Enjoy,

The big deal about Reverse Polish Notation (RPN) is that it eliminates the need for operator precedence and brackets. We will symbolise multiplication by the "*" symbol rather than x to keep with programming tradition.

Why brackets are needed

take the sum

2*3+4 can be interpreted 2 ways

2*(3+4)=14 & (2*3)+4=10, without brackets typically we assume multiplication has higher precedence than addition ,in most programming languages in that multiplication is done before addition, meaning that we interpret the otherwise

ambiguous sum 2*3+4 as (2*3)+4 in computer languages like C.

In short brackets are a bad inelegant idea in Mathematics and never should have been invented,

they are as stupid as Roman Numerals.

Wikipedia RPN explanation here which is quite thorough.

Well what use is this for programming and science?

Well we can count all possible equations within a solution space in reverse polish notation, somewhat similar to a Turing machine can compute al…

Hi there,

The reason I did this page, was, because, I am having difficulty getting a teaching job, so I want to propogate everything I know, about programming, before, I kick the bucket ,in 20 odd years time, Fast.

I am not sure if all the links are, "legal", free copies of books, but I verified they are genuine & if you are poor, I hope the publishers, &, book sellers, don't mind you taking a pdf.

If you really like the books, please buy the originals, or, get legitimate copy for your library. Printing them off on an inkjet printer, will, only cost you much more money than buying originals, printer companies don't make the money off the razors, they make it off the blades,

If I get a "cease and desist" email from publishers, I may have to take some/all of the links down.

The links, i hope, will teach someone, how to program, beyond, what a typical degree in computer science will get you, so, I hope they save you college fees which might be $100,…

RSA the encryption algorithm that secures all the Worlds Banks for since 1975 is based on a mathematical problem which has stumped the best Mathematicians in the World since the Stone Age, the factoring of large numbers.

The guts of RSA is based on choosing two large Prime Numbers, numbers only divisible by one and itself, typically over 100 decimal digits long. Multiplying them together, this is your magic number & then let some misfortunate hacker try to figure out what the 2 numbers are. If he can find them RSA is hacked.

So simple a 10 year old can understand the problem, so why the hell cant a 12 year old crack it was beyond me. Mathematicians I know said that short of a Quantum Computer RSA is safe & can't be cracked but they did not say why, it was just a belief they had.

One thing related to prime numbers which Mathematicians do a really bad job at explaining to the layman is the Riemann Hypothesis which relates prime numbers to a curve in some way, it has improve…
