# What is Explicit: Definition and 147 Discussions

Implicit atheism and explicit atheism are types of atheism. In George H. Smith's Atheism: The Case Against God, "implicit atheism" is defined as "the absence of theistic belief without a conscious rejection of it", while "explicit atheism" is "the absence of theistic belief due to a conscious rejection of it". Explicit atheists have considered the idea of deities and have rejected belief that any exist. Implicit atheists, though they do not themselves maintain a belief in a god or gods, have not rejected the notion or have not considered it further.

4. ### A Explicit non-holonomic equations of motion

In the holonomic case, we can put the Lagrangian in the Lagrange equations to obtain the explicit form of the equations of motion. From Greenwood's classical dynamics book, the equations are Are there such general equations for the non-holonomic case?

6. ### I Writing down an explicit homotopy

I understand that a homotopy is a continuous deformation. The only thing I really remember is something in my notes like this: F(s, 0) = a(s) for 0≤s≤1 and F(s, 1) = a * Id(s). Basically I have to construct some sort of piece-wise function such that I go something like two loops half of the time...
7. ### I Partial differentiation and explicit functions

Hi For a function f ( x , t ) = 6x + g( t ) where g( t ) is an arbitrary function of t ; then is it correct to say that f ( x , t ) is not an explicit function of t ? For the above function is it also correct that ∂f/∂t = 0 because f is not an explicit function of t ? Thanks
8. ### B Explicit expression for ideal membership

Derive an explicit expression for all ##f\in\langle q\rangle\subseteq \mathbb{Q}[x]##. I think it's doable and was wondering if there is a published formula?
9. ### Error in ANSYS Explicit Dynamics

I am tring to simulate impact of cricket ball on a bat. Whenever I try to simulate with custom materials it shows an error like 'Solver initialization failed. See the log file.' But when I carry out with steel as the material it works fine. Please help.
10. ### What could be some future developments of Explicit Finite Method?

Hello everyone, I have to submit an assignment by Monday and there is only one part of the assignment missing, which is future developments of the Explicit Finite Difference Method. However, I can not do it because I really do not know what exactly he is asking me for on there. Could someone...

12. ### I What does it mean for a Lagrangian to have "explicit" time dependence?

Suppose I had a Lagrangian $$L = q+ \dot{q}^2 + t.$$ This has explicit time dependence. Now consider another Lagrangian: $$L = q+ \dot{q}^2 .$$ Which has no explicit time dependence. But after solving for the equations of motion, I get $$\dot{q} = t/2 + C.$$ So I could now write my Lagrangian...

b_{k} = b_{k - 1}/2 +b_{k-1} b_{0} = 1 What would be the sequence for this expression, I calculated it to be 1, 2/3, 2/5, 2/7 ... Is it right? My explicit formula is b_{n} = 2/n+2 What would be the explicit formula in your view and how can that formula be proved by mathematical...
14. ### I Determining the covariance of two parameters given their explicit relationship

I am wondering if it is possible to determine the covariance, ##\text{Cov}(a,b)##, of two fitted parameters given I know their explicit relationship ##a=a(b)##? I would like to construct the covariance matrix in the space of the parameters ##\left\{a,b\right\}##. Using the relationship...

46. ### MHB Need reassurance on "implicit" and "explicit" form

When dealing with this separable equation for example, if I'm told to solve the given D.E. $y' = x^2/y$ so after manipulation and taking the integral I got $\frac{y^2}{2} = \frac{x^3}{3} + C$ This is the implicit form correct? Would the explicit form be $y = \sqrt{\frac{2}{3} x^3 + C}$
