    Diamond based CPU's

    This, if it is true, is very exciting! Do you have any more information on this?

    Diamond based CPU's

    I don't know anything about this...but I do know that a transistor has been made from diamond doped with boron. The latest news I found regarding diamond transistors: http://www.physorg.com/news158946763.html http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/1044396/-diamond-transistor-clocks-120ghz

    Diamond based CPU's

    The main advantage in the semiconductor industry, I believe, would be the thermal characteristics. Running a CPU at 81Ghz is very alluring.

    Diamond based CPU's

    No doubt there is some work left on manufacturing silicon wafers...but theoretically, what would stop them from laying out a football field of seed diamonds and building a giant sheet of wafers? I don't think there is a need for a significant amount of development for building a wafer....they...

    Diamond based CPU's

    I disagree that price in manufacturing would be a problem...as it is, prices for chips are mostly for the R&D into the design, then of course operating profit and anything else they can get from the consumer. The same would hold true for diamonds. Think about it...a small seed diamond can be...

    Diamond based CPU's

    So I was looking online at a company called Apollo diamond...they have a method for making diamond called chemical vapor deposition. Essentially, it is a method where a seed diamond is placed in a carbon gas and layer upon layer of carbon atoms are deposited on the seed and the diamond grows...

    Math software

    I am actually already working with source code that plots....so it looks like I will need to add control points to the curve and trap events mouse down, mouse up and mouse move while joining the control points with a spline for the bezier curves...this is doable.

    Math software

    That is awesome. Yes...Bezier curves...that would be ideal. Thank you!

    Math software

    What does this mean? I am looking for software to help me solve a problem...it won't solve it for me. If you don't know a useful answer to the question...how about keeping your useless comments to yourself.

    Math software

    I am looking for math software that will fit a set of points with a cubic spline (or other technique)....then allow the user to change the shape of the curve by dragging it...and continuously fit the curve as the dragging is occurring (or fit the curve after the dragging has stopped). The point...

    Transform triangle

    I figured out how to solve for a7, a8 and a9 by using the constraint x+y+z=1 and solving for 3 equations in 3 unknowns. I found k1=k2=k3=1. I only have 6 equations in 6 unknowns left! Yay!

    Transform triangle

    I am trying to transform a triangle in 3 space with the constraint that z = 1-x-y. At this point I have the following transformation matrix A, and three vector equations: | a1 a2 a3 | A = | a4 a5 a6 | | a7 a8 a9 | A*x1 = k1*y1...
