**find smallest integer such that...**Guys,
thanks a lot for all your answers concerning my last question. I am still
learning a great deal about Mathematica. Here's a second puzzle.
Given an expression
e(k,w) 10^i(-k - w)
find the smallest w such that the term is smaller than a predescribed bound
b. For growing w the term is decreasing and converging towards 0.
Your help is very appreciated.
Best,
Thomas

**finding smallest integer**hi
any one can help me,
i want to write to matlab code to compute the smallest integer L_i , i = 1 : n for the equation
(x_i + y_i) * (sum F_i(r_i) , r_i = 0 : L_i) - z_i*lambda_i*F_i(L_i) > = x_i
where x_i, y_i, z_i, lambda_i, are given vectors for i = 1 : n and
F_i (r_i) is a function of r_i
thank you for your help in advance

**Finding smallest integer division?**In Ruby, what would be the most efficient way to find the smallest
number that an array of different numbers can be divided by with integer
math?
For example:
[1,2] would return 2

[1,2,4] would return 4
[1,2,3,4] would return 12

Establish two variables, smallest and largest. The first number you read is
both the largest *and* smallest. For the rest of the numbers see if that
number overrides an earlier decision.

**Determine largest integer (ANS)**Is there an ANS word to get the largest integer?
I have some code to round up to an even address (for odd length
strings).
I mean something like:
HEX BIGGEST-INT U.
FFFFFFFF ok
Or something like that... I'm getting around it with the following
fragment:

Which obviously works, but might lead to raised eyebrows...

gimme_this_gimme_that@yahoo.com wrote:

I frankly have never seen this syntax for integer with DB2, but
presumably it means 4-byte INTEGER (like FLOAT(4) is a 4-byte float)
INTGER 2 would be a 2 byte smallint and 8 a big integer (8 bytes).
Cheers

**Algorithm to find nth largest or nth smallest in a range**I need to write an algorithm that sheds the outliers in a large data
set, for example, I might want to ignore the smallest 2% of values and
find the next smallest. Boost has a nth_element algorithm, however, it
partially sorts the data. I have a requirement that the data remain in
the orginal order. Of course I could make a copy of the vector or
array and then apply nth_element, but this would be expensive in
memory and would require another pass through the data. Does anyone
know of a more efficient algorithm that meets my requirements?

**Selecting k smallest or largest elements from a large list in python; (benchmarking)**Given: a large list (10,000,000) of floating point numbers;
Task: fastest python code that finds k (small, e.g. 10) smallest

Limitations: in python, using only standard libraries (numpy & scipy
is Ok);
I've tried several methods. With N = 10,000,000, K = 10 The fastest so
far (without item indexes) was pure python implementation
nsmallest_slott_bisect (using bisect/insert). And with indexes
nargsmallest_numpy_argmin (argmin() in the numpy array k times).
