Don't post if you don't know what holomorphic means!

Rewrote this to be slightly less shit.

Anyway, welcome to not-halfchan-/sci/, home of actually intelligent and decent discussion. Of course, anarchy tends to prevent this, so we will have to have rules.

1: Religion vs science arguments are prohibited. Take that shit over to >>>/rel/, please. Or, better yet, don't fucking do it.

2: If you're here to ask for help on homework, go to >>>/hwk/.

3: Sources for all facts, okay?

4: Keep topics related to science and mathematics, please. It's the name of the board for a reason.

More can be added if necessary. Again, don't make it necessary.

I move in 8/5/18 and intend to Major in Mathematics, there are four options (Pure, Applied, Applied Stats, Actuarial) which should I formally choose to actually succeed? Should I double major? and if so what in? I'd apprecate the help, I don't want to move in with the parents after school.

Pure: Will give you lots to think about as you flip burgers. If you stick with it though, you can be a rambling mental case that talks to walls.

Applied: Wonderful, but it's a possibility that this could lead you to double majoring in electrical engineering. After all, why not put that math to some good use. After which, you'll join a fintech firm and never do any electrical engineering.

Applied stats: $300k starting, any meme AI job you want. Actuarial:$300k starting, any job you want.

>>5099

That bad huh? I guess I won't do pure or applied, I'd love to do pure but not if I'm gonna have to move back in with the parents. So Actuarial is the best? Wth would I even do with that? Just be an actuary?

> Wth would I even do with that? Just be an actuary?

Pretty much, although it of course would give you lots of options from insurance to finance companies. To be fair though, not many university degrees translate directly into job positions these days (at undergraduate there's what, engineering?), and Pure math looks a lot more impressive than Drama.

If you're interested in cryptography though, pure funnily enough turns out to be the most applied. A double major of pure math and computer science for instance, would be really nice.

>>5102

Would getting an advanced degree also be worth it?

As in grad school? See how undergrad goes first, and what opportunities it presents you afterwards. Of course if you want to pursue a research career, that is essential.

I.Q. is as flawed a metric as the equally cited General intelligence findings. None of this is, of course, corroborated in such a manner that the political and social corollaries found in any racial sciences and their prescriptions on the human condition except as a necessary precondition to what they already projected onto man: a hierarchical disposition of intelligence, affording space to discredit the universalist project. Even were the empirical question of the effective numeration of intelligence be supposed, it does not naturally conceive of the political body that tends to use this as an argument; the scientistic tendencies of the contemporary reactionaries is by equal measure the denial and distancing from science that would eclipse their own foundational empiricism. Unable to effectively foreclose upon the scientific empiricism, except as a fragmented essentialism, and completely distanced from the philosophical contours of his own argument - the contemporary reactionary MUST necessarily lay claim dogmatically to the empiricism of its fragmented thought and assert, antinomically, that it effectively covers the whole of being, though it doesnt and never will

You might want that to be true, but most psychologists will disagree with you. Even though it is appreciably difficult to quantify, IQ is the best explanation for disparity in human development across the globe.

Greetings!

There is a new propulsionless space travel method that is being debated at 4chan in the past 2 weeks, not reaching consensus. Naysayers go for 'it breaks physics', yaysayers go for 'engineering can use physics in non-natural ways'.

Originally starting here: https://www.minds.com/blog/view/845278366950309888 and simplified versions popped up, https://www.minds.com/media/848613401975709696 for example, as the attached image, with emulated proof of the crucial step presented here: https://youtu.be/e6T603au8Wo

The crucial step, whether an open slingshot will move exactly as the closed slingshot if pulled with the same force (regardless of how much rope it coils) by a motor on the pellet, or not. The 'not exactly' version of moving is what proves slingshot theory. These are technological objects that can synchronize motors as needed to achieve the net movement objective. Also, this is NOT a perpetual motion machine, don't be that low of a troll, please.

It may be natural to regard any of the above with skepticism, more so to not even look at them, because why should you? But, this is freaking propulsionless space travel, and it breaks no laws of physics, especially conservation of momentum, which it actually uses to make the work transformations that result in net movement in frictionless environment.

Should 8chan be the first to spark the revolution that is brewing within anonymous, great! Otherwise, others will spark and 8chan will join the chorus.

Cheers!

Copypaste of the last 2 relevant posts there with instructions:

>Mega needs register account, this is easier,

>springs and shells_0000.phz

refined design, tried various spring force and combinations, am having trouble letting them pass through each other while combined, even though they are on different layers, but the ropes get tangled. Maybe the double slingshot is actually easier?

>motors set to toggle, 3 for the pellet, short tug, 1 for the slingshot, hold it until it compacts and is wobbling springs away, and keep holding it, then pull some from the pellet that is forward, until they pass through (untangled?) as the slingshot needs to be forward before releasing and expanding again.

>This works, kinda…

>Replaced the board between slingshot center rope and pellet, with a pretend 3D ring, getting the middle session in a different layer from the 'intersecting' layer, so the rope passes freely between slingshot components. Also detached second pellet as this is demo of horizontal momentum gain from oscillation and the second pellet got in the way.

>Maybe slingshot motors should be commanded separately, to pretend to coil the rope in a balanced way between them?

I’d cut the defence budget in half, re-invest that money into NASA and establishing a straightforward, public healthcare system so free healthcare becomes a human right. I’d make homosexuality and other forms of sexual perversion illegal. All gay related establishments and organizations must be closed. Anyone caught practicing homosexuality would be imprisoned for life.

I’d order an audit of the public education system and find out what areas aren’t working and improve those to make the youth competitive again.

I’d stop any and all contributions to Israel, shut down the embassy and declare that my country no longer recognizes the kike Reich as a country. I would ban all Israeli nationals from entering the country.

I would fine any foreign government whose nationals illegally enter the country. Illegals would be deported at the cost of their nation of origin.

I would only accept immigration from individuals holding college degrees in areas of demand. No more uneducated losers coming over to live on the dole.

I’d make the creation, distribution, promotion and ownership of pornography and related degenerate forms of entertainment illegal. Can’t do much about porn produced in other countries, but I would try, at least to ban porn from the country’s internet through some form of firewall or via ISPs. I’m aware people will still find a way via P2P applications, but it would be as risky as distributing and owning CP.

I’d invest part of the funds saved from the defence budget cut into establishing a network of high speed trains serving all major cities.

I would also offer incentives to cities that don’t yet have subway or light rail systems to develop those and serve the public.

I would invest in several extremely large scale solar farms in the desert of states like Texas and Arizona. I would also invest in nuclear plants in remote areas away from population centres. I would also invest in large hydroelectric power plants in parts of the country that have the Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

What materials do you think would work best to create a rapidly expansive projectile that would harness the heat energy of the initial explosive propellant as a reactant?

Also would it be possible to precisely control the expansion into specific shaped designs, for example going from a super high density bullet the size of a pin needle but expanding to a full sized, normal density bullet upon firing but perhaps with a hollow center, or with flared edges?

The intended application of such technology would be to reduce the size of ammunition, allowing for greater magazine storage (although the weight would obviously be unaffected).

Which features are you measuring to make this conclusion?

If I had to guess, it's because you're probably white instead of black that you came to this conclusion. Because you are white, you notice characteristics that aren't similar to you, as well as the general norm in your culture, so you associate them more with another culture than your own. Simply put, the differences stand out more to you than the similarities.

While in America black and white people will probably view mixed race people as "black", an African would probably feel differently. This seems more of a matter of your cultural context instead of the dominance of genes between races.

The results, i.e. what is known as polynomial theory, or the name, algebra?

000000 No.5012

I'm guessing the thread was meant as a /pol/ circlejerk, but just for fun, let's try to think about it rationally:

First, contribution is a nebulous term. What about all the people who feed, clothe and otherwise care for the scientists, and fund their work with tax money? I know it sounds trite, but for every scientist there are thousands of productive plebs whose economic surplus allows him to exist. In that sense, third world countries contributed immensely, in the form of cheap labor and lucrative, exploitable markets.

Second, historically Arabs have often been weak geopolitically. Their governments did not generate enough surplus to support science, and what little support was available made it unfeasible for native researchers or inventors to compete with western discoveries. There was the one period >>4834 brings up, but that coincided with economic and military dominance, and ended when the West became powerful again. Even today, with all the oil wealth in the middle east, very little of that money goes to science. The richest arabs just play a game of who can build the tallest concrete dick in their shithole sandy cities. But when you take arabs and put them in western institutions, they can be very productive researchers (especially in the area of clock building, kek). So I don't think there's an intrinsic deficit, it's more a cultural thing.

Niggers are probably just retarded though. I don't know when a nigger has ever produced anything of worth, no matter what circumstances. I don't know what their problem is.
