bouma | L1 norm is ||f||_1 = int(a,b) |f(x)| dx |

TRWBW3 | bouma: k bouma: i think i get what you asked, and makes sense to me, at least over a finite interval |

bouma | we really have no idea what hicks did but, i would say most australian dont believe his treatment is justified |

TRWBW3 | bouma: neither do i, i was just talking about the analogy between the way the iranians are forcing the brits to "confess" and say they are treated well, and what seems like the same thing happening to hicks |

bouma | nothing we can do tho, perhaps our gov could bitch to usa but if your going to make a deal with the devil you may as well profit from it |

TRWBW3 | bouma: just seemed oddly ironic that in the same week the iranians and the americans are showing such parallel behavior bouma: back to your convergence question, what space are these functions over? R? R^n? [0,1]? |

bouma | im given C[a,b] , im assuming just R |

TRWBW3 | bouma: well over R i'm a bit concerned. take for example a sequence f_i(x)=(1/i)*g(x/i) where g(x)=1 on [0,1], 0 elsewhere |

bouma | R[a,b} um somewhere they might actually be measuring the amount our power consumption goes down during "earth hour" so im going to shutdown, could be an interesting stat thanks tho |

TRWBW3 | okay, R[a,b] works. R, not so good, see my example. |

bouma | all the pubs and restaurants in the city are going candle light and led torches, should be an oportuinity for a bit'o fun, nudge nudge pinch pinch |

TRWBW3 | my guess, total consumption will tripple when you count people driving to bars, and all the gasses produced making all the beer they will drink |

bouma | yes but we might get stats on electricty consumption |

TRWBW3 | i guess the astronomers will like it |

bouma | and its potential elasticity if i shutdown my computer of course |

TRWBW3 | k, have fun |

bouma | yeah, wish i had a telescope ta |

macouno | Helo folks |

StyxAlso | hi |

macouno | Stupid question, but I forgot, how do I check whether one number can be divided by another? (I used to know) ;) There's a name for it |

TRWBW3 | division? |

StyxAlso | divisibility, or congruence |

Mulder | a factor ? |

macouno | Hmm well basicly I need to know if the result is an "int" not a "float" |

TRWBW3 | maybe you want % |

macouno | That's it |

StyxAlso | Yeah, mod |

macouno | tModulo |

TRWBW3 | (a % b)=0 <=> b divides a |

macouno | modulo I mean Thanks guys, that's what I was looking for |
