Re: Oh,Oh,Oh,merry analysis!!!

It would be interesting to see one, though.

Re: Oh,Oh,Oh,merry analysis!!!

An algorithm with a O(n^n^n^n)?

2^2^2^2 = 65536

Do you have any idea what 3^3^3^3 is?


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Oh,Oh,Oh,merry analysis!!!

Yes, I do. But imagine an algorithm of complexity O(G_n) where G_n is the Graham's number except that it uses n instead of 3 everywhere.

Forget that Graham's number kaboobly doo, what is your estimate of 3^3^3^3?

It has around 3.6*10^12 digits.

1.342*10^20, the 1.342 is the mantissa.

Hi;

Those are the first 3 digits of the exponent.

Hi;

Yes, I know but what are the front digits. The mantissa!

I am getting that as the mantissa.

Re: Oh,Oh,Oh,merry analysis!!!

That is the number of digits. That is the same as the exponent of the answer. But it is not the mantissa of the answer.

Re: Oh,Oh,Oh,merry analysis!!!

That is the point! Wolfram can not do 3^3^3^3. But we can still get an answer!

Re: Oh,Oh,Oh,merry analysis!!!

Yes and any other branch of math! In a school problem you can only use the material you just learned. Usually just the last chapter of the textbook covered. In the real world there are no bounds! Any technique that gets an answer is good.
