Calvin Lin's messageboard -3

See the new messageboard. This messageboard will be locked soon.


Hi guys! You can leave messages for me here.

My previous messageboard has too many comments and images, which cause it to load slowly. If you have a previous conversation please continue it there instead of starting a new thread here.

I will be editing and deleting comments to help keep this loading fast. E.g. Once images are irrelevant, they will simply be displayed as a hyperlink, instead of requiring everyone to download the picture. Irrelevant comments will be deleted.

Please keep conversations separate, IE start a new thread for different comments. This will allow me to easily keep track of live discussions.

@Azhaghu Roopesh M The messageboard is for more personal comments or questions that you have. General questions like "What are some problem solving tips?" should be posted as a note for the community to respond to directly, instead of only asking it here. Calvin Lin Staff · 2 years, 2 months ago

With the changes being made in Brilliant, I wonder if wikis are even harder to find now? I made a wiki some time back Propositional Logic Using Algebra, and then just now when I went to look for it for reference for a problem I'm working on, the only way I was able to find it was to actually do a Google search. Is there an easier way to find such wikis? Michael Mendrin · 1 year, 11 months ago

@Michael Mendrin By right, they would automatically appear in our search results, unless we deleted the wiki page.

In this particular case, the entry wasn't updated which is why you could not find it. We had to sync it up manually, and now it appears. We will look into this further, and see if there are other wiki pages that are not appearing in search. Thanks!!

@Calvin Lin Serious, Calvin, and I've mentioned this several times before. If Brilliant.org is going to invest so much into its wikis, it has to be made more accessible somehow. I have no idea how, I don't have any answers yet, but something needs to be done. I know that there are a large number of excellent wikis and notes, but unfortunately they seem to exist in some kind of a netherworld, and you already have to know what you're looking for before you could find a particular one. Some kind of indexing is needed, I think. Even something like this helps Agnishom's Wikis Michael Mendrin · 1 year, 11 months ago

@Michael Mendrin Agreed. We are looking into plans for wiki organization. Calvin Lin Staff · 1 year, 11 months ago

@Akshay Sharma x is equivalent to 0 mod 7 means x gives out remainder as 0 when divided by 7 you may check out modular arithmetic for detailed explaination Chinmay Sangawadekar · 1 year, 4 months ago

@Calvin Lin, I would really appreciate if you could give me some background on solving and finding Pythagorean poly-tuplets. For example, find the number of nonnegative solutions to a^2+b^2+c^2+d^2+e^2=30^2. Thank you sir for for time and great website. I hope I can meet you someday. Also thank you for getting me out of my habit of plugging in equality cases in polynomials. This has helped to USA(J)MO level algebra problems. Thank you sir. Sal Gard · 10 months, 1 week ago
