Hi MIF;

Thanks for providing that.


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.

Poor people. They had to know Latin and Greek and math.


The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't.
