 TRWBW Cale: yeah, that's waht i mean to say Cale This is the same as doing just one tensor contraction. TRWBW Cale: sure.Cale: i just wanted to make sure the term made the same thing, clearly it's identical usage.Cale: just like taking some function f(x,y):R^2->R and construction g:R->(R->R) such that (g(x))(y)=f(x,y) Cale right _llll_ c(A,C(B,C)) ~ c(BxA,C) :)oops, bad notation Cale Hom(A, Hom(B,C)) ~ Hom(AxB,C) TRWBW _llll_: actually i did some research in currying in non-functional languages, basic blocks, registers, pointers, etc. got a paper out of it. ;) _llll_ you should write Hom(B,C) different to the outer one. i like HOM(B,C) for the internal oneor B^C, possibly Cale C^B _llll_ that tooat some point i decided it should be BxA instead, but i forget why nowsomething to do with bundles Seeb could anybody tell number of combinations for picking a straight flush poker hand (including ace on top)? I know it's 4*10, but that's not explanatory TRWBW Seeb: well break it downSeeb: first pick the suitSeeb: well you know one card, the aceSeeb: how many ways can you pick the retSeeb: multiplySeeb: misread that, but that still holdsSeeb: first pick suit, then pick top card Seeb TRWBW: yeahTRWBW: C(4,1)*... TRWBW Seeb: only special case you might be confusing is 5,4,3,2,aceSeeb: or ace,k,q,j10 Seeb I don't get how you get 4*10 TRWBW Seeb: make sense? for this problem ace can be both 1 or 14, so it's like you had 14 cards Seeb (which is the answer) TRWBW Seeb: how many different top cards can you have?Seeb: that is how many cards can be the top card in a straight?(ignoring suit, let's assume they are all clubs) Seeb 5 to ace <=> 10 different top cards TRWBW k, so where you missing it?that is, yes, why aren't you happy with that? Seeb C(4,1)*10 = 4*10, but uhm, doesn't feel like I picked 5 cards TRWBW Seeb: you didn't. you picked one card actually
