  1. I have decided to go down the path of scientific computing for my CS major and I want to improve my knowledge on the subject. Does anyone know of any free resources available that I can maybe look into? Thank you for your responses.
  2. So java code gets interpreted on the java virtual machine which then get translated to the computers processing instructions through the jvm? But why does java have so much portability? Is the JVM easier to write than a c compiler for the processor? How does that work? Sorry if I am skipping around in learning about computer science. Things are just brought up that I am completely blank on.
  3. OOOOOHH, ok I think I understand now. You want to implement each object as its own separate thing which can be used and implemented in different areas with other classes/objects. All of which come together to form an overall software or program which gets executed in the main/driver class. And you want to maintain this separating principle because it allows for some kind of translatability between classes. Analogous to say not necessarily a function but a physical construction of something. Like building blocks kind of. Except they can be called and implemented differently. A guess I woul
  4. Apologies for the confusion, I meant to say "Black Box" Algorithm implying that the algorithms workings is unknown to the programmer when implementing it. Again sorry bad at English. So what do you mean by data which is dimensional, do you mean like data with more than 1 field or are you referring to vectors in cs language?
  5. I thought this place looked shinier.
  6. cool, thank you for the response. The book is a good read so far, very straight forward. Do you have any books that you could recommend from you time starting off? Before I ask any more questions how do you structure your different classes in Java? by knowing this I can have some reference with how I am learning it in my own study at uni. Also with algorithms in Java I understand that they are instructions, however I am not really sure how they interact with data structures if that makes any sense. Like when implementing an algorithm is it taking data from data structures as an input
  7. I am learning about java programs currently reading Data structure using java by duncan bell when he goes over the basic structure of a java program. In which being at the lowest level is the "record/payload", the next being "data structures" the next being "the application" and finally is the "driver"/"main class." My question is where do algorithms factor into this hierarchy? Would it fit in with data structures? Or would they be at the applications level due to them actually using the data structures. Thank you for your response.
  8. This is both reassuring and disheartening. My biggest problem is that I enjoy how the black box works and want to learn more, but when I look under the hood I get into theory which is boring your right. Its like a never ending game of "ohh a piece of candy" grabs candy and realize it's a grandma mint.
  9. I am having a hard time just understanding data types, let alone getting to the skill level of programming my own libraries. That sounds like a "once I get a complete handle" on it kind of thing.
  10. That is my first time actually hearing about an FPU, ok cool! Learned something new. Ok, I think I got a understanding for it. Thanks for the assist @Sensei
  11. Ok, so those types have no inherent meaning besides just being pixel values on the screen and it all boils down to binary and their operations then if I'm understanding you correctly. Also thank you for the intro explanation which brought it all the way up from the 1s and 0s.
  12. In computer science how do you go from 1's and 0's to the different data types such as int, float, double, Boolean, etc? It is all just an upper level of abstraction? Is is a function at the lower functional hardware level of the computer? Does it somehow deal with the different flags in the hardware/software level boundary(do not know how else to put that)? Thank you for your responses.
  13. there's Kahn academy, they walk you through problems step by step with videos and quizzes to test your understanding.

    here ya go bud. Nice and done like. Read this before posting in Homework Help - Homework Help - Science Forums
  15. ah, thank you for the correction.
