### Re: Taking Maths A Level

I'm not sure what that test is, if it is a test like I'm assuming.

### Re: hmmm... here's a question for ya!

As summer school is in session, and getting to the latter part of it, I am losing the ability to communicate well, lol. I'm actually glad you got involved in the discussion. I will take a book definition over a web article any day. My ability to intelligently discuss C is very limited as I haven't u...

### Re: Quantum Physics

Brian Green wrote some easily accessible books on the subject, The Elegant Universe and the Fabric of the Cosmos. He puts it in simple terms but it still makes my head hurt.

### Re: hmmm... here's a question for ya!

When speaking about mathematics you have to be very careful about how you say things. When you say that f and U both have a square relationship it is true, they could be in a set of functions where that is the parameter. However since I defined f such that f(x)=x^2 the only function that I can think...

### Re: hmmm... here's a question for ya!

I see what you're saying about it being a part of the harmonic function, however U doesn't equal f(x) as I defined f(x) the two are very different functions. Just as x^2 doesnt equal x^3. But you are right in that I am trying to make the point that there are many aspects of mathematics that are comp...

### Re: hmmm... here's a question for ya!

using the supposition that math is invented to describe the laws of nature, i pose this question.

What does f(x) = x^2 describe in nature.

### Re: (USA) Senate Approves Telecom Amnesty

Well it is the government that the people elected. Personally I find it completely atrocious that we have the government we do, but the system the people set up put them in power, so in many ways I feel the country deserves everything it gets. And yes I do vote in the elections, I unfortunately just...

### Re: Proof that God does/doesn't exist.

Argument for God: Proof of God - Intelligent Design What would constitute objective proof of God? Well, consider the following self-evident and universally recognized truth: Concept and design necessitate an intelligent designer. The presence of intelligent design proves the existence of an intelli...

### Re: Proof that God does/doesn't exist.

Given that there are people who will doubt facts on anything even when faced with proof, I would say that when you get into gray areas of little or no proof people take what they feel like as proof. I can say that the fact that the existence of gravity and humanity are proof that a God exists, or I ...

### Re: Interest in Math topics

Calculus is a branch of mathematics that allows people to more accurately calculate what is going on with functions and graphs. It is not simply derivatives and integrals, however those are big parts of it. For me it's hard to relate what it is, beccause it's like asking what algebra is, it's many t...
