A new approach in CalculusHi all, #2 20110724 23:57:57
Re: A new approach in Calculushi safp7 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 #3 20110725 00:01:57

Re: A new approach in CalculusHi safp7; 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 05:15:49

Re: A new approach in CalculusHi;
The only part of it that I can understand is what I learned through numerical analysis. Discretizing happens all the time there! DE's are approximated by very small straight lines, curves are fit by using splines, areas are done by stuffing trapezoids inside them, sums replace integrals and differences replace derivatives.
