Re: Problem 082

Doesn't it make the most sense that the row in a file corresponds to a row in a matrix?

Re: Importing libraries into Python

And now you first have to download the library from the internet. Some libraries come immediately with Python download and some you need to download manually. The easiest way to do it is to call: "pip install numpy" in the command line. If that doesnt work, google how to install numpy and you should...

Re: Problem 082

They are given as rows. So the first row in the text file is the first row of the matrix and so on.

Re: Some features that are not available on this site

It's a pointless debate really. But I will point out a few spots which I do find aggresive and that I wouldn't use if I just wanted to make a suggestion. ... Plus, the names are sorted by letter, but within each letter it isn't alphabetical!! ... (Notice the double exclamation mark at the end) ' ......

Re: Some features that are not available on this site

Pretty aggresive post imo. 1) You can't get private messages on Project Euler site. Does it happen very often that you get private messages here on the forum? 2) Wherever I look, members are sorted either by the place they completed the problem or by the number of problems solved. Could you pinpoint...

Re: Why does the amount of 80% problems keep changing?

But the difficulty might still change after those 100 solvers right? I believe that the difficulty of problem 541 went up from 85 to 90 some time after I managed to solve it. I think the difficulty of problem 589 is also slowly increasing :D Or are just the first 100 solvers considered as a metric f...

Re: Problem 054

I do think this is considered a straight 5 high.

Are there many hands where this is a problem? Otherways you can try 2 or 3 values if there are a few hands with this occurence.

Re: Errors/Warnings/Bugs

Yes, many of the problems here are based on well known formulas, theorems, algorithms and so on. If you are researching a problem, you are learning and you might also come indirectly across the solution. It happens. I don't think there is anything you can do about it. But researching a topic and sea...

Another way of saying "last 9 digits" would be mod(1,000,000,000).

Problem difficulty promotion

I see that sometimes it happens that some previous problems get their difficulty increased even far past 100 solvers mark. Is there any way to know which ones? :D

Re: Project Euler Style Sheet Update

I like most of the changes. Good job :) Since you are doing it all in your spare time, I dont think I want to bother you with things I dont like :D However I agree that some color change should be done to solution discussion forum. I think adding some brownish like background color to top line of ea...

Re: Weird runtime behavior

Such low discrepancies dont matter much. It depends on whether how much computing power your computer is allowing the program to have during running. Sometimes it will not have the maximum possible computing power and it will cause a bit higher running time. Test the program on higher inputs, for ex...

Yep It was a typo.

Re: Some problem and user statistics

Thank you for the ideas. I will soon try to check those too. There are really many ways to look at those problems depending on what time (according to your local time) the problem was published and what the difficulty of the problem was. I would guess that users are most effective for problems publi...

Some problem and user statistics

Since the fastest solvers table for problem 650 was filled pretty quick (a little over 6 hours) I got an idea to redo some analysis on problems which I did as a project for some course at university 3 - 4 years ago. Anyway I hope you will find the statistics interesting. I definitely did. I took fas...

Re: Hairsplitting Curiosity (w/ Alliteration)...

This is the guy you are looking for :)

Sadly you cannot track all the aliases. All you can get is the persons current alias or his original name. However if the person is regularly changing his aliases, he will be harder to track down in problem threads :)
