C++23

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C%2B%2B23

I would say; no big new features, rather fixes and extra thingies added to C++20.

Re: MW 648

This was the opening lilt before the news was reported, mainly by Eton-educated announcers

It's been taken over by left-wing liberals. As Paul will confirm, no doubt.

I was in a club and there was this DJ guy playing records

"you sound like John Peel"
"I am John Peel"

Re: Philosophy of Mathematics

Newton and Euler were the same person?? The acorn doesn’t fall from the tree. But Lagrange is closer. Nature is continuous, but the human brain is discrete. Example 1. Gradient descent (discrete), starting point for ML? [$]k = 1,2,3[$] 2. Continuous realisation of 1. [$]0 \lt t \lt \infty[$]

Re: Philosophy of Mathematics

We've all learned (discrete) Newton's method in kindergarten

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newton%27s_method

It is an iterative method and the nasty surprise is that it is the Euler method!

I suppose that the old-timers didn't have recourse to ODE solvers? Same with Cauchy's gradient descent.

I suspect his "Goodbye" will be followed by "And another thing..."
I don't think that word means what he thinks it means.
he's a bit like Colombo minus the humour.

Re: Asymptotic behaviour of ODE/PDE (large time)

The more I investigate Gradient Descent (GD) the more I believe ML have opened a can of worms (in their naivety). Invoking Sapir-Whorf, life begins with linear algebra and iterative, i.e. they are looking at the solution. Because algebra is low-hanging fruit. Let's skip the zillion fixes and patches...

Re: Those equatorial Ecuadorians

Fantastic story! United we stand, divided we fall: https://fablesofaesop.com/the-four-oxen-and-the-lion.html Cute. They weren't Irish oxen. Funny, but I was in Soweto and Stanton, Jo'burg 16 June 2006, the 30th anniversary of the murder of Hector Pieterson in 1976 and the start of the Soweto riots....

It's a kind of boycott, which is effective.
