Re: Generating FunctionsWow,they totally missed it! 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 #202 20120503 08:42:33
Re: Generating FunctionsMissed what? 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. #203 20120503 08:43:40

Re: Generating FunctionsA game is played. You roll a red die and then roll as many green die as the number on the red die. What is the probability of the sum of the green die equalling 17? 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: Generating FunctionsMy first guess would be a no,but I will have to look at it a little. 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 #207 20120504 03:19:01
Re: Generating FunctionsMaybe the coeff of x**17 in ((x+x**2+x**3+x**4+x**5+x**6)+ (x+x**2+x**3+x**4+x**5+x**6)**2+(x+x**2+x**3+x**4+x**5+x**6)**3+ (x+x**2+x**3+x**4+x**5+x**6)**4+(x+x**2+x**3+x**4+x**5+x**6)**5+ (x+x**2+x**3+x**4+x**5+x**6)**6)/6?

Re: Generating FunctionsThat is almost correct except there is an error. Do you see it? 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. #209 20120504 03:30:17
Re: Generating FunctionsOh,yeah,I wasn't really sure about that division by six. Thinking about it again it seems logical not to include it.

Re: Generating FunctionsWithout that 6 down there we would have a combinatorics problem but this is a probability problem. 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. #211 20120504 03:33:42
Re: Generating FunctionsWell,I need to divide by what we get when we sub x=1.

Re: Generating FunctionsBut as it stands with or without that 6 the answer is not correct. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Generating FunctionsIs the GF okay?

Re: Generating FunctionsWe have not even established the need for one but that one is not right. 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. #215 20120504 03:40:05

Re: Generating FunctionsIt needs some work done on it. 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: Generating FunctionsAnything besides mulirplying by a constant?

Re: Generating FunctionsI would think that multiplying by any constant would not fix it. But that is another question. 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. #219 20120504 03:47:41
Re: Generating FunctionsCouod you tell me where the problem is?

Re: Generating FunctionsDo you have access to a CAS right now? 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: Generating FunctionsNot right now. Phone.

Re: Generating FunctionsRemember any answer is not any good unless it is arrived at in two different ways. Two different directions, then you have some certainty. 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: Generating FunctionsI just had an idea! Should those be EGFs instead of OGFs?

Re: Generating FunctionsDoes order count? Is 5 + 3 + 2 different than 3 + 5 + 2? 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. #225 20120504 04:32:55
Re: Generating FunctionsNope. Isn't that why it should be an EGF?
