medfly | im learning complex numbers in school and they use a little line above z to say its the opposite, a-ib instead of a+ib |

me22 | conjugate, not opposite |

medfly | ok, im sorry, i just dont study the english terms for everything |

me22 | not a problem |

medfly | so 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? |

TRWBW | conjugate medfly: the complex conjugate is a-ib |

medfly | ok :) |

me22 | medfly: 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 |

medfly | oh.. so im supposed to get the product and then change the sign? |

Kasadkad` | ology: what kind of stuff are you looking at? |

Hikaru79 | Hehe, 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 |

ology | stuff? Googling for anything related to the Fibonacci sequence - specifically related to musical things. |

Hikaru79 | =O That was fast |

action | Kasadkad` shrugs |

Kasadkad` | shrugs |

Olathe | The mathbin help thing covers the expression |

Hikaru79 | But 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 |

ology | Many URL's... |

Kasadkad` | ology: I've been looking at the Fibonacci sequence myself lately |

TRWBW | ology: it doubt there is much more music to it than any other geometric sequence. |

ology | cog: That trout is a couple decades out of date ;) |

Olathe | Is it the nth prime thingy ? |

ology | Kasadkad`: 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. |

TRWBW | ology: that's what i meant |

ology | TRWBW: I'm sorry. I misread what you'd said. oops |

TRWBW | ology: 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 |

ology | heh |

Kasadkad` | It's pretty neat though |

ology | I agree |
