    Convex Function on Many variables on an interval

    Yes you are right in this, sorry I did not stipulate this, x1= a and x2=ma=mx1

    Convex Function on Many variables on an interval

    Homework Statement Show that f(x) = x1x2 is a convex function on [a,ma]T where a \geq 0 and m \geq 1. Homework Equations By definition f is convex iff \forall x,y\in \Re \quad \wedge \quad \forall \lambda :\quad 0\le \lambda \le 1\quad \Rightarrow \quad f\left( \lambda x+(1-\lambda...

    IBM PC XT Ram question

    Not sure you got what im saying. Even if the max was 640kB , on the photo you can clearly see 27 chips each with 256Kbits of DRAM. This would amount to 6912Kbits in total and thus 864KB. From what I can see that board is equipped with more memory than it can handle, or I might be seeing it wrongly.

    IBM PC XT Ram question

    Hi All, i was looking at the IBM PC XT technical reference and it states that the board can take a maximum of 256K of memory. If you look at the schematic you can then see 36 sockets for memory chips and if you see this picture of it...

    Common collector and common emitter

    Hi, im trying to build an amplifier with 2 stages, common collector and common emitter. I biased for midpoint operation in them but i have a gain of only 1, dont know where im going wrong. Thats the circuit, any help is greatly appreciated

    Engineering Collector Current through BJT Circuit

    THanks, I just realised what he did, He assumed Ie=IL and Ib=0 since it is very small.

    Finding reverse saturation current.

    Use the Shockley Diode equation, that should yield an answer.

    Engineering Question regarding introductory circuit analysis

    You could try using the Superposition theorem by first considering one source , then the other, separately, then adding or subtracting the currents as needed.
