IIRC, the Wim Hof breathing method is comprised of four steps:
1) Breathe fully in, and softly out 30~40 times.
2) Hold breath for as long as one can.
3) Inhale and hold breath for 10~15 seconds.
4) Repeat above steps 3~5 times.
Upon completion, I feel relaxed, and less prone to fatigue.
However, people - myself included - might not necessarily hold world records like Wim Hof after the breathing session.
So, I wondered: "What does Wim Hof do more of from the above steps that enables him to go even further with his proposed method?"
Does he simply breathe in and out more for every set? Does he increase the number of sets? Does he hold the breath longer for every set?
What exactly does he do differently from the above steps that allows him to maximize the benefits?
x = t cos t, y = t sin t; t = π(pi)
My progress thus far: dy/dx = (dy/dt)/(dx/dt) = (t cos t + sin t)/(-t sin t + cos t) = π
Thus, the integral of dy/dx is π*x + C.
Therefore, y = π*x + C
NOW, I've checked the answer key and it says C = π2
How is this so? More specifically, what is the intuition behind C being equal to the value of the parameter squared?
IIRC, the MCTS rollouts determine how advantageous each move is in a given position.
So, if it's the MCTS coming up with the solutions, what is the purpose of implementing Neural Networks in the first place?
How does it differ from an MCTS-only chess AI?
My mental health counselor suggested that it might help to meet a psychiatrist and receive medication for depression and anxiety -the latter being the bigger problem.
I am still unsure on whether I want medication.
So, I wanted to ask if running on a daily basis can significantly help such people suffering from anxiety and depression as me, to a point where medication would not be required.
I can't function without a minimum of 100mg of caffeine.
Without coffee I am not in the mood to do anything(even surfing through the web), and think gloomy thoughts.
I have a counseling appointment next week, but I am wondering what I could do in the meantime to fix this issue.
The given surface is rotated about the y-axis, and I am to find the area of the resulting surface.
y = (1/4)x2 - (1/2)ln x, and 1 <= x <= 2.
Thus, dy/dx = (1/2)x - 1/(2x) = (x2 -1)/(2x)
So, I have the formula: s = ∫(from x=1 to x=2) 2(pi)x * (1 + (x4 - 2x2 + 1)/(4x2 )) 1/2 dx
Then, substituting u = 1 + ((x4 - 2x2 + 1)/(4x2 )), I have du = (1/2)*(x4 - 1)/(x3 ) dx
And after finding the new limits corresponding to 'u'(1 and 25/16), I'm stuck.
This question might be more suited for /r/ComputerChess, but I decided to post here nevertheless, considering the relative inactivity of that sub-reddit.
From what I've understood from David Silver's youtube lecture, Markov Decision Process is largely characterized by rewards and discount factors - the latter being used to determine how far the computer looks ahead from a certain state to calculate how beneficial a move was.
However, the reward given for each move is unclear - that is, players don't know whether it yields victory or defeat until the end of the game.
So, I wanted to ask: Does Alphazero use a Markovian model, or does it use a model-free approach?
edit: It appears that Monte Carlos Tree Search - a system in which a value of a node is determined by the number of wins it had in x amount of randomized games - is important.

I was playing black, and my opponent white.
In this instance, my opponent played Bxf5. He essentially sacrificed his bishop for a pawn.
What compensation does white get from sacrificing a bishop in such manner?
Karate seems to allow punches to the head, whereas TKD bans it.
Otherwise, I don't see how the two differ in any significant way.
If this sounds awfully ignorant, feel free to enlighten me :)
Somehow, I am likely to induce dreams lying flat on my back.
However, doing so also induces severe headaches and sharp abdominal pain.
My questions are as follows: 1.Why is sleeping flat on my back helping me induce dreams? 2.How is it also causing pain when I'm dreaming? 3.What can I do to stop the pain?
Because short-track skaters exclusively turn towards the left, they would have to put more weight on the left leg. Which in turn means their left leg would be more developed than their right leg? no?
Long story short, I am struggling academically and socially.
The conclusion I drew from reading responses to my earlier post and other similar posts is that I should seek therapy.
But my entire family is on a tight budget, so I feel stuck.
What should I do?

I am a college student in my early 20's.
I was verbally bullied in kindergarten, elementary, and the first two years in middle-school for being "slow", and to this day I have zero friends. People have been annoyed by my inability to understand simple conversations in one go. Often, they would repeat the phrase many times, sometimes with an explanation becoming increasingly verbose each time.
My life would be better in so many ways if I could fix this problem. It hurts to see my peers take photos with groups of close friends on social media, simply because they were able to communicate better than I could.
This inability doesn't just affect me socially, but academically as well. During high school, I couldn't keep track of the teachers' words, so by the time classes were finished, I would start at zero. The grades weren't the problem, for I was able maintain decent GPA through sheer grit. Rather, it was my inability to find balance between social-life and studying, because I would have to study longer than others.
Now, as a college student who is faced with harder concepts, I am neither academically nor socially competent. The hours I've put in studying limited the time to interact with others, but also didn't save me from F's.
I feel lost, and I believe it is rooted in one single problem: being slow at processing verbal information.
I use the Headspace app, since the voice I hear relaxes me when I meditate. When stressed, these 10-minute guided meditation sessions help calm me, but only during the meditation. Afterwards, negative thoughts re-emerge. What can be done about this?
It should be a very easy concept, but somehow I have trouble understanding it.
When looking at 'f inverse of x', you visualize the arrows going from 'y' to 'x'.
But when you look at 'f inverse of y', how are you supposed to visualize it, in terms of an arrow diagram?

I get 5.5 hours of sleep before waking up. Then, I don't try to stay awake for a few minutes, but instead use affirmations immediately as I drift back to sleep. Otherwise, I cannot fall back to sleep. However, my affirmations last seconds, not even a minute, before falling back asleep. I also cannot recognize my dreams before waking up, even though I can remember them. This has happened to me for the past two days. Am I doing something wrong? or does it take more time to become lucid?
