### Re: Behavior of atoms in a 2D universe with different physics (no kinetic energy)

Thank you for your replies ! LaserGuy : By "pushing" do you actually mean "non-interacting"? Yes, you are right, with the local agitation, atoms that meet (and do not react) just cross each other. But for molecules It's different, they are bigger, they can block an atom moving i...

It is possible to have x'=f(x,y) and y'=g(x,y) ?

Yes, I still agree with you.

But my problem is to find this prices that maximize the number of exchanges or traded quantities!

For the difference with a stock market, in my barter system there is no money.

A person may request A for B, another B for C and another C for A. That is the worry.

### Re: Colors format conversion

For the P format, if the sum is not equal to 1, we can say that the difference is completed by a white pigment.

For example, for a gradient of cyan which is composed of x percent of white:

P(1-x ,0, 0) = L(1-x, 0, 0)
