Re: Experimental mathematics

Where does it come from?


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: Experimental mathematics

I don't know to evaluate the sum by hand.

Hi;

I meant the idea?

Re: Experimental mathematics

After going through techniques to sum the series I saw that few sums were easy to solve as integrals and vice versa!

Re: Experimental mathematics

Hi;

I did not think about doing that.

Okay, it works like a charm sometimes!

Re: Experimental mathematics

I wonder where they got that integral from in the first place.

Re: Experimental mathematics

Maybe some randomly thought out integral.
I have got a few when trying differentiation under the integral sign.

Re: Experimental mathematics

I agree, it is hard to imagine that is connected to a real problem.

Re: Experimental mathematics

Do you have the link to the source of the problem?

Re: Experimental mathematics

It is mentioned in a couple of places that talk about experimental math but I can not think of them offhand.

Re: Experimental mathematics

Okay, I could not find after some searching, is it from math.se?

Re: Experimental mathematics

No, I do not think so. I will try to find the links for you but it may take a while.

Re: Experimental mathematics

Thanks for coming in.

I am sorry but I am unable to find any of the links of the original paper.
