Maths :)
Them weird ass europeans. :P
Computer Science makes Math useful.
Fourier once said: math is just a set of tools needed to do physics.
Also, thanks to Fourier for making it possible to have the Internet, it's some of his math that makes it possible.Quote:

Seems that we have a State Diagram or an odd life cycle
the . are needed to perserve spaceing

Another great French mathematician, Laplace, didn't agree with Fourier at all. According to Laplace mathematics was a science on it's own with no intention to be a tool for other sciences. Also Laplace did some nice mathematical discoveries that in some way brought us the internet.
the arguement my physics DR used to put forward was matematics is a tool, alone its useless - adapted to real world it is very powerful.
now visit those boards and discuss fibonnacci (sp), fourier transforms and advanced maths algorithms until your heart is content.!
I wish Laplace and Fourier never existed. I would rather live in a cave then learn what they have come up with.
>>fibonnacci (sp), <<
fibonacci - but there's not a lot to discuss (start with the terms 1 and 1, and each successive term should be equal to the sum of the last 2 terms).
well me being dumb and all that made a million posts to answer a simple question (http://www.iainpb.co.uk/forums/uploa...hp?threadid=64). Iain, can't you upgrade your vBoard to allow and edit function for posts?
Someone explain this, Issac Newton invented Calculus to do his Physics. Does this mean Calculus is a product of Physics?
Wouldn't it mean the opposite? That his physics theories were as a result of calculus?
He had the theories in his head and invented Calculus to prove them. His theries would not work with out calculus, but there was no need for the Calculus until he had the theries to prove.Quote:

hey there! That little problem sounds like a question for the mathematics and physics forum over at www.forums.iainpb.com
the friendly folk will be happy to help ;)

Computer Science is something what makes Math interesting(like Physics).
But I donīt have it as Subject at School although Iīve lots of math and physics lessons :( .

>Computer Science is something what makes Math interesting
>(like Physics).
But would physics be interesting without mathematics?
I like math and need it sometimes to do my work or at least understand what I'm doing. Applied mathematics is very useful, though pure mathematics is also very interesting. Some math doesn't have an application yet, but I think that one they it will. Look at number theory, it found an application in cryptography.
