Re: Can you suggest six names of great mathematicians quickly?
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. #27 20120616 18:23:08

Just a little math humor. 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. #33 20120617 13:02:55

Re: Can you suggest six names of great mathematicians quickly?The wikipedia says that the Fibonacci Sequence is a complete sequence which means any integer can be expressed as a sum of fibonacci numbers.

Re: Can you suggest six names of great mathematicians quickly?Hi Agnishom;
Trust me it is just a story. I hoped it would make you laugh. 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: Can you suggest six names of great mathematicians quickly?Would you show it here please? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun.

Re: Can you suggest six names of great mathematicians quickly?Hi Bob
The theorem states that you can write any number as a sum of nonadjacent Fibonacci numbers not including F[1] , which means that a Fibonacci number must be written as a sum of only one element  itself, as you stated in the first part of the sentence. 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 #47 20120623 05:41:41
Re: Can you suggest six names of great mathematicians quickly?Ok. I thought I was just proving that a sum of Fs is always possible. (post #34) You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #48 20120623 05:54:13
Re: Can you suggest six names of great mathematicians quickly?I tried reading your proof, but my tiny mind couldn't comprehend it. That is why I am providing a link of something I have barely comprehended: 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 #49 20120623 11:22:48

Re: Can you suggest six names of great mathematicians quickly?I have seen it. It is worth it to try posting it again.
