Re: Church Function

Hi;

It is a question of scaling but this looks like the Empire State Building to me. I used n = 4.

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.

Hi, thanks for the rescaled graph. The Empire State Building reminds me of King Kong.



Here are the graphs (for n=1~8) with equal scaling on the x & y axes.

Re: Church Function

Hi;

I had a slight error in my church function this distorted the graph slightly.

Using equal scaling and the new function the graphs are similar.
