### NY Lost Funds

 bouma L1 norm is ||f||_1 = int(a,b) |f(x)| dx TRWBW3 bouma: kbouma: 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 behaviorbouma: 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 statthanks 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 elasticityif i shutdown my computer of course TRWBW3 k, have fun bouma yeah, wish i had a telescopeta 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 meanThanks guys, that's what I was looking for
