### Oh,Oh,Oh,merry analysis!!!

hi guys

i wonder if you can guess what this topic is about from the title.anyway i have recently started looking into this a little,so i'm wondering if you can give a few problems for me to do?

What kind of analysis?

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
90% of mathematicians do not understand 90% of currently published mathematics.
I am willing to wager that over 75% of the new words that appeared were nothing more than spelling errors that caught on.

So then you are trying to do Big Oh, or Landau notation as it is sometimes called?

Correct!!!

so,can you give me some relatively simpler problems i could do?

Simplify

f(x)=6x^9+8x^8+11 using Big O notation.

i'm not sure what's meant by that.do you mean just

f(x)=O(x^9) ?

Yes, that is correct.

What is the meaning of the Big O notation here:

hi

well maybe that other terms are of "order" greater or equal to x^4.i saw this ex. on wiki.didn't read it carefully.

EDIT:i just looked at the wiki article.it means that the error of calculating the abs. difference e^x-1-x-x^2/2-x^3/6 is less in value than c*|x^4| for some const. c>0

Big-O is like a sort-of estimation of the maximum or minimum or something near the answer.
Big-O square or Big-O log base 10, etc...

hi JEF

i read about that.but i think that the O(log x) does not really need a base specified.
