Re: Bafflers?Hi; I am not getting that b?a is at 2.92 is less than at b/a at 0.32.... But also 2.92 is not a maximum value either. 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. #827 20120919 21:50:49

Re: Bafflers?Glad you enjoyed it. You solved it analytically? 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: Bafflers?Very much so.

Re: Bafflers?Hmmm. How about posting it? 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. #834 20120920 00:56:36

Re: Bafflers?Do you know how to turn your approximate answer into an exact expression? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Bafflers?Depends on what kind of answer it is. Why?

Re: Bafflers?This x coordinate and the maximum do you know how to get an exact answer (possibly)? In other words, you have a floating point answer, it is an approximation, we would like to see no decimals. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Bafflers?That is one way. Yours or somebody else's? 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: Bafflers?To guess at a constant using a PSLQ you need a vector that contains the constants. If it isn't large enough then it will not guess the constant. You can make your vector up filling it with constants or you can use one that is ready made and has millions of constants. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
