    CISRA Awards

    Hey guys, so I logged into my cse email account and saw that i've been apparently short listed for some CISRA Award thing (seems like 13 people are in the running). I'm a little skeptical about it. Firstly they require an interview with CISRA representatives, and secondly they want my resume...

    Orthogonal matrices

    Is it always true that a 3x3 orthogonal matrix with determinant 1 has an eigenvalue 1? Because the notes say so, but I have a matrix which is orthogonal and has determinant 1, but according to maple it has 2 imaginary eigenvalues and one 0. Am I doing something wrong? :(

    Non HSC Maths Marathon

    Just like the marathons in the hsc maths forums, except out of scope questions. I'm interested in seeing the types of questions other unis do. This might not work due to lack of people participating, but its worth a shot. (Note: no, im not using this as an attempt to get my assignment questions...

    Java: int to char

    Hi, im having a little trouble converting int to char in java :/ What i know works: String str = Integer.toString(i); char c = str.charAt(0); Is there any better way though than creating a string? I thought maybe: int i = 0; char c = (char)i; might work, but it just prints a...

    Any 2011/2711 students hang around this board? I'd post more on the designated forum but it seems pretty evident they dont like taking criticism on there. I think this is quite easily the most inefficiently run subject i've ever taken :mad1: Which sucks, since its probably the most important...

    MATH1905 exam

    hey all, i dont know if this is a dumb question, but how are we supposed to answer those questions that ask you to do a t-test or a chi-square test considering we arent given the tables?

    Greetings all, I would like to announce that I have stepped down as mod of both maths and maths ext 1. It's been a great one year or so, but i felt it was time to leave. Replacing me is Slide Rule, who I thought would be the most qualified for the position, play nice ;) I'm sure he'll do an...
