At the moment, I am no longer a student. I do have a MS (2014) in Mechanical Engineering (Control Systems), a BS (2011) in Mathematics, and a BS (2011) in Finance. I am interested in PDEs, ODEs, Complex Analysis, Control Theory, Probability, Kalman Filtering, and Compressed Sensing.

I am waiting to hear back from some universities about my application for a PhD in EE, or if I can find a job that pays well, I might decide to that instead.

Currently, I am reading Candide by Voltaire. In Mathematics, I am reading Complex Analysis by Ahlfors and refreshing myself with Abstract Algebra and Real Analysis by re-reading Dummit and Foote and Rudin, respectively. Afterwords, I will probably read Lady Chatterley's Lover by D.H. Lawerence, a different Complex Analysis book, and a book on Measure Theory.

There is a Mathematica stack exchange. You posted this on math.

comment Use Solve on a column vector while taking the derivative
@bills I wanted to find an analytic solution for any phase off shift and amplitude F_i

@b.gatessucks I have been running the code for 12mins and still nothing though.

@b.gatessucks that didn't work either.

@rm-rf thanks. Do you want me to delete this post or not since the answer is on SO?

comment Want more vibrant colors in plots
@rm-rf also, I just need to add: jet[u_?NumericQ] := Blend[ {{0, RGBColor[0, 0, 9/16]}, {1/9, Blue}, {23/63, Cyan}, {13/21, Yellow}, {47/63, Orange}, {55/63, Red}, {1, RGBColor[1/2, 0, 0]}}, u] and then I can do colorfunction->"jet"?

@rm-rf so that answer you linked will add jet to the Mathematica or just in the instances it is saved in?

@belisarius I used rainbow in the linked post and in this post I used TemperatureMap.

Also, is there a way to speed up the finding of c? When I increase n, the calculation of c slows down immensely.
