    Pure strategy in Game Theory

    Hello. One of the very basic questions I have in Game Theory is about Pure strategy. Based on the reading as I understand it, "Pure Strategy is the only strategy for the player which is also the winning strategy." Am I correct about this understanding? On the other hand, Mixed strategy...

    Primary groups and pure subgroups.

    Hi: Let G be a p-primary group that is not divisible. Assume there is $x \in G[p]$ that is divisible by $p^k$ but not by $p^{k+1}$ and let $x= p^k y$. I must prove that $<y> \cap nG \subset n<y>$. $p^{k+1}y= px= 0$. In case $(n,p)=1$, there is $b \in <y>$ such that $y=nb$ and then $sy= snb=...

    What good is a (pure) mathematician?

    I don't mean this question to offend, but it seems like the right wording to me. I am wondering: if one studies math and becomes a mathematician, and tries to solve the equations unsolved for mankind or tries to develop new systems or new questions, what in truth has he done? I suppose we...

    Are you skeptical of pure math?

    I'm a logician not a mathematician but I want to eventually work on logicism. That is where you try to show that math is a subset of logic. Essentially what you would do is show that all the math symbols can be expressed in the standard logical symbols: v & = -> ~ and a few other symbols. I've...

    Brainstorming - Help design a pure math op sys at bit level?

    The plan is an absolutely minimalist math software defined at the bit level, statistically converging toward its defined behaviors but always with an exponentially small chance it will do something else. It will be offered to everyone and capable of becoming the foundation of a complete global...

    Pure mathematician proves Pythagorean Theorem Wrong

    Apparently he said that it's not really accurate if you want to be picky and the actual formula is c^2 = a^2 + b^2 - 0.000001e, where e is Euler's Number. So yes, there is a bit of inaccuracy here. It was proven using advanced calculus and so it looks like Pythagorean was a bit wrong all...
