In the Spring of 2014, I graduated with a B.S. in Computer Engineering and a B.S. in Mathematics. I am trying to get into grad school for neuroscience with an application in Brain-Computer Interfacing. Job experience includes cryptanalysis, malware reverse engineering, and neural nets. I'll edit this as I think of something more interesting to put.

comment Do signs printed on the road offer a significant advantage for the user over signs on a post?
@Bluewater, for exactly the same reason, the user needs to see the label first. The speed limit is the part the user needs to see. After seeing 25, you see MPH and know exactly what you should be doing. After seeing the label, you see the input field and know exactly what you should do with it.

comment Are over 20 of the US Navy SEALs who killed Bin Laden now dead?
@reirab, and to anyone who has once held a clearance, losing your clearance or letting it become outdated doesn't absolve that oath. And saying something that gets someone killed is saying something that gets someone killed. It may not be treason or premeditated murder, but it is something.

@JanVladimirMostert, IANAL, it wouldn't technically be public domain, but unless you've sworn to protect classified information, you're probably "safe" to repeat it. However, you can still be held responsible if your repeating it becomes a problem, even if it is already on Wikileaks. If you think information might put people at risk, don't share it. Information about the identities of those involved in Operation Neptune Spear WILL put those people in potential mortal danger. TS and above classifications are supposed to only be used to save lives (in the US), sometimes they do just that.

However, word problems like that will never appear in the real world. You are right to say you won't solve algebra problems to find out a speed limit. That's Monty Python levels of silly, even.

... Just because you're not solving math equations, doesn't mean you aren't doing math. Math is more than algebra, and in fact, everything in this question is math directly applied to a real world question. Generally, someone else has done the math for you, such as speed limits which are often decided based on statistics, a form of applied math. However, I was arguing against your choice of wording here, which was improper to convey your meaning. And that's not math. That's English.

@grkvlt, there is no number divisible by 2, 3 and 17 that is not also divisible by 102, so that isn't a valid counter point (sorry). This is because 2, 3, and 17 are the prime factors of 102, and are all coprime. Yay math!

@ministic2001 Why would you give two sweets each to 18 friends if you didn't have it? You didn't specify you were giving two to each of them, so that makes the assumption make no sense. The 7 sweets short is fine if you say 2 each, but 11 makes more sense with the first two statements before your question, since you wouldn't try to divide more than you had. When you have less than one for everyone, you'd be more likely to say you are short candy.

@Brian, any number that satisfies the original question that isn't zero is also divisible by any number composed of two primes less than or equal to 101, so 101 and 2 which is 202. The answer didn't specify that it couldn't be divisible by anything else, and it would be impossible for it not to be.

The solution to an indefinite integral adds a constant. Mark N's answer as of 22 hours ago includes the limits negative infinity to infinity, making it a definite integral and thus an exact value.

comment CMake 64bit windows generator not working
On my computer, the first configuration used determines the CMAKE_SIZEOF_VOID_P no matter what you set the generator to as long as you use the native compiler option. Deleting the Cache (through the CMake GUI) then deleting the CMakeFiles folder on the top level solved it for me, as it then searches for the native compilers using the new generator. I noticed this solution when I rechecked out code from version control and tried a different generator first, and it worked.
