Two special numbers(1) 1.444667861............... Character is who you are when no one is looking. #2 20061015 22:16:55
Re: Two special numbersI remember that 2nd number! There was a topic about it a while ago. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #3 20110725 17:06:00
Re: Two special numbersI agree with (a) but I thought that x^x^x... would be infinite if x>1 because x^x^x>x^x>x, and time ^x is added the amount by which it increases also increases. #4 20110725 18:28:49
Re: Two special numbersHi; Which is approximately 1.111782011041844... Welcome to the forum! 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. #5 20110725 18:50:46
Re: Two special numbershi The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment
