e^x, log(x), and sin(x) walked into a pub, but they were thrown out because it didn't cater for functions.

Q: What do you get when you cross a mosquito with a mountaineer? A: Nothing - you can't cross a vector with a scalar.

Wanted to mention the new book : "Equatum Puzzles"

It's a new type of puzzle, extending the concept of cryptarithms to create something intriguing.

Check it out, they would love to hear your feedback.

Regrettably they are not (yet) in the Fediverse, but here are some links:

Follow-up question:

Given your suggested vendor, what balls would you recommend for working on 5? I use 250gm thuds (or similar) from Oddballs.

Some assistance and advice requested of my friends, colleagues, and contacts in the USA.

A friend of mine is a perfectly capable 3 ball juggler, but is thinking about getting more serious with (a) tricks with 3, and (b) juggling 5.

So he's looking for some juggling balls with a bit of heft, and of reasonable quality. He says: "Not the Ferrari of juggling balls, more like a nice Honda."

Buying on-line is fine, provided it's from a reputable vendor.

So, suggestions? Thanks in advance.
