Stefano, please forgive my ignorance, as I have an Associates Degree in
Music Recording, and not a traditional CS degree. I haven't had the
higher math classes you and many others have had here.
I understand Algebra and Trigonometry ok, so if we can simplify these
algorithms into a "pseudo-code" so I can wrap my head around them, I
will be happy to jump in the discussion. As it is now, It's going
over my head.
I understand the Calculus ideas of functions (i.e. V(r,t)). What throws
me are the Sigmas (I studied Ancient Greek, so I know what the letters are).
I know they are meant to represent sums, or statistical data. I don't know
what the letter above the sigma or below the sigma is supposed to signify.
If you don't feel up to giving me a quick math lesson so I can grok the
concepts fully, can you point me to a resource where I can teach myself?
