That is incorrect. Where is that posted?

Re: Combinations and Permutations

They never are. There are only two types of problems.

Re: Combinations and Permutations

OGF/EGF classification? Or computer/by hand classification?

Re: Combinations and Permutations

Nope. The ones you can solve and the ones you can not.

Richard says that if you solve them they are trivial.

Re: Combinations and Permutations

Which Richard are we talking about here?

There are combinatorial problems that GFs cannot solve?

Re: Combinations and Permutations

Richard Feynman of course.

I once asked that same question.

Re: Combinations and Permutations

Do you actually have a problem you can claim GFs cannot solve?

Hmmmm. To answer that would be a little bit difficult. I have a strong opinion.

Re: Combinations and Permutations

Have you bumped until now into a combinatorial problem no GF could solve?

Re: Combinations and Permutations

He was really most famous in math for adding the final touches to Godel's work. Along with Alonzo Church they put an end to Hilbert's ideas. From the paper he wrote came a astonishing fact...
