Re: Sequences!Yes, it can't have a general term! "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." #27 20110814 07:52:35

Re: Sequences!Hi; 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. #30 20110826 23:09:47

Re: Sequences!If you read generatingfunctionology then you should be a little bit conversant with the concept. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Sequences!i find finding taylor and maclaurin series very amusing.

Re: Sequences!hi
Not if your goal is to fly to London.but if your goal is to build a plane that can fly to london,now that's a different thing.and there's no math in there.

Re: Sequences!Some things you just do a few times and after that you let technology handle it. For instance; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Sequences!Everybody does that once in their life. I once did the calculation for 500 light years in terms of miles. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Sequences!u see i like it when i ask someone to give me a number and then i take a square root of it by hand.

Re: Sequences!A Taylor series in its most basic form is an attempt to approximate some function by a really big polynomial. 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. #44 20110827 08:06:29
Re: Sequences!that i know.

Re: Sequences!Yes, but do you know what that really means? 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. #46 20110827 08:31:58
Re: Sequences!I love them. the approximation proving is intense, it's like love. I see clearly now, the universe have the black dots, Thus I am on my way of inventing this remedy... #47 20110827 08:38:20
Re: Sequences!That is actually the secondary by far aspect of them. They were created to compute things. Numbers! Fact is we know everything about polynomials and little about any non  linear function. It is only natural to want to represent everything in terms of polynomials. Your calculator, computer and all the guys used them for precisely that purpose. The whole field of numerical analysis is really nothing more than a study of taylor series.

Re: Sequences!You know the value sin(x)=0 then you derivate both sides and get sin(x) = p. then you just derivate on and on... I see clearly now, the universe have the black dots, Thus I am on my way of inventing this remedy... #49 20110827 20:16:59
