Re: Julianthemath's number 3

Can you please compute asymptotic_a[n]-a[n] for a few n and post it here?

I do not understand that. What is a[n]-a[n]?


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Julianthemath's number 3

The first one is asymptotic_a[n], not just a[n].

Re: Julianthemath's number 3

Isn't that what the those fractions are in post #98 and 100?

Re: Julianthemath's number 3

It is not. Or at least it is not supposed to be. That should be a[n]/asymptotic_a[n].

Yes, you know what I mean. Okay, I will give the differences.

Re: Julianthemath's number 3

Hm, and what do you get for Floor[asymptotic_a[n]] for different n?

Aren't those the sequuence numbers?

Re: Julianthemath's number 3

The floor function is a stepwise function, it is more difficult to work with.

Re: Julianthemath's number 3

Some analytical techniques have problems with anything other than a mathematicians dream like smooth functions. To use them you will have to split the recurrence into 4 of them.

Re: Julianthemath's number 3

Almost any of them also some M techniques too.

For instance take a try to find the series coefficient with M, with and without the floor function.
One will fail the other will not.
