Pepsi Gameday 00006

We love our sports here at Panda Rose and we had a fantastic time working on the Roger’s Hometown Heroes project. When we were approached to develop another fun green screen program for Pepsi and Ruffles Grey Cup Game Day MVP we got really excited and go to work with a really fun interactive green screen program.

The program puts you in the Stadium, running through the entry way as the MVP of your favorite team! You can run though as your own great self, or in your favorite team’s uniform.Pepsi Gameday 00002

That was one of our favorite moments from last year. This year, we’re looking forward to creating even more fun and exciting programs to help people connect to their favorite activities.

Henry Smith was a mathematician of the 19th century who worked mainly in number theory. He especially did important work on the representation of numbers by various quadratic forms. We have discussed how even in something seemingly settled, like Joseph Lagrange’s theorem that every natural number is representable as a sum of four squares, new questions are always around—especially when one considers complexity.

Today Ken and I want to discuss a private slip of forgetfulness, and how often others may have done the same.

For a variety of reasons we recently were thinking about one of the most basic questions in linear algebra: the solvability of

$latex displaystyle Ax = b, &fg=000000$

where $latex {A}&fg=000000$ and $latex {b}&fg=000000$ are fixed and $latex {x}&fg=000000$ is to be determined. Over a field there is a polynomial time algorithm that determines whether there is a solution and finds one if there is. The…
