    using laplace transforms for hammock measurements

    does anyone here use laplace transforms on measurements for calculating a new hammock designneo

    In as far as I did not know what it was and to the extent that I got lost trying to get through the Wikipedia article I guess I would have to say _NO I don't_! On the question of the "universal fudge factor", there I would say I employ it constantly.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    No, but I've been experimenting with a hammock made from dark matter. I first had to prove the existance of dark matter but that was easy.

    Now, let me tell you, packing the dark matter hammocks on the other hand are a B!#@H.

    ETA...I didn't see the Laplace Transforms for Dummies section in the wiki article so in all honesty, I have no idea how this would apply to making hammocks.

    You have to use continuum bags to pack your dark matter hammock - it gives you a lot of extra storage when used as a bishop sack/end cap, and stores nowhere and everywhere at the same time.

    Yes, I use all those formulas but I usually carry the 2.

    The formula I use is;

    The set of such numbers can be put into 1-to-1 correspondence with the integers. The set of numbers that do not terminate in 0's or repeat (terminating 0's is a special case of repeating) cannot be put into 1-to-1 correspondence with the integers---there are too many of them. Infinity has different scales. Yet if you pick any real number, and any arbitrarily small number epsilson > 0, there are an infinite number of numbers that end in repeating digits between r and r+epsilson.

    I often change from the frequency to the time domain when calculating the forces and stresses on the hammock.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    hammock math

    I'm more likely to fit a curve to data using a Lagrange polynomial than to look for the coefficients of a function that fits the points, expressed as an infinite expansion using whatever form of basis function suits my fancy that day.

    But Dutch, dude! What you say is so cool. Different sizes of infinity...it blows the mind. Like, did you ever imagine that entire civilizations might live on atoms, or that our own universe is at the atomic level scale of another universe. Imagine the hammocks those guys must have ...

    I think I've read about this in that scholarly tome "Horton Hears a Who".
