1. This denotes the factorial of a number. It is the product of numbers starting from 1 to that number.

Exclamation in Python: $$x!$$ is written as:

x = 5
fact = 1
for i in range(x, 0, -1):
fact = fact * i
print(fact)


it can be shortened as:

import math
math.factorial(x)


and the output is:

# 5*4*3*2*1
120

2. The hat gives the unit vector. This means dividing each component in a vector by it’s length(norm).

Hat in Python: $$\hat{x}$$ is written as:

x = [1, 2, 3]
length = math.sqrt(sum([e**2 for e in x]))
x_hat = [e/length for e in x]


This makes the magnitude of the vector 1 and only keeps the direction:

math.sqrt(sum([e**2 for e in x_hat]))
# 1.0

3. It gives the sum of the products of the corresponding entries of the two sequences of numbers.

Dot Product in Python: $$X.Y$$ is written as:

X = [1, 2, 3]
Y = [4, 5, 6]
dot = sum([i*j for i, j in zip(X, Y)])
# 1*4 + 2*5 + 3*6
# 32

4. It means multiplying the corresponding elements in two tensors. In Python, this would be equivalent to multiplying the corresponding elements in two lists.

Element wise multiplication in Python: $$z=x\odot y$$ is written as:

x = [[1, 2],
[3, 4]]
y = [[2, 2],
[2, 2]]
z = np.multiply(x, y)


and results in:

[[2, 4]],
[[6, 8]]

5. This is basically exchanging the rows and columns.

Transpose in Python: $$X^T$$ is written as:

X = [[1, 2, 3],
[4, 5, 6]]
np.transpose(X)


and results in:

[[1, 4],
[2, 5],
[3, 6]]

6. This denotes a function which takes a domain X and maps it to range Y. In Python, it’s equivalent to taking a pool of values X, doing some operation on it to calculate pool of values Y.

Function in Python: $$f:X \rightarrow Y$$ is written as:

def f(X):
Y = ...
return Y


Using R instead of X or Y means we're dealing with real numbers: $$f:R \rightarrow R$$ then, R^2 means we're dealing with d-dimensional vector of real numbers (in this case, example of d=2 is X = [1,2]

7. This symbol checks if an element is part of a set.

Epilson in Python: $$3 \epsilon X$$ is written as:

X = {1,2,3}
3 in X

8. The norm is used to calculate the magnitude of a vector. In Python, this means squaring each element of an array, summing them and then taking the square root.

Norm of vector in Python (it's like Pythagorean theorem): $$| x|$$ is written as:

x = [1, 2, 3]
math.sqrt(x**2 + x**2 + x**2)

9. This symbol denotes the absolute value of a number i.e. without a sign.

Absolute value in Python: $$|x|$$ is written as:

x = 10
y = -20
abs(x)  #10
abs(y) #20

10. In Python, it is equivalent to looping over a vector from index 0 to index N-1 and multiplying them.

PI in Python is the same as sigma, but you multiply (*) the numbers inside the for loop. $$\prod_{i=1}^Nx^i$$

11. we reuse the sigma notation and divide by the number of elements to get an average.

Average in Python: $$\frac{1}{N}\sum_{i=1}^Nx_i$$ is written as:

x = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
result = 0
N = len(x)
for i in range(n):
result = result + x[i]
average = result / N
print(average)


or it can be shortened:

x = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
result = sum(x) / len(x)

12. In Python, it is equivalent to looping over a vector from index 0 to index N-1

Sigma in Python: $$\sum_{i=1}^Nx_i$$ is written as:

x = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
result = 0
N = len(x)
for i in range(N):
result = result + x[i]
print(result)


or it can be shortened:

x = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
result = sum(x)

13. 2D vectors

2D vectors in Python: $$x_{ij}$$ are written as:

x = [ [10, 20, 30], [40, 50, 60] ]
i = 0
j = 1
print(x[i][j]) # 20

1. This volume of paper should be the same as the coaxial plug of paper on the roll.

Calculating volume of the paper roll: $$\mathbf{Lwt = \pi w(R^2 - r^2)} \~\ L = \text{length of the paper} \ w = \text{width of the paper} \ t = \text{thickness} \ R = \text{outer radius} \ r = \text{inner radius}$$ And that simplifies into a formula for R: $$\color{red} {\bf R = \sqrt{\frac{Lt}{\pi}+r^2}}$$

1. During our lives we learn that numbers are linear, that the spaces between them are all the same. If you count from one to nine, each number is one more than the previous one. If you ask someone what number is halfway between one and nine, they will say five—but only because they have been taught to. Wake up, sheeple! Humans instinctively perceive numbers logarithmically, not linearly. A young child or someone who has not been indoctrinated by education will place three halfway between one and nine.

Logarithmic middle: middle with respect to multiplication rather than addition --> why do we do this by default

1. It would allow end users to determine their own tolerances for different types of speech but make it much easier for most people to avoid the most problematic speech, without silencing anyone entirely or having the platforms themselves make the decisions about who is allowed to speak.

But platforms are making huge decisions about who is allowed to speak. While they're generally allowing everyone to have a voice, they're also very subtly privileging many voices over others. While they're providing space for even the least among us to have a voice, they're making far too many of the worst and most powerful among us logarithmic-ally louder.

It's not broadly obvious, but their algorithms are plainly handing massive megaphones to people who society broadly thinks shouldn't have a voice at all. These megaphones come in the algorithmic amplification of fringe ideas which accelerate them into the broader public discourse toward the aim of these platforms getting more engagement and therefore more eyeballs for their advertising and surveillance capitalism ends.

The issue we ought to be looking at is the dynamic range between people and the messages they're able to send through social platforms.

We could also analogize this to the voting situation in the United States. When we disadvantage the poor, disabled, differently abled, or marginalized people from voting while simultaneously giving the uber-rich outsized influence because of what they're able to buy, we're imposing the same sorts of problems. Social media is just able to do this at an even larger scale and magnify the effects to make their harms more obvious.

If I follow 5,000 people on social media and one of them is a racist-policy-supporting, white nationalist president, those messages will get drowned out because I can only consume so much content. But when the algorithm consistently pushes that content to the top of my feed and attention, it is only going to accelerate it and create more harm. If I get a linear presentation of the content, then I'd have to actively search that content out for it to cause me that sort of harm.

Most of these problems can all fall under the subheading of the problems that result when social media platforms algorithmically push or accelerate content on their platforms. An individual with an extreme view can publish a piece of vile or disruptive content and because it's inflammatory the silos promote it which provides even more eyeballs and the acceleration becomes a positive feedback loop. As a result the social silo benefits from engagement for advertising purposes, but the community and the commons are irreparably harmed.

If this one piece were removed, then the commons would be much healthier, fringe ideas and abuse that are abhorrent to most would be removed, and the broader democratic views of the "masses" (good or bad) would prevail. Without the algorithmic push of fringe ideas, that sort of content would be marginalized in the same way we want our inane content like this morning's coffee or today's lunch marginalized.

To analogize it, we've provided social media machine guns to the most vile and fringe members of our society and the social platforms are helping them drag the rest of us down.

If all ideas and content were provided the same linear, non-promotion we would all be much better off, and we wouldn't have the need for as much human curation.

1. I literally couldn’t remember when I’d last looked at my RSS subscriptions. On the surface, that might seem like a win: Instead of painstakingly curating my own incoming news, I can effortlessly find an endless supply of interesting, worthwhile content that the algorithm finds for me. The problem, of course, is that the algorithm isn’t neutral: It’s the embodiment of Facebook and Twitter’s technology, data analysis, and most crucial, business model. By relying on the algorithm, instead of on tags and RSS, I’m letting an army of web developers, business strategists, data scientists, and advertisers determine what gets my attention. I’m leaving myself vulnerable to misinformation, and manipulation, and giving up my power of self-determination.

In the case of vectors: What is the set of vectors that can result bystarting with a small set of vectors, and adding them to each other andscaling them? This results in a vector space

1. “It sure smells like the prescreening provisions of the FCRA,” Reidenberg told The Intercept. “From a functional point of view, what they’re doing is filtering Facebook users on creditworthiness criteria and potentially escaping the application of the FCRA.”
2. In an initial conversation with a Facebook spokesperson, they stated that the company does “not provide creditworthiness services, nor is that a feature of Actionable Insights.” When asked if Actionable Insights facilitates the targeting of ads on the basis of creditworthiness, the spokesperson replied, “No, there isn’t an instance where this is used.” It’s difficult to reconcile this claim with the fact that Facebook’s own promotional materials tout how Actionable Insights can enable a company to do exactly this. Asked about this apparent inconsistency between what Facebook tells advertising partners and what it told The Intercept, the company declined to discuss the matter on the record,

1. A 2015 clip about vaccination from iHealthTube.com, a “natural health” YouTube channel, is one of the videos that now sports a small gray box.

Does this box appear on the video itself? Apparently not...

Examples:

But nothing on the embedded version:

A screengrab of what this looks like: 2. YouTube doesn’t give an exact recipe for virality. But in the race to one billion hours, a formula emerged: Outrage equals attention.

Talk radio has had this formula for years and they've almost had to use it to drive any listenership as people left radio for television and other media.

I can still remember the different "loudness" level of talk between Bill O'Reilly's primetime show on Fox News and the louder level on his radio show.

3. When Wojcicki took over, in 2014, YouTube was a third of the way to the goal, she recalled in investor John Doerr’s 2018 book Measure What Matters.“They thought it would break the internet! But it seemed to me that such a clear and measurable objective would energize people, and I cheered them on,” Wojcicki told Doerr. “The billion hours of daily watch time gave our tech people a North Star.” By October, 2016, YouTube hit its goal.

Obviously they took the easy route. You may need to measure what matters, but getting to that goal by any means necessary or using indefensible shortcuts is the fallacy here. They could have had that North Star, but it's the means they used by which to reach it that were wrong.

This is another great example of tech ignoring basic ethics to get to a monetary goal. (Another good one is Marc Zuckerberg's "connecting people" mantra when what he should be is "connecting people for good" or "creating positive connections".

4. The conundrum isn’t just that videos questioning the moon landing or the efficacy of vaccines are on YouTube. The massive “library,” generated by users with little editorial oversight, is bound to have untrue nonsense. Instead, YouTube’s problem is that it allows the nonsense to flourish. And, in some cases, through its powerful artificial intelligence system, it even provides the fuel that lets it spread.#lazy-img-336042387:before{padding-top:66.68334167083543%;}

This is a great summation of the issue.

This is constructed by concatenating the digits of the positive integers. (Can you see the pattern?) Special values of the zeta function, such as zeta (3). (Transcendental functions can usually be expected to give transcendental results at rational points.) ln(2). Hilbert's number, 2(sqrt 2 ). (This is called Hilbert's number because the proof of whether or not it is transcendental was one of Hilbert's famous problems. In fact, according to the Gelfond-Schneider theorem, any number of the form ab is transcendental where a and b are algebraic (a ne 0, a ne 1 ) and b is not a rational number. Many trigonometric or hyperbolic functions of non-zero algebraic numbers are transcendental.) epi pie (Not proven to be transcendental, but generally believed to be by mathematicians.) Morse-Thue's number, 0.01101001 ... ii = 0.207879576... (Here i is the imaginary number sqrt(-1). Isn't this a real beauty? How many people have actually considered rasing i to the i power? If a is algebraic and b is algebraic but irrational then ab is transcendental. Since i is algebraic but irrational, the theorem applies. Note also: ii is equal to e(- pi / 2 ) and several other values. Consider ii = e(i log i ) = e( i times i pi / 2 ) . Since log is multivalued, there are other possible values for ii. Here is how you can compute the value of ii = 0.207879576... 1. Since e^(ix) = Cos x + i Sin x, then let x = Pi/2. 2. Then e^(iPi/2) = i = Cos Pi/2 + i Sin Pi/2; since Cos Pi/2 = Cos 90 deg. = 0. But Sin 90 = 1 and i Sin 90 deg. = (i)*(1) = i. 3. Therefore e^(iPi/2) = i. 4. Take the ith power of both sides, the right side being i^i and the left side = [e^(iPi/2)]^i = e^(-Pi/2). 5. Therefore i^i = e^(-Pi/2) = .207879576... Feigenbaum numbers, e.g. 4.669 ... . (These are related to properties of dynamical systems with period-doubling. The ratio of successive differences between period-doubling bifurcation parameters approaches the number 4.669 ... , and it has been discovered in many physical systems before they enter the chaotic regime. It has not been proven to be transcendental, but is generally believed to be.)

Она даст основу для понимания (а в дальнейшем и самостоятельного построения!) логических рассуждений. С нее же начнется и понимание теории множеств, лежащей в основе современной математики.Охватить больше разделов математики поможет книга Рихарда Куранта и Герберта Роббинса «Что такое математика?». Как и книгу Верещагина и Шеня, эту книгу нужно читать внимательно, делая все упражнения. Если первые две книги окажутся сложными, можете начать с моей «Математики для гуманитариев». Ее также следует читать с самого начала, страницу за страницей, не стоит браться за чтение с середины. Она не очень простая, но предварительных сведений и математической культуры не предполагает.Чтобы понять, каким образом математика входит в нашу жизнь, можно прочитать «Кому нужна математика?» Андрея Райгородского и Нелли Литвак или «Математическую составляющую» (сборник сюжетов под редакцией Николая Андреева).

1. Having low scores posted for all coworkers to see was “very embarrassing,” said Steph Buja, who recently left her job as a server at a Chili’s in Massachusetts. But that’s not the only way customers — perhaps inadvertently — use the tablets to humiliate waitstaff. One diner at Buja’s Chili’s used Ziosk to comment, “our waitress has small boobs.”According to other servers working in Ziosk environments, this isn’t a rare occurrence.

This is outright sexual harrassment and appears to be actively creating a hostile work environment. I could easily see a class action against large chains and/or against the app maker themselves. Aggregating the data and using it in a smart way is fine, but I suspect no one in the chain is actively thinking about what they're doing, they're just selling an idea down the line.

The maker of the app should be doing a far better job of filtering this kind of crap out and aggregating the data in a smarter way and providing a better output since the major chains they're selling it to don't seem to be capable of processing and disseminating what they're collecting.

2. Systems like Ziosk and Presto allow customers to channel frustrations that would otherwise end up on public platforms like Yelp — which can make or break a restaurant — into a closed system that the restaurant controls.

I like that they're trying to own and control their own data, but it seems like they've relied on a third party company to do most of the thinking for them and they're not actually using the data they're gathering in the proper ways. This is just painfully deplorable.

Let’s use some common units as examples: gram (g), erg (erg), and solar mass per cubic megaparsec (Msun / Mpc33^3). g is an atomic, CGS base unit, erg is an atomic unit in CGS, but is not a base unit, and Msun/Mpc33^3 is a combination of atomic units, which are not in CGS, and one of them even has an SI prefix. The dimensions of g are mass and the cgs factor is 1. The dimensions of erg are mass * length$^2$ * time−2−2^{-2} and the cgs factor is 1. The dimensions of Msun/Mpc33^3 are mass / length33^3 and the cgs factor is about 6.8e-41.

1. Sunil Singh asks us to stop promoting mathematics based on its current applications in business and science. Math is an art that should be enjoyed for its own sake.

This reminded me of A Mathematician's Lament by Paul Lockhart. This is a 25-page essay which was later worked into a 140-page book. (And Sunil Singh has read at least one of them. He credits Lockhart in one of the replies.)

It also reminds me of this article on the history of Gaussian elimination and the birth of matrix algebra. Newton's algebra text included instructions for solving systems of equations -- but it didn't have much practical use until later. (Silly word problems are as old as mathematics.)

1. New property of prime numbers discovered. Primes greater than 5 can end with 1, 3, 7, or 9. The next prime is less likely to end with the same digit, and biased toward one of the remaining three. For instance, a prime ending in 3 is most likely to be followed by a prime ending in 9. The bias evens out as the primes get larger, but only very slowly.

1. P(B|E) = P(B) X P(E|B) / P(E), with P standing for probability, B for belief and E for evidence. P(B) is the probability that B is true, and P(E) is the probability that E is true. P(B|E) means the probability of B if E is true, and P(E|B) is the probability of E if B is true.
2. The probability that a belief is true given new evidence equals the probability that the belief is true regardless of that evidence times the probability that the evidence is true given that the belief is true divided by the probability that the evidence is true regardless of whether the belief is true. Got that?

1. A function like f(x,y)=x+y is a function of two variables. It takes an element of R2, like (2,1), and gives a value that is a real number (i.e., an element of R), like f(2,1)=3. Since f maps R2 to R, we write f:R2→R. We can also use this “mapping” notation to define the actual function. We could define the above f(x,y) by writing f:(x,y)↦x+y. To contrast a simple real number with a vector, we refer to the real number as a scalar. Hence, we can refer to f:R2→R as a scalar-valued function of two variables or even just say it is a real-valued function of two variables. Everything works the same for scalar valued functions of three or more variables. For example, f(x,y,z), which we can write f:R3→R, is a scalar-valued function of three variables.

f:R^2 \rightarrow R demek f(x,y)=z | Skalar-Değerli f f:R \rightarrow R^2 demek f(x)=(y,z) | VektörelDeğ f

2. f:R→R as a shorthand way of expressing that f is a function from R onto R.

1. A computable Dedekind cut is a computable function which when provided with a rational number as input returns or ,

This definition of computable Dedekind cut is wrong. The correct definition is that the lower and the upper cut be computably enumerable.
