Hi Rod

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

Could you give me an example?

Well e.g.:

If I wanted to skip to a page I know there is a nice problem (say page 57 out of 93) the I would need to click about 18 times to get to it.See the problem? Try going bigger. Page 132 out of 297.

Hi MIF;

Thanks, I did not know 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.
