problem: how many congruent regular tetrahedra can be packed around a vertex?
I'm starting to have to tear this crap from the rusty abysses of my mind.
in other news, i got that time series test back, i did pretty okay, which surprised me for how much i was flubbing around at the time.
so this continues my trend: high marks on theory, abysmal on methods. maybe i should try to get a co-major with a department that would get me out of methods.
somebody's teaching an experimental course on "functional data analysis" eg analyzing functional data, which are high dimensional data resulting from discrete, error-contaminated measurements on smooth curves and images etc. uh, i think you mean, "a course on exactly what i want to go on to do after i finish this related project". i'll see what my adviser says, though i think he'll suggest it if he hears about it before i mention it to him. i mean, it's like i said, 'man, if only there were a course about the stuff i was trying to learn by reading papers but not quite getting,' and somebody said, 'sure, i'll totally teach this.'
"Why did the digamma die out?" "There was a stigma!" It's... a terrible pun.
