This is a list of events held and scheduled by the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), a mixed martial arts promotion based in the United States. UFC's first event, UFC 1, took place on November 12, 1993. Each UFC event contains several fights. Traditionally, every event starts off with a preliminary card followed by a main card, with the last fight being known as the main event.
For this problem,
Does anybody please know how events can be separated by time in one frame and distance in another? This notation does not seem physically correct to me.
Thanks!
Is there a formula for this ?
Consider the following simple looking problem.
We have three contestants A, B and C, there is a competition between them and the best wins.
For example a race, discus throw, javelin throw ...
We know that A beats B with a probability 0.6, A beats C with a...

Exercise:
My solutions:
For events to be simultaneous, the invariant interval must be bigger than zero (spacelike). I got $$I = -c^2 \Delta t^2 + \Delta x^2 + \Delta y^2 + \Delta z^2 = -(0-1)^2 + (0-2)^2 + (0-0)^2 + (0-0)^2 = -1 + 4 = 3 >0$$. Which is indeed greater than zero, to find the...

From my limited understanding the Galilean transform has 2 frames but 4 four perspectives. For example x is the stationary frame when using
## ∆x = ∆x′ + v ∆t ## and x' is moving. When using ## ∆x' = ∆x - v ∆t ## and x' is stationary and x is moving.
Now lets use the example of ## ∆x = ∆x′ + v...
I read that the gravitational tidal force of a nearby blackhole can twist and tear apart stars, sometimes even in a matter of days. The 'matter of days' part peaked my interest, and I figured I would ask here before looking it up. Have we ever observed any such event in a matter of days? Is...
Hi, I'm having trouble understanding that for time-like events where the order of time is absolute, these events can be in different spatial orders depending on reference frame. Can someone provide an example please?
Thank you!
There are 4 players numbered 1 to 4. There is a room with an entrance door to one side and exit door to opposite side. Inside the room, there are 4 boxes numbered 1 to 4. Inside each box, there is a chit containing a number (with equal probability) from 1 to 4 (inclusive). No two chits can have...
I apologise for my very limited understanding of quantum physics: my background is in General Relativity. A wave function is said to represent the probability of a particle being at some point in space/time, and I take that to mean that the probability of a quantum event is a density on...
Hi!
I was wondering if there was an equation to plug in a standard deviation value and get back approximately the percent likely hood of getting that sigma (for example 1 sigma would be 33%, 3 sigma 0.27%, etc).
Just something that approximates it with algebra, no calculus
Thanks!

Let's say we have 3 events that all have a certain chance of occurring. Each latter event occurring depends on if the prior event occurred based on the chance associated with it. For example, if Event #1 does not happen, Event #2 cannot happen. As such, if Event #2 doesn't happen, Event #3...
Below is my attempt at the problem. I used the distributive law and applied to what was given, (A∪B)∪Z which equates to (A∪Z)∩(B∪Z). I then applied the 2 set I/E formula to each union. Since there is an intersection between these two sets I added them.
But I end up with 2 P(Z) which doesn't...

Hey! :giggle:
Give a probability space and events $A$, $B$ and $C$ such that $P [C \mid A]>P [C \mid A \cup B]$.So we want that $$\frac{P[C\cap A]}{P[A]}>\frac{P[C\cap (A\cup B)]}{P[A\cup B]}=\frac{P[(C\cap A)\cup (C\cap B)]}{P[A\cup B]}$$ But how can we find these events ? :unsure:
Hi,
If the events A and B are statically dependent then the following formulas are used to calculate conditional probability and joint probability but there is a problem. As I see it both formulas are dependent upon each other. One cannot calculate conditional probability without first...
In Richard Feynman's book "The Strange Theory of Light and Matter", in chapter 2, he explains how to calculate the probability that light from some source will be reflected by a mirror and be detected at some location. He explains how you sum up all of the probability amplitudes (represented...

Let's say you have a leaking tab, and the probability of a droplet in any given second is 1%, regardless of whether there was a drop previously.
How would you calculate the probability of n drops in a minute?
No drops in a second is 0.99, so no drops over a minute is 0.99^60. Hence one or more...

Hi, I’m looking for ideas and guidance (maybe even formulas?) on making an on-planet situation match a hypothetical solar system. It’s for a fantasy role-playing, but the sentient species must necessarily care (and believably calculate) aspects about their solar system. (However, because it’s...
(1) Uniformly moving frames
I begin with a drawing of the situation. The events are labelled as ##\color{red}{E_1}## and ##\color{red}{E_2}##. We note the time of those events : ##t_1 = t'_1 = 30s## and ##t_2 = t_2' = 30+60 = 90s##.
I attempt the problem in two different ways.

Hi,
in general relativity I'm aware of the spacetime 'distance' between two timelike related events is maximized by the free falling timelike path (zero proper acceleration) joining them.
Consider now a couple of events belonging to a spacelike hypersurface (AFAIK it is an hypersurface with...
The problem is;
You are designing an experiment to search for a new particle. Based on some model, the number of expected signal events is estimated to be 10. In order to claim the signal with the confidence level of 3σ (or 5σ), how small the expected number of background events should be?

The levels range from level -n to level n. When it reaches level -n or level n, it resets...
Firstly, I calculated the relative speed between the two rockets, finding v=1.6c/1.64. Then, I applied the length contraction: the length of the moving rocket will be 0.6L due to this phenomena, so the total distance traveled by one rocket, with respect to the the other, will be 1.6L. Therefore...

Hello everyone.
Let us consider 3 events A,B,C such that: $$P((A \cap B )\cup C)=P(A)*P(B)*P(C)$$ Notice that the second term is a union and not an intersection. Are they independent? And what if the assumption was: $$P(A \cap( B \cup C))=P(A)*P(B)*P(C)$$? I know that the independence condition...
Hello,
Sorry if this is the wrong section of the forums, but I figured that questions about mutually exclusive events are relevant to probability.
My current understanding:
Two events are mutually exclusive if both events cannot occur at the same time. In other words, two events are mutually...

I have six events with known probabilities ##p_1, ..., p_6##. Find the probability of two or more of these events occurring together? I can't think of a clever way to calculate this without using the problematic "or" is addition rule, but using that rule I get the required probability is

The dude in this video appears to say that "space" (ie a coordinate system that does not involve time ) describes where an event happened but not when. To describe when and where an event happened you need both space and time
so if I don't care "when" an event took place, only "where"...
