Hi all, I am having some troubles deriving the truth table of the following: I don't understand how does one gets to the highlight parts. For example, 10 10, when the carry is low, shouldn't the output be 0 0 1? I fully understand how to add if it is a single bit, but now with 2 bits, it is a...
3. ### I How to Bin Data for Spectrum Fitting with Poisson Errors?

Hi! I have some measurements of the rate of a physical process versus energy. For each energy I have a number of counts and a measurement time associated to it. However, the step (in energy) at which the measurements are made is very small and also the measurement time is small, hence just...
