It's a veritable late-night calculus party here.

Andreas and I were going over our respective solutions to the machine learning homework. Our step functions for the sum-of-exponentials problems were very, very similar, with one apparently unexplainable difference. The error was tracked down to where Andreas was doing integration by parts slightly incorrectly. You know, integration by parts. That thing they teach you in freshman calculus. Now, do you suppose I gloated about how I got integration by parts correct and he didn't? Nope. Because fuck if I remember how to do integration by parts. I just asked mathematica. The one place we differed, the only reason we differed was that I used software. I found that amusing for some reason.
