Re: Is this cool with you?Why is that? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #1377 20120306 07:45:09
Re: Is this cool with you?I don't know.Maybe because he was always behind Euler.Whatever Euler did this one also did, but worse. The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #1378 20120306 07:52:20
Re: Is this cool with you?Not exactly. He along with Descartes is the father of Analytical geometry. He and Pascal did the first work that we now call Probaility. He developed a rudimentary calculus before Newton and Leibniz. As a number theorist he was one of the best that ever lived. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Is this cool with you?Still, I think lesser of him that of other mathematicians.Maybe that's just because in our literature he is very much presented as a guy who was often wrong. The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #1380 20120306 08:03:13
Re: Is this cool with you?About what? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #1381 20120306 08:54:50
Re: Is this cool with you?About his answers to some problems. Most of them are said to have their first answers given correctly by Euler.

Re: Is this cool with you?Those were to conjectures he formed. That does not detract from his many great contributions. If he was not one of the great mathematicians of all time, he certainly was the greatest amateur one. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #1383 20120306 09:04:08
Re: Is this cool with you?That may be.I also wonder why I always mixed Gauss and Euler.

Re: Is this cool with you?Personally, I like Euler better. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Is this cool with you?One of mine as well. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #1387 20120306 09:26:42

Re: Is this cool with you?Abraham DeMoivre, Herbert S. Wilf, Doron Zeilberger, Kummer, Fermat, Legendre, Lagrange, Forman S. Acton. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Is this cool with you?One of those has a funny name.I know only half of those.

Re: Is this cool with you?Heck, I only know a third of them. Who the heck is Wilf? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Is this cool with you?I do not, let's ask the guy in post 1389. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Is this cool with you?It's on my touch screen mobile phone keyboard, so it's even more disguising, but at least I get to brag about it.
