    Cardinality/Function Question

    Yes the Euclidean metric. I'm not really interested in differentiability types right now -- just the ones listed (surjective, injective, etc...) Maybe this is the wrong folder to ask -- but the question came to me while studying topology so it seemed appropriate. David

    Cardinality/Function Question

    Function Types: continuous, surjective, injective, bijective, continuous surjective, continuous injective, continuous bijective. Then all of the above -- with each possible type of inverse? What is possible with F:X-->Y where X, Y can be [0,1], (0,1), [0,1), Q, R, N? I certainly don't...

    Hours per Week as Math Ph.D. Student

    Thanks -- I'm figuring I have about 56 hours a week -- if I spend 16 hours for my TA duties, that leaves about 40 for classes and studying. I'm really just trying to count the cost before I jump in because I have wife and kids. Some weeks will probably require more; but that's made up in the...

    Hours per Week as Math Ph.D. Student

    Hi, I asked a question about a week ago -- and didn't receive a response, so I'm trying a perhaps easier question. :) About hour many hours per week should one expect to spend earning a Ph.D. in Mathematics? Thanks, David

    Math Ph.D. Programs (Looking for a Good Fit)

    Thanks, I hadn't thought of that. That will be very helpful. Maybe I'll also include the details in my personal statement. Now, I just need to know what kinds of schools may accept me. David

    Math Ph.D. Programs (Looking for a Good Fit)

    Hi, I am applying to graduate schools this fall, and I could really use some guidance in finding a program that would be a good fit. The way I see it, there are two things I must consider: Applying to programs that may accept me, and applying to programs I would want to attend. :) I attended...

    Programming Languages

    Comparitive Languages I have wife/son/job -- so adding a class beyond what is already required is much more difficult than picking up a book and learning it on my own. I will look into the different language paradigms as many of you have suggested, thank you. From what I understand...

    Programming Languages

    Yes, I'm interested in getting a job! I want to learn whatever I need to learn in the next 2-3 years to do that. Is C# part of the .net stuff?

    Programming Languages

    I am downloading the Dev-C++, thank you all. I will look into some other language paradigms as well. Any other advice? I have a wife and son; when I finish my degree I want to be a very good/marketable programmer. Thank you again.

    Programming Languages

    I am a 2nd year Computer Science student, and would like to do all of my assignments in several different languages. The class is Java, but I would like to also learn: C C++ Visual Basic But I don't know how to get these programs! I see several different versions of each, ranging in...

    Does ABET matter w/ regards to CS?

    Does ABET matter w/ regards to CS? I am trying to decide between Oregon State University and Western Oregon University. OSU's CS program is ABET certified. Also; What Math classes are useful for programming? Thank you.

    How does Computer programming change?

    Knowing it's not about the degree, but what you can do, is very helpful. Thank you. What should I be doing for the next four years to make sure I am a good software engineer? I have a lot of flexibility in adding classes to the required ones.

    How does Computer programming change?

    Also, according to occupational handbook software engineers make a lot more than programmers. Do you start out as programmer and then become a software engineer? Or do you just focus on different things in school. Thanks again.

    How does Computer programming change?

    Thank you so much, So what do I major in? Computer Engineering or Computer Science?

    How does Computer programming change?

    I love computer programming. At least the kind I've done so far. I can stay up all night trying to figure out the solution, because I enjoy it; it's not work. What scares me, is wondering if that love will carry forward to large scale projects, where I am just one of a hundred programmers...
