Well, assuming this day is, in fact, a good day. -- 11:47, 29 October 2008 (EDT)

BUT MAKING WAR AND PEACE ARE MARKS OF SOVEREIGNTY. LET IT BE SO IN POLITICK SOCIETIES. MAY NOT THEREFORE A MAN IN THE WEST-INDIES, WHO HATH WITH HIM SONS OF HIS OWN, FRIENDS, OR COMPANIONS, SOLDIERS UNDER PAY, OR SLAVES BOUGHT WITH MONEY, OR PERHAPS . A BAND MADE UP OF ALL THESE, MAKE WAR AND PEACE, IF THERE SHOULD BE OCCASION, AND RATIFIE THE ARTICLES TOO WITH AN OATH, WITHOUT BEING A SOVEREIGN, AN ABSOLUTE KING OVER THOSE WHO WENT WITH HIM? HE THAT SAYS HE CANNOT, MUST THEN ALLOW MANY MASTERS OF SHIPS, MANY PRIVATE PLANTERS TO BE ABSOLUTE MONARCHS, FOR AS MUCH AS THIS THEY HAVE DONE. WAR AND PEACE CANNOT BE MADE FOR POLITICK SOCIETIES, BUT BY THE SUPREAM POWER OF SUCH SOCIETIES; BECAUSE WAR AND PEACE, GIVING A DIFFERENT MOTION TO THE FORCE OF SUCH A POLITICK BODY, NONE CAN MAKE WAR OR PEACE, BUT THAT WHICH HAS THE DIRECTION OF THE FORCE OF THE WHOLE BODY, AND THAT IN POLITICK SOCIETIES IS ONLY THE SUPREAM POWER. IN VOLUNTARY SOCIETIES FOR THE TIME, HE THAT HAS SUCH A POWER BY CONSENT, MAY MAKE WAR AND PEACE, AND SO MAY A SINGLE MAN FOR HIMSELF, THE STATE OF WAR NOT CONSISTING IN THE NUMBER OF PARTYSANS, BUT THE ENMITY OF THE PARTIES, WHERE THEY HAVE NO SUPERIOUR TO APPEAL TO. --Mafaraxas (talk) 12:42, 29 October 2008 (EDT)

## Mr Maf

Can any set of rotations about dif axes in 3-space be reduced to a single rotation about any axis? Fairly sure is yes but cba to find whether it is ;o Tab 17:00, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

vectors, ye? yar, i believe so; the new axis of rotation is the normal vector to the plane created by the original vector and the final vector after the set of rotations. The cross product of the original vector and resultant vector gives the normal vector, and from that the equation of the plane. --Mafaraxas 21:42, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
maf the strong, thats more or less what i was thinking, kupo Tab 22:21, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
but to clarify, i mean if for example you have a sphere rotating at some speed around its x, y and z axes, then is that always the same as a single rotation around one axis? Tab 22:24, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
i think so... --Mafaraxas 01:03, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
When rotating about 1 axis, you can only modify the coordinates of the other two axes. Ofc, I'm not completely sure what you mean, but I don't think it can. It can be transformed into a single-axis rotation, but it isn't identical to one. Also, Linear Algebra sucks. Also also, why are you never on anymore, maf? Q_Q   ツ cedave (☆contributions☆) 18:07, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
many graph theories and optimization and english grind. --Mafaraxas 19:58, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
Aww. Well, hopefully school stops trying to overwork you soon. ··· 20:11, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
Another answer: each rotation can be represented as a linear operator (matrix); so if you are applying multiple rotations A,B,C,...,Y to an arbitrary starting vector x, then the result after the rotations is just the product Y(X(...(C(B(A(x)))...)) = (YX...CBA)x = Zx, where Z=YX...CBA would be the operation to straight from x to its final position. Since rotations matrices are unitary (orthogonal), their product is unitary (orthogonal), so Z must represent a single rotation relative to some orthonormal basis in Rn. — Maf so rational. 22:52, April 14, 2010 (UTC)

olawd. no, that's easier than what i was mentioning. degree sequence is a vector with each element being the degree of a vertex, and from that you determine whether a graph satisfying it can be drawn or not. like, they don't explicitly tell you the edges ;o --Mafaraxas 01:48, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

yes, not everyone is familiar with the phonetic alphabet. ~ PheNaxKian talk 22:14, November 10, 2009 (UTC)
so, if maf's login was μαφλεσ, then would that be acceptable? Because if that's the case, I think a redirect is in order. ··· Danny Pew Pew 22:19, November 10, 2009 (UTC)
Which, btw, is spelled wrong. It should be μαφλες. The "ς" is the final sigma that you use on the end of words. And I'm assuming you wanted it to sound like Maffles and the way you have it spelled now would sound like "maf-less". It should be spelled either "μαφλις" (which sounds like "maf-lis") or "μαφαλς" (which sounds like "maf-ahls"). Those are about as close, phonetically, as you're going to get.

You mean to the account of a user we could create/permaban and then redirect to User:Mafaraxas? ··· Danny Pew Pew 00:04, November 11, 2009 (UTC)
I think his point is that it links to user Μαφλεσ for some reason, which isn't μαφλεσ - AthrunFeya 01:09, November 11, 2009 (UTC)
it seems kind of impractical that anyone would ever type in pvx.wikia.com/wiki/user:μαφλεσ anyway, not many people have latin keyboards. which brings me back to the point that i think everyone here is arguing: who gives a shit? Gringo 01:17, November 11, 2009 (UTC)
It's Greek, actually. Not Latin. But yes, no one gives a shit. Karate Jesus 01:25, 11 November 2009
the point is some new user will see a comment by "μαφλεσ" but when they follow the link to the user/talk page they will find "Mafaraxas", obviously this will cause confusion and people will believe they've gone to the wrong place, with redirects people will at least see the "redirected from: blar". And i don't care about this bull shit "μαφλεσ" means "maffels". Barely anyone speaks Greek, so nobody will know it says maffels when they look at it. ~ PheNaxKian talk 10:30, November 11, 2009 (UTC)
I never remembered who <insert greek letters> was, but I was never confused about going to the wrong page tbh. ---- 10:39, November 11, 2009 (UTC)
Last I heard, around 6 million people still actively speak Greek as their first language and around 20 million speak it fluently as a second language (although, it's been several years since I read that stat). And...you know...it is basically the foundation for English. If anyone ever says Latin was, they're fucktarded. The Greco-Roman world spoke Greek for centuries until archaic English was invented (most likely before Latin was widely used).
Also, wut? Why are we arguing about this? Just redirect the page and let's move on. Karate Jesus 14:23, 11 November 2009
because of the point made a few comments up, it doesn't link to the correct page. ~ PheNaxKian talk 14:42, November 11, 2009 (UTC)
Ohhh, it capitalizes it. Hmm...what about creating a page just called μαφλεσ and redirecting it? Karate Jesus 14:47, 11 November 2009

(Reset indent) it auto capitalises the first letter so you can never have "μαφλεσ" it would always be "Mαφλεσ" ~ PheNaxKian talk 16:17, November 11, 2009 (UTC)

Damn....oh, well. I give up. Karate Jesus 16:46, 11 November 2009
it reads "μ" as "m" because the letter is Mu i believe (mutorrent !), but i dont speak greek. also kj, 26 million out of 6,500,000,000 really isn't a lot, and thats mostly adults overseas, who won't be coming here. if the person copy+pasted maf's sig, it should still take them to "Mαφλεσ", and then redirect them, no? if thats the case then who cares if the first letter is in english? as long as they get there and it redirects thats all that matters. or, and i repeat this again in vain, we can say fuck it and move along because its meaningless. Gringo 18:02, November 11, 2009 (UTC)
Actually, "M" is the capital of "μ" in Greek. So, it's not converting it to English, it's just captializing it in Greek (try just typing "λεσ" into the search). Anywho, you're right, not a lot of people speak/use Greek. Just pointing out that some people do. Oh, and I agree on the whole "it will still redirect" thing. Karate Jesus 18:10, 11 November 2009

Out of curiosity, what would be confusing about seeing one name and going to a different User: page? Signatures are just representations of who a user is. As long as he's not going about as Auron, I don't see the problem. You said earlier that the phonetic alphabet could be problematic - I say that IPs are problematic. I'm used to seeing IPv6 addresses, so IPv4 addresses confuse me quite a bit. (Bad comparison, but you should see the idea.) ··· Danny Pew Pew 19:50, November 11, 2009 (UTC)

## dear maf

2nd order ode of the form $\frac{d^{2}y}{dx^{2}} + p(x)\frac{dy}{dx} + y = 0$ (might be a bit wrong, all i can remember is that its got the p(x) there somewhere) has a solution of the form $y = y_{1} + y_{2}$, and from observation you know what $y_{1}$ is. iirc theres some formula to get $y_{2}$, along the lines of $y_{2} = y_{1}\int{\frac{e^{\int{p(x)dx}}}{y_{1}^{2} }dx}$.
a)does such a formula actually exist, or am i thinking of something else / completely wrong?
b)if such a formula does exist, do you know what it is / remind me what its called so i can find it out?
with love, tabbles

tbh, i had to do a little digging. when you mentioned it it sounded familiar, but it's something i cbf to remember. Anyway, they should re-title that page "solution to tab's problem."
so it's $y_{2}=y_{1}\int_{}^x{\frac{dt}{y_{1}^2(t)}}$.
you were sort of combining that with the solution to first-order equation of the form $\frac{d{y}}{d{x}}+p(x)y=q(x)$, which has the general solution
$y={\mu}^{-1}\int{{\mu}q(x)dx}$, where $\mu=e^{\int{p(x)dx}}$. — Maf so rational. 22:39, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

seeing as you enjoy matlab and i dont know what im doing with it, would you like check if this iterates the bisection method 20 times properly for me?

function bisection(a,b)

x(1)=(a+b)/2;

if     f(x(1))==0
x(2)=x(1);
elseif (f(x(1)))*(f(a))<0
x(2)=(x(1)+a)/2;
else   x(2)=(x(1)+b)/2;
end

if     f(x(2))==0
x(3)=x(2);
elseif (f(x(1)))*(f(x(2)))<0
x(3)=(x(1)+x(2))/2;
elseif (f(x(2))*(f(a))<0
x(3)=(x(2)+a)/2;
else   x(3)=(x(2)+b)/2;
end

for i=4:20;
if     f(x(i-1))==0
x(i)=x(i-1);
elseif (f(x(i-1)))*(f(x(i-2)))<0
x(i)=(x(i-1)+x(i-2))/2;
else   x(i)=(x(i-1)+x(i-3))/2;
end
end

x(20)
output short

Tab 14:42, March 4, 2010 (UTC)

oh and unrelated question is there a command that differentiates, or would i have to store f and f' as seperate files?

well something is borky with your code somewhere, since i did some small fixes and ran it with f(x)=x^2-2 and it was converging on ~1.416. I was going to just tell you the small fixes, but since tbh your code is unnecessarily bulky, imma just write you new code. I think for the most part it was fine, but you're doing more work than you need to.
function x = bisection(f,a,b,n)
% function x = bisection(f,a,b,n)
% Does a basic bisection on the function f, beginning with the interval
% (a,b), and doing n iterations and storing intermediate guesses in the
% vector x.  Note f must either be a function file itself, or an inline
% function defined beforehand by (for example):
%
% f=@(x) x.^2-2
%

x=zeros(n,1);
x(1)=(a+b)/2;

% boundaries of the interval on the kth step.  gets overwritten on each loop.
a_k=a; b_k=b;

for i=2:n
if f(x(i-1))==0
% if we hit the zero exactly, make the rest of the vector the same
% x value and quit.

x(i:n)=x(i-1)*ones(n-i+1,1);
format long
x(50)
format short
return

% otherwise, do the tests to shrink your interval.
elseif f(x(i-1))*f(a_k)<0
b_k=x(i-1);
x(i)=(a_k + b_k)/2;
elseif f(x(i-1))*f(b_k)<0
a_k=x(i-1);
x(i)=(a_k + b_k)/2;
end
end

format long
x(50)
format short

end

and nop, matlab doesn't do anything symbolically, so you can't get a true derivative (though you can still just do $\frac{f(x+h)-f(x)}{h}$ with h small). you can define functions inside a file though, like:
 f = @(x) exp(x.^2-2) , and
fprime = @(x) 2*x.*exp(x.^2-2) 

once you do those, you can just say fprime(2) and f(2) and it'll give you function values. moo. — Maf so rational. 17:31, March 4, 2010 (UTC)

moo, <3. i also need to make a m-file for newton-raphson with input $x_{0}$, im guessing its just going to be something like:
function newton(a)

x(0)=a;

for i=1:20
x(i)=g(x(i-1));
end

format long
x(20)
format short


with $g(x)=x-\frac{f(x)}{f'(x)}$ defined in one m-file, and f and f' defined in another? i would just check it all myself but i cant be fucked going to a computer lab so i'm using notepad as my matlab :> Tab 18:33, March 4, 2010 (UTC)

Sure, you can do it that way if you like, but doing functions inline like i showed above (with the f=@(x) ...) is way easier. Especially because since you can put them both inside your newton function, you can just edit them both when you change your function. also, if you're going to do matlab stuff on a computer without matlab often, a handy program is notepad++. It'll color the text in the same way as matlab's editor does (if you change your language in the Language dropdown menu), and has tabs. — Maf so rational. 20:39, March 4, 2010 (UTC)
imo, use ConText or cedit. ConText is pretty powerful editor.  21:08, 4 March 2010 (UTC)
moo, i skipped all of my matlab lectures so i have no idea what anything besides the basics does, and im not willing to read my textbook. im guessing f=@(x) <function goes here> just sets f(x) as a function like a f.m file would? Tab 23:19, March 4, 2010 (UTC)
yep, then in the command window or wherever you can just type f(1) (or whatever) and it evaluates the function there. Unlike doing an actual function file "f.m", though, it's only temporary, and will get cleared when you exit matlab. — Maf so rational. 04:38, March 5, 2010 (UTC)

someone had the kadabra one as an avatar on the MSPA forums. I followed the link to save the cuteness and saw the image was numbered as in the pokedex entry and I thought "...no way, could it be?" and it fucking was. so amazing. So I suppose you could consider it copypasta.
If you are talking about the effort I did to get the actual images up here (as far as the 400+ links), I did the first 100 manually, then copypasted and changed the digits, then cleaned up the ones that were dead links.
By the way, if anyone wants the code to download all of these automatically (via matlab), here you go. Note you have to edit the file urlwrite.m like i mentioned, or if you can't, save it under a different name and call that function instead. In other words, if you try to run this with standard matlab, you should get an error (at least with the poke-avatars) and it'll stop prematurely, so then you follow the error link on the command line and just change "error" to "warning". — Maf so rational. 05:02, April 20, 2010 (UTC)

## how do i use / play GW with a build i downloaded here.. and is it possible to do so ?

hi there :)

sorry for dropping in like this , but just got only one question...

i'm quite new to this site..

and trying to figure out , how do i use / play GW with a build i downloaded here..

and is it possible to do so ?

thx and grtz from

nico / slingshot1704

Hello. I am not sure why you are asking me, but assuming you have all the skills for the build, etc, you can load a build you find here onto one of your characters in guild wars with the following steps:
1. First, find the page of the build you want to use (for example, Build:W/any Crippling Slash Warrior).
2. Locate the section on the page called "Attributes and Skills", where the skillbar is shown. Just below the 8th skill (the skill furthest to the right), there is a button labeled "Download." Click on it, and you should get a pop-up window asking if you want to save this file. Click yes.
3. You need to download the file to a specific place. If you are using Vista or Windows 7, you should save the file in the directory C:/Users/(your username)/Documents/Guild Wars/Templates/. If you are using Windows XP, instead save the file in the directory C:/Program Files/Guild Wars/Templates/. If you don't have the option of choosing where you download your file, you'll need to move it to one of those locations manually.
4. If done correctly, you should be able to start Guild Wars normally, switch to the character you want to use the build, and access it like you would any other build you've saved on that character.
If any of these steps aren't clear, feel free to ask me about it specifically. — Maf so rational. 13:31, May 8, 2010 (UTC)

and that solution curves are always orthogonal to the gradient of the solution surface, so that
