Re: ACF Nationals question thanks/discussion

I think the question on Boltzmann's constant contained an error. I believe it said that the Stokes-Einstein relation involves the chemical potential, which it does not. In said relation, mu stands for the mobility, not the chemical potential.

Here's a fun one from the final round of ACF Nationals:

Right: Castle
Wrong: Gentlemen's Club

This got a big laugh out of the crowd. I'm not going to attempt to explain it.

From the surjective question: "More generally, a function is said to have this property if and only if the composition of it and its inverse is the identity function." This seems to be false. If a function is surjective, it does not necessarily even have an inverse. Possibly a right inverse was mean...

I can only speak for myself, but I agree with David. We knew we would be playing a final no matter what our advantage, and the final rounds made it pretty clear that Chicago deserved to win that tournament. I don't really see anything wrong with the rule either. Our experience shows that a two win a...

I'm not going to ACF nationals. If Michigan B exists, Ryan Westbrook will be on it, so it won't be D2.

Applied to Harvard, Yale, MIT, and University of Michigan.

So far I've gotten into Michigan, been rejected from MIT, and haven't heard back from Harvard and Yale.

I'll be playing QB wherever I end up.
