Hi Kevin,
The unit is inverse-steradian, sr^-1 or 1/sr, because
BRDF = Radiance / Irradiance
= [W * m^-2 * sr^-1] / [W * m^-2]
= [sr^-1].
Or, if you prefer,

**22.2.2.2.2 Facet locale and function put**If I use facet num_put that belongs to the Polish locale to put a number

**Using function with 2 outputs as input to function requiring 2 inputs**I have been using a line similar to:
V = complex(pol2cart(theta, r));
but have discovered that it is giving me a real output regardless of
the values of theta and r. Apparently only the first output of
pol2cart is passed to complex.
Is it possible to do this without having to create temporary
variables such as:
[Re, Im] = pol2cart(theta, r);
V = complex(Re, Im);
Thanks,

**Apache 2.2 lost some SSL functionality from 2.0?**I want to move my systems from CentOS4 to 5 and am currently checking out

**Inverse function #2 #2**I have two questions:
1. Is it possible to find the inveses function for one-to-one function in Mathematica 7?
For example the inverse of 5/(2-x) is 2-(5/x). I have tried Inverse and InverseFunction but I cannot produce the inverse function.
Can anyone explain how to get Mathematica to produce this result? (See attached output screenshot.)
2. Is it possible to change the format of the output for a recprical?
For example, instead of writing the output of Inverse[5/(2-x)] as (5/(2-x))^-1, can the output be set to produce (2-x)/5?

It says:

Notice, it says BETWEEN.
But when I ask for 2 points, between 2 and 2:

May be mathematically this is ok? i.e. there are infinite points between

Maybe it should say "generates N points between X1 and X2, inclusive."

**2 * 2 * 2 * 2 or pow(2, 4)?**Hi ,
I hope this isn't too trivial to ask, but I'm evaluating a polynomial
that involve lots of terms like x^2y^2z^3, and although I can use the
power function pow(a, b), I wonder if just writing x*x*y*y*z*z*z for

Or is it all the same?

Yes, but not in standard C. Try a Linux group, or comp.unix.programmer.

Yes: man dladdr. You'll probably need to give gcc the -rdynamic flag to

**How about the distribution of a*(x^2)+(1-a)*(y^2)**Hi,
I have a question about random variable distribution. Please help me if
you could.
We know x and y are independent normal random variables. "a" is a
constant between 0 and 1. We want to know the distribution of
a*(x^2)+(1-a)*(y^2). From probability text books, it is easy to know
that the sum of two independant normal RVs'(They, RVs, have the same
mean and variance) square is chi-square distribution. For my question,
they are weighted with "a" and "1-a". I have no answer.
Anyone can tell me? Thanks in advance.
