Re: EquationHi Leroy; 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. #52 20121021 14:17:31
Re: EquationI have understood everything quite well,but I don't understand what is the logic for taking the convergents,is there any rule for which convergent will be the solution? #53 20121021 15:13:38
Re: EquationThere is a theorem that says that. This is not something I just cooked up, I wished I had. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
