You can get pretty far, but you won't get there exactly.
For example it's possible to find the cos(x/2) if cos(x) is known. cos(x/3) may be possible, but in any case cos(x/5) or cos(x/7) do not have an explicit identity because they require you to find the roots of a respectively fifth and seventh degree polynomial, for which a formula in terms of elementary functions does not exist. And even if it does exist in the case of those formulas (although I'm pretty sure it doesn't), then it sure won't exist for an arbitrarily large prime number like cos(x/739). In order to calculate the cosine of any rational angle, you have to be able to get from the cosine of an angle you can derive geometrically to your angle of choice trigonometrically. This would require half/third/nth angle formulas of the prime factorization of the denominator of the ratio of pi of the angle you're trying to cosine from, which is not always possible as I just illustrated.

No, that paper did not seem abstract at all. It seemed more like someone tried to explain something really fundamental and philosophical using mathematical definitions, the result being either trivial or not useable. In any case, from reading the abstract I did not have a clear idea of what the paper was about at all, and furthermore when skimming through the paper I saw the author use the word 'I' several times. This means it's probably not a well written paper, and hence not really worth my time.

Her voice is quite nice

What was the program that you guys used that wrote out the formulas again?

Shingeki no Kyojin Episode 3 Question (Click to show)

In ep. 3, Eren masters the 3D Maneuver Gear at the end of the episode. They made it seem that balancing on a faulty strap was a big deal. I wonder if other people can still balance on a broken strap as well.

Speaking of the strap, what exactly does it do? Is there some sort of counterweight in it or something? I don't see how a broken strap can significantly alter the balance of someone unless the strap was at a weird angle or something.

I've never used one of those belts so I wouldn't know

Witcher 1

HDMI Cables

USB HDD Dock

are all free after rebate and are really the only interesting things I see

U.S only.

I bought the Witcher 1 and HDD Dock

LaTeX.

It's a PITA to learn at first though. Once you get the hang of it, it's quite useful and fun to work with.

I don't even want to deal with it right now

Thanks, i'll just go dig a hole and wait for the day the prof announces it

I have always thought she is quite versatile

She can use a voice deep enough to cast as male, and her female roles are in general, very well done

Calling that "mastering" is an understatement. That's only the balancing aspect, not the high-flying spiderman part. The mangaka does a good job explaining (a.k.a. handwaving in a good, not-lazy manner) how it works, so I would assume that they would work it into the commercial break screens. More than that, that episode shows how insecure Eren is when there's a chance that he's going to fail.

True true. I meant "mastering" as in passing the balancing trial at the end of the end of the episode.

And that makes sense for making the anime. I guess I'll have to wait and see how the Maneuver Gear works since I don't have too much time to read the manga. :p

Yup, from what I've seen so far, Eren seems like he loses confidence when something goes wrong, or not-as-expected.

Speaking of LaTeX, I was trying to do a homework assignment with it last night but I couldn't figure out the errors so I just moved on back to msword.

LaTeX Code (Click to show)

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{geometry}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}

\pagestyle{fancy}
\lhead{My name goes here\\My student number goes here}
\cfoot{Page \thepage\ of \pageref{LastPage}}

\begin{document}
1. Since the material my friend's company has developed is specifically for treatment of sports related injuries, the material demonstrating a stress-strain curve similar to rat tail collagen should be used. Rat tail collagen exhibits a stress-strain behavior more closely associated with muscle since there is a high amount of collagen relative to elastin and thus the material is much stiffer and is able to take a larger load without deforming a significant amount. A higher collagen density is characteristic for deep fascia where the muscles are.\\
2. \\
3.

Fuuuuuu I just realised I only needed to put: \end{document}

T_T I feel stupid now

How do I get the total page number at the bottom of the document instead of "??"?

maybe?

Pony sex is fine though, so your My Little Pony fantasies won't get you in trouble.
