Hello, welcome to Wikipedia. Template:Opentask

You might find these links helpful in creating new pages or helping with the above tasks: How to edit a page, How to write a great article, Naming conventions, Manual of Style. You should read our policies at some point too.

If you have any questions, see the help pages, add a question to the village pump or ask me on my talk page. I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian!

  • You can sign your name using three tildes, like this: ~~~. If you use four, you can add a datestamp too.
  • If you ever think a page or image should be deleted, please list it at the votes for deletion page. There is also a votes for undeletion page if you want to retrieve something that you think should not have been deleted.

Again, welcome! - UtherSRG 14:26, 6 May 2004 (UTC)

Thanks for adding the VfD header to the US Imperialism list. I forgot to do that when I made the nomination. Rossami

Thank you for expanding Timeline of algorithms. It was one of the first articles I created, and a pretty lousy stub at that, and I had pretty much forgotten about its existence. Now I don't feel embarrassed about having been part of its creation any more :)

Keep up the good work! Fredrik 15:28, 13 May 2004 (UTC)

Thanks for all your recent pages. Could you take a look at some of the technical talk in the spline area? I have just redirected control point to B-spline - but I'm sure it would be helpful to sort out knot and control point and some other terms a bit more centrally.

Meandric number 2

I couldn't help noticing that is 1, not even. Ancheta Wis 16:23, 18 Jul 2004 (UTC) Upon re-reading, I see the notation distinguishes open meadric number from semi-meandric number etc. Never mind ;-0)


Please check the discussion on the subtraction article, I think you made the existing graphics and I was wondering if you could make replacements.

Chebyshev nodes

I did some heavy editing of Chebyshev polynomials and merged your page Chebyshev nodes into Chebyshev polynomials. I think Chebyshev polynomials gives a better context to discuss the application of Chebyshev nodes.MathMartin 21:06, 15 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Forget what I just said. I changed my opinion :) It is better to have a separate page on Chebyshev nodes as they are not directly related to Chebyshev polynomial. I think the Chebyshev polynomial page should discuss the properties of the Chebyshev polynomial. If the roots of the Chebyshev polynomial are used in numerical analysis this should be discussed on a separate page. Some people just want to read about the best nodes for polynomial interpolation and they should not have to wade through the whole Chebyshev page.MathMartin 14:52, 17 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Powerset construction

I recently wrote an article on the powerset construction for converting NFAs to DFAs. Since you are the primary author of the page on NFAs and linked this, I thought I might be able to solicit your feedback and improvements on this new article. Thanks a lot. Deco 23:33, 12 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Article Licensing

Hi, I've started a drive to get users to multi-license all of their contributions that they've made to either (1) all U.S. state, county, and city articles or (2) all articles, using the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike (CC-by-sa) v1.0 and v2.0 Licenses or into the public domain if they prefer. The CC-by-sa license is a true free documentation license that is similar to Wikipedia's license, the GFDL, but it allows other projects, such as WikiTravel, to use our articles. Since you are among the top 1000 Wikipedians by edits, I was wondering if you would be willing to multi-license all of your contributions or at minimum those on the geographic articles. Over 90% of people asked have agreed. For More Information:

To allow us to track those users who muli-license their contributions, many users copy and paste the "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" template into their user page, but there are other options at Template messages/User namespace. The following examples could also copied and pasted into your user page:

Option 1
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions, with the exception of my user pages, as described below:


Option 2
I agree to [[Wikipedia:Multi-licensing|multi-license]] all my contributions to any [[U.S. state]], county, or city article as described below:

Or if you wanted to place your work into the public domain, you could replace "{{DualLicenseWithCC-BySA-Dual}}" with "{{MultiLicensePD}}". If you only prefer using the GFDL, I would like to know that too. Please let me know what you think at my talk page. It's important to know either way so no one keeps asking. -- Ram-Man (comment| talk)

New Mathematics Wikiportal

I noticed you've done some work on Mathematics articles. I wanted to point out to you the new Mathematics Wikiportal- more specifically, to the Mathematics Collaboration of the Week page. I'm looking for any math-related stubs or non-existant articles that you would like to see on Wikipedia. Additionally, I wondered if you'd be willing to help out on some of the Collaboration of the Week pages.

I encourage you to vote on the current Collaboration of the Week, because I'm very interested in which articles you think need to be written or added to, and because I understand that I cannot do the enormous amount of work required on some of the Math stubs alone. I'm asking for your help, and also your critiques on the way the portal is set up.

Please direct all comments to my user-talk page, the Math Wikiportal talk page, or the Math Collaboration of the Week talk page. Thanks a lot for your support! ral315 02:54, Feb 11, 2005 (UTC)

Very nice use of source-based evidence. I wish more wikipedians would take the time to cite evidence in favor of the opinions they banter about. Unfortunately, RJ seems to think that general encyclopedias are a valid means of contradicting primary source evidence. Revkat 15:14, 8 November 2005 (UTC)

Articles For Deletion

Hi, one or both of the following situations applies to you, and you may therefore be interested in related discussions.

You may also be interested in a discussion of whether or not the entire text of a whole bible chapter should be contained in the 6 articles concerning those specific chapters, and whether or not they should only use the translations favoured by fundamentalists. This is being discussed at Wikipedia:Centralized discussion/Whole bible chapter text.

Is the richardsson text correct ?

Hi I am a beginner in this forum, as well as in Richardson extrapolation. I have been trying the richardson extrapolation on (1+x*h)^(1/h). First with step size h=0.1, then halving the stepsize, approaching closer and cloaser to the value e. Let me call the approximations as a function on Stepsize A(h), A(h/2), A(h/4) etc. I've noticed that the recurence formula that you give does not yield as exact results as when you calculate the richardson approximate A_r as A_r1=2*A(h/2)-A(h) A_r2=[4*A(h/4)-A(h)]/3 A_r3= [8*A(h/8)-A(h)]/7


this gives superior results compared to what the recurrence relation that you describe gives Example [4*A(h/4)-A(h/2)]/3, which I think that you mean gives a much bigger error than


When calculating the richardson approximate as above the accuracy gets better by one order.

Hi. I wonder - is there any specific reason not to include some capital forms of greek letters? This is not really a big deal, but i'd have liked to find that page as complete as possible... Speaking of which, i forgot how to include the backslash character while writing in TeX. :"> Could you please include it in your page? Or may i, if i do find it myself before you answer? -- Jokes Free4Me 09:01, 16 June 2007 (UTC)

Meander (mathematics)

Hi Jaredwf! Would you please add some external links or information about meanders and meadric numbers. Few of us in Hungarian Wiki are interested in translate the article and we need some more info. (hu:meander (matematika)) Thanks 'o lot! Mozó (talk) 17:15, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Arena firewatch.jpg
