Hello everyone,
I don't know if that's the correct place to ask this (didn't want to pollute the science and math textbooks recommendations), sorry if it is not.
I have undergraduate physics and mathematics textbooks that I am trying to sell. I live in Belgium and I bought textbooks...
Thank you very much to you all for the valuable information, that's exactly what I was looking for.
I am highly motivated to learn the maths needed as long as it is not too abstract.
Thanks again.
Hi,
I know there are plenty of books on the subject. That's why I am looking for advice for books which do not require a strong mathematical background and would still be good to get knowledge and intuitions on the required maths for ML.
If I search "calculus" on google books, I get Spivak's...
Hi everyone,
I am a software developer (bachelor's degree in Europe, different than a bachelor's degree in the US I believe) and I don't have a strong math/physics background but I am willing to learn.
For a few years now, I have been really interested in machine learning but until now, I only...
At the end of the day, they are your notes so only you can decide what you do with them. I don't see how there could be an ethic problem here. You don't need to babysit people, they will suffer from their laziness later on or they won't. :)
You don't want to share your notes, that's your choice...
To the people who don't want to share their neat work, what do you gain from that ? (honest and totally not aggressive question :) )
The extra work you do is for you because you want it and need it to strengthen your understanding of the material. I honestly don't understand why you would have...
For me, it depends if they want to make manual copies of your work or if they just want to photocopy them.
To make manual copies take time and they risk losing your work so for me, it is definitely a 'no'. If they just want to use a copy machine and give me back my work directly, I don't see...
I know that my acceleration vector for the moving vehicle is parallel to the inclined plane. I can use the angle alpha to break it into x and y components. For the y component (that's the one I need for the vertical acceleration), I get g * sin2(alpha) * (M/m + 1)
If I look at the forces acting...
No, only the gravitational force acting on m + the vertical acceleration that m has (other than g).
So I have my acceleration to the right parallel to the inclined plane, I should find the total acceleration perpendicular to the horizontal plane for m.
Hi,
I have some troubles to understand the next step for the solution. If you need more informations, please let me know.
1. Homework Statement
A moving vehicle of mass M is moving down an inclined plane of angle alpha with respect to the horizontal plane. What is the force indicated on the...
x must be equal to b or -b for the inequality to be equal to zero. But what about the inequality lower than 0? I can try to guess values of x to get a result lower than 0 like if x < b, then I get a product < 0.
So the possible values for x to to satisfy this inequality are b, -b and x < b. All...
Hi !
at the moment, I have big troubles to solve exercices for my analysis homework. This is not a problem with an exercise in particular, it really is about how to solve things. I just started a bachelor's degree in physics and I have no mathematical maturity. I can easily use mathematics to...
My options are limited because of money and location, and there is no engineering physics where I live.
I don't mind programming, I actually like it, I am just very picky in what I like in programming. I would like my skills in software development to be used as tools, I don't want to get paid...
Hello PF !
I am going back to school in September to start a bachelor degree in Physics in a university in Europe (I already have a degree in software dev).
I absolutely love using physics and maths to solve problems but I am not sure if I want to be an engineer or a physicist.
If I decide to...
Well, I hope it is not too late to start. I am a 27 years old software developer and I will go back to school next months to start a degree in Physics (BSc).
Good luck ! :)
She wants to get a PhD in Astrophysics ?
The best way to do that is to get a BSc in Physics and a MSc in Physics or Astrophysics if she has that possibility.
Have a look at this suggestion : http://stackoverflow.com/questions/388242/the-definitive-c-book-guide-and-list
Bjarne Stroustrup's book is a must have too but probably not the best book if you never programmed before.
I would suggest something else.
Paul Online notes are awesome : http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/ You can find Algebra, Calculus I, II, III and differential equations. For the trigonometry, Paul Dawkins doesn't have great ressource on this topic, there is just a small chapter but that's not...
At the moment, I am trying to find if the suggestions in this thread match what I need.

I am somewhat in the same situation. Assuming that everything goes as planned, I will get a PhD in Condensed Matter Physics whem I am 35 years old. Retirement is not a big concern since I live in Europe. I have no family to take care of at the moment.
It seems that Condensed Matter Physics...
Hello PF !
I am going to start a bachelor's degree in physics in September. I am looking for an introductory textbook on Chemistry. The university is new in Europe and we don't seem to have specific textbooks to buy. We have more like recommended textbooks.
Here is the objective and the topics...
