Re: Tricky integral of a rational functionHi gAr; 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. #27 20110717 20:41:44

Re: Tricky integral of a rational functionHow can they say it can be done only by a few?!

Re: Tricky integral of a rational functionhi bobbym and gAr is where the values are approximately a = 0.709546081 b = 0.339510641 c = 0.562755113 d = 0.111761451 e = 2.14679097 f = 0.548727908 That’s as close as I can get. Now, can someone explain Cauchy to me please?

Re: Tricky integral of a rational functionhi bobbym,
Also are you able to check the factorisation by multiplying it out in Mathematica for me? Last edited by bob bundy (20110718 21:04:34) You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #39 20110718 21:13:51
Re: Tricky integral of a rational functionHi Bob;
That is the easy part. This the formula I am trying to use. But if each residue is 0 then the sum of all of them will be 0. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Tricky integral of a rational functionHi bobbym, Can't proceed, though!

Re: Tricky integral of a rational functionHi gAr; I never got anywhere. What did you do to get yours? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Tricky integral of a rational function
That's my problem too, no complete example...

Re: Tricky integral of a rational function
I can not stand that. It is so frustrating. The book I have is full of incomplete examples. I can get very little from it. I never mentioned it but I consider that worse than the odd numbered exercises. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Tricky integral of a rational functionAnd one day even the authors cannot understand it, when they forget.

Re: Tricky integral of a rational functionTrue! But at least they did know at one time. Thanks to the way they do the example their readers will never know!

Re: Tricky integral of a rational functionHow would people feel if the journals they buy also contain stuff like that?!
