Arithmetic expressions [Bash Hackers Wiki]
Should note that return value is always decimal, and that you can use 'printf' to format the result in another base, e.g.,
<code class="language-bash">printf "%o\n" $(( 0777 & 0066 ))
# result: 66</code>

linux - bash + arithmetic calculation with bash - Unix & Linux Stack Exchange
Since arithmetic expansion only does integer division, the proposed answer uses AWK, passing in values as variables, with '/dev/null' as the input file, and the math in a 'BEGIN' block.

Builtin Bash any base to decimal conversion – Phoxis
Bash has an interesting builtin feature to convert from any base to decimal, which is a part of bash's arithmetic evaluation features. In this post i will quickly introduce you with this feature. Arithmetic Expansion To allow arithmetic evaluation of an expression and substitution of the result bash has the following construct. For example The…

python numpy machine epsilon - Stack Overflow |

An easier way to get the machine epsilon for a given float type is to use np.finfo():

<code class="language-python">print(np.finfo(float).eps)
# 2.22044604925e-16

# 1.19209e-07</code>

Also interesting, but I wonder why this works:

Another easy way to get epsilon is:
<code class="language-python">
In [1]: 7./3 - 4./3 -1
Out[1]: 2.220446049250313e-16

algebra precalculus - How to find the inverse of a piecewise function - Mathematics Stack Exchange
You have y=x when 0≤x≤1 and y=x−1 when 2<x≤3, which is to say when 1<y≤2 since y=x−1. And the inverse function is obtained by switching x and y. So when 0≤y≤1 the inverse value is y, while when 1<y≤2 the inverse value is y+1.

Using MathJax with Jekyll - Stack Overflow

If you have sufficient control over the publishing process (e.g. you are running Jekyll yourself), an easy solution is to switch the markdown parser to one that supports TeX. For example, using kramdown:

gem install kramdown

Change the markdown line in _config.yml to

markdown: kramdown

and add something like

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

to _layouts/default.html. Now you can simply mark any mathematics in your posts with $$.

bit manipulation - What are bitwise shift (bit-shift) operators and how do they work? - Stack Overflow
As you can see, the digits have shifted to the left by one position, and the last digit on the right is filled with a zero. You might also note that shifting left is equivalent to multiplication by powers of 2. So 6 << 1 is equivalent to 6 * 2, and 6 << 3 is equivalent to 6 * 8. A good optimizing compiler will replace multiplications with shifts when possible.

Bash command to sum a column of numbers - Stack Overflow

Using existing file:

paste -sd+ infile | bc

Using stdin:

<cmd> | paste -sd+ | bc

Edit: With some paste implementations you need to be more explicit when reading from stdin:

<cmd> | paste -sd+ - | bc

Well, that would be easier with awk: awk 'END { print s } { s += $8 }' infile :)

python - How do you get the magnitude of a vector in Numpy? - Stack Overflow
The function you're after is numpy.linalg.norm. (I reckon it should be in base numpy as a property of an array -- say x.norm() -- but oh well).

import numpy as np
x = np.array([1,2,3,4,5])

You can also feed in an optional order for which norm you want. Say you wanted the 1-norm:

Shell command to sum integers, one per line? - Stack Overflow
awk '{s+=$1} END {print s}' mydatafile


Paste typically merges lines of multiple files, but it can also be used to convert individual lines of a file into a single line. The delimiter flag allows you to pass a x+x type equation to bc.

LaTeX help 1.1 - Spacing in Math Mode []
In a math environment, LaTeX ignores the spaces you type and puts in the spacing that it thinks is best. LaTeX formats mathematics the way it's done in mathematics texts. If you want different spacing, LaTeX provides the following four commands for use in math mode:

\; - a thick space
\: - a medium space
\, - a thin space
\! - a negative thin space

The Simpsons' secret formula: it's written by maths geeks | Television & radio | The Guardian
This prank was planted into the episode by David S Cohen, who later changed his name to David X Cohen, in part to reflect his love of algebra. Cohen joined the writing team of The Simpsons soon after completing a masters degree in computer science at the University of California, Berkeley. While working on "The Wizard of Evergreen Terrace", Cohen took a break in order to write a computer program that would scan through values of x, y, z, and n until it found a pseudo-solution to Fermat's equation.

As soon as the episode aired, Cohen patrolled the online message boards to see if anybody had noticed his fake equation. He eventually spotted a posting that read: "I know this would seem to disprove Fermat's last theorem, but I typed it in my calculator and it worked. What in the world is going on here?"

linux - How do I test if a variable is a number in bash? - Stack Overflow
I use this:

"$var" -eq "$var"

as in:



if [ "$var" -eq "$var" ] 2>/dev/null; then
echo number
echo not a number

Another option:
if ! [[ $yournumber =~ $re ]] ; then
echo "error: Not a number" >&2; exit 1

if statement - How do I test for NaN in Javascript? - Stack Overflow
NaN's are unusual: they are not equal to anything, even themselves. You need to use isNaN(inbperr) to tell whether a value is a NaN or not.
