this thread today, where the OP was attempting to solve a problem regarding counting divisors. Here, the use of a multiplicative function provided means to optimize when counting divisors for larger numbers.

First, let's define two terms- multiplicative and completely multiplicative. A multiplicative function f...]]>Thu, 04 Jul 2013 03:07:00 +0000http://www.dreamincode.net/forums/blog/847/entry-4494-the-importance-of-multiplicative-functions/Which Math Course(s) Should I Take?

This semester, I am taking a class called Applied Combinatorics, which has a large Graph Theory component. Today, my professor was introducing planar graphs. We got sidetracked on the Four Color Theorem, which states that a planar graph requires no more than four distinct colors so that no adjacent faces have the same color. I have been working on...Tue, 04 Sep 2012 00:06:00 +0000http://www.dreamincode.net/forums/blog/847/entry-4181-graph-theory-love-four-color-theorem/<![CDATA[Q&A With the Experts- Answers]]>

ranting about my Data Structures I class. I heard back today that my credit by exam was successful. In order to complete my credit by exam, I had to complete a program and a written test, getting a 70% or greater on both. The program was representative of the major project taking about half of the semester.

Today I had my first lab for Data Structures I, the same course I am working to test out of and drop. It was brutal. I wanted to beat someone. The assignment was straight-forward. Design a Computer class with three fields, the standard getter/setter methods, and a toString() method basically. The JUnit was new for me, but pretty easy.
