  1. I ask because if you have prove the Riemann Hypothesis as you claim I would be very interested in at least hearing the details of your methods you use in the proof yourself. Also although I am not sure if there are any members on this forum who are researching analytic number theory there are quite a few members who are quite good mathematicians, and could more than likely work through your argument. I am sure there are individual mathematicians working towards proving the Riemann Hypothesis, however, I doubt there are many actively working directly on the problem, an
  2. Yes, but what "natural physical process" does it describe? Is it something along the lines of this?
  3. From my talks with various math professors it seems that many of them -- if not most of them -- ignore most work sent to them on major open problems unless it is immediately clear that the author is aware of current work on this problem, and the work being presented clear states its methodology. So with that I would not expect to hear back from a professor soon, however, to improve your chances of a researcher actually taking the time to read your paper make sure you have a strong title, abstract, and introduction. What are you suggesting is the physical nature of the Riemann z
  4. When using the standard formula for covariance with a sample the statistic is in fact biased due intuitively to the fact that the covariance depends upon the mean, which in turn depends on the sample. To correct this, and form an unbiased statistic we must multiple the standard formula for covariance by [latex]\frac{N}{N-1}[/latex]. This is called Bessel's Correction.
  5. I understand the idea that the opening ceremony, and in fact the Olympics as a whole are meant to transcend conflict, politics, and violence and unify the world through sport. As such I agree with the sentiment that normally the opening ceremony should not be used to commemorate tragic events, and if for nothing else because there are so many that could be rememberer. However, that being said I completely disagree with the IOC's decision not to commemorate those who died in Munich. That is because this tragic massacre occurred at the Olympics, and so is part of the history of games. Those
  6. This video is exactly what I was talking about. Rep. West says something controversial on the campaign trail, and so he then gets a ten minute interview on Fox News. This type of increased media exposure is what I believe has caused his rise to fame, and not that he's is recognizable the media becomes a self fulfilling prophecy since he now gets invites to shows since he is one of the more recognizable representatives.
  7. Hi,

    I have read some of your posts and would appreciate any involvement in our new science

    ,math and philosophy forum.

    We are 100% Not for profit ... All ad revenue will be only used for human development

    we are going to use our forum as a way to bring together the right kind of people to not

    only discuss philosophy, science math but to establish an organiza...

  8. Honestly, the thing I think that has led him to conservative stardom is his ability to say controversial things in ways that start media fire storms surrounding him. I am not saying that conservatives like the crazy things he says -- I would speculate that a majority of conservatives would actually disagree with some of his statements -- but rather by making a spectacle out of himself he draws a lot of media attention, and this high level of media exposure is the major cause of his popularity. I do not have any evidence to support this, but it certainly seems he comes up in a fair number
  9. Had Hitler never existed I have strong feeling that there would still have been some sort of armed conflict in Europe. Germany in the late 1920's and early 1930's was quite a mess in many ways. Politically the Weimar Constitution was I believe in the long term untenable due to its inefficiencies caused by it representation system and how it delegated powers. Economically Germany was unstable, and suffered from numerous set backs and hardships. Socially the Weimar period was very tumultuous in that it was a time during which there were many competing forces trying to shape the culture of th
  10. Moderators are members of this forum just like you and I, and as Cap'n pointed out they are thus subject to all of the forum rules. In addition, SFN has published the moderating policy that all mods follow here. However, your question of whether or not moderators must follow the rules is only really applicable if there have been instances of moderators abusing their powers and breaking the rules. In my experience the moderators here on SFN do a great job, and work very hard to make sure all of their decisions are transparent and impartial. Are their specific instances you can cite wher
  11. I agree that the idea seems ridiculously idiotic since it is just renaming a current institution. However, if it would pacify some of those who are upset about same sex marriage, and at the same time extend equal rights to a portion of the population currently being discriminated against wouldn't it be better than our current situation? I am not sure I agree with your analogy here iNow. In the my idea no one losses and real privileges, and in fact a large portion of the people gain the ability to marry. A more apt analogy would be deciding to paint all the separate water fountai
  12. Why not do away with governments recognizing marriages, and instead simply have them recognize partnerships in whatever form they may be. While this might seem liking playing semantics it appears -- at least to me -- that many of those who oppose same sex marriage do so because to them regardless of the origin of marriage they feel marriage does carry a religious connotation. So by completely removing the government from recognizing marriages people are free to view marriage as they please, but it means that everyone is granted equal status under the law.
  13. Check your math here. [latex]x^{2}-1-3=x^{2}-2[/latex]?
  14. If you really wanted you could read up on something like the Elo Rating System, and try and modify this for your use. Another option that is similar to how some high school sports teams are ranked would be that if [latex]x[/latex] and [latex]y[/latex] are players then the players ranking would satisfy: [latex]P_{x}-P_{y}=\frac{R_{y}}{R_{x}}S_{x}-\frac{R_{x}}{R_{y}}S_{y}[/latex] Where [latex]R_{x}, R_{y}[/latex] are the ratings of their respective teams, and [latex]S_{x}, S_{y}[/latex] are their respective scores. You want to write a program that iteratively finds the players rankings to mi
