This is a relatively recent phenomenon, and there just hasn't been enough time yet for these kids to grow old enough for us know how bad it is.

But tell me what you think /sci/—how FUCKED are these kids' brains? Will giving an ipad to sub-10 year olds be made illegal at some point? Are these "parents" creating broken children?

Second poster here, but would also like to comment that yes software and data is here to stay.

Also a lot of the high paid jobs are reserved for engineers with a special skill, but there is high paid low skill paths too.

I don't know about NASA, but they asked me to apply to a 6 month position to an Antarctic base once. Even if I got it I don't think I would've gone. Only do it if you don't have any relationships etc.

yes you're right, i mangled that thought. i meant to say if they toned down their level of violence in general, which is very very high, whether black on black or black on cop (higher than cop on black violence), then there would be far fewer incidents going into the future, as only the small percentage of truly unrepentant racist cops would abuse innocent blacks, and it would be clear what was going on. police ramp up the violence because blacks are highly violent at baseline (again, average differences, i know smart well behaved blacks cringe at this whole business)

But the level of crime and violence has dropped though.

Does anyone know of any software capable of doing calculations with finite categories? I'd like to be able to input two finite categories and be able to automatically find functors between them and hopefully even natural transformations between those functors. I'm tired of finding Functor categories by hand so I thought that I would ask here if you've heard of any software that could help me.

Hello all. I've been working a few years in industrial machinery and almost all of the new tech improvements have to do with cameras, communications, etc., so I've been very interested in self-studying optics and photonics. I took mechanical engineering in college so I dare say optics is the area of physics I have the least instruction in. Does anyone know of good introductory resources or textbooks I can check out?

Do factorials of matrices exist?

>> No.11730171

not that i have heard of anything like it, but you could define it, probably only works with square matrixes tho

>> No.11730176

Only on a square matrix, and it wouldn't make sense unless each coefficient was the same. You could then derive that [2,2;2,2] factorial is just [2,2;2,2]x[1,1;1,1] = [4,4;4,4] and so on. Pardon my notation, I am a Matlab scumbag.

>> No.11730196

The gamma function is a holomorphic continuation of the factorial and thus continuous in almost all of [math]\mathbb R[/math], so we can define a matrix function (so long as the eigenvalues aren't [math]-1,-2,...[/math] or other negative integers) through a power series or the Jordan form as in: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matrix_function
