Re: So this is what was happeningHey, you have a new signature! 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 #77 20120713 04:15:58
Re: So this is what was happeningThat is very observant of you. The fact that it has been there for over a month... 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. #78 20120713 04:20:26
Re: So this is what was happeningI am talking about the second sentence. The one about lazy peopls getting rewards and stuff.

Re: So this is what was happeningIt wasn't there a month ago.

Re: So this is what was happeningHmmm. You have proof? 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. #82 20120713 04:27:44
Re: So this is what was happeningNo. But neither do you that it was there then.

Re: So this is what was happeningI do not need proof. It tells me something about the way your mind works. 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. #84 20120713 04:30:38
Re: So this is what was happeningBy now my mind is an open book to you. If you didn't find out anything about how my mind works, you certainly ain't gonna.

Re: So this is what was happeningNowadays, I have no time for such things. 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. #86 20120713 04:36:47

Re: So this is what was happeningWhy the derivative? 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. #90 20120713 06:42:55
Re: So this is what was happeningSo I can sum the probability of getting a result multiplied by that result. That gives me what the result will be on average when I put x=1.

Re: So this is what was happeningIt yields a good answer for 123456787654321.

Re: So this is what was happeningHow did you compute the answer for 123456787654321? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: So this is what was happening
I just plugged in 1 for x in my GF above.
