**How to get the square root sign inside a xlabel? #2**Hello
A am having difficulties putting the square root sign inside
a xlabel, the greek symbols a working though. What am i
doing wrong? I sure it can be done!?
figure
plot(xData,yData,'*'),
ylabel('\Delta\theta','HorizontalAlignment','center','FontSize',13),
xlabel(' \square{f}','FontSize',13)
The \Delta\theta sign works great (however it would be nice
to have horisontal text), but i cannot figure out how to get
square sign inside the figure, Matlab just replies: Warning:
Unable to
interpret TeX string
"\square{f}"
Any help ...

**How to get all roots of a square root?**For example.
Matlab returns 0+1.0000i for

what should I do if I want to get both 0+1.0000i and 0-1.0000i?
Thanks a lot!

by convention, most programs return the positive extraction of the root.
(this is called the principal root).
sqrt(4) gives 2, not 2 AND -2 even though both are valid square roots
for the number 4.

**Square root of a square**Hi all,
Mathematica evaluates FullSimplify[Sqrt[x^2]] to Sqrt[x^2], while it
tells me that FullSimplify[Sqrt[x^2] == x] is True.
Are these the expected answers?
-- m
FullSimplify[Sqrt[x^2] == x]
True
This is wrong since for real x, Sqrt is always non-negative and x could be =
negative.
x = -3;
Sqrt[x^2] == x
False

**Getting a % sign inside a \url{...} ?**I need a footnote with a URL containing a % sign; if I use

and if I use \footnote{\url{...\%20...}} I get "\%20" instead of "%20"

(I can't use \verb in \footnote, and I like the way \url breaks long

Hmmm... I don't think reals or doubles can hold the square root of an
int64/qword. Perhaps grab a bignum library?

**Root is root no more**Hi All,
Has anyone had this problem, and If so any ideas what happened.
I was asked to add three users to a Solaris 9 server, these users were to
have uid of o(root) as they were the accounts these users were to use if
they required root access.
No problem I thought, and copy and pasted the root entry three times into
the passwd file, changed the user name
cchsu etc, cchsu being the first root uid account.
pwconv'd the file, added the passwd for these accounts, changed the $HOME
and though no more about it.
This morning I come in, logged in as root, and was checking some file and

**Square Root**Is there a way to get an accurate square root?
This means that a negative number should return the appropriate complex
number. I have been having some trouble with this in a program that
solves quadratic equations recently. Ideally but not necessarily it
should be able to get the square root of complex numbers as well.
NB Neither -2**0.5 or Math::sqrt(-2) return appropriate answers. (-2 and
an error respectively)
Thanks in advance.

It's not surprising at all. First, let's insert the parentheses so
we can see it as Ruby does:

Do a google search on java math.sqrt The first link will give you the
class definition which you can use. Basically, this should be in the
comp.lang.java.help newsgroup as it is pretty much rank beginner stuff,
and that group is more for people just getting started with java.

**square root**Could someone tell me roughly how long the square root of a 32 bit
floating point takes? (i.e. how many processor cycles)
I'm trying to figure out how fast I can make a program that ray-traces
a bunch of spheres. I think the slowest part of the process is the
square root (for solving the quadratic of the ray/sphere intersection),
but I'm not sure.
Thanks.
Whatever algorithm you find, the fastest is NOT to take any square
root. In most cases you use the square root to compute a distance and
then compare it to something:
r = sqrt(x^2+y^2+z^2)
if r>d then
you can do the same ...

But I am curious if we can access it directly from the module (in

I'm trying to use gnuplot to plot a 2D spectrum with its projections.
My problem is that I'd like to have the 2D contour plot in square
ratio but then I cannot properly align the projections since I don't

For more details, here is how I proceed :
First, I splot the 2D spectrum in contour mode.
I save the contour drawing with the table terminal as proposed in
another post, to be able to align the 2D plot with the projections.

When you use su -c or sudo, root privileges are dropped as soon as the
command is complete. /var/log/auth.log shows what command was executed,
instead of just showing when someone logged in as root.
