Re: Limits!Hi gAr; 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. #81 20110630 00:03:52

Re: Limits!I have reported many problems to both Mathematica and Maple. I was a beta tester for Mupad. These experiences left me with bad feeling for reporting errors. They do not listen.

Re: Limits!Did not mean to sound so negative. Perhaps it is not as bad as I see it. Just seems that everything has become so commercialized. Only money counts and how to get it as quickly as possible. 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.

Re: Limits!Yeah, that's true. "Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense"  Buddha? "Data! Data! Data!" he cried impatiently. "I can't make bricks without clay." #87 20110630 00:50:02
Re: Limits!Good idea! Most habits rot your brain. Over here they are trying to make eating a costly habit. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Limits!Hi gAr; Is that a z in the exponent? 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. #100 20110630 20:35:29
Re: Limits!Ugh, I wrote z there? "Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense"  Buddha? "Data! Data! Data!" he cried impatiently. "I can't make bricks without clay."
