Re: The RRAWhy didn't it output right to me,then?

Re: The RRAYou had a denominator that was too large. 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. #53 20120412 08:55:56
Re: The RRAEstimate the following sum for a PSLQ to 16 digits of precision. I would like to only sum 20 or so terms. Develope a new series that converges that fast. 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: The RRAHi; 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. #56 20120713 00:20:24
Re: The RRAWhen I apply the RRA it doesn't shrink down the number of terms needed.

Re: The RRAHi; That is quite close for only summing 19 terms! 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. #58 20120713 00:35:08
Re: The RRAEight iterations! I do not have that capability by hand and I don't yet have a program to do it for me.

Re: The RRAPoint is, it is converging. Looking the bottom series of all positive terms. Do you not see convergence? How many iterations did you do? 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. #60 20120713 04:00:22
Re: The RRAI see the convergence, but I applied the RRA only 2 times.

Re: The RRASo you got 1 /10 + 1 / 45? Isn't that close to the answer? 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. #62 20120713 04:09:35
Re: The RRAIt is. But the sum we get doesn't converge as fast as we'd like it to. 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 #63 20120713 04:14:44
Re: The RRAWhoa! Do you know many terms you would need of the original series to get the accuracy you have got 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. #64 20120721 10:56:55
Re: The RRAThat's a pretty good idea and i will look into that. But that's a very broad topic. In the mean time if you join one of the forum grpuos like open discussion you can post any questions you may have about claimers and i am sure someone will help you out. #65 20120721 11:26:52
Re: The RRA
No. How many?

Re: The RRAYou have forgotten how to get it? Or you never learned it from our discussions of Taylor series? 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. #67 20120721 13:26:08
Re: The RRAI am the same guy, but I do not like typing math expressions into Wolfram while on the phone. I will do it as soon as I get to my laptop.

Re: The RRAYou will first need to ascertain the accuracy of the answer we are getting without knowing the real answer! 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. #69 20120721 13:34:57
Re: The RRAWhy do that? I just set the tail equal to the desired accuracy and solve it in WA. That is the least I could remember.

Re: The RRAYou are confusing the methods of numerical mathematics with the methods you have been taught. You are confusing the discrete with the continuous. 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: The RRAWhich part of my post are you referring to?

Re: The RRAHas to be the second paragraph. The first is an error. 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. #73 20120721 13:47:49
Re: The RRAWhat is the part I have done wrong while calculating pi?

Re: The RRAThe first sentence is clearly wrong. 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. #75 20120721 13:54:01
Re: The RRAYeah, not the whole tail. I set the absolute value of the general term to the 0.5*10**number of accurate digits required and solve it to get how many terms I need to sum.
