Ladies and gentlemen, The Amazing Slime-Otm predicts the future as good as any Nostradamus could.

How does he do it??? :o :shock: :o

Say it ain't so, amazing slime.o! :lol:


Nice deduction MR. Sherlock GG. :)

:shock: The Amazing Slime.O @ Work! :shock:

How does he do it... :?:


Wanna see him pulla Napoleon Murphy Brock outta his hat? :D


Gotta go fireworks! Happy 4th everyone!

From ghosts to psychic powers history is riddled with unexplained events. You can turn back now...

... or learn the stuff they don't want you to know.

I know how you did it, but I'm not going to tell.

But can you say it in Vulcan?


Find a mistake bro? :wink:

a couple of hints...





first for single variable, say you have a collection of points (x,y), where:

x = the number of concurrent zappa members logged in on the forum
y = the date & approx. time of day...
and you want the best line through them; the line will be:
y = ax + b, where:
a = (<xy>-<x><y>) / (<x^2>-<x>^2), probability of a zappa member being logged in
and b = <y> - a<x> probability of a random guests viewing the forum

the randomness correlation coefficient 'r' is given by

r = (<xy>-<x><y>) / sqrt[(<x^2>-<x>^2) * (<y^2>-<y>^2)
{wild & beighter-1967}

in the above, the notation <xy> means 'average value of xy', in other words;

for each
zappa member logged in, multiply x for that point times y
(the
guest viewing the forum) for that point, add up all the products,
and divide by the number of points...

similarly, <x^2> is the mean value of x^2
you'll recognize the denominator of the expression for 'a' as
the variance of x, so you could rewrite the formulas as:

a = (<xy>-<x><y>) / var(x)
r = a * sqrt[var(x) / var(y)]

now for the multivariate version of the formulas;
think of x as a vector, but y is still a scalar...
y is a function of multiple variables of the
18,159
zappa forum memberlist
and the 3,600 minutes
in a day
which together are called x.

use upper case [ :P ] letters for vectors and <> for the dot product of two vectors:

A•x means A[1]*x[1] + A[2]*x[2] + ...

we're still looking for a linear relation between x and y, and now it's of the form y = A•x + b

since x is a vector of the 'n' quantity of
zappa forum
members logged in
, we look for 'n' coefficients of
proportionality, and make scalar 'a' into vector A• in
the formula for A, the numerator becomes:

(<xy>-<x><y>)

this is easy to interpret; x is a vector, y is a scalar. every
component of x is multiplied by the scalar y

but the denominator takes a little more thought; what do we mean by

(<xx> - <x><x>) ¿

this is a second rank tensor, which looks like a square matrix...
and, if x has n components, then <xx> has n^2 components

the (i,j) component of this object is made by averaging <x{i}x{j}>
over all the points in your sample which equals the number of
minutes
in one day

<x><x> is the matrix that you make just by multiplying out all possible
combinations of the vectors x; the (i,j) component of <x><x> is given by:

<x{i}><x{j}>; in other words,

separately average the x{i} components for all points
and the x{j} components for all points, then just multiply
those two together based on the total
zappa member logged
in
, guests viewing the zappa forum, and the duration of one day

<xx> and <x><x> are both matrices
subtract one from the other to get the
denominator matrix corresponding to var(x)

then you must divide this matrix into the numerator
vector. the way to do this is to invert the matrix, then multiply...
symbolically, you could write the steps this way:

let vector V = (<xy>-<x><y>)
let matrix M = (<xx>-<x><x>)

then let vector A = inv(M) * V

also, r^2 = inv(M) * V

the inverse of the matrix M is another matrix; the product of that matrix with a vector is another vector

finally, b is just a scalar, and the formula for b is just as before, with a and x becoming vectors:

b = <y> - Aa•<x>







...hope this helps

What rank amateurish drivel. WHAT ABOUT THE COEFFICIENT????

I barely perused it and understood immediately. I can do some flat out brain thinking, when I wanna.

ok, cal, knock yerself out; apply the ‹cœƒƒicient› to a full blown analysis & predict the next time the number of concurrent logged-in forum members will exceed 326

we'll compare notes

Using my scientific calculator and advanced logarithms, the answer I got is......duck fat? What? This is the last calculator I buy at Walmart.
