medflyim learning complex numbers in school and they use a little line above z to say its the opposite, a-ib instead of a+ib
me22conjugate, not opposite
medflyok, im sorry, i just dont study the english terms for everything
me22not a problem
medflyso they want me to prove z1*z2 (both with lines above them) is the same as z1*z2 (with a big continuous line above)
i dont know what it means if theres a continuous line.. whats that?
TRWBWconjugate
medfly: the complex conjugate is a-ib
medflyok :)
me22medfly: conjugate(z1)*conjugate(z2) = conjugate(z1*z2)
the line is just the conjugation operator
of if it's over the whole thing, then it applies to the product
medflyoh.. so im supposed to get the product and then change the sign?
actionology gets overwhelmed looking at all the "coincidences" in the Fibonacci sequence and resolves to just use it to make interesting music (as opposed to algorithmic geek cacophony).

Kasadkad`ology: what kind of stuff are you looking at?
Hikaru79Hehe, can anyone identify this? :) http://www.mathbin.net/9273
Despite how complicated it looks, it represents a pretty elementary idea.
Kasadkad`Sure, it's the partition function
ologystuff? Googling for anything related to the Fibonacci sequence - specifically related to musical things.
Hikaru79=O That was fast
actionKasadkad` shrugs
Kasadkad`shrugs
OlatheThe mathbin help thing covers the expression
Hikaru79But yes, you are correct
Kasadkad`I certainly have no idea how that formula works, but I've seen it before and I have a good memory
ologyMany URL's...
Kasadkad`ology: I've been looking at the Fibonacci sequence myself lately
TRWBWology: it doubt there is much more music to it than any other geometric sequence.
ologycog: That trout is a couple decades out of date ;)
OlatheIs it the nth prime thingy ?
ologyKasadkad`: Very cool. Just curious about number theory things or a specific curiosity, maybe?
TRWBW: There is much more. Beethoven's 5th for instance...
That's mostly about phi, though.
TRWBWology: that's what i meant
ologyTRWBW: I'm sorry. I misread what you'd said. oops
TRWBWology: i wasn't very clear. fib series is mostly just phi^n
Kasadkad`ology: just a homework problem asking about some divisibility properties of Fibonacci numbers, and I got carried away
ologyheh
Kasadkad`It's pretty neat though
ologyI agree
