# IT WORKS!

Computer Program FORTRAN
I actually invented something that works!

Er, rather, my code works! Hooray!

And with two days to spare.

Dude, Akano, we've been over this:  Spoons and forks have already been combined in that past.  However, it was due to the Foroon invasion of 12,235,645,345 that combining the two has been forbidden.  It doesn't matter if you call them sporks or not...

Also, your title made me want to say "Never work, indeed! I'll show you!  8D"

I assume this is about the FDM post from before?

I've learned something related to FDM myself recently and had to use it. Just got my small program to work too. But it's not anything huge and I only barely understand it (as has been the case in most of this class.... which is why I'm not going to pursue a math minor anymore...)

Still, I wanted to point out I finally understood one of your math things!

Tekulo: ...Wait, what?!

Also, yes.

ET: Yes, this is related to my FDM post. I think you may understand it better via Taylor series/limit definitions of derivatives; that's where I started, and it made a lot more sense.

Which class are you talking about, by the way? Also, math is fun! Don't be discouraged; be driven!

And, yay!

"Numerical Computations: Algorithms for interpolation, approximation, integration, nonlinear equations, linear systems, fast FOURIER transform, and differential equations emphasizing computational properties and implementation."

Though I don't ever recall going over anything with the word "Fourier" in it.

Anyways I'm horrible with series and that's largely what caused most of my confusion in the class. Anything not related to them I think I grasped well enough.

Fourier Transforms are one of my favorite mathematical techniques. They're the operation by which signals are broken up into their composite frequencies, which is awesome.
