Think I need a life savor to help me.
Anyone have any floating devices to keep my head above the water?

OMG... Algorithms are so confusing, especially with the if, then, Omega, Theta, and n squared omega. All these Omegas going through my head; I'm surprised Kappa isn't one of them. Starting to feel like I'm in sorority here.
I think my brain is going in circles. I have to pause like every 2 seconds just to try to understand the Language talk.


I least made it to Chapter 3...Guess that's progress... Think they need to go a little slower on the engine though with the calculations.



I'm not giving up though...........


ONWARD!

Would you like to share with us what your reading, so we can make sence of your nonsencable ramblings?

You would have to know Math and Computer Programming to understand. It's nerd talk.

lol

I code to an extent, and still have no idea whats going on!!

what on earth are they teaching these days, omegas in an if/then statement? Logic shouldn't be much more than .. well logic.

O.o

whats an omega!!

if code > understandable then omega myga godga!!!!

They have 3 different types, that I think I have so far, or semi understanding too.

Big-O

Big - O Omega

Big - O Theta.

An example of the Omega Theta statement. Try to memorize this baby.

f(n) E Omega Theta (g(n)) function if there exist c1, c2 then > [greater than] 0 and are Integer n0 > [greater than] 0 such that c1 * g(n) >= [greater than or equal too] f(n) >= [greater than or equal too] c2 * g (n) for all n > [greater than] n0

That's just Theta.

That's not Omega.. Omega is just as long.

This looks close to Calculus 2. Theta and Omega, are you doing some functions in the spherical or cylindrical coordinate system? Taking the limit as theta approaches 0... I suppose it would help if I could see the equation in Picture form. I'm a visual thinker.
---------
f(n) E Omega Theta (g(n)) function if there exist c1, c2 then > [greater than] 0 and are Integer n0 > [greater than] 0 such that c1 * g(n) >= [greater than or equal too] f(n) >= [greater than or equal too] c2 * g (n) for all n > [greater than] n0
--------
function of n "E ΩΘ (g(n) If exist c1, c2 then >0 & int n0>0
c1*g(n)>=f(n)>=c2*g(n) for all n>n0

looks like a solid that you may have to take derivative to find the total volume of the non-standard solid. Or something like that. is this a formula that you are trying to apply to an equation?

There's just showing sorting code, not in the actual functions yet. C++

I think this is a sample though

c1 g(n) >= f(n) >= c2 g(n)

n squared >= n square/2 - n/2 >= 1/4 n squared

for

n >= n0 >= 2

Don't forget parenthesis and brackets, order of operations. That equation doesn't calc right, if you just start out at the left.

Maybe I copied it wrong.. I'll have to go back. Told you it's confusing.


try this one. I think they used c1 = 2 and c2 = 1/4

c1 g (k+1) >= f (k+1)

So you are creating a data structure bag with sorting capabilities depending on the sorting criteria as well as the contents of the data, whether numerical or alphabetic. It has been a while since I took computer programming in college...

I'm sorry, I don't think I can help you at this time... However, there might be a few links that might help you.

Algorithms and data structures in C/C++
Sorting Algorithm Examples
OR
just go here and take a look

Good luck and be sure to give us more information such as...


  • What class is this for?
  • What is the name of the class?
  • What is the name of the chapter, or chapter heading?
  • What is the end goal of this program or function besides just sorting? (sorting how)
  • null

Oh, I'm just doing this for leisure.


Don't really need it.

And yea, I couldn't figure out how to write out the code for OMEGA THETA but you did.


Just doing the basics right now.

I'm only in Pre- Calculus

Think I did a hop, skip and jump from Calculus, Probabilities, Statistics and Claculus 2

Math is like a pyramid. If you do not have the lessons below learned then the lessons to come will be that much more difficult. However, when you get to calculus 3 then you will understand all math that much better. For you see, all math was derived from calculus; and math permeates all things.

It will get easier to understand, but if you don't use it, it may be difficult to recall what you learned. (I speak from experience.)

I'll remember that.


Thank you. I'm writing everything down word for word. So it's easier for me to remember.

I thought you'd finally flipping lost it completely there.

But it's Maths. I don't do them.
