    How useful would an equation finder be ?

    you got x, y pairs from somewhere (maybe an experiment) and plug into program and pops up a simple equation that best models the pairs (e.g. y = e^x) and curve fitted as well. The reason I'm asking is cause I made such a program, and want to know if such a thing is useful to others.

    Ax = b when b = [0; 0; 0; 0]

    Homework Statement given z = (0, 0, 0, 1), and v = (0, x, y, z), and the following properties hold v \times u = L L \times v = u u \times L = v v, u, l, and z are unit quaternions In other words; we define forward (v), up (u) and right(L), find a unit quaternion that when you apply...

    DE of the form y'' + by' = a

    Hi, I'm trying to solve the following equation y'' + by' = a But my answer doesn't make sense: The question: an object is flying through space, with velocity could be approximated as: v_next = v_current + a*dt - damp*v*dt dt - time increment taken repetitively a - acceleration damp - a...
