    Hey guys!

    I am new to the forum, even though I registered some time ago, I didn't really have the time to be active on the forum and/or ready to contribute. But at the moment I feel that I have the time and possibility to do so

    I am a Earth Science undergraduate, at Uppsala University, Sweden and currently my plans are to continue with a masters in hydrology/hydrogeology, but that is not written in stone

    When I am not out on field trips, enjoying my "Bedrock of Sweden" - poster, or drinking beer with my class mates, I like watching series, films, reading science/technology articles and working out (to name a few things :P).

    See you all on the board!

    Welcome to the fourm. Sweden is 'proper' country with 'real' rocks. You have very few of those weak, young sedimentary sequences pretending to be rocks. It's mainly proper hard rocks. (You can tell I was strongly influenced by one of my teachers who thought of everything Cambrian and above as superficial drift deposits.)

    Thanks guys!

    Yeah, Ophiolite we do have all those hardcore rocks here in Sweden, the many variaities of granite, gneiss and lots of ore I am glad that the recent ice age took away all those loose depositions However, that makes the geology of Sweden a bit less exiting and you need to travel for a good while to see something else (on a field trip last fall we had to travel to Bornholm to look at something new, sedimentary rocks, most importantly Trias - Jura - Cretaceous :P)

    @ thyristor - Tack! and what does that equation mean?
    Yes, we have to divide up our time like that, between our politics and our equations. But to me our equations are far more important, for politics are only a matter of present concern. A mathematical equation stands forever.

    That equation is my own version of Euler's identity, namely that . Instead of writing "+1" I write "", where is the golden ratio.

    This is of the many identities that satisfies, and it is essentially derived from it's definition: if and are two numbers, then iff . So if and satisfy this, we know that , that is , as desired.

    The reason I write the equation in the above form is because it contains so many fundamental mathematical symbols and operators: "1", "0", "=", subtraction, addition, multiplication, division and exponentiation. :-D

    Edited beacuse of typo.
