No, I'm not saying that. You can read what I wrote above. It should be clear.

Well, you accuse AiryDiscus of not knowing Quantum Electrodynamics. But, apparently your own understanding is lacking. For one, you need to figure out and use the Jacobian that causes the ...

Here is what is needed to be interpreted properly. Before going forward I want to quote Alan R.'s statement in other thread: I have indicated in bold the part ( 'broadly similar' ) because what is ...

LOL. You have no idea what you are saying, unless it is manufactured obfuscation. :)

Yeah, but in this subdiscussion we are not doing that. This is about understanding the integrand and the integrating variables in the integration operation.

This comparison is dependent upon what integrating variable (say frequency or wavelength, or some other continuous function of any of them) and what transformation to the integrand (say energy vs. ...

I'm not sure if the value of 'b' has anything to do with what was being pointed out here.

That is a good way of putting it. What is so surprising in the fact that if you have two different numbers a, and b (say luminosity curve values) then you can always pick two other numbers c and d ...

Here is how to see the connection. Usually, an independent selection of k objects out of n is considered Binomial . However, here k means distinguishable entities or objects. When that element of ...

You definitely have reading comprehension issues. :) Here is what you bolded: "Anyway, this line of thought that photon count is an integer is not that useful for the nature of this thread, IMHO." ...

Do you have reading comprehension issues? :) Where did I say that photon count is not an integer? Heck, the word count by definition would mean so. I just said that this info by itself is not ...

Please reread the part of my response that you removed from the quoted text. The integrating variables (wavelength or frequency) are continuous. And, the notion that photon count is a positive ...

Yeah, but photon count is not the integrating variable. That is either wavelength or frequency, which is continuous. Or could be a different continuous function of wavelength or frequency. Furtherm ...

IMHO, I'm not sure if the terminology regarding 'quantum' and 'continuous' is being used here correctly, if quantum is supposed to mean some variant of number of photons, as opposed to some variant of

Thanks for clarification.

I could be confused. But, I'm no expert. IMHO, a layman is able to understand that 'total light' means some sort of a number that describes 'volume' of light collected. And, also expects it to have ...

Thanks for the info. The formula that I wrote above is derived from 1 arc minute criterion. 3400 = 1/ sin(1/60 degrees). And, is similar in nature to Fig 2 in the pdf you linked. Thanks. Good info.

A formula based upon certain human visual features is: optimal_viewing_distance = 3400 / num_of_scan_lines * picture_height So if you want 1.5X picture height, then it appears it should have 2267 ...

There we go again. A simple matter such as exposure / light and all that theoretical physics, QM, QFT. IMHO, it appears that the experts on this thread seem more confused than the laymen or ...

If you are going to this level of detail then it may be instructive to point out the following. Technically, negative binomial (different from regular binomial), but in approx it becomes Poisson. I ...
