    Generating functions and Recurrence relations using the Fibonacci sequence

    We're using generating functions, and recurrence relations of homogeneous and non-homogeneous types The mark allocation is 2, 3, 3 and 2 3. The Attempt at a Solution I think I've done the first part correctly. The closed form is in terms of z, right? I get: F(z) = z / (1 - z - z2)...

    SF6 Basic pressure question

    I'm trying to get my head around a concept. We use Industrial Gas cylinders filled with SF6 gas - the gas cylinder is 70-80% liquid and the rest is in a gaseous state. If this is kept at a pressure of approx 40Bar and is passed through a regulator that allows the gas to be filled into a...

    Lockeheed martin experiments with Anti-gravity

    interesting video. The more research I try to do behind this - the more confused I get. Apparently he uses some form of diamagnetic levitation which some say was faked for the documentary. I'm skeptical but I have to admit the video is damn interesting.

    Help me restore to normal sleeping hours!

    I'd suggest you hit the gym one day and exhaust your self physically, grab a not too interesting book, or study hard till 8-10pm. You should be naturally tired. You'll notice your sleep pattern will be fixed in a couple of days.

    Any Other Math / Physics Late Bloomers Here?

    Lol if it makes you feel better - I travelled for a year and changed majors. I graduated at 24 - turning 25. I too felt that I had a lot to catch up on with students younger than me. I spent more time over the holidays to read up on the material before the next semester started. Also, if I...

    I'm a recent EE grad and a I have a month to spare before work. As lazy as this sounds, I'm not too keen on working an odd job, or even tutoring untill work begins. Spent the last few years doing that along with college. I was wondering if I should attempt to go through Griffiths...
