Examine this series and say what you think it means to you.To make the series you start at zero. Then you add one, and one, and two and two, and three, and 3, and 4, and 4, and 5 and 5 and 6 and 6 and 7 and 7, and continue with two of each increasing natural number. igloo myrtilles fourmis #2 20100811 05:23:11

Re: Examine this series and say what you think it means to you.Hi John;
Next one is 729 and the after that is 756, isn't that interesting enough! with a1 = 0 , a2 = 1, ... Except for 2 there is not a single prime! 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. #6 20100811 09:39:10
Re: Examine this series and say what you think it means to you.This sequence can also be written as: Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #7 20100811 09:46:19
Re: Examine this series and say what you think it means to you.Yes, you guys are smarter than me. igloo myrtilles fourmis #8 20100811 10:10:09

For instance: 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.
