- I have girl problems, someone give me some advice
- Jennypie is hot
- Look how huge I am, I work out. Plz tell me I'm good.
- Po Polsku Ktosz? (whatever the fuk that means..)
- I'm a postwhore.. loolllzz!!!11!!

Get my drift?


hehehe...I go to the COR, they tell me to go back to the PDD. I come to the PDD, they tell me to act CORish

- I have no girl problems since I don't have nor care for one at this point in time.
- Jennypie has a weird nose, though her wit more than makes up for it.
- I work out but I'm not huge. I won't post gay pics for you to judge.
- Poles need a thread because they don't have a sub-forum. Story of their lives.
- I am indeed a postwhore!!!1111eliteandothersuchnonsense

Well, I *made* that part of the problem linear.
Basically, the work could be generalized to yield constraints of any kind, at a cost of more complex notation in the resulting article. As to how that part of the problem was solved: It was a "proof of concept"-implementation to support my paper, so I simply got hold of a Java package that could do that part for me. Of course, getting to know the quirks of the API of the package I got hold of, and making it work with another general purpose linear algebra package and my own classes, turned out to be much more time consuming than had I written the entire thing from scratch myself.
The only thing I did that was remotely interesting from your point of view, was to invent a simple method for eliminating redundant constraints from my set of constraints, as that set was built. It was polynomial in the number of constraints already in the set and exponential in the dimensionality of the constraints. That suited me ok, as the number of constraints were always >>100 and the number of dimensions were <4 in nearly all cases.
Anyway, I did cry out for help quite a few times on specifics on mathematical programming, and apart from some professor who wanted me to buy his book, I didn't get much feedback from usenet. Next time I'll jump at you instead.


Very interesting. I do the opposite: Start spending a lot of time here, and then cool my brain off by drinking beer with my office mate instead of doing research. Come to think of it, you're probably better off with your arrangement.


Ignoring Dupz's post (), I have to ask whether your "proof of concept" was a feasibility or an optimization problem. As for making it linear, you did well. Everything else is much tougher to solve. I'm guessing that the JAVA package you used implemented the Simplex algorithm to solve the problem, although there are tons of pre-solvers out there (open source) that you could have used to remove redundant constraints before solving it, thus sparing you the trouble to create one. And yeah, definitely don't hesitate to ask for help As for my arrangement, I prefer yours

Ahhh but the whole point is that it's not the COR. It is a hybrid (bastard child if you will) of the COR and the PDD. Since most of us are evolutionists, it should be clear that genetic diversity has tangible benefits over inbreeding and organisms that are limited to little or no environmental diversity. As such, the benefits of this cross-breeding should yeild superior offspring. For example:

Trancaholic, that was a very interesting mathematical algorithm that you used for your sensitivity analysis. Now show us your tits!!!

Anywho, happy birthday drug_tito!

First to St. Andrew...When I was there I basically walked the course first just so I could see the whole course and take it all in. I ended up seeing the same 3-4 groups on several holes, and then I cut across from the front side to the back side to see some different players. With the exception of Mickelson, Davis Love III and Vijay Singh, I saw pretty much everyone I wanted to see: Tiger, Nicklaus, Daly, Els, Beem, Weir, Leonard, etc, etc. They were everywhere!


Occ--to answer your question--you can absolutely drink beer at the golf tournament. The best thing about Augusta National is that they haven't raised prices in something like 20 years. I got a club sandwich on the course for $1.50 and a beer for $2. I think 5 of us ate lunch for under $20. For a sporting event, you can't beat that.

Feasibility, I could say. I had mathematical proofs that my approach was going to yield the correct answers, but I find that sometimes when I verify my ideas that way, I let small "mathisms" slip into the pie, and even if my proof is correct, there's defined sets and functions in there which I cannot implement on a computer. So to be really sure, I do the implementation...

Haha. Don't think that anyone of you has been so cruel to me, that I would do that.

Oh, the hangover..my head hurts..and my stomach. And I'm sleepy. I think I'm gonna go to bed at like 9 today...
