Re: Squares

Is there any chance of knowing what this is about? In the earlier “Circles” thread, amongst other things, Squaring The Circle was investigated. But that thread kept going round in circles. This “Squares” thread better describes the participants than the geometrical figure. Squares is a spectator sp...

Re: Squares

If it uses a fixed set of rules, independent of the data, then it is theoretically impossible to reverse it in all cases.
You have another hash function.

I know that there is no fixed formula for reversible compression of arbitrary data.

I think the only way to compress is to look for repetition of patterns in the data, then create an index dictionary.

Re: Squares

The old Circles topic evolved for people who go round in circles, the Squares topic was created for square people, not for experts in the calculus of geometry. Squares is somewhere the bonds of reality can be shed, along with the bounds of mathematics. Albert needs a challenge that he believes is po...

Your mathematical proof can only be understood and believed by mathematicians.

It is simply an admission that a mathematician has proved that a mathematician can't do it.
I see no reason why that might stop Albert from trying.

Re: Squares

Albert, are you starting to understand, now, why I told you that it is mathematically impossible to compress at a constant, fix ratio? The field of mathematics (beyond arithmetic) is not part of Albert's equations. It is therefore conceptually impossible to prove how such an obvious and simple conc...

Re: fbsound 1.1 (dynamic) Windows/Linux 32 and 64-bit (wav mp3 ogg mod it xm s3m)

looks like a joke at the first glance but trust me the expansion of the universe tells us one important thing if on 100 x 100 x 100 meters or feets are one particle left there is no way to store any information ! Without any kind of information you can't compress or decompress it ! I'm sure the cur...

Abs() removes the sign bit. You cannot get it back.

If you keep coming up with compression algorithms at this rate, the universe will implode in on itself and there will be no information left to store.

@Albert. Are you aware that you posted in the minute of your winter solstice. Your days are getting longer since you posted, mine are getting shorter. Months were called “moon'ths” because they are lunar = Moon cycles. You have invented half-seasons which would need to be called “sun'ths”. A leap da...

Re: Squares

You can search the volume of a large multidimensional drawing board, for ever, for a solution.
But it only takes a couple of lines on the back of an envelope to prove, there can be no solution.

Re: Squares

How many permutations are there for "1234"
Is it 16 or 256 ??

Neither. It is the factorial of 4 = 4! = 1x2x3x4 = 24.

Re: Squares

As dyscalculia is to arithmetic, so what? is to algebra.
Cross multiply;
∴ dyscalculia * algebra / arithmetic = what?
Futility?
