    Now this situation can probably be modelled by a series of differential equations which are essentially unsolveable.

    Work done, is in reality, negative, since your memory gradually deteriorates.

    The problem is, I want to keep my holiday work-free.
    DEs are too simple. For this one, you need a Chaos system :s:. So yes, bring on the FRACTALS!!! (Woot? the 2.54th dimension? Are you mad?)

    Since coming to university I've done about two hours worth of work. I've ignored my examples sheets, and missed a good proportion of lectures.

    If you modelled my learning cycle in a DE, then you'd have to stick a big negative constant on the back to simulate me not doing most stuff.

    To the optimist the glass is half full. To the pessimist the glass is half empty. To the Engineer the glass is twice as big as it need be.

    Cool - that's where complexity theory comes in then. I don't think the system is itself purely chaotic, it is in fact, to my knowledge, maintained at the edge of chaos. That is, any pertubation brings about large changes in the system.

    My DEs must have an imaginery / complex parameter in the functions.

    Does anyone know how the mathmo would think of that glass with half something water.

    Patch: to the compsci, the glass has a metastable amount of water.

    Without talking random Maths crap I don't understand, don't worry if you don't learn absolutely everything now. There is a huge amount of stuff and you'll be surprised how much goes in anyway. Do as much as you can and then panic and try to do the rest at Easter. Bin the kidney, everyone does.

    We get to do Complexity theory at some point... frankly, I am not looking forward to anything that's chaotic.

    That's not really what the complexity course teaches. It's to do with the computational difficulty of classes of problems. P, NP, NP-hard, NP-complete, PSPACE, NPSPACE, EXP etc etc.

    It don't remember there being anything to do with 2.45 dimensions or any chaos ********, it's all about trying to derive a polynomial time reduction to 3SAT iirc.

    Question on Moral stand.

    Patch: My supervisor wrote "Ass -> Concl" on the board today. Anyone care to tell the world what he meant by that? :rofl:
    Oh god, it's been a while, Assertion implies Conclusion, it's probably a end case of a proof from L&P or something. Or was it Assertion if (and not only) if Conclusion.

    ppfft, I don't care, it's all theory ****.

    I don't want to learn Complexity Theory :bowling:! I want to do normal nice Vector Calculus kind of maths :bowling:.

    Yeah, it's L&P, assumption implies conclusion. He just wrote down Ass without even realising what he has just written.

    Please, permanent ban after tonight. Please. I will thank you when I pass my exams.
