Re: Bus stop

Very good! I wish him good luck.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?
Combinatorics is Algebra and Algebra is Combinatorics.

Re: Bus stop

Hi anna_gg;

Your welcome. Just do not let him turn into one of those math types that start every proof with the words, "let g be a group" or "let G be a metric." 441 pages later they finish off with "which is what we set out to prove!"

Hi anna_gg;

I was just being cynical or ugly or cynically ugly. I suppose that even those people have a place in the world.
