**rules for using functions as basis vectors**I am trying to establish some rules to use a triad of functions as a
triad of basis vectors (i.e., Frenet-Seret formalism). I have achieved
most of the desired functionality but I can not get Mathematica to
properly expand dot products across parantheses. Here is my code.
(* define the tangent vector of the curve r[u] *)
r /: D[r[u_], u_] := t[u];
(* define the dot product relations between the triad vectors *)
{t /: t[u_].t[u_] := 1, t /: t[u_].n[u_] := 0, t /: t[u_].b[u_] := 0,
n /: n[u_].t[u_] := 0, n /: n[u_].n[u_] := 1, n /: n[u_].b[u_] := 0,
b /: b[u_].t[u_] := 0, b /: b[u...

**rules for using functions as basis vectors #2**Thanks for the help but I'm hesitant to alter the attributes of Dot.
Also, it is not the orderless aspect of Dot that gives me my main
difficulty. I do not know how to specify the necessary rules. Here is an
updated version of my code.
(* here are the rules for dot products between the basis elements *)
{t /: t[u_].t[u_] := 1, t /: t[u_].n[u_] := 0, t /: t[u_].b[u_] := 0};

**Cramer's rule using LinearAlgebra package?**Using the older linalg package, I could implement Cramer's rule, given
a matrix A and vector by (for example):
> A1:=copyinto(b,copy(A),1,1);
> det(A1)/det(A);
But I can't work out how to do something similar with the newer
LinearAlgebra package. For example:
> A1:=A;
> A1[1..4,1]:=b;
(for a 4x4 system). But this changes both A1 and A, so that
> Determinant(A1)/Determinant(A);
produces 1. If I assign A1:=copy(A) the same thing happens. Clearly I
want to write the vector b into a column of a copy of A, without
changing the original matrix A. S...

**Transform list of numbers into pure functions using replace rule**Hello,
I'm developed a program to invert satellite observations into
geophysical variables such as forest biomass. One of the input
parameters are the errors in the observation channels which can be
either constant or a function. To be consistent the program expects
all errors to be functions but they can also be constant functions
e.g. if the error is 4 then the input parameter is "4&".
I've however hit a problem with the replacement rule that allows me to
transform all input errors into a function. The following works as
expected in that constants in the li...

**Calculating local maximum: how to use 'peaks' function, or which other function to use?**Hello,
I've been trying to run that program:
http://www.owlnet.rice.edu/~elec431/projects96/digitalbb/formantscode.html
Shortly, the goal is to locate local maximums of a graph named 'h' and plotted as semilogy(f,abs(h)).
It was defined:
w = hamming(length(x)); % x is the signal
f = w.*fs/(2*pi); % fs is the sampling rate of x
Next, 'h' is calculated.
Local maximums of 'h' are located with this part of code:
[floc,fmag] = peaks(abs(h));
allfmnts = f(floc);
However, it returns an error:

**Use getdate function in a own Function**Hi,
I have written a stored proc with some temporary tables and also used

is that we can only use extended sprocs or function inside a sproc.
Now if try to write the stored proc directly inside a fuction ie copy
paste after changing my temp tables to tables the problem is , i get a
error invalid use of getdate in sproc.What do i do to get something
for my results inside a table.
Thanks in advance.

**calling different functions but using one name; or assigning a function to a function?**Hi Folks,
I have a program written long ago that uses a function repeatedly. The
function contains an algorithm that returns a real value. Now I need to
update the program with another function that is an new version of the
algorithm. But I also need to maintain the ability to use the old
function/algorithm at times. They would never be used at the same time.
The user makes a selection of which algorithm to use. So what I am trying
to do is (in pseudo code)
function old_algo.....
function new_algo .....
And a lot of code that is
output:= algo(num1,num2,num3,num4,...

**error using function within a function** "find" previously appeared to be used as a function or command, conflicting with its
use here as the name of a variable.
A possible cause of this error is that you forgot to initialize the
variable, or you have initialized it implicitly using load or eval.
This is the message I get. I'm writing a new function, and use find within this new function. It seems I can't use it. Why? Thanks a lot.

**Defining functions using the output of an other function**Hi
Is there any possibility in mathematica to define a function using te output
of another function such as D[] oder Solve[] ?
for ex.

That actually does not work, just in order to illustrate what i am talking
about^^
Thanks a lot

Hi Eckhardt,
the following is one of plenty possibilities to achieve what you probably
were looking for (I have replaced = by == within Solve, otherwise it
doesn't make much sense):
y[x_] = y /. First[Solve[y == x^2, y, x]]
note that I am using Set (=) instead of SetDelayed (:=) for the defi...
