Let's make a homework help thread!:

I wish I could help. But I can't. What I know about coding you could write on the inside of a matchbook. With a marker. And still read it.

Nope. Keyboard chops, and reading chops, and a complete disdain for whether people like me or not, but no coding skills. Janitor and Eddie make widgets and I use 'em.

Anyone got any tips for studying for Spanish? I am terrible at verb conjugation.

If you are talking about memorizing the verbs, sing them.

I think Galeros means the verb forms. -o -s -t -mus -tis -nt stuff, I think.

Crosspost from Troper Updates:

Name of chapter: "Mongol Eurasia and Its Aftermath"

Questions:
  1. What accounts for the magnitude and speed of the Mongol conquests?
  2. What benefits resulted from the integration if Eurasia in the Mongol Empire?
  3. How did the effect of Mongol rule on Russia and the lands of Islam differ from its effect on East Asia?
  4. In what ways did the Ming Empire continue or discontinue Mongol practices?

I can answer 1 pretty well.

Unlike Western armies, relying on power over speed, the Mongol armies were a fast, organized lot, grouped into groups of a thousand men each.

You could say that they did the Blitzkrieg first.

3) By staying nomadic they didn't deal directly with the Russians even though they had invaded and were in control. With the Islamic countries they were tolerant of there religion even going as far as to convert from Shamanism to Islam.

Hope this helps Wicked.

And to add to number 3...

The proximity of East Asia to the Mongol homelands meant that after Genghis Khan's death, the area over which they had the most control of was China, thus founding Kublai Khan's Yuan dynasty.

Need some verification of Maxwell's first Law of Electromagnetics:

D where D = €o E in free space as written in cartesian coordinates is ∂/∂x(Dx) + ∂/∂y(Dy) + ∂/∂z(Dz), is equal to ρv

That means then that by Gauss' Law:

s D∙dS = Q = ∫volDdv = ∫vol ρvdv

Does the above relation hold true for all cases, including different coordinate systems (i.e. cylindrical and spherical), because admittedly, I haven't quite got the hang of deriving the divergence of functions in cylindrical and spherical coordinate systems.

I think that says that the charge in a volume is the integral of the charge density in a volume, which is obvious. As someone who is basically a pure mathematician, I'm not sure, but that's what it sounds like.

@ Kinkajou: I think Cao Cao did Blitrzkrieg before Ghengis Khan, I remember something about crossing a ridiculous distance in a couple of days just to attack an unprepared city...

But as for the rest of this, I think I am way out of my depth in the education department...

I just need some clarification for this assignment here.

1. Take the Sensory Modality Preference Inventory. (See the included example) http://www.brookhavencollege.edu/learningstyle/modality_test.html

Print a copy and save as a word document. Are you up for a challenge? See how creative you are in your research in finding an additional inventory to send.

2. Explore/research (Internet & books) different Modality Preferences.

3. Using the Landmark Note-Taking style summarize the information.

I've got number one finished, but I don't really understand what Landmark Note-Taking Style is. I've been looking around on Google for a while.

[1] Looks to me like the style is about splitting a piece of paper in half and making a list comparing two sides to an issue. Soooo, you take your primary learning style and your secondary learning style and make a list of how to incorporate the two methods.

I could also be totally full of shit.

@William: What I mean to say is, how can I show that the relationships also hold true in cylindrical and spherical coordinate systems? Or something like that.

BUMP: In process, how different is a Laplace transform from a Fourier transform?

The Laplace transform is related to the Fourier transform, but whereas the Fourier transform resolves a function or signal into its modes of vibration, the Laplace transform resolves a function into its moments.

yay I"m unhelpful

Mathematically, I think they are both Integral transforms with different kernals, IIRC. Don't know the details though.

We're taking up Fourier next week and tomorrow's exam is on Laplace, So Yeah... We're going to end up playing with Octave in lab; since the new exercise is Fourier transforms.
 224 Deboss, Sat, 23rd Jan '10 11:23:51 PM from Awesomeville Texas
I see the Awesomeness.
I know they're related, let's see what The Other Wiki says since I can't find the summary in my NCEES equation book.

The Laplace transform is related to the Fourier transform, but whereas the Fourier transform resolves a function or signal into its modes of vibration, the Laplace transform resolves a function into its moments.

Tzetze has quoted that but I want to know how different they are in process, i.e. solving them. For Laplace we can do it by definition and perform the integral OR derive/memorize the table of Laplace transforms due to the one-to-one rule.

Does this apply to Fourier?
