OT Re: Re:How to determine the maximum and currently-used paged pool size

The first one should be at anyones desk. It is with Apostols books are the
back bone of analysis. In England there used tobe a test Tripose ( not sure
if it is still there or not ). It is based on rapid fire Math, Physics, and
Chemistry. It is to enter good university with scholarship… So the British
school system I think is quite good. It is a sad fact that in North America
school level Math and Science is bit weak, well, of course except some
Science and Math Institute. Yes there are Science and Math Institute at the
High school level. But I know the graduate schools ( most of them) give well
rounded education and perspective. In the undergraduate there are lots of
other areas to cover so they don’t get the chance to punch more courses on
math and science.

I’m happy with the english version of that book :slight_smile:

Both of my boys are california GATE students and takes advance courses in
Math and Science. But I will have to wait another 3 and 5 years when they
approach the college to find out how good and how interested are they ? :slight_smile:

Thanks for mentioning the Control theory book.

Well, as if I’ve to sign something !

Pro,

Thank you for pointing out the first one which I didn’t know about.

Courant and Hilbert’s is my “bed time story” book-:). I only wish I knew
German so that I can read the original to make sure nothing is missing while
translating to English. Also, some “physimatics” books from Russian are
highly rated but can’t find their English version.

I think the mathematics education in America falls behind in general. In
some Asian countries, Calculus I is in standard curriculum for high school
kids.

In engineering field,

“Very few practicing engineers perform any kind of physical and mathematical
modeling. Mathematics is a subject that is not viewed as enhancing one’s
engineering skills but as an obstacle to avoid. Very few engineers have
balance between analysis and hardware essential for success in
Mechatronics.” By Kevin C. Craig, PhD, Professor of Mechanical Engineering,
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute “Modeling Analysis and Control
Introduction”.

Well, I’m sending my kids to math camp this weekend:)

Don’t forget to take a look at the following -

1) Pure Math by Hardy. It has one of the best treatment of elementary
function theory, including one of the best treatment of limit theories ( the
basic of non linear continuous math - in one word calculus ). This part with
taylor series in real or complex variable makes numercial analysis so easily
understandable :slight_smile:

2) Mathematical Physics by Courant and Hilbert. One of the classic of all
time.

Good lord, you can use those for your design !. I only refer to them when I
look at some of the codec implementations. Really good for you.

Yes, they are dynamic. Knowing the instantaneous value of any volatile
values aren’t very useful. However, from the instantaneous values, one could
compute the time derivative of the measurable quantity which is the
fundamental building block of differential equations. Dynamic systems are
naturally described by differential equations. Some complex optimization
algorithms I did in the past are modeled in DE. I didn’t really appreciate
the hard time my professors gave me on Mathematical Physics and Advanced
Engineering Mathematics back in the school days until I learned how to use
them to solve complex problems in my real world designs.

These are becoming totally dynamic as Windows moves forward so even if you
get it working today, it will not tommorrow. Why in the world would you
want this in the first place, even if you knew you have no control over the
other drivers of the system so the available pool is always changing.
