I didn't know that the distribution of heads is approximately a normal one. Didn't even think it that way previously.

Found it while playing with random walk approximated with coin toss, by with transition probability of 1/2. Interesting...

#Mathematics #Statistics #Probability
On a side note, the original random walk problem was:
- n nodes arranged linearly
- start with the mid node
- try to go to the extreme node (1 or n)
- transition probability of 1/2 ( being on ith node, there's equal probability of going to i-1 or i+1)

#Mathematics
The result is interesting:
If given a long-run, the total number of steps reaching to the extreme node (1 or n) is approximately equal to n^2 (n-squared).

This can, in fact, be derived from the distribution of the very coin toss I mentioned.

So frustrating to #know the answer to the question of how to formulate that #TheoryOfEverything #scientists say is the biggest unsolved problem in #physics, yet they don't even want to look at it:

Wave-particle duality a #mystery?
What I've found is rather astonishing:

The #mathematics used by #Maxwell are inconsistent.

He left the magnetic vector potential field [A] undefined and decoupled from the #medium thus creating #MaxwellsHole, which introduced an unwarrented #gauge #freedom in the model...
It is this #gauge #freedom thst led to the #hack known as #Quantum #Madness.

Really, it doesn't take a PhD to figure out that when you believe particles can exist at two places at the same time, you have a mental problem.

Vedic mathematics 😊🙏

A curious student asked his #Maths teacher...

If Zero was invented by #Aryabhatt and he was born in the #Kaliyuga... Then...

In the past in #Dwapara & #Tretha yugas who counted 100 #Kavravas and #Ravana's 10 heads and thousands of armies and weapons etc
Teacher resigned and went back to #Vedic education but is still not able to find the answer... 😁😂

Jokes apart... the point leads to immense wisdom ahead...

Let me start with just 1 reference from #Vedas and 1 from #Puranas
(to keep this answer short - we will not have enough space if we want to document all such references).

1. #Vedic Reference (#Yajur #veda):
The #Rishi #Medhātithi, after preparing bricks for a Vedic ritual, prays to the Lord of fire, #Agni.

Let us see what #Hinduism n #Hindus gave to the world.

A #Thread about #Hindus contribution to form this world better.

Hindu's contribution in any subject is more than any other religion in this world.

SHARE AND BE PROUD.
1)Let's talk about #Mathematics 1st
i)"0" :- one of the most important inventions of all time. Aryabhata invited the "0" 1st.The concept of zero and its integration into the place-value system also enabled one to write numbers, no matter how large, by using only ten symbols.
2)ii) Decimal System:- Hindus gave Decimal system. This system made the uses of arithmetic in practical inventions much faster and easier.

iii)Numerical Notation:-
As early as 500 BCE, had devised a system of different symbols for every number from one to nine.

Thread: Another overview amazing #Muslim *female* achievement.

Did you know the first university in the world was built by a Muslim woman approx 1200 years ago?

This is the story of Fatima Al-Fihiri (800–880 CE). #BadassWoman #twitterstorians

2. Daughter of a wealthy businessman, the family moved from Tunisia to Fez, Morocco during the rule of King Idriss II. When both her husband and father died, Fatima and her sister inherited a fortune.

They chose to spend their inheritance on building educational institutions.
3. In 859, Fatima built the Al-Qayrawan #Mosque, decorated in the Andalusian style with Kufic calligraphy (early style) engraved throughout. At 3,000 sq ft, it can fit 22,000 people.

She stacked it with Islamic works (Qur’ans, #Hadith collections, etc).

Today is the 124-th #birthday of #German #mathematician Heinz Hopf(1894-1971). By ISBN 3-05-500402-7,page 173, Hopf in 1925 became one of only ten men during the 124 years from 1810-1933 whom the #mathematics faculty of #Berlin gave the grade of 'summa cum laude'..
.. for his doctorate. Hopf's relatively old graduation age of 28.5 years (which is old in mathematics, esp. in Hopf's time) is clearly due to #WorldWarOne: at age 18, Hopf volunteered to serve in the #German army, which he did(as a low-ranking officer) for a full four years..
.., in particular participating in the Battle of #Verdun of 1916,in which he was wounded. While on furlough in 1917, Hopf attended mathematics lectures, in particular by Erhard Schmidt, in his hometown of #Breslau (then still a #German town), which impressed him greatly. During..

#brexit, #language, #mathematics, #pseudoscience, #rhetoric, #style

Brand-new and remarkable: #today, in a speech before #industry-representatives, chancellor Angela #Merkel used an old-fashioned, and,I think, INAPPROPRIATE,mathematical term to describe the #Brexit discussions..
.. in the #UK.

On 20180925, 9:50 CET, (cf. bdi.eu/der-bdi/termin…), chancellor Merkel said the following: "Wesentlich hängt es natürlich auch davon ab, was Großbritannien denn wirklich möchte. Auch da ist ja die Diskussion nicht so ganz eineindeutig [sic],
und, das muss ich..
.. allerdings sagen: Man kann nicht zum Binnenmarkt gehören, wenn man in EINEM Teil nur zum Binnenmarkt gehören will, aber in drei ANDEREN Teilen nicht zum Binnenmarkt gehört, und da müssen wir verschiedene, äh, vernünftige Wege [ rest drowned out by applause ]."

#New Traders, Understand #Mathematics Of #Profit In Market Before You Put Hard #Earned Money On Risk.

Expectancy = Success Rate x Reward Risk Ratio

Lets Talk About Expectancy Of Short Term Directional Trading System.

Read On (1/n)
Success Rate = No Of Profitable Tades/ No Of Loss Making Trades

Reward Risk Ratio = Average Profit Per Trade / Average Loss Per Trade

If Success Rate is 0.5 and Reward Risk 2, Then

Expectancy = 2 x 0.5 =1

For Making Profit, Expectancy Should Be Positive Number (2/n)
To Calculate Expectancy, You Need Defined System With Rules To Get Success Rate and Reward Risk. If You Have No System To Take Decisions, You Are Hanging In Thin Air and Will Never No Whether You Will Keep Making Or Loosing Money In Future (3/n)
