There is a unit square, i.e. a square with side length equal to $\text 1$. Two lines are placed ...

A circle is divided into 360 little parts called degrees.
Why or how did they choose that figure? Is there a very strong reason for that or it just a accidentally choose.

This might be an odd question, but I recently spent a very long time solving a problem in Gamelin's Complex Analysis and I wanted to understand exactly what was making it so difficult for me. ...

I am trying to get a best fit plane in a 3d space of points. I am using an svd as described in https://stackoverflow.com/questions/10900141/fast-plane-fitting-to-many-points. If I use the data ...
